Michael Moore Dubs Trump the 'Godfather' of Fake News, Urges Publishers Not to Back Down

Filmmaker Michael Moore appeared on MSNBC late Thursday to reflect on President-elect Trump's ongoing feud with the press. After calling CNN "fake news" and BuzzFeed "a failing pile of garbage," Moore called Trump's press conference performance "masterful." "As a director, it was a masterful performance, he owned the room he owned the day, this should be very distressing to everyone," Moore said. 
"I did this in my head," Moore continued. "Take those same words you just showed 'you are fake news,' put those words in Nixon's mouth... it would have sounded like the paranoid that Nixon was, put those words in George W. Bush's mouth... it would have sounded defensive and like a little boy; this guy pulls that off." 
Moore also found it amusing that the President-elect replaced Trump Steaks, used previously as a press conference prop, with file folders, which no one was allowed to even open.
"Of course, someone went to Staples an hour earlier and created this prop that looks like like a law student's dorm room," Moore joked.  
"Obviously, we've thought this through and obviously we've addressed a conflict of interest, just look at how many sheets of paper there are," host Chris Hayes added.
Moore, still laughing at the print job's absurdity, got serious again. Read full story here
