Expert satirist Stephen Colbert decided to lay into CNN on Tuesday evening’s episode of “Late Night.” The host took the divisive news network to task over their recently retracted a Russia-related Trump story:

CNN says that the retraction does not mean the facts of the story were necessarily wrong, but they pulled the story because standard editorial processes were not followed. Yes, it’s a fine story — they just forgot to call it ‘breaking news’ and have a countdown clock.

After poking fun at CNN, Colbert diverted his attention back to his favorite target.

“There is one person who is guilty of fake news out there — it’s Donald Trump,” he said, referring to the recent report that several Trump golf clubs have a fake Time magazine cover of the president framed and mounted on their walls.

Earlier, Colbert mocked the White House’s new restrictions on press briefings:
