CNN reporter demands camera time at Trump press conference payback


President Donald Trump called CNN "fake news" and slammed NBC during a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Trump claimed that he didn't criticize May in his interview with The Sun, and he even called the report "fake news". "And she's a total professional because when I saw her this morning I said, "I want to apologize because I said such good things about you", and she said, "don't worry, it's only the press". I don't take questions from CNN, ' Trump lectured.

Different continent, same old CNN-hating Trump.

"In today's press conference, I paused while my colleague from CNN went back and forth with President Trump over a question".

Trump's latest invocation of "fake news" put Murdoch's media empire on two continents in the position of having to tell their readers and viewers that the president's characterization of one of their sister outlets was, as the British like to say, bollocks.

"To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is also unfair".

Roberts then began putting his question to the president through the microphone provided to him as the reporter granted a question by the president. Lesson for the kids out there: "no one should ever try to do the right thing with the expectation that it will ever be reciprocated". "Of course it happens to be NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN", he said. John Roberts of Fox. "She is as honest as the day is long", he said.

"Asking smart, tough questions, whether in a presidential press conference or interview, is central to the role a free press plays in a healthy republic", she said.
