Donald Trump Goes Ballistic On CNN Reporter Jim Acosta, Calls CNN 'Fake News' [VIDEO]

Amy Feinstein

In his first press conference since being elected president, Donald Trump was unable to keep his composure, attacking CNN and Buzzfeed as "fake news." Jim Acosta, of CNN, in particular, was a target, as Trump told him he didn't get a question, saying that he is not representing a valid news agency. Trump's anger was as a result of CNN and other sources reporting that Russia has dirt of a sexual nature on the President-elect.

Donald Trump has claimed to have no bias, but he has sought out cabinet members from news outlets like Fox News and Breitbart, which tends to skew toward the right, like Stephen Bannon, says the Inquisitr. Bannon, formerly of Breitbart, has gone after his critics personally, making misogynistic comments and referring to women as girls. Though Donald Trump has accused CNN and Buzzfeed as "fake news," Breitbart has been accused of the same.

It was obvious that the story about Russians blackmailing Donald Trump about a video that allegedly exists of Trump and prostitutes involved in a sex act in a Moscow hotel had hit a nerve, as he opened his press conference to deny the veracity of the dossier.

"That fake news was written about primarily by one group and one television station."
"Buzzfeed is a failing pile of garbage and they're going to suffer the consequences."
"As far as CNN going out of their way to build it up, it's a disgrace what took place. It's a disgrace, and I think they ought to apologize to start."
"Since you're attacking us, can you give us a question? Since you are attacking our news organization - can you give us a chance?"

"Not you, you don't get a question. Your organization is terrible. Quiet. Don't be rude. Don't be rude. No, I'm not going to give you a question. I'm not going to give you a question, you are fake news."
"After I asked and... demanded that we have a question, Sean Spicer, the incoming press secretary, did say to me that if I were to do that again I was going to be thrown out of this press conference."
"I felt it was only fair that if our news organization is going to be attacked that we get a chance to ask a follow up question about what Donald Trump was talking about."
