During Donald Trump’s press conference on Wednesday, CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to ask Trump a question.
Trump refused to grant Acosta a question, telling him his organization was “fake news.”
On Tuesday, BuzzFeed reported memos that supposedly detail Trump’s relationship with Russia, which many media outlets have criticized as not verifiable. CNN reported that Trump received a presentation on Russian hacking from intelligence officials.
Anchor Jake Tapper, whose byline is on the CNN report, tried to make that distinction on Twitter on Wednesday morning:
Efforts today to conflate responsible reporting on IC presentation of 2 page annex with irresponsible posting of uncorroborated 35-pager.
