Fox News’ John Roberts Rips Trump To Shreds For ‘Unfair’ Attacks On CNN And NBC – Watch:
Donald Trump has been known for attacking media outlets that he doesn’t agree with. Most often he attacks CNN or NBC. On Friday, after Trump attacked CNN and called them “fake news,” Fox News reporter John Roberts belatedly called out the president for it.
While in the United Kingdon, Trump refused to take a question from CNN during a news conference with Prime Minister Theresa May because the network was full of “fake news.”
Trump turned down a question from CNN and NBC before taking a question from a “real network” as he said.
Fox News White House reporter John Roberts appeared on the air on Friday following the news conference to stick up for the journalists who were attacked by Trump.
“The president called out one of my colleagues, Kristen Welker of NBC News, as dishonest, he said NBC News was dishonest,” he said. “He also called out CNN as not a real network, fake news. Let me just add that I know Kristen Welker, she’s as honest as the day is long, to call her dishonest is unfair. I used to work at CNN, they have fine journalists there who risk their lives to cover the news around the world. And to say they’re not a real network, or fake news, is also unfair.”
