‘You Couldn’t Turn Away’: Fox’s Howard Kurtz Says Trump ‘Scored Some Points by Denouncing Fake News’

In response to President Donald Trump’s lengthy and combative press conference today, Fox News’ Howard Kurtz remarked that it was fascinating to watch and the president’s supporters must have been “on their feet cheering” throughout.

“You couldn’t turn away,” Kurtz told host Bret Baier. “That was the harshest and most sustained attack on the media by a president of the United States in history. Not even close.”

He added, “President Trump scored some points by denouncing fake news, as he always does.”

Kurtz also predicted that his detractors will run headlines much like Trump predicted, claiming he “was ranting and raving.”

The MediaBuzz host went on to run down some of the highlights from the presser, specifically Trump’s battles with reporters and media outlets.
