Trump Was Hammering CNN In 1990 For Fake News: “When People Say Something False I Attack Those People”


Before hashtags, Russian hackers or fake news were ever a thing, businessman Donald Trump had already had enough of the inaccurate reporting from mainstream media entities like CNN.

In 1990, the future President joined the network for an interview in which he hammered the interviewer about the news channel’s inaccurate and biased reporting.

Even then, just as 24-hour cable news networks were in their infancy, it was a shock to reporters, whose credibility had never really been questioned, especially in front of their own audiences.

When people say something false I attack those people… because the news gets away with murder… the news media… they get away with murder.

The media is so protected and it’s ridiculous they’re so protected… they can write virtually anything… The difference is with me at least with me they pay some price… and I think more people should have that attitude and I think you’d find a lot more accurate reporting, including yours.
