This is great.
Brian Stelter hit President Trump for using “enemy of the people” against the press, which is now a “slur”. . .
Right before she delivered this speech, Trump tweeted out his "enemy of the people" slur again https://t.co/6cbyXXCxbp

. . . and Soledad O’Brien clapped right back, accusing CNN of promoting fake news of its own:
You guys gave a guy a segment to talk about birtherism—so literally you gave a platform to fake news. And it was pre-taped, so you could have edited it out before air—but you chose to air it.

PUT HER ON YOUR SHOW, BRIAN:
I’d actually check out @ReliableSources if they had you on to confront CNN about their own journalistic shortcomings.

Let us know when you’re done with the “collusion” slur, too:
“Slur.” Lol k. Let us know when you’re done with the collusion conspiracy. https://t.co/03G8kSai1R

Talking about fake news, Christiane Amanpour just got called out for saying the Israeli city of Haifa was in the West Bank (it’s not, of course):
I don't know about "enemy of the people," but it's funny seeing Christiane Amanpour warning against the use of "fake news" a day after she told the CNN audience that Haifa was on the West Bank. https://t.co/dLUt76PcKR

Hamas supporter, human-rights defender . . . no difference, right?
Also before this speech: Amanpour had a segment with a Hamas supporter (who she presented as a humans right attorney) where she identified Haifa as part of the West Bank.
In another segment, Amanour suggested the FBI should have shut down chants at Trump rallies. https://t.co/pFix2hbt9N

And this is the same Amanpour, defender of the press, who asked former FBI Director James Comey why the U.S. government doesn’t ban stories it deems unfit for publication:

Ouch! What will CNN’s Christiane Amanpour think of this update to her Wikipedia page after the Comey interview? https://t.co/0fzcpJAOsK

Wow, it took CNN and Christiane Amanpour for us to actually have a little respect for James Comey https://t.co/Iyr7F0b7rh
