On Friday, news broke that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer blocked CNN, known by many as the “Clinton News Network,” among other derogatory names, from its press gaggle. This didn’t sit too well with the network, now seen as the least-trusted name in cable news.

You mean, like the story about a former hospital CEO who lost his job due to a CNN report and is now suing the network? Or the CNN graphic that used a photo of a deceased journalist, claiming he is one of those opposed to Trump’s temporary ban.
There are more examples, but you get the idea.
Reads a little like a scorned girlfriend, does it not? And as you might expect, Twitter didn’t exactly feel sorry for the media giant … you could even say people all but mocked their pain.

Imagine how all the news sources Obama blocked felt while you giggled with him about it.

Even if this troubles you (and it does trouble us), keep in mind CNN and other media outlets really did this to themselves. First they became the propaganda wing of the Left, then they reported fake news to support their agenda and then they called themselves the opposition party to Trump.
What did they expect?
By the way, CNN wasn’t the only outlet that got banned. Politico noted: “Reporters from outlets including the BBC, CNN, New York Times, Los Angeles Times and POLITICO were not permitted.”
- Trump declares NYT, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN ‘enemy of the American people’
- Stupid Democrats fall for fake AP story of nonexistent military deportation force
- Do liberals really want a second bloody civil war over Donald Trump?
- ABC News chief political analyst: Trump undermines Constitution by not calling on mainstream media
- NBC’s Chuck Todd whines: ‘Delegitimizing the press is unAmerican’
