Wounded Trump feels ‘personally betrayed’ by CNN’s negative coverage: report

Published

on

As President Donald Trump continues to lash out against media outlets that criticize him, a new report suggests that his feud with CNN is of a more personal nature.

New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman’s sources say that Trump is particularly hurt by the negative coverage that he receives from CNN because of his past relationship with network president Jeff Zucker.

“Trump complains that Zucker should be programming CNN more favorably toward him because of their long relationship, which can be traced back to 2004 when Zucker put The Apprentice on NBC,” writes Sherman. “Trump has also said to White House staffers that Zucker owes him because Trump helped get him the job at CNN.”

Trump made a point of refusing to answer a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta during his first official press conference as president, and he called out the entire network for allegedly being “fake news.”

“This is entirely personal,” one CNN source tells Sherman. “Trump thinks just because he’s known Jeff that CNN should be covering him like Fox News does.”

The allegation comes from Chris Smith, the Republican representative for New Jersey. A long-standing campaigner on Lyme disease, Smith says the claims are from a new book about the illness and the man who discovered it – a bioweapons scientist called Willy Burgdofer.

What drove the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer into Al Franken denialism?

Published

on

The defenders of Sen. Al Franken are perhaps the single most embarrassing group of allegedly progressive people in the Democratic coalition. Franken, who resigned from the Senate in January 2018, was accused by eight different women of sexual impropriety. Most of these accusations were both serious and credible, in that the women making them were mostly liberals who had no apparent reason to lie about Franken's behavior toward them. Despite this, Franken's defenders are married to the delusional belief that it's all just a frame-up and that if he'd had "due process" in the form of a Senate ethics investigation (run by Republicans, who control that chamber) he would have somehow managed to prove this.
