President Trump slammed NBC News and The New York Times on Wednesday, even offering a rare-yet-backhanded compliment to CNN in the process.
Trump took questions from reporters for over 30 minutes outside the White House and got frustrated with NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander for asking about 2020 Democratic hopeful Joe Biden.
At White House today, @realDonaldTrump: “You (@PeterAlexander) are so obviously biased, a that’s why the public has no confidence in the media….NBC News has less credibility, in my opinion, with guys like you, than CNN. I think CNN has more credibility than NBC News.” pic.twitter.com/nyLYoqYkSR

“This guy is the most biased reporter,” the president said. “NBC, you know I made a lot of money for NBC with ‘The Apprentice’ and I used to like them but they are the most biased. Peter is such a biased… you should be able to ask a question in a better way. You are so obviously biased.”
Trump said that the public “has no confidence in the media” because of biased reporters.
“NBC News has less credibility, in my opinion… than CNN. I think CNN has more credibility than NBC News,” Trump said.
NBC News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
