New York Post: Donald Trump’s media summit was a ‘f—ing firing squad’
Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post.
“It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.

A second source confirmed the fireworks.

Update: Report: Trump meeting with media a ‘f---ing firing squad’ (The Hill)
WNU Editor: The Trump team is denying these reports .... Aide: Trump didn't 'explode in anger' during media meeting (The Hill). What's my take .... the media is not trusted or respected by many in today's America .... and after this election cycle .... doubly so. Did President-Elect Trump unload on the media .... I do not know. But I wish I was a fly in that room because my gut tells me that he did .... especially in view on how wrong they were in covering this election cycle, the obvious bias that many of them have against him, and the continuation of the same bias press coverage since the election. I know in my case when it comes to getting news on the incoming Trump administration .... the foreign media has become far more reliable and accurate in their reporting than what the U.S. main stream media is now "dishing out".
