Trump slams 'false' reporting: 'A stain on America!'

Weigel tweeted a photo Friday of the arena in Pensacola where Trump held a rally that evening.

President Donald Trump on Saturday called for a Washington Post reporter to be fired over a misleading tweet about the size of the crowd at a rally for the president on Friday in Pensacola, Florida. Weigel was responding to Trump's claim that the arena had been "packed to the rafters".

To repeat, for emphasis: Donald Trump, whose twitter feed is made up of the two substances of lies and childish overreactions, wants someone else fired for an inaccurate tweet that was immediately retracted and apologized for. Real photos now shown as I spoke.

"Trump's public response: ".@daveweigel of the Washington Post just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an nearly empty arena last night for my speech in Pensacola when, in fact, he knew the arena was packed (as shown also on T.V.).

The president's tweet comes after various journalists became targets of Trump and his supporters last week over a series of reporting errors. When others pointed out the mistake to Weigel, he quickly deleted the tweet.

Boston Companies Make Survey's Best Places to Work List
The job-hunting website on Wednesday released its list of top large companies to work for, as voted by employees. That means it beat out companies like Google (No. 5), Lululemon (No. 6), and Microsoft (No. 39).

But an apology was apparently not enough, because Trump nearly immediately mischaracterized what Weigel had said and called for him to be fired from the Washington Post.

How did the media react?

However, many popular pundits, journalists, and commentators were disgusted and disturbed by Trump's call for Weigel's firing even after he corrected his mistake and issued an apology.

In fact, the photo was taken before the rally began. The president slammed the post calling it "fake news". The emphasis is that of the president and not of the Round Table.

Earlier on Saturday, the president had boasted on Twitter about the size of the crowd.

Yemen's Ex-President Saleh Reported Killed In Fighting
This week's fighting reportedly left aid workers trapped inside a building and unable to administer support to civilians. Unverified footage circulated by Yemeni social media users on Monday appeared to a show corpse resembling Saleh.

Trump also revived his hostility toward Brian Ross, who was suspended from his position as chief investigative correspondent for ABC News on Sat, Dec. 2 after incorrectly reporting that former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn would testify that Trump had asked him to make contact with members of the Russian government prior to the 2016 presidential election. On Saturday morning, he attacked CNN for making a what called a "vicious and purposeful mistake" when it was forced to correct a story about the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks.

Trump went on to let the public know that instead of having the goal to provide reliable and accurate news to the American public, CNN is focused on tearing down his administration via falsified news.

He continued: "CNN'S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS".

Johndec then surreptitiously tried to imply that Weigel's false account was not far from the truth, implying that Trump lied about his crowds before.

The reporter's latest misadventure drew the full wrath of the president, who has been notably touchy about crowd sizes at his events ever since the inauguration.
