After CNN was forced to correct their most recent fact-challenged story, Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter and hammered the cable news net. After Trump Jr’s criticism of CNN, this angle taken by the Washington Post, and it caught the eyes of many:
CNN botched a story about Trump Jr. — who claims, without evidence, that reporters "got played" https://t.co/8J80mGs8xt
— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) December 9, 2017
Well isn’t that a turn of events? Notice how the antagonist now isn’t CNN?
The Washington Post is really a incredible collection of imbeciles. CNN launches another fake news “bombshell” and the buffoons at the WaPo try to blame Don Jr. This is really a special kind of stupid. https://t.co/mtNwlxYRL0

Haha, WaPo finds a way to turn this into a critique of Trump Jr. https://t.co/8tHmdpbZrm

The Post’s headline at least earns a “Junior #FakeNews” gold star for effort.

Is this really how you want to phrase this, WaPo? Either CNN "got played"- or it was purposeful. Trump Jr's being charitable here. https://t.co/tyXYZc7yk8
