During Tuesday’s White House media briefing, which was held on-camera, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ripped into the media — especially CNN — for their dishonesty and perpetuation of “fake news,” according to Fox News.
The question-and-answer portion of the briefing began with a query from Breitbart reporter Charlie Spiering regarding the recently retracted CNN story about alleged ties between Russia and President Donald Trump’s transition team, which provided Sanders the opportunity to upbraid the media as a whole for shoddy journalism overall.
“It’s the constant barrage of fake news directed at the president that has garnered his frustration,” Sanders stated, noting the CNN report Spiering had cited. “There are multiple instances when that outlet you referenced has been repeatedly wrong and had to point that out or be corrected.”
“There’s a video circulating now,” Sanders continued, referring to the recent exposure of a CNN producer by Project Veritas undercover cameras.
