GOP Sen. McConnell: I Care What WSJ Says, Not the NY Times Editorial Board

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.) made some remarks at an event held by news organization Axios and did not mince words about the New York Times editorial board.

When asked about criticism from the media, McConnell said [1]:

“I care, for example, what people like Charles Krauthammer and George Will think about me, I care what the Wall Street Journal editorial board thinks about me. I care not a whit what the New York Times editorial page thinks about me so that’s how I deal with the inevitable criticism that comes along with doing a job like this. Whose opinion do you value?”

“Look, you can’t be in this line of work and make everybody happy,” he added.
