Trump: Fake news media ‘has never been so wrong or so dirty’

President Donald Trump, whose complaints about what he considers to be unfair media coverage have been a near constant since he entered the political arena, said Tuesday that the press had descended to a new low.

“The Fake News Media has never been so wrong or so dirty,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Purposely incorrect stories and phony sources to meet their agenda of hate. Sad!”

The president did not specify which particular story had triggered his online remark, but fallout from the Congressional testimony of former FBI Director James Comey has continued to swirl this week, as have broader stories about the ongoing investigations into the possibility of collusion between Trump associates and the Russian government in the latter’s efforts to interfere in last year’s presidential election.

Trump has repeatedly referred to those investigations, which include multiple Congressional probes as well as one led by special prosecutor Robert Mueller, as a “witch hunt.”
