TRUMP PRO­POSES ‘WORLD­WIDE NET­WORK’ TO COUNTER CNN OVER­SEAS

Apple Magazine - - Summary -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is rais­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of start­ing “our own World­wide Net­work” to counter news spread in­ter­na­tion­ally by CNN.

Trump said via Twit­ter on Mon­day that CNN “has a pow­er­ful voice por­tray­ing the United States in an un­fair and false way. Some­thing has to be done.”

It wasn’t im­me­di­ately clear what he meant by a world­wide net­work. The U.S. gov­ern­ment al­ready op­er­ates Voice of Amer­ica, which last year reached some 275 mil­lion peo­ple world­wide with news re­ports from the United States avail­able on tele­vi­sion, ra­dio, on­line and so­cial me­dia.

CNN had no im­me­di­ate com­ment about the new crit­i­cism by the pres­i­dent.
