Of course, Trump’s stance toward CNN is not terribly different from how the Obama administration handled Fox News. That said, somehow we suspect the mainstream media will be slightly more outraged over Trump’s treatment of CNN than they were over Obama’s hostility toward Fox News over the years.
Yeah, and at the same time the conservatives who went after Obama as a coward probably won’t go after Trump. It works both ways.
But either way, CNN doesn’t get to have access just because they’re CNN. If they want to promote fake news they can do that, but the White House is under no obligation to cooperate with any news org. Just like it wasn’t under Obama or anyone else.
