SEAN HANNITY (HOST): The abusively biased mainstream media, they continue to prove they're fundamentally incapable of covering president-elect Donald Trump fairly. Now CNN, the Clinton news network, they continually go after president-elect Trump. Just take a look at this report from Jeff Zeleny. Take a look.
HANNITY: Is that fair and balanced? Now, president-elect Trump, he responded by retweeting criticisms of Zeleny's report and then tweeted himself, quote, "CNN is so embarrassed by their total 100 percent support of Hillary Clinton and yet her loss and a landslide, they don't know what to do." And then later he added, quote, "I thought that at CNN would get better after they failed so badly in their support of Hillary Clinton, however since the election, they are worse!"
Now, it's important to remember that Jeff Zeleny, well he's the same so-called journalist, remember he fawned over president Obama back in 2009? Remember this question back when he was working at the The New York Times? Take a look.
HANNITY: Enchanted, really? Now he had the chance to ask the president a real question and that's the one he picked? Now Zeleny, he's not alone over there at CNN. There's a lot of Trump bashing going on 24/7. Let's just take a quick look.
HANNITY: Wow. CNN looking pretty foolish. Now I've been saying since 2008 journalism is dead and those are only a few of the countless examples that prove it. But the liberal mainstream media, they're not interested in the truth or the facts, they're all about pushing their radical left wing agenda. What are they trying to do? Damage president-elect Donald Trump.
HANNITY: I think it's time to reevaluate the press and maybe change the traditional relationship with the press and the White House. For example, would president Obama allow 50 Sean Hannitys in the press pool, asking him and his press secretary questions every single day? No, of course not. So, my message tonight to the press is simple. You guys are done. You've been exposed as fake, as having an agenda, as colluding. You're a fake news organization.
