The mainstream media used to be relatively friendly to Donald Trump. While they never particularly likes him, they gave him unlimited airtime during the primaries while largely ignoring the rest of the Republican field. It was clear that the ratings-hungry press — and especially CNN — were rooting for a Trump nomination. Some even mockingly referred to CNN as “TNN” (or “Trump News Network”) due to the massive amounts of time they devoted to the billionaire businessman.
Now that he has secured the nomination, however, CNN no longer has a reason to promote the GOP candidate. As such, they've begun to relentlessly attack Trump at every opportunity. The massive change in direction has minted a new nickname for CNN — the Clinton News Network.
Dismantling Trump has become so critical to CNN in recent months that they seem more concerned with landing an attack than caring if is actually true.
