During his press conference addressing Buzzfeed's "phony" dossier, President-elect Donald Trump refused to take CNN reporter Jim Acosta's question because CNN is "fake news."

From Mediaite:
With Trump looking to call on other reporters, Jim Acosta yelled out, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?”

“Not you,” Trump said. “Your organization is terrible!”
Acosta pressed on, “You are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir?” Trump countered by telling him “don’t be rude.”

“I’m not going to give you a question,” Trump responded. “I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!”

As those on stage by Trump clapped, Acosta retorted, “Now, Mr. President-elect, that’s not appropriate!”
Earlier this week, The Washington Post lamented how their fake news psy-op was "co-opted" by conservative media and begged readers to "retire" using the term.
