Remember when Chris Cuomo likened being called fake news to someone being called the n-word?
Brian Stelter also seems to have taken issue with the term …
Trump reacting to criticism of the Helsinki presser: "I don't know what the fuss is all about. I think we did extremely well." He defaults to his "fake news" slur. "I think the press largely makes up a lot of the fuss about a lot of things."

He had to know this would just lead to more dragging and embarrassment, right?
He's largely right.

It's not a slur to tell the truth that you guys lie, twist, embargo, and live in the Democrats' pockets.

Hard to feel sorry for any of these people when they so clearly did this to themselves.
A slur that you unethical hacks created in an attempt to de-legitimize a President that you disliked following an election you actively attempted to sabotage as a joke.

Oh, was it a slur, Brian?
Aren't you the guy who knowingly let @davidhogg111 lie on your show and didn't correct him?

The list of things they knew was fake or untrue that they still allowed on their outlet to support their ridiculous narrative is lengthy.
Fake news is now a slur… Ok

Next thing you know Brian will be pushing to make journalists a protected class.
Wait, we shouldn’t give him any ideas.
