CNN Set Itself Up for Trump's Weekend Attack — WashPost

Meanwhile, in his latest tweet on the subject of CNN, Trump suggested we have a "contest" to determine which of the coverage of "your favorite President (me)" is the most "dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted".

We all know how Donald Trump likes to bash his "enemies" on Twitter, and the CNN network is no exception.

"The outside world does not see the truth about them", he said. He has at various times dubbed it "fake news" or the "Clinton News Network".

In the tweet, the president once again decries CNN as fake news, this time arguing that CNN International "represents our Nation to the world very poorly".

CNN's communications team fired back minutes later, tweeting, "It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S to the world". "That's yours. Our job is to report the news", adding "#FactsFirst".

Scarborough took notice, tweeting, "You care". One, all of mainstream media is "fake news", a term that he falsely claimed to have invented.

Trump has also been critical of the proposed merger of telecommunications giant AT&T and media company Time Warner, which owns CNN, calling it last week "a deal that's not good for the country". Given the context, Trump's attack on CNN seems particularly timely.

Trump on Saturday ripped CNN while praising Fox News, saying the conservative-leaning network is "more important in the United States than CNN".

The President also criticized another news organization Monday that he regularly calls out for its negative coverage of him, NBC, saying "their rates are bad, nobody cares!"

After Blitzer spoke, CNN commentator and former State Department spokesman, retired Rear Admiral John Kirby said Trump's tweets are putting in danger the lives of American journalists overseas.
