Trump has been known to attack the corrupt media for being biased against him. But this could be the most epic attack yet. Trump had a press conference and when Jim Acosta repeatedly tried to ask Trump a question, Trump destroyed him and his awful network.
Trump continuously ignored Acosta until Trump couldn’t take it anymore and said “you are fake news.”
Acosta responded, “since you’re attacking us, can you give us a question?” “No, not you,” Trump said.
“You’re attacking our news organization,” Acosta said “Your news organization is terrible,” responded Trump.
This was very blunt, honest, and exactly why we love Trump. CNN responded with a statement later that day mostly trying to separate themselves from the even worse news outlet Buzzfeed.
“CNN’s decision to publish carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government is vastly different than Buzzfeed’s decision to publish unsubstantiated memos. The Trump team knows this. They are using Buzzfeed’s decision to deflect from CNN’s reporting, which has been matched by the other major news organizations,” wrote CNN.
“We are fully confident in our reporting. It represents the core of what the First Amendment protects, informing the people of the inner workings of their government; in this case, briefing materials prepared for President Obama and President-elect Trump last week. We made it clear that we were not publishing any of the details of the 35-page document because we have not corroborated the report’s allegations. Given that members of the Trump transition team have so vocally criticized our reporting, we encourage them to identify, specifically, what they believe to be inaccurate,” wrote CNN.
