White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders down CNN Senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Monday to talking about fake news.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shut down CNN Senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Monday, if the liberal reporters tried to hijack a press briefing in talking about fake news.
Acosta said Sanders, the journalists make “honest mistakes” but that doesn’t make you “fake news”, before a question. To cut off Sanders quickly to him.
“I’m not a different question of you.”

“If journalists make mistakes, to be quite honest, you should have up to you. Sometimes, and a lot of the time, you don’t know it,” said Sanders, as Acosta tries to interrupt.
“I’m sorry, I’m not finished yet,” she said. “It is a very big difference between honest mistake and deliberately misleading the American people… you can’t say that it was an honest error when they deliberately lay out of information, you know, wrong.”
Acosta then Sanders asked to cite a particular story that was deliberately false.
“Sure. The ABC report of Brian Ross,” Sanders said, referring to a recent embarrassing correction ABC News issued after Ross botched a bomb, “exclusive” retired general Michael Flynn, led the reporter to be suspended.
CNN need to stop Acosta, when he had the chance, as Sanders does not choose one of his network to use the last blunder, as your example. However, Acosta also tried to continue the conversation with repeated attempts to interrupt, press the conference.
“Jim, I’m going to say, once and for all, that moved I am,” said Sanders. “I’m not a different question of you.”
CNN had to issue its own correction on Friday, after The Washington Post calling for the network-debunked report that Trump’s campaign was a. the early, secret access to the hacked DNC E-Mails of WikiLeaks The network on Friday, inaccurately, that the Congress-investigators received a mysterious 2016 E-Mail that was sent to Trump, and other top aides, including Donald Trump Jr, the information contained on how to get a preview of the hacked information acquired by WikiLeaks. The E-Mail, as CNN reported, offered a “decryption key” to access the files, but the network screwed up the date of the E-Mail-rendering the entire report is irrelevant.
On Monday, CNN a report earlier this year criticised the fact that state attorney General Jeff Sessions for concealment of a meeting he had with Russian officials, when he was his security clearance – a disclosure not required. CNN was widely ridiculed on Monday morning for a segment on Trump’s soda-taking in the midst of the unfolding of breaking news in connection with the terrorist attack in New York City.
President Trump has pointed directly at Acosta and said, “you are fake news,” in past press conferences.
