President Trump denounces the “Fake News Media”
Todd Piro reports from New York City.
President Trump slammed The New York Times on Monday morning about what he called a “false” story and claims that he watches slashing up to eight hours of television per day – while taking a page on CNN and MSNBC.
The tweet came as his government was dealing with the response to the rush-hour explosion on Monday morning in New York City. The President was informed about the incident, which will now be described as an attempted terrorist attack.
But soon his attention turned back to the battle with the media, which is already in full swing since last week.
“A false story, this time in the fancy @nytimes that I watch 4-8 hours of television per day – Wrong! Also, I rarely, if ever, CNN or MSNBC, both of which I believe to be Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, I once called the ” dumbest man on TV!’ Bad reporting,” Trump tweeted.

The New York times article detailed Trump the “hour-by-hour struggle for self-preservation,” describes his Twitter habits, and how he absorbed the 24/7-news – much more critical – about his presidency.
The article claimed he spends at least four hours a day, and sometimes twice, a television – “eager to fight back.” The story he also said sometimes “hate-watch” CNN and especially host Don Lemon.
Trump has been on a media-focused, tear-to-day, in the Wake of several high-profile mistakes about the reports on his management and the employees
On Sunday he called the “Fake News” media “out of control”.
“Big lies is written, to be then forced to be withdrawn after they are exposed to,…a stain on America!” he tweeted.
Trump’s comments came after a Washington Post reporter tweeted a misleading picture about the quantity, size, the on Friday, the rally in Pensacola, Fla.
In a now-deleted tweet, the Post’s Dave Weigel posted a photo of a half-empty arena to mock trump to say the Rallye was “Packed to the rafters.”
But the photo was not taken while Trump was being spoken to. Trump tweeted photos of the arena when it was full.
Weigel apologized and deleted the photo.
CNN had to right a story that suggested that the Trump campaign, including Donald Trump Jr, had tipped hacked early on DNC E-Mails of WikiLeaks, if it is later that the Alarm was on material that are already accessible to the public.
CNN said, “CNN is first to report the date that an E-Mail to the members of the Trump campaign on Wikileaks documents, which was confirmed by two sources, of CNN, was wrong. We have updated our story to the correct date and the correct context for the timing of E-Mails.”
