Following the Trump-Netanyahu press conference, CNN's Jim Acosta, the reporter Trump famously refused to take a question from during a news conference in New York City, insisted that "the fix is in," Trump only takes questions from friendly news outlets.

"The two questions that were asked, or called upon by the president in this news conference went to Christian Broadcasting Network which is owned by Pat Robertson the televangelist down in Virginia and which is a very conservative news website," Acosta explained. 

“In the last three news conferences, Wolf," Acosta said to CNN's Wolf Blitzer, "All of the questions to the American news media have been handled by conservative press, and I think, Wolf, there’s no other way to describe it but the fix is in."

"This White House, this president, does not want to answer questions, critical questions, about his associates, his aides' contacts with the Russians during the course of that campaign just as his National Security Adviser is being run out of this White House on a rail," added Acosta.
