CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is basically making the argument that it’s perfectly fine for the Left-wing media to prop up a murderous dictatorship because the president has called some news fake.
You don’t think having a President who lies about what is “fake” and actively maligns the free press out of convenience is a bigger reason for animosity toward us than how some decide to cover this bs? https://t.co/xyaZ3HRYIS

This pathetic defense of the indefensible was immediately blown to bits.
No Chris what you seem not able to grasp is your network’s TMZ style coverage & your peers fawning fangirling of murderous dictatorships enables & empowers him. https://t.co/LDCh2L9owl

Everyone say it with me now:
You don’t have to like Trump —
but Kim Jong Un is so much worse.
If you don’t understand the difference between a nation’s leader sending out some stupid tweets and a nation’s leader running a prison state, you should just walk away from journalism. https://t.co/CgZf2L2wIM

How is that so difficult for some to grasp?
To answer your question Chris, no, Trump is not worse than the Kims. https://t.co/kpSf3Q6Uie

There is a reason Trump's "fake news" resonates with so many. Last night's celebration of NK among the press proved the point precisely. Press destroyed its own credibility by hating Trump more than loving the truth. https://t.co/wBE3TpkhT4

Where have you been the last 30 years before Trump?
It is almost like you hate Trump so much you will be in favor of the worlds most unpredictable threat,

Hey Fredo, if you are not going to be a man and stand up against your own profession's evil cheerleading of a murderous dictatorship, just don't talk at all. It's frankly embarrassing. @ChrisCuomo https://t.co/k5c9Z2IRhW

If they had not already indicted themselves with slobbering coverage of North Korea, they have assuredly done so with the tired “but Trump!” line of defense.
