President Donald J. Trump has denounced CNN and the New York Times for being purveyors of fake news — and after James Comey testimony exposed them as liars, he made them pay a humiliating price for it.
Former FBI Director James Comey confirmed that both outlets released totally false stories about FBI investigations, during his Thursday testimony before the U.S. Senate.
So as a result, at Trump’s next press conference Saturday, he seated reporters from CNN and the Times in the very last row, next to anti-Trump Spanish network Univision — a “unprecedented humiliation,” as the Huff Post shrieked.

Costa cried about it to his liberal buddies:
CNN was placed away from the other TV networks in the equivalent of Siberia (no pun intended) at today's news conference.

CNN's Jim Acosta just said he felt like CNN was put in "timeout" during Rose Garden news conference. Placed in the far back row. #POTUS

As BPR detailed:
The day before, CNN had falsely bleated around the clock that fired FBI director James Comey would testify to Congress that he had never told Trump he was not under FBI investigation.
The next day, when Comey confirmed that he did, in fact, tell Trump that, CNN was forced to admit that it had pushed fake news.
Peter Baker, the White House correspondent for the New York Times, was also seated in the back during the joint press conference.
Comey told the Senate panel that most of the anonymously-sourced reports bloviated nonstop by mainstream media, specifically the New York Times, were “almost entirely wrong.
That’s what you get for pimping #VeryFakeNews!
