CNN Posted a series of blatantly anti-Trump chyron captions during his Monday briefing.
Here are a few screenshots
“Trump Refuses to Acknowledge any mistakes.”
“Trump uses task force briefing to try and rewrite history on coronavirus response”
“Trump attacks media after series of reports he ignored warnings as virus spread”
Angry Trump turns briefing into propaganda session.
Trump melts down in angry response to reports he ignored virus warnings.
“Angry Trump uses propaganda video, produced by government employees at taxpayers’ expense”
“Trump falsely claims media ignored coronavirus in Jan, Feb”
Monday evening, CNN’s Brian Stelter tweeted:
The White House’s anti-media propaganda video was disgraceful. It also showed us where Trump’s head is at. At the briefing he was fixated on the PAST — not the present or the future pathway out of this emergency.

CNN’s John King also accused Trump of playing a “propaganda video.”
The president has every right to defend himself. The president has a few key points he wants to make about his action on the China ban. He is absolutely correct. However, I spent nine and a half years, close to ten years in that building, including in the briefing room as the White House correspondent, many of them working with you in back in the Clinton administration, and then I stayed on through the George W. Bush administration.
That was propaganda. That was propaganda, not just a campaign video. That was propaganda aired in the briefing room. It was selective cherry-picked information.
On February 26, he said this is the flu, like a flu. In that same press conference, he said we are going to get 15 people, within a couple of days, it will be down to zero. I could go on and on with other things the president has said.
He has every right to defend himself, every right to push back and challenge things that are not true, but to pay a propaganda video at taxpayer expense in the White House briefing room is a new — you can insert your favorite word — from this administration.
That is just plain out propaganda.
This is the video Stelter and King were referring to.
