Trump is abusing CNN?
This sounds a tad melodramatic to us, Jake. Does that mean Obama was abusing Fox News? Asking for a friend.

From the Washington Post:
The rise of Donald Trump — and his gratuitous attacks on the media — has banished any such aversion in the C suite of CNN. When Trump called CNN “fake news” days before his inauguration, the network jumped in to defend its reporting and correspondent Jim Acosta. After President Trump tweeted a video of him wrestling “CNN” to the ground, the company riffed, “It is a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters. Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the President had never done so. Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea and working on his health care bill, he is involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his.”
Gratuitous attacks on the media.
These poor babies!
But press will still act like children. https://t.co/J7h5wRCgyM

It’s never their fault, man.
CNN's job is to report the news, nothing more.

Can you, @jaketapper, act like an adult and accept Trump is president?

When you exaggerate small stories that suit your narrative and ignore big stories that contradict it, that's not journalism. It is selling 'fake news' and doing so is a bigger lie than all the President's hyperbole combined.

Quiet you. Jake is virtue signaling.
