'Fox Stands Firmly with CNN': Trump's Favorite News Network Actually Rebukes His Latest Attack on the Press
The White House retaliated against CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins on Wednesday for asking questions during a brief press event, leading Fox News to condemn the administration's actions.
"As a member of the White House press pool, Fox stands firmly with CNN on this issue of access," said host Bret Baier Wednesday night. "So far, no response from the White House."
The incident happened earlier in the day when Trump met with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. A group of reporters was invited in for photos, and as is typical, Collins called out to the president with a few questions. She inquired about recent news relating to Michael Cohen and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump ignored the questions.
After the event, Collins was told she would be barred from attending Trump's speech that day in the Rose Garden. White House staff said her questions were "inappropriate" and that she was "shouting," though she maintains that her behavior was completely within normal bounds.
