“CNN stopped doing news a long time ago,” Mr. King told Fox News contributor and former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez on RT America Wednesday night. “They do Trump. Fox is Trump TV and MSNBC is anti-Trump all the time.
“There [were] vicious winds and storms in the Northeast the other day, not covered on any of the three cable networks. Not covered,” he said. “So when CNN started covering Trump — they were the first — they covered every speech he made and then they made Trump the story. So, Trump is the story in America.
“I guess it’s to their regret,” he added.
The network, which is routinely criticized by the president, became the story once again earlier Wednesday following a fiery press conference at the East Room in the White House. At one point during the lengthy exchange, Mr. Trump berated CNN chief correspondent Jim Acosta as a “rude, terrible person” as Mr. Acosta continued to pepper the president with questions and then blocked a female aide from taking the microphone.
The White House later revoked Mr. Acosta’s credentials, saying his actions against the woman were unacceptable.
