Limbaugh Praises Trump Calling Out CNN In Poland: American Media Are ‘Pretenders To Journalism’

RUSH: Here is Trump. We have three bites here from his press conference in Poland along with the Polish president. First question, Daily Mail, U.S. political editor David Martosko said, “Since you started the whole wrestling thing with CNN, what are your thoughts about what’s happened since then? CNN went after you. They’ve threatened to expose the identity of a person they said was responsible for it, and I’d like your thoughts.”

THE PRESIDENT: I think what CNN did was unfortunate for them. As you know now, they have some pretty serious problems. They have been fake news for a long time. They’ve been covering me in a very, very dishonest way. CNN has really taken it too seriously and I think they’ve hurt themselves very badly. Very, very badly. And what we want to see in the United States is honest, beautiful, free, but honest press. We want to see fair press. I think it’s a very important thing. We don’t want fake news.

RUSH: Now, stop and think of this. This is a worldwide press conference with the president of the United States standing next to the head honcho of Poland calling out, justifiably, an American news network, which many people have said needs to be done for decades. “We need to fight back. The media’s killing us. The media’s destroying us.” So here’s what it looks like when Trump fights back, and it makes some people nervous. “Gee, I didn’t think he’d do it.” I’m not talking about the tweets. I’m not talking about the gif. I’m talking about just saying things like this at a presser. “He should be above it.”

Folks, CNN has been a bad actor for I don’t know how long. You know, I don’t even quite know how to talk about this, ’cause I don’t ever want to sound like a victim. But they have reported some of the most outrageously bogus things about me over the years.

I’ve been dealing with and taking on the media since this program began. The whole media despises me, and they should. But I’m happy to see Trump doing it. He’s just got them totally off balance. And for so many wonderful reasons that are being exposed. They’re really a bunch of phony pretenders to competence, pretenders to elegance, pretenders to fairness, pretenders to journalism. It’s not even what happens anymore in what is called the American media.
