Epoch Times: President Donald Trump criticized the media on Sept. 20 for its reporting on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, singling out the New York Times after the paper issued a major correction and two reporters later made false claims while promoting a book about Kavanaugh.
Trump was speaking to reporters in the White House when he lambasted them.
“The press has had a very bad week with Justice Kavanaugh and all of those ridiculous charges and all of the mistakes made at the New York Times and other places. You’ve had a very bad week,” he said.
“When you look at what they did to Justice Kavanaugh and so many other things last week, I think this is one of the worst weeks in the history of the fake news media. You have been wrong on so many things,” he added later. “The media of our country is laughed at all over the world now. You’re a joke.” MORE
