Presidential candidate Julian Castro (D) praised news organizations for calling Trump a “racist,” saying he believes news outlets must “call a spade a spade.”
“I applaud news organizations that have recognized the need to call a spade and spade and use the word racist,” Castro told BuzzFeed. “I believe he is.”
Castro also said “in some ways, journalism in the Trump era is more challenging than ever” and urged establishment outlets “to stay focused on newsworthiness and not to let a fascination with oddity, or simple timeliness, overtake news judgement about what’s important for readers.”
“The fact that the president just went back on his word to do universal background checks should be front page and these other moves by Trump are likely designed to distract from that,” he continued.
