Donald Trump Challenges CNN International Coverage for Spreading 'Fake News'

On Saturday, Donald Trump took to Twitter for one of his favorite activities: attacking CNN (now in 280 characters!).

CNN hit back at Donald Trump after the president of the United States stated that the news network insufficiently represents the United States.

According to the leader of the executive branch, "the outside world does not see the truth from them!" "Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake". During his recent Asia trip, he tweeted that he was "forced to" watch "fake" CNN, claiming that he has not done so in months.

The takeaway? Twitter thinks Trump's continuous threats toward CNN aren't just a nuisance - they're a blow to principles of free speech and press freedom. While the president regularly dismisses their work as "fake", it's anything but.

CNN global was prompt in replying back. Their reporting prompted the United Nations to open an investigation into the matter.

Comey also may have violated his employment agreement for leaking the memo, but was already out of a job by then.

Comey responded, indirectly, on social media.

Russian president Vladimir Putin recently signed a law that will make foreign media outlets like CNN International register as "foreign agents".

"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that can not be limited without being lost".

His latest tweet comes about a week after the Department of Justice sued to block AT&T's proposed $85-billion purchase of Time Warner Inc., which owns CNN.
