CNN has gone to war with President Trump. And likewise, the president has slammed CNN at every chance he gets. Although things have cooled off a bit recently, there is no doubt that the president does not think very highly of the center-left network.
Things have gotten so bad that CNN has been caught forcing bad press on the president. They reluctantly shut down their investigative team looking for dirt on the president in regards to Russia. And it was as bad is it got:
“It was a chilling moment for a unit that boasted Pulitzer Prize winners and superstar internet sleuths, and had been introduced at the beginning of the year as the vanguard of CNN’s original, high-impact reporting. Its mission statement — “Seek truth. Break news. Hold the powerful accountable.” — invoked the sort of exhaustive reporting that has become an increasingly coveted skill for news organizations in the Trump era.
“But within months of its introduction, the unit, CNN Investigates, had been rocked by damaging reporting errors — including another flawed story about Mr. Trump and Russia earlier in June — and its mistakes had disturbed network executives who were already embroiled in a public feud with the White House.”
Wow, CNN had to retract big story on "Russia," with 3 employees forced to resign. What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!

But just because the president doesn’t like CNN doesn’t mean they’re fake news. So what do you think?
