Trump: 'Fake news networks' afraid of competition from Sinclair

Source: The Hill | April 3, 2018 | John Bowden

President Trump on Tuesday took swipes at CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS, labeling them “fake news” and suggesting that they pushed back at a recent editorial from Sinclair Broadcasting Group because they are “jealous” of the network.

“The Fake News Networks, those that knowingly have a sick and biased AGENDA, are worried about the competition and quality of Sinclair Broadcast. The “Fakers” at CNN, NBC, ABC & CBS have done so much dishonest reporting that they should only be allowed to get awards for fiction!” the president tweeted.

The tweet is Trump’s second defending the right-leaning Sinclair since it directed many of its local affiliates to air promos bashing “fake news.” The move drew widespread criticism from journalists and other media critics.
