Trump surprised many by saying THIS

In a press conference last week, President-elect Donald Trump refused to take a question from a CNN correspondent, proceeding to call the network "fake news."

The testy exchange came on the heels of CNN reporting that intelligence officials had briefed Trump on an unverified dossier alleging that the Russian government was in possession of compromising information about him.

But the sourcing on the 35-page document is unclear and probably unverifiable. CNN reported that it is based chiefly on memos gathered by a former British intelligence operative that were meant as opposition research into Trump.

In typical Trump fashion, he took Twitter shortly thereafter and blasted the report, tweeting, "FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!"

While the jury is still out on the report, one thing is for certain: Cable news has become increasingly biased over time.

Whether you're watching CNN, Fox News, or MSNBC, every cable news network slants left or right, no matter how hard they may try to mask this. Whatever the channel you tune into, it's very difficult to get objective reporting these days.

Given that the left-wing media is united in its distaste for Trump, I can only imagine how many more confrontations between Trump and fired-up reporters await us in the next four years.
