Donald Trump lashed out at the New York Times for writing a story about his television viewing habits, calling it all "fake news." The Times reported that Trump watches four to eight hours of cable news a day and that he "hate watches" CNN's Don Lemon and cited dozens of Administration officials with direct knowledge of Trump's television viewing habits. The report also claimed Trump has cable news on mute during important meetings with government officials and dignitaries.
