"The press has become so dishonest that if we don't talk about, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people" he said.

"It's absolutely insane", Smith continued. Host Don Lemon often hosts panel discussions with guests such as Trump supporter and political pundit Kayleigh McEnany, GOP communications strategist Paris Dennard and Democratic strategist Symone Sanders, who once said on the show that Trump did not "care about black people". "Alex?' I checked it, they said, 'No sir.' I said, 'Do me a favor, go back and check the family tree'". This is why, Smith explained, reporters keep asking questions about it.

Trump early Wednesday slammed the "fake news media" and leaks from the intelligence community after reports emerged that senior aides with his presidential campaign were regularly in contact with Russian intelligence officials. The public doesn't believe you people anymore. If your people were on the phone what were they saying? We have a right to know. "The panel is nearly always exclusive anti-Trump ... and the hatred and venom coming from his mouth; the hatred coming from other people on your network", he said, remarking that the show didn't get very good ratings.

After President Donald Trump spent much of his Thursday press conference lecturing and demeaning reporters, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith defended the role of the media, reminding Trump that "you owe this to the American people" to answer reporters' questions.

"In the last three news conferences, all of the questions to the America news media have been handled by conservative press", Acosta said.

Acosta asked Trump whether calling outlets "fake news" could have a damaging effect by "undermining" Americans' faith in the First Amendment and their confidence in the media.

And the White House previously raised eyebrows after the president only took questions during his press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe from outlets owned by Rupert Murdoch, who has longstanding personal and financial ties to Trump.

Fox News anchor Shep Smith appears to have taken it upon himself to speak for the entire Fourth Estate that the media is exhausted of the president's antics and exhausted of being ignored and dismissed when doing its job.

Acosta asked Trump at the press briefing Thursday about WikiLeaks and a statement he had made relating to fake news.

Trump: "I'm changing it from fake news, though - [to] very fake news". I'm just telling you.
