Daily Mail, UK - Donald Trump reportedly used his secret meeting with executives from the major television networks and their top on-air talent on Monday to criticize and attack those in attendance.
The New York Post spoke with a source who said that the meeting felt 'like a f***ing firing squad,' and described the hour-long discussion as a 'total disaster.'
Some of those in attendance also got a 'Trump-style dressing down' according to the source, most notably CNN president Jeff Zucker and ABC's chief global correspondent Martha Raddatz.
A second source, who confirmed that there was an encounter between Trump and Zucker, said: 'Trump kept saying, "We're in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong."
This account differs wildly from the one Kellyanne Conway gave to members of the press after she left the meeting, which she said was 'very cordial, very productive, very congenial.'
Trump kicked things off by going after Zucker, according to the first source who spoke with the Post. That person claims that the President-elect told the CNN president, 'I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed.'
He later turned his attention to two of the women who had been covering the election said the second source.
'Trump didn't say Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room,' claims the source.
Later in the meeting, those in attendance did have the chance to pose some questions to Trump according to that same source, at which point CBS This Morning host Gayle King asked: 'How do you propose we the media work with you?'
Meet the Press' Chuck Todd used his time to ask a few 'pointed questions' said the source, while World News Tonight anchor David Muir asked if he had figured out his family's living situation come January.
'It was a horrible meeting,' added the source.
