Trump meets with media heavyweights and is critical of their performance

NY Post:
President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post.

“It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source.

“Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.

A second source confirmed the encounter.

“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks…,” the source said.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong. He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was network of liars.

“Trump didn’t say Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.
...
That sounds like the conversation many conservatives have had with their TV screen in the past.  At least they know what the new President thinks of their work.  I doubt it will change their presentation of the news as they see it.  But it would have been surprising if Trump had warm regards for them.

  1. It's good to hear that Trump is getting straight down to business. However he still needs to be confirmed as the next President by the Electoral College Electors, on December 19.

    A petition on change.org is asking the Electoral College Electors to break faith with the voters, and elect Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump on December 19. The petition currently has more than 4 million signatures.

    If you are concerned about that, you can sign an opposing petition, that asks the Electors to keep faith with the voters:
