Any good lawyer knows you’re never supposed to ask a question you don’t know the answer to – but CNN’s Chris Cillizza apparently didn’t get the memo.
As you’re all aware, President Donald Trump is no fan of CNN, having had referred to the news network first as “fake news,” then “very fake news,” along with a whole host of other insults. In response to a tweet from Trump declaring that fake news was at an “all time high,” Cillizza decided to respond in defense of his friends in the media (and his own network, of course).
Name a story that is "fake" or "incorrect."
You can't just make a blanket assertion without ANY specifics. https://t.co/tpJ2VLmf4r

Well Chris, here are just a few….
CNN falsely reported that Mnuchin foreclosed on a widow over 27 cents and still hasn't corrected it. https://t.co/i7CskYs7Kl

And my own personal favorite, in two images.
Unfortunately for Chris, the hardest part of his challenge would’ve been naming just one.
