Why do you think Trump refuses to be interviewed by CNN ? He can't claim 'FAKE NEWS' or 'Spin' as all questions and answers are public record.

Probably the same reason Obama snubbed FOX. But hey, look on the bright side. So far, Trump hasn't had Jim Acosta named as a co-conspirator under the Espionage Act.

Next.

Trump has not avoided unfriendly media. He does do interviews and answer questions. I mean it's kinda petty to insinuate otherwise just because he has given CNN an exusive.

Since the mouthpiece for CNN is Acosta, I really don't see any reason why Trump should give CNN an interview ... (grin)

Because there is no news reporter or anchor at CNN who is (1) less well informed than Trump (2) ask "softball" questions, and (3) will demur from calling "BS" when he makes claims that do not align with the facts and sound/cogent inference borne of rigorous analysis. Trump operates on the "because I said 'it' is so, 'it' is so" paradigm, and CNN's reporters, anchors and analysts don't ascribe to that model.

Because he is not stupid. That CNN exists proves at least some are. Eason Jordan should have been the end of CNN...admittedly fake news then and doubled down today.

Obama froze FOX out many times.
Him and his press secretary.
You probably never notices because they didn't act all butt hurt and make themselves the news.
