Trump Slams ‘Fake News Network TV’ for Not Covering Dem Primary Revelations: ‘Disgraceful’
President Donald Trump is still tweeting away on his flight to Asia, now taking shots at the media for underreporting the recent revelations about the 2016 Democratic primary.
The rigged Dem Primary, one of the biggest political stories in years, got ZERO coverage on Fake News Network TV last night. Disgraceful!

This is Trump’s latest missive from his ongoing tweetstorm about how Hillary Clinton and the DNC need to be investigated for allegedly tipping the scales against Sen. Bernie Sanders during the race for the White House. Trump has suggested that Sanders supporters should be “apoplectic” with the Democrats since Clinton supposedly stole the presidential candidacy from the Vermont senator by doing this.
As media reporter and former Mediaite columnist Joe Concha wrote for The Hill, ABC’s World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News, and CBS Evening News chose not to cover Donna Brazile’s new book and the passage where she talks about the party’s nomination process. Brazile was received major media attention yesterday for writing that she found “proof” that Clinton’s team took control of the Party’s resources, which “rigged” the proceedings against Sanders.
Instead of this topic, all three network shows focused last night on the latest developments pertaining Robert Mueller’s investigation and indictments against Trump’s former staffers.
For what it’s worth, even though CNN is cable television — not network — they did hold a discussion on the matter last night.
