Trump Criticizes NBC News over ‘Fake News’ on Wiretapping

President Donald Trump has railed against the mainstream media networks and outlets, calling them “fake news” and criticizing them for citing anonymous sources who have been later proven to be wrong on multiple stories.

This latest example of fake news occurred when NBC News claimed that federal law enforcement was listening in on phone calls made to and from Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

Later, the outlet clarified and corrected their story, stating that the authorities obtained a list of phone calls to and from Cohen’s phone and not the content of their conversations.

As a response, President Trump tweeted [1] about how NBC News is as bad as “Fake News CNN” in misreporting the facts.
