Donald Trump is not going to let the media lie about him just because he's poised to become president of the United States. While most politicians try to gain favor with the press, Trump is attacking them back.
Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post.
“It was like a f−−−ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said, ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing-down,” the source added.
A second source confirmed the fireworks.
“The meeting took place in a big boardroom and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source 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. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.
Hopefully, the media got the message. As president, Trump will not condone a deceitful press. He may not have the power to keep them from lying, but he's not going to let their dishonesty go unanswered.

I remember watching the news and hearing what was going on without the cast throwing in there personal opions. Now the cast wants to throw in there opions and turn everything into a debate and if they have an agenda like they did this election you are treated like c**p by them , not alowed to speak or always cut off and also tricked when asked a question to only reply yes or no to make them look stupid with know explanation of yes or no. Walter Croncite would be rolling over in his grave if he seen this bias money hungry journilism.
They had it coming….if words were stones ..poor Trump would have been stoned to death by these same people .
