News is fake until it’s good and then it’s real and we will talk about it.
You may know that the current White House administration is no fan of CNN. President Donald Trump has called their journalism “fake news” more than once. Press Secretary Sean Spicer has, among other things, railed against CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta. CNN (as well as other outlets) was also kept out of a press briefing held in his office.
But then CNN said Trump’s joint address to Congress on Wednesday got good reviews from viewers, and now CNN is chill.
People noticed the difference in tone.
Fake news schmake news.
