Executives from the major television networks and their top on-air talent had a secret meeting with President-elect Donald Trump on Monday...and Trump apparently didn't hold back.

Trump reportedly used the meeting to criticize and attack those in attendance.  

The New York Post is reporting that the meeting was like a "firing squad" and described it as a "total disaster."

Trump apparently went after CNN President Jeff Zucker and ABC's chief global correspondent Martha Raddatz. 

A second source, who confirmed that there was an encounter between Trump and Zucker, said: "Trump kept saying, 'We're in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong."

The meeting started when Trump went after Zucker.  The source telling the NY Post the President-elect told the CNN president, "I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed."

Trump then referred to "a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room," claims the source.
