CNN Fires Back At Trump: It’s Your Job To Represent The US To The World

5

CNN fired back at President Trump after he tweeted Saturday attacking the network for representing the U.S. “very poorly” to the world.

“It’s not CNN’s job to represent the U.S to the world,” the network’s public relations team tweeted. “That’s yours. Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst.”

Trump tweeted earlier Saturday that Fox News is “much more important” than CNN.

  1. “Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst”

    The President’s point, CNN, is that you are doing a horrible job of reporting the news and thereby reflecting poorly on the US to the rest of the world.

    #FactsFirst? Nore like #NarrativeFirstFactsLastIfAtAll

  2. That’s actually wrong.
    Trump has to govern & safeguard America’s interests in the world.
    He is not the Queen of England who cuts ribbons.
    The president is also not in charge of giving statements 24/7.
    CNN blurts out what they perceive as news 24/7.

  3. Achai v”reiay: First of all, there’s a subtle but important distinction to be made here. This was not CNN “firing back”. It was CNN International. Now, I completely disagree with the notion that they are completely opinion. I’ll come back to that. But here what we’re talking about are the journalists who go on site to battlefields while shrapnel falls all around them and worse and they risk lives to bring us what’s happening. There is NO bias there. Just classic journalism as it has been practiced for decades. And are you aware, dear friends, that on the SAME day Trump tweeted this, just hours before Putin declared all journalists foreign agents? That’s unheard of on its own and that’s who Trump is siding with. Are WE comfortable with THAT? I should hope not.
    Now, back to opinion. It CAN be difficult to tell the difference on ANY network today who is giving news and who is giving opinion. But the conservatives would have you believe that it’s ALL opinion. And that is just not true. I believe news orgs need to do better which show is doing what. But hey, if you’ve got a whole roundtable discussing the news of the day, that’s obviously opinion and protected by our glorious 1st amendment (the one before the amendment any conservative feels can’t be touched? So at least be consistent, no?) And you all KNOW that CNN always has a conservative in the mix. Trump knows that and has been pushing his surrogates onto CNN because he knows they give him a platform. He sends them. Then criticizes them mercilessly as PRESIDENT which has always been beyond the bounds of normalcy in our democracy fooling everyone in the process. Please achai v’reiay, please don’t be fooled.
