The backstory is that a hack outfit called "buzzfeed" published a 35 page report that was a fiction created by some place called 4chan and it talks about that Trump paid hookers to urinate on a bed that was slept on by Obama. Well it was total fabrication to use a polite word and buzzfeed ran it and CNN linked the story. Needless this came out right before Trump's first press conference after he won the election. He was rightfully pissed and made a point to ignore the CNN reporter.
The problem is the media is seeing themselves as the voice of the resistance now rather than actual journalist. They totally went into the tank for Hillary, from feeding their questions to her campaign in advance to help her cause to totally tilting the coverage between Trump and Hillary. I remember when Trump talked bout "grabbing some P***Y", there was like 28 minutes of coverage of that and like 3 minutes of Hillary and her classified emails. This is a big part that cost the media their credibility and the average American really could see their bias for it was always talked about in the conservative side and it was in the past dismissed as "paranoia" but this last election cycle the bias was so blatant that the average American saw it.
