Yellow Journalists At CNN Get Feelings Hurt When Trump Calls Them Fake News

CNN and some of its staff are trying ineffectively, to strike back at President Trump after he suggested that the network and its international arm were spreading “fake news” around the world.

Trump’s most recent broadside at CNN came in a tweet Saturday evening, when he accused the network of representing the U.S. “very poorly” across the globe and claimed that the semi-conservative Fox News is domestically “more important,” reports The Hill.

CNN’s anchor Jake Tapper and national security correspondent Jim Sciutto, rushed to the defense of CNN International with their own tepid tweets.

“realDonaldTrump My CNNi & CNN colleagues regularly risk their lives in #Syria #Iraq #Afghanistan #Niger and beyond, following US Troops into war-zones, chronicling natural disasters, holding dictators to account & profiling everyday heroes,” Sciutto wrote on Twitter.

“Thinking about cnn and my brave and hard-working colleagues there who cover famines and wars and politics and terrorism and everything else,” Tapper tweeted. “Amazing men and women, thank you for your continued excellence.”

Trump’s tweet also drew a direct response from CNN itself.

The network responded to the president in a tweet saying that it is, in fact, Trump’s job to represent the U.S. abroad — not CNN’s.

“It’s not CNN’s job to represent the U.S to the world. That’s yours. Our job is to report the news,” the network wrote from its public relations account.

But let’s remember who we’re talking about here folks… It’s CNN. Seriously, it’s just CNN. They were a joke when they first came on the scene, and only gained household recognition by becoming a tabloid quality leftist propaganda agency.

They are easily the largest propagator of Yellow Journalism in the world, with perhaps the only competition coming from the New York Times and the Washington Post, and none of them can be trusted.

A wise person always listens & reads with a grain of salt, should they be presented with news from CNN, NYT, WaPo and other left-wing outlets, because they report with rumors and emotions, not facts.
