  • WashPost: CNN Set Itself Up for Trump's Weekend Attack

President Trump wants to have a contest between CNN and other news networks - "not including Fox" - to determine which outlet "is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage".

We all know how Donald Trump likes to bash his "enemies" on Twitter, and the CNN network is no exception.

However, the latest Trump attack on CNN attracted some heavyweights into the shouting match, including former CIA and National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden. The outside world does not see the truth from them!, Trump tweeted.

The pattern seems to be that if news is negative about Trump, then it's "fake news".

President Donald Trump proposed on Monday that there should be a contest between news networks where the victor would receive a "fake news trophy".

Scarborough took notice, tweeting, "You care". He added that CNN represents the country poorly to the rest of the world. That's yours. Our job is to report the news.

Stelter said Trump's tweet, whether by design or coincidence, "reads like an invitation to undemocratic regimes around the world to harass CNN journalists with the blessing of the US president".

Former presidential candidate Evan McMullin noted that Trump is lending a hand to authoritarian figures by attacking a network like CNN International. To recap, the tape had audio of Trump bragging to TV host Billy Bush about groping women, and he admitted the recording was him at the time of its publication.

Trump frequently refers to CNN as "fake news" on Twitter.

On Sunday morning, Hayden tweeted his dismay with Trump's comments, going so far as to suggest his career has been "wasted".
