CNN’s Jim Acosta Blasts Trump For Holding ‘Fake News Conference’ Overseas
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta suggested President Donald Trump held a “fake news conference” in Poland on Thursday because he took a question from a reporter who is “essentially an ally of the White House,” but failed to note that he took questions from less sympathetic sources as well.
During the joint news conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Trump took a question from U.K. Daily Mail reporter David Martosko, who has publicly admitted he spoke with Trump about a possible position in the administration.
Martosko asked the president about his tweet Sunday of a GIF showing Trump tackling a man with the CNN logo superimposed on his head.
Trump made the case that CNN’s overtly negative coverage of his administration is causing the news network problems.
“I think what CNN did was unfortunate for them, as you know now they have some pretty serious problems,” Trump said, likely in a reference to CNN’s decision to mask the identity of a private citizen responsible for making the GIF Trump tweeted on the condition the man no longer engage in what CNN considers to be “ugly behavior.”
“They have been fake news for a long time. They have been covering me in a very dishonest way,” Trump said.
“I will say that CNN has really taken it too seriously and I think they’ve hurt themselves very badly,” Trump said. “What we want to see is honest, beautiful, free — but honest — fair press.”
The president also criticized NBC for being “equally as bad” despite the success he brought to the network with his former reality show, The Apprentice.
CNN’s Jim Acosta took issue with Trump taking a question from a “friendly reporter” and attacking his network as “fake news.”
