White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is the best ever in this position. She really knows how to control the reporters that’s associated with the fake news media. For instance, CNN. Today, during her daily press briefing, Sanders ripped CNN’s reporter Jim Acosta… once again.
When asked about the series of journalistic errors and if they are different from organized disinformation, Sanders said:
The president is calling out a very direct and false accusation lodged against him. There was nothing more than an individual trying to put their bias into their reporting, and something that frankly has gotten a little bit out of control. We have seen it time and time again over the last couple of weeks. A number of outlets have had to retract and change and rewrite and make editor’s note to a number of different stories. Some of them with major impacts including moving markets. This is a big problem. We feel it should be taken seriously.
After the answer, CNN’s Jim Acosta piped up, complaining that “journalists make honest mistakes and this does not make them fake news.”
As he began a question, Acosta told Sanders at Monday’s press briefing that journalists make “honest mistakes” and that doesn’t mean it’s “fake news.”
Sanders started to answer but Acosta and another reported interjected. The media is so shameless…But she doesn’t back down.
“I’m sorry. I’m not finished!” she countered.
“There’s a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposely misleading the American people, something that happens regularly,” she shot back.
Sanders continued: “You cannot say that it is an honest mistake when you are purposely putting out information that you know to be false or when you’re taking information that has not been validated, hasn’t been offered with any credibility and continually denied by a number of people including people with direct knowledge of an instance. I am speaking about the number of reports over the last couple weeks. I am stating that there should be a certain level of responsibility in that process.”
When asked to name a specific instance of misleading reporting, Sanders said: “The ABC report by Brian Ross I think those misleading, and that is very telling that individual had to be suspended because of that reporting. I think that shows the network took it seriously and recognized that it was a problem.”
If they were honest mistakes, Jim Acosta and CNN would go out of their way to correct them with the same glee they first reported the incorrect information. Instead, they try to bury it as if it does not matter.
This is why I am so proud of Sarah! She holds her ground and she is not letting things get out of control. She is a blessing for sure!
