Trump Slams CNN For Their Story About His Ties To Russia - Calls Them A ‘Fake News’ Outlet

Donald Trump was justified in his condemnation of the news media Wednesday morning because reporters “turned on” him during the presidential race, according to Breitbart News.

The president-elect “lambasted the media, forcing a backfire of the industry’s planned efforts to trip him up just hours before his first press conference since last summer,” the right-wing website claimed in an op-ed.

Among Trump’s targets were CNN and BuzzFeed, which he called “fake news” outlets. Both sources published reports about the Russian government allegedly having compromising personal and business information about the incoming commander-in-chief that could be blackmail material. “It was a stunning moment; an indictment of the media class on their own turf — the press conference,” the op-ed stated.

It continued: “The moment was also a snapshot of what senior Trump aides tell Breitbart News is likely to be regular order in a Trump administration, where the president-elect is going to — when he takes office next week — shake up the normal course of business by stripping the dishonest characters in media of their power and rewarding hardworking new media outlets for telling the truth. A rocky road for some, the new direction Trump plans to take was on display as he called for reporters and those in the media profession to be ‘honest’ when they report on his administration moving forward and to prove they have a ‘moral compass.’”
