Donald Trump continues to amaze and delight post election in the same way as he did before the election. Here is a singlet that make me smile.
The Media Summit
No, it wasn't an episode from The Apprentice, but I think that some of the great and near great in the news business ended up feeling like they'd been taken to the woodshed. That doesn't happen very often but there is a real fear on the part of the mainstream media that 'liars' will lose their press credentials.
Personal Message to CNN: If you are no longer in White House press briefings, LSP, Fredd, Adrienne, Old NFO and the Grunt of Monte Cristo will use their press passes to get in and they'll tell you what's going on.
(NY Post) “It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.
A second source confirmed the fireworks.
“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.
