Fox News much more important than CNN: Trump

Trump angry that people take CNN seriously when Fox News is 'much more important'

Although it's unclear exactly what set Trump off, the president has long dismissed the network as "fake news", and has a contentious relationship with Jeffrey Zucker, CNN's president.

Fox News is "much more important" than CNN, President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday. His latest target was CNN International, which he attacked on Saturday evening. To those who follow Comey's semiregular Twitter activity, his tweets are subtle jabs at political leaders, particularly at the one who fired him.

Many, including some CNN reporters and analysts such as Christiane Amanpour and Jake Tapper, also did not sit silent, and criticized Trump for undermining the work of foreign correspondents in war zones around the world.

CNN worldwide was prompt in replying back.

Trump's tweet-thanks to Maga Pill came three days into the president's Thanksgiving holiday weekend in Florida, a getaway stuffed with golf and media rumination.

Just days earlier, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit to block AT&T's $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, alleging the merger would hurt Americans by creating a media monopoly that would "substantially lessen competition, resulting in higher prices and less innovation for millions of Americans". Some see the move as an effort to hand the network over to a conservative buyer, like Rupert Murdoch.
