After Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday in which he assailed the liberal media for publishing unsubstantiated claims and scurrilous charges against him, the liberal media are now arguing over who has the most legitimate story and who’s just ‘fake news’.
It’s descending into a circle firing squad.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
CNN has released a statement trying to distance their reports from BuzzFeed’s decision to publish unverifiable memos about president-elect Donald Trump.
Midday Tuesday, CNN tweeted a full statement from their Twitter account saying,
CNN’s decision to publish carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government is vastly different than BuzzFeed’s decision to publish unsubstantiated memos. The Trump team knows this. They are using BuzzFeed’s decision to deflect from CNN’s reporting, which has been matched by the other major news organisations.
The statement continues,
We are fully confident in our reporting. It represents the core of what the First Amendment protects, informing the people of the inner workings of their government; in this case, briefing materials prepared for President Obama and President-elect Trump last week. We made it clear that we were not publishing any of the details of the 35-page document because we have not corroborated the report’s allegations.
The statement then poses a direct challenge to the transition team of President-elect Trump,
Given that members of the Trump transition team have so vocally criticized our reporting, we encourage them to identify, specifically, what they believe to be inaccurate.
