MEDIA MALPRACTICE: Trump RIPS ‘Fake News’ over Carolina Special Election Coverage

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.11.19

President Trump called-out CNN and MSNBC Tuesday night; blasting their special election coverage as “fake News” following the Republican Party’s “big victory.”

@CNN & @MSNBC were all set to have a BIG victory, until Dan Bishop won North Carolina 09. Now you will hear them barely talk about, or cover, the race. Fake News never wins!” posted Trump on Twitter.

President Trump described Tuesday night’s special election in North Carolina as a “big night” for the Republican Party after two GOP candidates defeated their Democratic challengers in key House races across the state.

“In a major victory for both President Trump and national Republicans, North Carolina GOP state Sen. Dan Bishop was projected to win a fiercely contested special U.S. House election for the 9th District that was widely seen as a bellwether for the president’s chances in the 2020 election,” reports Fox News.

“And another Republican House candidate, Greg Murphy, decisively won a separate special election in North Carolina’s more solidly GOP-leaning 3rd District earlier Tuesday evening — frustrating Democrats who spent millions trying to make a splash in the state,” adds Fox.

“BIG NIGHT FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!” posted the President on Twitter.

“Dan Bishop was down 17 points 3 weeks ago,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He then asked me for help, we changed his strategy together, and he ran a great race. Big Rally last night. Now it looks like he is going to win. @CNN &@MSNBC are moving their big studio equipment and talent out. Stay tuned!”
