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

Earlier in the day, Trump blasted CNN and its global arm in a tweet, accusing the network of spreading "fake" news and representing the U.S.

"It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S.to the world". In the video, they seemingly allude to the President by suggesting that some people might shout or write in all caps that an apple is a banana, attempting to subvert the truth. That's yours. Our job is to report the news.

The president on Saturday fired off a tweet that praised Fox News as superior to CNN and accused it of misrepresenting America to the rest of the world.

Donald Trump can't stop getting dunked on by news organizations. It took no time for CNN to fire back at Trump, and the internet is loving the network's response.

Conte says Chelsea ready for Liverpool after handing Qarabag a thrashing
Antonio Conte takes his Chelsea troops to Liverpool on Saturday on the back of two 4-0 wins and a victory over Man United. We didn't want to leave it until the last game, for what will be a very hard game.

This job can be risky. By undermining CNN journalists overseas, the president is directly attacking their "freedom and even safety".

Trump's tweet-thanks to Maga Pill came three days into the president's Thanksgiving holiday weekend in Florida, a getaway stuffed with golf and media rumination.

"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that can not be limited without being lost". Given the context, Trump's attack on CNN seems particularly timely.

And just as Time magazine did a day before ("The President is incorrect", went part of the official response; "Not a speck of truth here", added Time Inc.'s chief content officer Alan Murray), CNN fought back.
