“[The media has] been apologizing left and right,” Trump said during his campaign rally in Florida Friday night.

So began Trump’s first whack at responding to CNN’s major correction to a report on an email pointing Trump and top aides to hacked documents released by WikiLeaks prior to their publication.

“[CNN] should have been apologizing for the last two years,” Trump said amid cheers from the crowd.

Trump didn’t hesitate to throw ABC under the bus as well for “fraudster” Brian Ross’ erroneous report on former national security adviser Michael Flynn, claiming the network should’ve fired the now suspended reporter.

President Trump: "Did you see all the corrections the media has been making? … They never apologize."

Trump wasn’t quite done with his latest tirade against the media as his Saturday morning tweets echoed the same sentiment from the night before.

CNN’s Friday afternoon correction came hours after the Washington Post published a report based on a copy of the email obtained by the newspaper’s reporters.

Trump’s latest hit against CNN comes off the heels of speculation surrounding the Dept. Of Justice’s complaint to block AT&T’s takeover of Time Warner (the news network’s parent company) and the network deciding to ditch this year’s White House Christmas party.
