In an interview with The Hill’s Joe Concha, MSNBC president Phil Griffin joked that he wished that MSNBC would get the same treatment from Donald Trump that CNN receives.
“I wish he called us out once in awhile because it’s like a promo for CNN all the time,” Griffin joked. “But look, all I know is, day to day, I think we’re giving the most unique, smartest coverage out there.”
Griffin was referring to President Trump frequently calling CNN “fake news,” and highlighting just how biased the liberal media’s news coverage has been against the Trump administration.
Maybe Griffin will get his wish if MSNBC manages to crawl out of its third-place status in the ratings and become relevant enough for Trump to notice.
