President Trump seems not to be relenting on his criticisms of America's famous news channel CNN and this time around the US president has carpeted the media outfit for a mistake in a recent report on Russian Federation meddling, saying the cable TV network was "caught red handed" disseminating "fake news".

In fact, the email to Mr. Trump was sent a day after the documents, stolen from the Democratic National Committee, were made available to the general public. And it didn't take him long, as he used his Pensacola rally Friday night to take shots at the cable news channel as he sarcastically thanked CNN for issuing a correction.

"CNN'S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS".

President Donald Trump slammed CNN on Saturday morning and accused them of making a "vicious and intentional mistake" after it was forced to correct a flawed report on Friday about the Trump campaign getting advance information about WikiLeaks.

"Fake News CNN made a vicious and purposeful mistake yesterday", the president tweeted. But the email was actually dated September 14 of that year, a day after the WikiLeaks docs had already gone public.

Lamar Stevens paced Penn State with 22 point as Tony Carr, Mike Watkins and Shep Garner added 16, 19 and 12 points respectively. The Nittany Lions defeated the Huskies in the 1983 Aloha Bowl, 13-10.

"Their slogan should be CNN, THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS!" the President tweeted Saturday. "They were caught red handed, just like lonely Brian Ross at ABC News (who should be immediately fired for his "mistake")".

The Washington Post and Wall Street Journal threw cold water on the CNN story hours after it was published and noted it got the date wrong in its reporting about when the Trump campaign received the email about Wikileaks.

A CNN spokesperson said that there would be no disciplinary action taken in this case, as CNN does not believe the sources meant to lie to the reporters.

Trump's attacks on CNN - a frequent target of his ire - for the error mark his latest attempt to capitalize on a major news network's reporting mishap. It turned out that Trump only did so after he had been elected. "And then CNN apologized just a little while ago", Trump said. "They apologized. Oh thank you, CNN, thank you so much", the president said.
