According to a Survey Monkey poll published by Axios, 89 percent of Republicans polled view President Donald Trump as more trustworthy than CNN, but 91 percent of Democrats think otherwise. Among Independents, CNN was found to be 15 percentage points more trustworthy than Trump. Meanwhile, among all political affiliations, those polled view the network as more trustworthy than the president by a 7-point margin of 50-43 percent.

“The fight ... between the White House and major media outlets has made the question of truthfulness just as partisan-tinged as health care or other policies,” Survey Monkey Senior Vice President Jon Cohen said.

In fact, when asked whether Trump was more trustworthy than the Washington Post or the New York Times, American adults polled said they trust the newspapers more than the president by a 9-point margin. ABC, CBS and NBC were deemed more trustworthy than Trump among all adults by an 11-point margin. Republicans polled, however, had a similarly disproportionate trust in the president.

Of the 4,965 adults polled, 33 percent of Republicans said they exclusively get their news from Fox News. Sixty-four percent of adults polled don't approve of the president’s Twitter behavior, with 47 percent describing his tweets as “undignified,” 34 percent describing them as “mean,” 26 percent saying they’re “entertaining” and just 7 percent calling them “presidential.”

“The biggest danger for Republicans is that they grow content with firing up the base: Fully three-quarters of pure independents (those that don’t lean one way or the other) disapprove of Trump’s tweeting, and their top three descriptors for it are ‘undignified,’ ‘mean’ and ‘dishonest,'” Cohen said. “A red flag for Democrats continues to be a perception that Trump is isolating himself from the GOP base with his tweets. Not only do most Republicans approve of his use of Twitter, but asked to describe those tweets, the No. 1 mention among the GOP is ‘truthful,’ with ‘entertaining’ in second place.”

'Cash me ousside' girl pleads guilty to juvenile charges

9:30 a.m. Update: Danielle Bregoli pleaded guilty to charges of grand theft, grand theft auto, possession of marijuana and filing a false report Wednesday morning in Delray Beach, Florida, court.

She will likely be sentenced for the crimes at a hearing July 22.

In three separate occasions last year, Bregoli is accused of stealing her mother’s purse, stealing her mother’s car and calling the police to falsely report her mother was on heroin, according to the State Attorney’s Office.

On May 26, 2016, Bregoli called the police to report a domestic battery involving her mother, and accused her of using drugs after spreading powdered sugar on a bathroom counter and describing it as heroin to police, according to the State Attorney’s Office.

This year, Bregoli was found in a car with marijuana, the State Attorney’s Office reports.

Two additional charges against Bregoli were dismissed Wednesday.

Bregoli, her mother Barbara Ann Bregoli and attorney Scott Richardson declined to comment following the hearing.

Robert Shalhoub, a West Palm Beach-based attorney hired by Bregoli’s father Ira Peskowitz, asked Judge Lou Delgado to impose a “no-internet” condition on Bregoli, pending her next court hearing.

“I’m reluctant to do that,” Delgado said before denying the request.

The decision was disappointing to Peskowitz, he said outside the courtroom.

“She posts 24-7,” Peskowitz said following the hearing. “It’s controlled by an alleged management team that promotes absurd behavior for a 14-year-old child.”

Bregoli, thrust into fame after a short appearance on Dr. Phil last year, is “being exploited for her horrific, disgusting behavior” at a young age, said Peskowitz, who is in the middle of a contentious custody battle over Bergoli.

A custody hearing will be scheduled within the next two to three weeks, Shalhoub said.

Original story: Danielle Bregoli, the Boynton Beach, Florida, teenager who became an internet celebrity for the phrase “Cash me ousside," will try to keep herself out of juvenile jail as she heads to court Wednesday for a trial on five charges.

Bregoli, 14, pleaded not guilty last month to four charges of theft and a charge of filing a false police report.

They mostly include acts allegedly committed against her mother, Barbara Ann Bregoli, before the two appeared on the daytime talk show “Dr. Phil” last year.

Danielle challenged audience members to a fight with the phrase “Cash me ousside, how bow dat?” Video clips of the threat soon made her the subject of internet memes and built her an Instagram following that as of Wednesday neared 10 million.

She’s also encountered more controversy, getting kicked off of a Spirit Airlines flight with her mother after an alleged confrontation with another woman and becoming the subject of a recent lawsuit by a woman who said someone in Danielle’s entourage broke her nose in an attack outside a Lake Worth restaurant in February.

Trump sounds off after 3 CNN employees resign over retracted Russia story

President Donald Trump took to Twitter early Tuesday to sound off after three employees on CNN’s new investigative unit resigned Monday over a retracted online story regarding the Senate’s Russia investigation.

"Wow, CNN had to retract big story on 'Russia,' with 3 employees forced to resign," he wrote. "What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!"

He added later: “Fake News CNN is looking at big management changes now that they got caught falsely pushing their phony Russian stories. Ratings way down!”

He continued: “So they caught Fake News CNN cold, but what about NBC, CBS & ABC? What about the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost? They are all Fake News!”

Thomas Frank, a veteran reporter who wrote the story; his editor, Eric Lichtblau, who recently came from the New York Times; and Lex Haris, the man who oversaw the CNN Investigates unit and has worked at CNN since 2001, chose to depart Monday. Frank and Lichtblau worked out of the CNN D.C. bureau; Haris was based in New York.

A spokesman for CNN said: “In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication.”

The story, which linked Anthony Scaramucci, a hedge-fund manager close to Trump, to a Russian investment fund allegedly being investigated by a Senate intelligence committee, did not go through the proper fact-checking process, CNN said. The retracted story cited a single anonymous source.

“The story wasn’t solid enough to publish as-is,” one of the people briefed on the investigation told CNN media writer Brian Stelter.

As The Washington Post noted, this mistake provided right-wing media fodder that feeds into the perception that CNN is improperly going after Trump. Breitbart dubbed the news “Very Fake News” in a headline.

In the past couple of years, CNN has been aggressively beefing up its investigative forces.

“CNN needs to be an organization that breaks news, not just an organization that covers breaking news or talks about breaking news on television,” Andrew Morse, the executive vice president of editorial for CNN/U.S. and general manager of CNN digital worldwide, told NPR in January. “There’s no better way to do that than to invest in investigative reporting.”
