Trump Strikes Back at CNN for Spreading Fake News

This is exactly why you need to corroborate sources before you just publish any old thing.
Trump scolded the network during his press conference on Wednesday and refused to take a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta.
“Your organization is terrible, don’t be rude,” the president-elect said. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”
Trump accused CNN of reporting details from a 35-page intelligence document that the reporters were not able to independently corroborate.
I bet CNN is going to get all huffy about the 1st Amendment but the President-elect doesn't answer their questions if he doesn't want to. Especially if they report something as salacious as these allegations without any kind of independent corroboration. CNN would never have done this to Obama in a million years so I guess I can agree with Trump when he says this treatment is unfair. I hope Trump freezes them out for four years because they will lose it if that happened.
