Accuracy in Media

CNN, which President Trump has repeatedly referred to as “fake news,” fired a salvo in its battle with the White House by launching a clock on its website to track how long it has been since Trump attacked someone on Twitter:

CNN explained that while Trump spoke in more measured tones during his joint session speech to Congress on Tuesday, they think he could still launch a Twitter attack at any moment:
“President Donald Trump won praise from pundits and political allies for his more measured tones during Tuesday night’s address to a joint session of Congress. At one point in the speech, he even declared that ‘the time for trivial matters has passed.’
But Trump’s pivot to mellower rhetoric is actually a few days old. He hasn’t knocked, tweaked or attacked anyone on Twitter since Sunday afternoon, when he claimed, ‘Russia talk is FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks!’
We’ll see how long it lasts—literally. So far, he’s gone..”
So much for objective journalism.
UPDATE:  CNN has officially retired the clock after President Trump blamed the controversy surrounding Attorney General Jeff Sessions on sore loser Democrats, “illegal leaks” and a”witch hunt.”
