Despite lying their way into massacres of millions of innocent people over the past 40 years. Give. me. a. break. They have abused the trust of their viewers for far too long. Trump is just pointing out that they are liars for hire.
The UN human rights chief said Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s relentless attacks on the media could trigger violence against journalists, suggesting the US leader would be responsible.
Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein voiced particular alarm over Trump’s verbal assaults on CNN, the New York Times and Washington Post.

Legitimate journalists should probably quit any media company that cooperates with intelligence agencies for their own protection, or at least insist that their bosses clean up their act.
