Default Sarah Sanders shuts down CNN star Jim Acosta's grandstanding

Jim Acosta, the partisan hack reporter for CNN, got shot down in flames by Sarah today regarding fake news by the msm.

Gawd I love this woman.

Sarah Sanders shuts down CNN star Jim Acosta's grandstanding | Fox News

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shut down CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta on Monday when the liberal reporter tried to hijack a press briefing during a conversation about fake news.

Acosta told Sanders that journalists make “honest mistakes” but that doesn’t make them “fake news” before attempting a question. Sanders quickly cut him off.

“When journalists make honest mistakes, they should own up to them. Sometimes, and a lot of times, you don’t,” Sanders said as Acosta tried to interrupt.

“I’m sorry, I’m not finished,” she said. “There is a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people... you cannot say it’s an honest mistake when you’re purposely putting out information you know is false.”

Acosta then asked Sanders to cite a specific story that was intentionally false.

“Sure. The ABC report by Brian Ross,” Sanders said, referring to a recent embarrassing correction ABC News issued after Ross botched a bombshell “exclusive” about retired general Michael Flynn that resulted in the reporter being suspended.


CNN’s Acosta should have stopped when he had the chance, as Sanders didn’t pick one of his network’s recent blunders to use as her example. However, Acosta tried to continue the conversation with repeated attempts to interrupt the press conference.

“Jim, I’m gonna say once and for all that I’m moving on,” Sanders said. “I’m not taking another question from you.”


CNN had to issue its own correction on Friday after The Washington Post debunked the network's report claiming the Trump campaign had early, secret access to hacked DNC emails from WikiLeaks. The network on Friday inaccurately trumpeted that Congressional investigators obtained a mysterious 2016 email that was sent to Trump and other top aides, including Donald Trump Jr., which contained information on how to get a sneak peek at hacked information that WikiLeaks had acquired. The email, as CNN reported, offered a “decryption key” to access the files – but the network botched the date on the email, rendering the entire report irrelevant.

On Monday, CNN backtracked a report from earlier this year that faulted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for failing to reveal meetings he had with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance – a disclosure he wasn’t required to make. CNN also was widely mocked on Monday morning for a segment on Trump’s soda intake amid unfolding breaking news related to the terror attack in New York City.


President Trump has pointed directly at Acosta and said, “You’re fake news,” at past news conferences.

The title alone screams bullish-t lol. The nerve of this administration attempting to call out others on being misleading is laughably pathetic. They have no room to talk. And the thing is when Sanders talks about wanting to seejournalism owning up to mistakes, it does. We've seen them correct errors, we've seen them suspend and fire people for getting it wrong. And the fact is there is no evidence that even the ABC report from Brian Ross was made to be intentionally misleading. It just wasnt accurate and ABC corrected it.

Sanders lies, and sadly her lies are being spun into some bullish-t stand against journalism that the Trump faithful eat up.

Trump is simply discrediting the institutions that can hold him accountable. The news, the FBI etc, this is how dictators take over and it is amazingly obvious. Did Trump retract or correct the fake Muslim vids he posted last week? The biggest inaugural in the history of the world... I am not going through Trumps lies, it is too easy. Yet the disciples refuse to see.

Yup. A couple days ago, Trump claimed black homeownership was at a record high. This is untrue. No correction.

Why won't this admin hold itself to a higher standard than the news media it hates?

President Trump has pointed directly at Acosta and said, “You’re fake news,” at past news conferences.
you know a newspaper gets its administration leaks from the administrative staff right? always has done and likely will in the future.
so a steve bannon monkey wrench was thrown in and the reporter failed to confirm it with the right sources for a story that big.
one of the tightest white houses as far as leaks was the last administration, this one is swimming in them.

Yet one more clue the president doesn't know his job:
