On early Saturday Trump tweeted ”Fox News is much more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!”
About four hours later CNN decided to respond back by saying ”It’s not CNN’s job to represent the U.S to the world,” the network’s public relations team tweeted. “That’s yours. Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst.”
These tweets sparked controversy on both sides. President Trump has constantly attacked CNN calling it “Fake News”. However, this tweet does show even more bias against Trump. Sure, Trump attacked first, but his job is not to report facts and news to the American People.
Saturday’s comments come as the Justice Department’s attempts to block a potential merger between AT&T and Time Warner are under scrutiny. The Justice Department has reportedly told AT&T to sell CNN’s parent company, though AT&T denied that it offered to do so.
