After President Trump Slams CNN, James Comey Posts "Freedom of Press"

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.
