Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., backed the media on Monday, saying "most news is not fake," The Hill reported.

His comments came just hours after President Donald Trump blasted the media again on Twitter citing "fake news."

Trump took to Twitter to thank Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. on Monday for defending his response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. At the same time, Trump again criticized the media.

But while speaking at a Louisville Chamber of Commerce event, McConnell said: "My view is that most news is not fake, but I do try to look at a variety of sources. I try not to fall in love with any particular source," he said.
