President Elect Donald Trump held a closed-door meeting with major names from TV networks at Trump Tower today. According to a new report, the meeting was tense.
CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Wolf Blitzer, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and David Muir, NBC’s Chuck Todd, CBS’ Charlie Rose, Fox News’ Bill Shine, and a few others were all at the meeting.
Trump called them all “liars” and trashed them for being unfair to him during election coverage.
The meeting was summed up in The New York Post:
“It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source.
“Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….
Trump reportedly singled out Zucker from CNN and Katy Tur from NBC. He also singled out Martha Raddatz of ABC, who was also at the meeting, scolding her for getting emotional on election night when she realized that Hillary Clinton had lost.
Someone who spoke to the Post 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.’”
Looks like the media is finally being called out for misleading the public and (unsuccessfully) helping Clinton every step of the way.
