Trump dismisses CNN as ‘fake news’ then immediately takes a question from Breitbart

Donald Trump‘s press conference this Wednesday was a site to behold. It was his usual rambling back and forth between deflecting questions and apologizing for Russia, but one of the most surreal moments came when he slandered an established news organization in favor of a discredited one.

During the press conference, Trump labeled CNN as a “fake news” organization, a claim that’s silly on its face, but likely in response to CNN’s report that Russia allegedly has compromising “personal and financial” information on Trump.

When CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to direct a question at Trump, it devolved into a shouting match.

“Since you’re attacking us, can you give us a question?” Acosta asked.

“Not you, not you, your organization is terrible,” Trump shot back. “I am not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”

After he shut down Acosta, Trump took a question from Breitbart News , a website connected with the “alt-right” that regularly publishes false stories.

According to ThinkProgress, here’s the question Trump took from Breitbart:

“[With] all the problems that we’ve seen throughout the media over the course of the election, what reforms do you recommend for this industry here?”
