And if you are keeping track, this is the first piece of media criticism Trump has tweeted out since the inauguration. He did, however tweet about Fox and the ratings in the past few days:
A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!

Wow, television ratings just out: 31 million people watched the Inauguration, 11 million more than the very good ratings from 4 years ago!

You may also recall that Trump called CNN fake news in a contentious back-and-forth with Jim Acosta a few weeks ago.
We should also note that later this week Trump is granting the first cable news interview of his presidency to Sean Hannity (after doing an interview with ABC’s David Muir.)
UPDATE 10:20 AM ET 1/25/2017: CNN’s PR Twitter account responded last night with their numbers.
