#President Donald Trump has blasted several media outlets accusing them of being "#fake news" in the month since his election (if one can even believe it's been a month). The New York Times, CNN and Buzzed are among several news sources that have been "disinvited" to Trump's press conferences, mostly because he isn't a fan of how they have portrayed him.
CNN responds to their ban
Donald Trump and his cronies have had a long-standing feud with CNN since his election, which culminated in his advisor KellyAnne Conway being banned from the network.
In retaliation, Trump has said CNN is no longer welcome at his press conferences. The news channel wasted very little time in responding, and did so officially on Twitter:
"This is an unacceptable development by the Trump #White House. Apparently this is how they retaliate when you report facts they don't like.
We will keep reporting regardless."
No doubt that CNN, whom Trump has dubbed the "Clinton News Network" will continue to be a trusted and reliable source of information to the public.
Buzzfeed also on the chopping block
Buzzfeed was also "uninvited" to the White House. They have had a long-standing feud with him ever since they leaked a report that Trump had hired Russian prostitutes to urinate in the bed that Barack and Michelle Obama shared when visiting the country.
An official report from Buzzfeed came from Ben Smith on the account of Washington Post reporter Erik Wemple. They wrote:
"While we strongly object to the White House's apparent attempt to punish news outlets whose coverage it does not like, we will not let these latest antics distract us from continuing to cover this administration fairly and aggressively."
It is likely that Trump took a dislike to Buzzfeed, the online news source, due not only to the leaked information but also its left-leaning politics. As a website that caters to the younger set, Buzzfeed does tend to criticize many of Trump's policies and executive orders.
But, if you're going to be president, you have to dish it and take it. You can't be a special snowflake, President Trump.
