CNN Lectures Trump, Decries 'Far From Normal' Situation With Press


<p>[<em>More in the cross-post on the MRC&#39;s <a href="…; target="_blank">NewsBusters blog</a>.</em>]</p>

<p>CNN&#39;s Jim Acosta and Brian Stelter, with the help of Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota, blasted Donald Trump on 12 January 2017 edition of <em>New Day</em> over the President-Elect&#39;s treatment of the media at his Wednesday press conference. Acosta, who got in a face-off with Trump at the event, expressed his &quot;hope...that Donald Trump can get past this...&#39;Clinton News Network, CNN sucks&#39; mentality that we saw out on the campaign trail. The campaign is over. It&#39;s time to be president.&quot;</p>

<p>Stelter bewailed how &quot;the environment right now is so far from normal,&quot; and asserted that &quot;we&#39;re so from the norms of respect when it comes to the President or the President-Elect...saying the right things about respecting the First Amendment.&quot; He also played up that his &quot;inbox is stuffed with people thanking you, Jim, for standing there yesterday; and thanking this network for its reporting about Trump and Russia; and thanking the press...yes, there&#39;s a portion of the country that distrusts the media. Let&#39;s not lose sight of the majority of the public that, I think, really wants and needs this help right now.&quot;</p>
