As Twitchy told you earlier, CNN journalists rushed to the defense of a colleague who tweeted about what she claims a guest at the White House National Day of Prayer event said to her:
A guest at the White House for the National Day of Prayer event tells me I am “pitiful and disgusting” for reporting that President Trump reimbursed his attorney for the $130,000 he paid a porn actress. I think you’re gonna have to take that up with Trump, sir.

It’s entirely possible that the annoyance at CNN’s WH journo wasn’t necessarily over what she was reporting, but when she was reporting it:
Slightly awkward moment in the Rose Garden as National Day of Prayer reception guests await the president. All quiet except for the sound a CNN reporter doing piece to camera about Stormy Daniels. Some giggles some questioning glances. pic.twitter.com/OKHlXQsKw9

Ah, the annoyance with CNN’s reporter makes a little more sense now!

From the Washington Examiner:
CNN aired a segment on porn actress Stormy Daniels live from the White House just as an event recognizing religious freedom began.
President Trump recognized Thursday as the “National Day of Prayer” and welcomed religious leaders to celebrate at the White House, where reporters were covering the event.
As a choir was brought on stage to perform, CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins was brought on air for a live shot to discuss the latest developments about Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the payments to Daniels.
CNN reporters, in defending their colleague, didn’t mention the timing of the report that apparently is what sparked annoyance among guests at the event.
Stay classy, CNN.

And yet they’re totally baffled as to why so many people roll their eyes at the mainstream media.
