"I have to say, "Fox & Friends" in the morning, they're very honorable people", he said.
"I don't mind bad stories".
"I'm following through on what I pledged", he said. "But I'm not OK when it's fake".
"Our administration is working day and night to keep Americans safe including you reporters", he said.
Trump's criticisms were not without reason.
At Thursday's press conference, he fell back on similar attacks on the media, rattling off attacks on The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal for reporting on intelligence and law-enforcement investigations into his campaign's ties with Russian Federation.
Despite stating that there is no known evidence, The New York Times states half-truths and presents old and debated evidence as fact to make the claim in an nearly 1,300 word article that there was collusion.
The president said that he certainly hadn't and that he was not aware of such contacts during the campaign. "That's why it's a criminal penalty", Trump said.

Merson disputes these tags, though, telling talkSPORT: "I don't think tactically [Wenger] is as great as people say. You all say that, I just listen".
Trump insists that the alternative to getting along with Russian Federation could be "nuclear holocaust". Trump said he wanted to do right thing for the world. "I have nothing to do with Putin". I just wanted to let you know- a mess'.
Trump asked a black reporter to help him set up a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus.
It was later revealed that the "highly classified" elements of the report relied heavily on an unconfirmed 35-page dossier from a former British MI6 agent who now runs a private security business.
"But now there is serious vetting", he said.
He then blasted today's Wall Street Journal report as "almost as disgraceful as the failing New York Times". He repeatedly asserted that the news the media was reporting was "fake".
Despite all the problems he listed, however, Trump made a promise to the American people he will "take care of it".
Ticking all the usual boxes - the media, leaks and Russia - President Trump mounted a vigorous defence of his presidency on Thursday, as he delivered what has been described as a "combative" speech.
Trump asserted that his administration is "running like a fine-tuned machine" and there is "no chaos" inside the White House as being reported by, what he called, the "dishonest" media. The State Department was among the agencies that signed off on the deal when Clinton served as Secretary of State.

He also said that his approval rating is at 55 percent and climbing and shot down a number of polls which show him with a historically low approval rating for a new president. The report stated that the USA intelligence community is holding back information from the White House, fearing it could be compromised.
As for his inner circle, Mr Trump is also expected to soon name a new national security adviser following this week's ouster of Michael Flynn, who the White House said had misled vice president Mike Pence about his contacts with Russian Federation. Flynn was caught lying about discussing potentially dropping Russian sanctions with Russian diplomats before Trump was elected; after the leaks were published, he was forced to resign after less than a month on the job. "He says in his resignation letter that he did not deliberately leave out elements of his conversations with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak when he recounted them to Vice President Mike Pence".
Rebecca Leclair: "In Washington, how are people feeling about the news conference?" He accused reporters of not telling the truth and only serving special interests.
When are government leaks good and when are they bad?
Bloomberg cites Representative Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, saying this appears to be a pattern, and "There does appear to be a well orchestrated effort to attack Flynn and others in the administration".
He also warned in a pair of tweets that "low-life leakers" of classified information would be caught.
He said he had "inherited a mess - at home and abroad", saying Isis had spread like a cancer due to previous policies. "I think he's been treated very, very unfairly by the media-as I call it, the fake media, in many cases". "And I'm gonna try, I will do everything within my power to fix that".
He told the audience: 'We're going to bring jobs back to this country, bigly.
