CNN Responds To Trump's "Fake News" Attack

Zero Hedge Wednesday, 11 January 2017
CNN Responds To Trump's Fake News AttackJust minutes after Trump slammed CNN's reporter Jim Acosta, calling CNN "fake news", just after slamming Buzzfeed as a "failing pile of garbage", CNN issued a statement in response to Trump's attack, which *effectively boils down to "we are not Buzzfeed*" yet even though CNN said it did not publish the memo "because we have not corroborated the report's allegations" it still used it to create a front-page, uncorroborated "report."

Full CNN statement"

CNN's decision to publish carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government is vastly different than Buzzfeed's decision to publish unsubstantiated memos. The Trump team knows this. They are using Buzzfeed's decision to deflect from CNN's reporting, which has been matched by the other major news organizations. We are fully confident in our reporting. It represents the core of what the First Amendment protects, informing the people of the inner workings of their government; in this case, briefing materials prepared for President Obama and President-elect Trump last week. We made it clear that we were not publishing any of the details of the 35-page document because we have not corroborated the report's allegations. Given that members of the Trump transition team have so vocally criticized our reporting, we encourage them to identify, specifically, what they believe to be inaccurate.
