Trump Touts OANN

President Trump may have found a new favorite news outlet: One America News Network, the Herring Networks' conservative news channel. 

That came in a POTUS tweet Wednesday (Aug. 7) critical of Fox's Shepard Smith.  


It was actually the second presidential tweet of the day referencing the news net. It came after the President had earlier in the day tweeted a story from OANN that the Dayton, Ohio, shooter had supported Democratic candidates and ANTIFA. "I hope other news outlets will report this as opposed to Fake News. Thank you!," the President tweeted. 

OANN's web site was leading with the story of the President's earlier tweeted support Wednesday afternoon.
