When you checkout at a grocery store, do you ever notice the wild tabloids with claims of alien mating and other wild made up news? It seems that CNN has joined the ranks of tabloid journalism.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta took heat Thursday from conservatives on Twitter after the combative correspondent accused President Trump of holding a “fake news conference” — and later spewed some “fake news” of his own when he claimed Trump misstated the number of intelligence agencies that concluded Russia meddled in the presidential election.
