CNN finally got the scoop it was looking for: President Trump is unfair to the media.

Trump sat down recently for an interview -- and a four-course dinner -- with three reporters from Time magazine. They dined in the White House Blue Room, and the reporters took note of everything they were served -- and everything they were not.

"With the salad course, Trump is served what appeared to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests," the reporters wrote.

But that was just an appetizer for the main story, a scoop so big journalism may be forever changed, so big that members of the Pulitzer Prize committee gasped in unison.

"At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else." 

In the Time magazine story, that was just one little detail. But for CNN, the network decided to do a special, stand-alone piece on "Ice Cream-Gate." Yes, this is what CNN now focuses on -- when it's not fabricating news out of whole cloth.

Of course, some took to Twitter to mock the network.

 

 Oh, it's been a Rocky Road for CNN. 

And no doubt the network will soon call in Ben and Jerry as expert witnesses.
