  • Washington Post reporter apologizes for 'bad tweet' after Trump calls him out

On Saturday evening, Donald Trump attacked The Washington Post's Dave Weigel, demanding a retraction from the outlet and an apology for one of the reporter's personal tweets.

"@Daveweigel of the Washington Post just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an nearly empty arena last night for my speech in Pensacola when, in fact, he knew the arena was packed (as shown also on T.V.)", Trump tweeted. According to United States media reports, these pictures instantly went viral on the web thus attracting the President's attention. Packed house, many people unable to get in.

The president's tweets seeking to undermine the media have been a mainstay of his first year in office.

President Donald Trump on Saturday suggested a Washington Post reporter be fired over a misleading tweet. "FAKE NEWS, he should be fired", Trump tweeted. 'I deleted the photo after @dmartosko told me I'd gotten it wrong. "Was confused by the image of you walking in the bottom right corner", he tweeted.

At Friday's rally, Trump pointed to a CNN correction and other corrections and clarifications by news organizations in the past week on stories that initially had been damaging to the president but didn't live up to the scrutiny. The story mistakenly claimed that Donald Trump Jr. had been tipped off about the release of hacked DNC emails by WikiLeaks before they were made public. They are out of control - correct reporting means nothing to them. Analyses of news footage showed that fewer people attended Trump's inauguration than President Barack Obama's in 2009.


"Fake News CNN made a vicious and purposeful mistake yesterday". As NCRM has noted, journalists make mistakes - and responsible journalists correct those mistakes.

He continued: "CNN'S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS".

CNN told Politico that the reporters, Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb, would not receive discipline for their erroneous report.

Trump also revived his hostility toward Brian Ross, who was suspended from his position as chief investigative correspondent for ABC News on Sat, Dec. 2 after incorrectly reporting that former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn would testify that Trump had asked him to make contact with members of the Russian government prior to the 2016 presidential election. But Flynn received the order during the transition period following the 2016 USA presidential election, not during the course of the campaign.
