After President Trump Slams CNN, James Comey Posts "Freedom of Press"

Trump angry that people take CNN seriously when Fox News is 'much more important' Fox News much more important than CNN: Trump

President Donald Trump is again firing a new shot in his war with the media. "The outside world does not see the truth from them!" said Trump from his Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Florida.

In a lengthy tweet, Mr Trump on Sunday alleged that CNN represents United States to the world very poorly.

President Donald Trump tweeted his thanks last night to a website that listed all of his accomplishments - "Fired corrupt and incompetent FBI Director James Comey", made the list. "Our job is to report the news".

While Trump didn't tag CNN in the post, though he did tag Fox News (saying they were "MUCH more important"), CNN nevertheless saw the post and drafted a quick response snarkily reminding the President that what he described isn't their job, it's his. CNN's Christiane Amanpour would know - she tweeted a video of herself running away from the sound of bullets while reporting overseas. Their reporting prompted the United Nations to open an investigation into the matter. As Thomas Jefferson said, it "cannot be limited without being lost".

According to the reports, Trump's remarks come at a significant time for the media outlet, whose parent company Time Warner is merging with AT&T in an $85 billion deal. Well with US President's Twitter habits, there is no boring day on the social media. He had blasted CNN on Twitter just moments earlier.
