Before hashtags, Russian hackers or fake news were ever a thing, businessman Donald Trump had already had enough of the inaccurate reporting from mainstream media entities like CNN.
In 1990, the future President joined the network for an interview in which he hammered the interviewer about the news channel’s inaccurate and biased reporting.
Even then, just as 24-hour cable news networks were in their infancy, it was a shock to reporters, whose credibility had never really been question, especially in front of their own audiences.
As you’ll see below, Trump not only accuses CNN of getting away with murder in their reporting, but abruptly walks out on the interview after concluding it was yet another witch hunt.
When people say something false I attack those people… because the news gets away with murder… the news media… they get away with murder.
The media is so protected and it’s ridiculous they’re so protected… they can write virtually anything… The difference is with me at least with me they pay some price… and I think more people should have that attitude and I think you’d find a lot more accurate reporting, including yours.
