After a contentious exchange between CNN political reporter Jim Acosta and Donald Trump in Wednesdays’ press conference—in which the president-elect refused to answer Acosta’s question and suggested the network spread “fake news”—CNN released a statement defending their reporting on the story in question: the existence of a memo containing salacious allegations against Donald Trump and suggesting that they might impact his relationship with Russia.

In the past few days media organization’s handling of the documents have stirred debate. The CNN article referenced the existence of the memo, but did not provide details that they could not confirm. Buzzfeed then published the memo in its entirety, prompting critics to argue that they were irresponsibly spreading unverifiable information. The president-elect called Buzzfeed a “failing pile of garbage.”

On Wednesday, CNN distanced itself from Buzzfeed with the following statement (reported by Erik Wemple):

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's tenure has not resulted in voters becoming more conservative, and instead, he is driving them into the arms of more liberal and progressive candidates at the local level who are then using their newfound power to change Democratic policies at the national level.

Trump's negative influence is turning into a positive for those candidates -- particularly in the big cities.

"From New York City to Los Angeles, many of the nation’s biggest cities have turned even harder to the left under President Donald Trump, putting pressure on local officials to embrace the leading progressive presidential candidates — or withhold their endorsements entirely for fear of antagonizing newly energized activists," the report states.
