The Media Is Outraged That Trump Criticized CNN. They Must Have Forgotten When Obama Did The Same To Fox News

The media was furious after Donald Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter at his first press conference as president-elect Wednesday.

He blasted the network as “fake news” after it reported on an unsubstantiated 35-page document that claims Trump is being blackmailed by the Russian government.

“Don’t be rude,” Trump told Jim Acosta when he tried to ask a question. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”

The press was incensed, but why did Barack Obama not generate the same outrage when he repeatedly criticized Fox News and questioned its legitimacy over the last eight years?

In 2010, he said the network promoted a “destructive viewpoint.”

“I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view,” Obama said during an interview with Rolling Stone. “It’s a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it’s been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it’s that Fox is very successful.”

    CNN is bought and paid for by Obama, when he appointed either a spouse or a sibling of its CEO to his cabinet. Yes check it out.

  • dndgaddy says:

    Big deal they are mostly all False and Fake news in the pocket of the dnc!

  • Bob says:

    Let us not forget that Obama blamed the historic upset of Crooked Hillary, where she went quickly from a shoe in to a foot note, on the TV’s in bars, restaurants, and airports being tuned to Fox. Saying that Fox favored Republicans and angled stories to show Trump in the best light, he was WRONG that Hillary would win easily with the backing of a compliant press corps who openly stated their job was to defeat Trump, and that pisses him off the most because it is a total rejecting of his “legacy”. I’m sorry for all the Obamaites who are so teary eyed and disappointed that they are now working on his Sainthood that he lost so soundly, but loose he did.

  • I ask you all to think just what is the stated(unstated more like it) goals of defeating Trump, even before he takes office? Then promising to continue to do what is best for them, for their policies certainly cannot be defended, obstructionism. A Pence presidency? Selecting Hillary? No, this is what General Dwight Eisenhower, then outgoing President Eisenhower warned of and what got President Kennedy assassinated over. We have what is called unelected bureaucrats that thrive during times of chaos, for the furtherance of their ideology and the ultimate goal is total control and a police state. Kennedy refused their “Northwoods” plot to make the American people want a “justified” war with a smaller Communist Cuba by making it “seem” as Cuba had attacked the US, thus allowing the Military Industrial Complex to do what it does best, make war. Kennedy refused to sign it. Eisenhower waited until he was safely out the door before warning us of the huge Military Industrial Complex, our spy network that instead of arresting the Ft. Lauderdale killer just last week, they fully knew he intended to hit New York, but allowed him to kill those people. The more chaos, the more impediments that your daily lives are interrupted, the more the people are willing to accept anything that will bring normalcy back and is the exact word that is used in the propaganda world…normalization, that is after the “demoralization.” Chaos, fear, and the utter compliance and the dependence on the government is what these creatures intend. And in so doing, most would agree to further enslavement. A total Nazi style police state is their goal, with the Hollywood elites and the ruling party at the pinnacle, and the rest of the natives and villagers as just that, bottom feeders here to do only one thing, make resources for those upper echelons to enjoy at the people’s expense. This election was a total repudiation of what Americans see and people being allowed to comply with the laws they like, and not the ones they do not. Trey Gowdy said it best when he said that one day, Democrats will rue the day when there is a Republican in the Presidential Oval Office,and they have blurred the lines of the law to the point that he too will do the same to them. How right Mr Gowdy was, and to point out a moot fact, you can see them running scared now. That power is leaving for them behind, and they do not want to see their influence, as obscene and sickening these last 8 yrs have been, dissolve into nothingness, and they are obsolete, irrelevant and not welcome in the polite society of regular Americans exercising their rights to choose whom they want for president. We are not a pure democracy here, in that we are not Rule by the Mob, or the majority(50+1 can come and take your property) but a nation of laws, Rule of Law (an entire town cannot come in and take your property).

    President elect Trump is showing what a strong leader looks like. He sets the agenda and the rules. His actions sent a message to every news organization. If they publish/broadcast rumors or lies about him they are going to lose their ability to interact with him. His interaction with the CNN reporter probably shook up a lot of newsrooms Wednesday afternoon.

    I predict that many MBA programs will change over the next few years to teach the Trump style of management. It is far better than the limp leadership that is common today.

  • Climax says:

    When the media goes back to reporting the “accurate an verified news” instead of “creating the news”, maybe it will be regarded in a different view. Until then the President, whom ever it may be, should just excluded any reporter from the news briefings at the White House that represents a media source of false and malicious nature. Easy, just ask them to leave and if they don’t have security remove them from the White House grounds. It will only take very few actions like this to stop these unwarranted, false and malicious attacks to change them. To have a seat in the White House News Room is a privilege, not a requirement.

    And now you know why it is no surprise the media is in Obama’s pocket.
    Ya think there might be a little bias in the news ???
    It also explains the cover up of Benghazi………

      Trump is married to a women who was raised in a communist family went to communist run schools and dropped out of college in her first year. If what you imply about all these media people is true then what does Trumps wife say about him?

      1. gvette says:

        Mooochelle O gave up her law license, instead of going to jail for lying under oath. That’s the kinds of people you on the left like!

        1. Climax says:

          They both did, now lets talk about the Clinton’s and what happened to their Law Licenses too.

          1. How is it that the only man ever censured by Congress and impeached for lying, Eric Holder, can still practice law,of course in California, the nuts and dates banana republic, which I do agree has had climate change due to human activity? With wildfires, earthquakes, tremors, drought and allowing the water to flow back out into the sea for a minnow of a fish that has absolutely no economic value, they want to be their own little universe, I say the country is better off without them.The earth is repulsing from the sin of the entire state! There is your human activity concerning the predictable outcome of that activity.

          2. Climax says:

            I love you! A woman with a real since of value and brain!

        2. bobnstuff says:

          The First Lady still has her license, it’s in an inactive status and she can go back to practicing law any time she wants. We talk about fake news, here is a classic case of fake news. There have been no actions against her as a lawyer. It was a made up story.

          1. gvette says:

            Please Bob, stop with you left leaning fact check. They are there to protect the left, period! All the crap you like, comes from DemonRAT stenographers, not real news investigating sources.

          2. bobnstuff says:

            Even Fox News uses them as a source.

          3. CCblogging says:

            You lie and they lost their licenses for lying just like you do.

          4. bobnstuff says:

            No she didn’t lose her license, that was one of those fake news chain letters off the internet. Go fact check it with real sources.

          5. CCblogging says:

            They lost their license and she couldn’t pass the bar in NYC!!

          8. First lady? The birth certificate has been proven to be a fake, for it took four years, but in trying to satisfy the validity of it, they found the real person whose birth certificate was stolen from and taken the information by computer and placed on Obama’s. That is security paper they use and each one is as different as a fingerprint and you cannot have two fingerprints, which seems IS the case in Obama’s birth certificate. So, a snake oil salesman, a more than probable foreigner, and I do not and will not accept any law from whence came by his hand. He was never and should have never been allowed to ascend this far. But what can you do after he has despoiled the country, our military is in shambles, every Leftist town/city is full of murder, rape, pillaging, looting and their politicians are on the hook for bribery, etc. See Cory Booker of New Jersey as a great example. I, however am I am in the free Texas and care not a whit if the US goes belly up, we have the 5th largest economy in the world, have a balanced budget, our own power grid that is not obsolete and real leaders to lead us and we will leave you in the dust as usual and like always. I say we own not a penny of that debt, for we voted against any more “raising the debt ceiling” and YOUR PRESIDENT defied all logic and did it anyway. We do not spend more than we make, we live within our means. For the oil reserves just found in the Panhandle make Spindletop look like a dot in history. Frack, frack and more fracking and we are going to cut off these “regulations” saying how much we can sell. Americans get fully 3/4 of all their natural gas and oil courtesy of the Lone Star state. I say put a, say 45% tariff on all of that oil and gas just for the misery of the last 8 yrs. Every Liberal policy our leaders, and now our beloved Governor, a hero around these parts, Greg Abbott, has said, to Obama each and every time he came after us for our complete open/conceal carry:”Come and Take it,” to Obamacare, “We have great Medicaid, we do not need Obamacare,” to Common Core, he said, “nope, not gonna happen, education is designed to the states,” Muslims who are making Europe into an uninhabitable mess, we yet again said “Not a chance.” To our schools letting the entrance of boys into girls showers, etc. our Attorney General said “not going to happen, ” and now, as a polite society, we have had to made a Privacy Protection Act against these “men who say they are women” and the other way around coming into women’s restrooms! Since when do your rights which begin to interfere with my rights come into play? Who died and made you Lord over my rights? I do not want a man coming into a restroom where I might be or worse, my daughter! This lunatic has even made children question their own gender written on their birth certificates and that is called in Propaganda 101 “demoralizing” a country as a means to shed more rights off of the people who eventually will tire of the BS and agree to the loss of even more of their rights just to get some sanity back. We learned what a girl and a boy and the difference was in kindergarten. So, Texas is hard country and we have had to huddle together a lot of times before. Between Santa Ana and the entire Mexican army and the Blue Norther’s that blow through we have a very diverse population, but you do not see our streets burning and out of control. But we see it in every Liberal city in America and want none of it. But I betcha my cowboy boots–no, I won’t go that far–but I bet that Texas men would rather huddle with a Dallas cowboy cheerleader than a wench in a burqua any day! Live Love from the great REPUBLIC OF TEXAS!

            After living in Mineral Wells for two years in 1966-1968 while in the Army at Fort Wolthers, and in the DFW area from 1999 to 2015 working for American Airlines. I have to agree fully with you. Men and Men and Women are Women, and they only mix in intimate times. Line they say there are Steers and, you know the other group, and Texas does not tolerate that bunch of sick people. Now I live in Orlando Florida and have to put up with their crazy actions and decadence. Lady, I love you for your attitude and spunk and wish more of the women in the USA would grow some courage and speak up as well.

          10. bobnstuff says:

            Trump said Obama was born in America, that’s good enough for me. Crime is down in the country in case you didn’t hear about it and it’s down in most major cities. You say you live in Texas, good for you just don’t be poor or old since Texas doesn’t do a very good job taking care of either group. Also if America every pulled her military bases out of your state you would be in a world of trouble. Texas is one of those states that get more money from the Federal government then they pay in. I’m sure glad you are enjoying that extra money. Your great Schools system is in the bottom half of the ranking nationally. You have the 11th highest crime rate in the country. So Enjoy Texas. Oh and I have my own natural gas so I really don’t need yours Texas may be number one in natural gas but Pennsylvania is number two and I own some of that gas, How much Texas gas and oil do you own. More important then gas or oil We have water.

      2. Bob says:

        Not really a parallel argument….Melania is in bed with Trump too. Who influences who? The press is in bed with the Obama administration and Obama administration is in bed with the press.

        I say that you agree with these far left propagandists spewing their filthy lies. I also say this, just because she came from a “former” Communist nation doesn’t make her a Communist.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          It was a communist country while she was growing up and he family were party members. The school she went to was communist. These are facts. I really don’t know if shes a communist and don’t think Trump cares. I do know that she will take her clothing off for money, also a proven fact. I also know she will sleep with a married man.

          1. CCblogging says:

            You are a lying Soros’ troll. Show the proof and besides a dirtbag like you has no room to throw rocks. Idiot!

          2. bobnstuff says:

            I can show you pictures of her without cloths if you like, she is very pretty. She dated Trump while he was still married to number two. There also are pictures.
            “After moving to New York City in 1996, Melania met her future husband Donald at a Fashion Week party in New York City in September 1998, while he was still married to, but separated from, Marla Maples; Donald attended the event with another date, Celina Midelfart, and Melania initially refused to give Donald her phone number. Melania broke off the relationship shortly after it began, but the couple reconciled after a few months. Their relationship gained attention after a 1999 interview on The Howard Stern Show”

        But yet his wife can speak 4 languages, with an IQ off the chart, but again, your use to looking at a drag queen that looks like a monkey with lipstick smeared on it with an IQ of 68! Trump’s wife likes class!

      5. Look at his first wife. She too is a European, a beauty and defies the logic of the Left. I too have Russian background, so does that make me a Russian operative for voting for Trump? I admit, I did it. I, because of my parents being able to be traced back to Russia as far back as 1415, it was me! It had to be us. We are all Russian operatives, racists, and all other vile names because they cannot defend their policies, so cast forth the forked tongue.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          Ivana would have been a great first lady, This just goes to show Trumps bad judgment. He did it right the first time but then screwed it up.

  • bobnstuff says:

    If you want to understand why the different response to a president criticizing a media outlet just look at the difference in how they did it. Obama did it with class and Trump did it with crass. There are two ways to tell someone to go to hell, one just makes them angry and the other has them asking for directions.

    1. Anouk says:

      Obama class??? He is more like a street vulgar junkie without ANY class whatsoever.
      Trump is a real deal without the hypocrisy the Muslim Hussein shows with his slimy and hypocrite words.
      Obama is certainly the one who is classless here.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        I guess Trump speaking at a fourth grade level works for you. Is the president using language that I would punish my children for using is your idea of class. Trump is a want to be, and as about as vulgar in both word and deed as they come. I suspect you have never been around truly classy people so I guess I should give you a pass on not knowing what it is.

        1. gvette says:

          Bob, Trump owns 500 businesses. I’d say he has done well. Tell me again about Barrys accomplishments.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            How many of those business make money? Do you know why he owns so many, it’s to protect them from each others debts and law suits. Real businesses merge together for cost savings and to share assets. Many of Trumps businesses are so shaky that he has to keep them apart from the others. Also a number of those business are on paper only and don’t do anything.

          2. gvette says:

            Well I guess he’s sharp enough to do that. Show me the picture of the jet you own, and fly around in.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            My daddy didn’t give me $80 million dollars so I was stuck with collecting classic cars. Had Trump just bought stock in a good money market account he would be twice as rich today. You did understand that the only reason to own all those different companies is to protect your self from stupid mistakes. Almost all are based in Delaware for tax reasons.

          4. gvette says:

            Bob Trump got a loan from his father. That he had to pay back. Stop with your DemonRAT talking points. Your assumption on why he owns so many, is just that, an assumption. Trump is a builder.

          5. bobnstuff says:

            I wish you would go read about how Trump made his money. He got a loan of a million dollars cash plus $80 million loan guarantee. When his father died he got $100 million. This was a republican talking point in the primaries.

          6. gvette says:

   make it sound like he got the loan, then his father died the next day. The point is, he built, and made billions. You folks on the left, hate that.
            I think it’s funny, he’s not even in office yet, and has done more for people, then your nigger did in 8 years!

          7. bobnstuff says:

            He started with over 80 million dollars, not the one million he tries to make everyone believe. In today’s dollars it would be like 800 million dollars. If you started out over forty years ago with .8 billion dollars and today had only 4 billion you wouldn’t be thought of as a great businessman The stock market has done better then that. That’s about a 5% return on the dollar. The over $900 million dollars in tax break that Trump got didn’t hurt him any either. That a quarter of his net worth is tax dollars. If you want to be impressed look at Michael Bloomburg. He started around the same time in the same place with far less money and is worth twice what Trump is. Does that make him twice as smart. He also hasn’t been sued thousands of times.

          8. gvette says:

            I’ll start out with, Barry will never have to worry about being sued. He’s never done anything. I had a customer that traded with me in my shop. He’s a builder. Has billions of dollars. The funny thing about contractors is, they sign a contact, then try to cut corners. The Congels got sued a lot. They always won. The Congels are specific in how they want things done. In other words, it all in the contracct that the contractor signed. When they got caught, they cried. I’m sure Trump is no different. Oh, how many buildings do you have your name on? How many do the KKKlintons? I’m still waiting to see the picture of the jet you fly all over on.You assholes always think you’re smarter, but it seems, you aren’t!

          9. bobnstuff says:

            Just what does Obama have to do with how Trump got his money? What does the Clinton’s have to do with how Trump got his money. Trump has refused to pay contractor because they did bad work and then invited them to do more work for him. Trump didn’t only get sued by contractors, he also got sued by vendors and employees. He just doesn’t like to pay bills. The real funny one is he has been sued by his own lawyers. You really need to go read Trumps history as a businessman.

          10. gvette says:

            Contractor do not get invited to do work. They bid on contracts. The other names I mentioned, are all the people you wet yourself over. Trump didn’t need to be president. He is giving up a lot, to try to fix our broken country. That’s why he ran.

          11. bobnstuff says:

            What world do you live in? Contractor get asked to do work all the time. They don’t always even have to bid, they are told what the job will pay and asked if they want it. Trump needs to be President for his Ego, not for the money. As of right now he is giving up nothing, he’s keeping all his businesses.

          12. gvette says:

            He’s turning control of them, over to his sons. Which he shouldn’t have to do. No where in the constitution does it say you can’t own businesses, and be president. Are you familiar with the founding fathers at all?
            You may call a contractor to come over to do work at your house, but when you’re building million dollar buildings, there’s a contract.I thought you were smarter then that, Bob.

          13. bobnstuff says:

            I work with contractors all the time and it’s not uncommon for the smaller ones to get calls to come do a special project. There is no bidding involved, the amount they get is in the budget and it’s a take it or leave it kind of deal. I mostly work with landscapers and they will be given a budget to work with. Lately it’s been the big hospitals doing the hiring. These guys come to bounce ideas off of me and to have me to look over their plans. These are small companies and some I helped get started. These are the kind of people Trump love to rip off. He knows they don’t have the money to fight him. He also knows that if he waits a few months he can come at them with an offer that is much less then the agreed upon price and they pretty much have to take it or go out of business. I learned early that the bigger the company the more likely you will have to fight to get paid. I think Trumps treatment of these smaller companies is what make me dislike him so much.

          14. gvette says:

            I mentioned earlier to you that I did work for the Congels. They, like Trump, are billionaires. I sent the bill, the next day I had the check. I never had a problem.
            Well, the good part of trump, he is going to make the country job friendly once again. Always remember, it’s the DemonRATS that sell our jobs out of the country.
            I’m happy to hear you’re successful.

          15. bobnstuff says:

            It’s big business that’s sending the jobs to other countries. People like Trump who claim there is no one in our country that will do the job when it’s all about short term profits. Don’t build the company raise you stock prices. Trump just badmouthed Bill Ford for sending jobs to Mexico, Mr. Ford is a Republican.
            If Trump really wants to help business grow in this country it’s not regulations that is the problem but money. If you are a small business capital is your number one problem. If you need money to grow your business forget the banks, they only give money to those that don’t need it. The SBA is a joke. We need to help the guy with a good Idea and who is willing to work hard to build businesses.

            I believe in business, small businesses create jobs. I have watched people start businesses in their basement and now they have hundreds of employees. I don’t care which party does it but I want a government to understand the needs of the small business. If the money we give to companies like EXXON was instead given to a small companies instead we would get a much bigger bang for our buck. Even if all the government did was provide health insurance so that money can be invested in the business instead. There are a lot of people who must keep jobs just to be sure they can have insurance.

            Getting rid of regulations won’t create any jobs, that’s a myth. Creating the flow of capital to where it can do the most good is the key to growing our economy.

        2. Climax says:

          If you are, and obviously you are, an Obama supporter, then you also know that Obama cannot speak with out a teleprompter. Now lets look at success, what did Obama accomplish outside the government before he became the POTUS? Now compare that to Trump. I like winners, I like success, I like putting America First and Americans First.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            The teleprompter is to ensure he says that which he intends to and he understands that every word he says has power. Trump spends so much time unsaying things and having people need to explain what he really meant that he should be using a teleprompter and in fact the people around have tried very hard to get him to use one.

        3. Rodney Steward says:

          Obama’s the want to be, he now has to go back to being a Chicago thug with his buddies AL-Sharpton and JJ the clown!! WOW!! What class!

    2. Climax says:

      Do you have any idea what true class is?

      1. Anouk says:

        Thank you Climax! I was just ready to ask bobnstuff the same question.

      2. bobnstuff says:

        Yes I do, Fred Rogers, Bill Gates, Colin Powell, John Glenn. Walter Cronkite, Sarah Mellon Scaife, Even Reagan out classes Trump by a mile. Trumps Idea of class is to gold plate something.
