Trump to rude CNN hack: ‘You are fake news’ — Video

Trump CNN fake newsOn Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump held a press conference in which he labeled CNN “fake news.”  According to Breitbart, Trump refused to take a question from CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta who demanded he take a question.

Trump, Breitbart added, criticized the network for its recent report on him and Russia.  Acosta continued to interrupt Trump, demanding he be allowed to ask a question. Trump replied: “Your organization is terrible. … Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question. … You are fake news.”

Here’s video of the exchange, which prompted applause from some in attendance:

Acosta then proceeded to lecture Trump, telling him his statement was inappropriate.  Later, the CNN operative said his question was asked by ABC’s Cecilia Vega.

CNN later issued a statement defending itself:

Keep in mind this is the network that attacked Trump supporters who didn’t like their biased coverage of the election.  This is also the network that falsely added the word “racial” to comments Trump made on vetting immigrants to help minimize terrorist activity.

At best, CNN’s alleged “reporting” has been biased and one-sided throughout the election season, prompting a UK reporter to call it the “Clinton News Network” during a live interview.

The situation is so bad that CNN is now viewed as the least trusted cable news network.

Worse yet, it doesn’t seem to be very interested in rebuilding the trust it has lost.
