“Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the ‘dumbest man on television!’ Bad Reporting,” Trump wrote in an early morning tweet.

Another claim alleged is that the president “sometimes ‘hate-watches’ CNN to get worked up, especially Don Lemon,” despite consistently labeling the network “fake news,” and at one time dubbing it “very fake news.”

The president’s provocative remarks toward the usual fake news suspects follows a week of bad reporting and retractions from numerous media outlets.
After an inaccurate report last week filed by ABC’s Brian Ross cost the reporter his job, Reuters and Bloomberg were next to carry a false report claiming that Deutsche Bank had issued a subpoena on President Trump’s bank accounts, which was later debunked by the Wall Street Journal.
CNN was next to issue a “correction” on a report after it claimed that Donald Trump Jr. had received exclusive access to Wikileaks emails before they were released, but it was later pointed out that the emails were from a later date and already publicly available.

As pointed out by the Daily Caller, Trump has at least on one occasion congratulated Lemon for conducting a fair and professional interview. Maybe there’s hope for him after all.
Great interview tonight @donlemon – very professionally done. @CNN
