Donald Trump has made his first address since the election via a youtube video, skipping the traditional press conference.
His decision to release a youtube video comes as the war between the new, independent media and the controlled mainstream media intensified.
Yesterday, Trump criticized mainstream media executives and anchors in a face to face meeting.
Trump specifically singled out CNN boss Jeff Zucker saying, “I hate your network.”
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“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.
Another source confirmed the version of events, claiming Trump also slammed two other female NBC correspondents.
“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 other 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 [a] network of liars,” the source stated.
