Trump denies NYT report on his TV habits

President Trump responds to the NYT story on his media consumption:

Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day - Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!" Bad Reporting.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2017

  • A NYT spokeswoman responds: "We stand by our reporting, sourced from interviews with 60 advisers, associates, friends and members of Congress, including many who interact with President Trump every day."
