Angry citizen criticized CNN on twitter, “CNN is not ‘the press’ – 1st amendment refers to the right to a ‘free press’, not to one immune from criticism for its partisan dishonesty & constantly negative selective reporting by other people using their 1st amendment rights. President/supporters also have 1st amend rights.”
Another CNN critic mentioned, “Maybe #cnn should practice reporting without twisting it to make Trump look bad. Just be civil and honest.”
