CNN has responded to a president’s criticism of a “totally fake news” headline for its report on the president’s inauguration coverage.
President Donald Trump blasted CNN on Tuesday for reporting the White House’s coverage of his inauguration as “fake news.”
The president tweeted: “Fake News CNN is trying to control the narrative, they’re doing what they’re told.
They’re a total, total disgrace!”
The network also has faced criticism for its reporting of Trump’s inauguration as a “Trump phenomenon” after it ran a story on Jan. 20 claiming the president had taken the oath of office on a “fake” flag.
The network, which had been reporting the event on its website, said it was following an “official White House press briefing” after Trump told reporters that he was not a fan of the flag.
