According to CNBC reporter Carl Quintanilla, the shares took a noticeable dip during the president-elect’s first news conference moments after Trump refused to answer questions from CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta.
“Your organization is terrible…” Trump said repeatedly. “I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”
Steve Kopack, a social lead for CNBC’s breaking news desk, also stated that shares “fell to session low.”

While the dip was minuscule financially, Kopack asserted the incident showed the “power of Trump’s comments.”
“Should be noted that the $TWX move was an approximately 1.2% or $1.10/share move total, but shows power of Trump comments,” Kopack added.
During the press conference Trump also pointed to numerous other journalists in the crowd and similarly branded them as “fake news.”
