All Stephen Miller did per that clip was talk over Jim Acosta.

Not sure about the "hysterics" of a WH official being a d-ck to the press.

WATCH: Sarah Sanders Refuses to Say Press Isn’t ‘Enemy of the People’ in Jawdropping Clash With Jim Acosta

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, asked point-blank by CNN’s Jim Acosta to do so, did not say that the press is not the “enemy of the people,” as President Donald Trump has claimed.

In a jawdropping exchange which got the CNN reporter so frustrated he eventually walked out, Acosta challenged Sanders to stand against the president’s tweets.

“You read off a laundry list of your concerns about the press and then things that you feel were misreported but you did not say that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta said. “I think it would be a good thing if you were to state right here at this briefing that the press, the people who are gathered in this room right now, doing their jobs every day, asking questions of officials like the ones you brought forward earlier are not the enemy of the people. I think we deserve that.”

But Sanders did not do so.

“It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the president for his rhetoric when they frequently lowered the level of conversation in this country,” she said.

“The media has attacked me repeatedly… When I was hosted by the correspondence association you brought up a comedian to attack me. As far as I know I’m the first press secretary in the history of the United States that’s required Secret Service protection,” she continued. “The media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the president and everyone in this administration and certainly we have a role to play but the media has to role to play for the discourse in this country as well.”

“You did not say in the course of those remarks that you just made that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta replied. “Are we to take it from what you just said, we all get put through the wringer, we all get put through the meat grinder in this town and you’re not an exception and I’m sorry that happened to you. I wish that did not happen.”

“For the sake of this room, for the people in this room, this democracy, this country, all the people around the world are watching what you are saying and the White House for the United States of America, the president of the United States should not refer to us as enemy of the people? His own daughter acknowledges that and all I’m asking is you acknowledge that right here and right now.”

“I appreciate your passion. I share it. I’ve addressed this question. I’ve addressed my personal feelings. I’m here to speak on behalf of the president. He’s made his statements clear.”.

haha you think she knows this is how it was pre WWII some places on the globe?
or does she just think about her paycheck?
what an anti patriot is Sarah Sanders.

Tucker isn't a journalist, he's a pundit.

Acosta puts himself out there as a journalist and he is NOT

Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy.
Jimmy is afraid hostility will end up with someone getting hurt.

Yeah, Jimmy, where were you on these examples of hostility.

When I get irritated at these idiots like Acosta, I just get on their twitter page and give them examples of their blatant hypocrisy.

Who called Acosta a journalist? That would be one of the biggest lies by the MSM.

(Continued next post!)

5 — Let’s Impeach Trump Already! After President Trump fired FBI director James Comey, the media appeared certain he’d just committed his first impeachable offense. Almost without fail, Democratic guests appearing on TV in May were expected to announce when they would initiate impeachment proceedings against the president.
the news reported on what the -resident did and said on twitter and in person


4 — Vegas Scapegoating. When an atrocity of inexplicable scale struck Las Vegas, Americans demanded answers. When those were slow in coming, the media turned their sights on Republicans, blaming gun rights for the tragedy. (Note: They did the same thing after the mass shooting in Texas.)

just as many gun advocates come out at such times; and they have radio and fox affiliates spreading their own opinion.

3 — Abandoning Any Sense of Perspective. After Donald Trump Jr. acknowledged accepting a meeting a sketchy Russian lawyer who said she had dirt on Hillary Clinton, reporters and others in the media jumped the rhetorical shark, calling it a case of “treason.” Yet months later it was reported the Clinton campaign solicited anti-Trump gossip from Kremlin agents (via their intermediary, Fusion GPS), an arguably far worse ethical lapse, and these same talking heads were curiously quiet. https://grabien.com/file.php?id=277165
The meeting was disclosed to U.S. government officials when Kushner filed a revised version of his security clearance form. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/08/u...-manafort.html

2 — Emoting as Reporting. Just weeks into the Trump Administration, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski was struggling. The emotional toll was already too much; after Trump had tweeted that the Trump Tower had been wiretapped, she could no longer take it, telling viewers it was OK to be scared. “We’re all really nervous, too,” she emoted.



1 — Reporters Treat Obama to One Final Slobberfest. In President Obama’s final appearance before the White House press corps, reporters used the opportunity to … shower him with praise, adulation, and hagiography. These sycophantic reporters were seemingly competing to see who could offer Obama the most effusive praise. That honor may have gone to The Blade’s Chris Johnson, who itemized to the president what he felt were his greatest accomplishments -- before inviting him to bash Trump. Or the LA Times’ Christi Parsons, who begged the president to call her (while pointing at her phone), and telling him it’s been “an honor” covering his administration. Her actual question? How he was going to explain the election of Trump to his children.


Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) was the first president to deliberately cultivate journalists, says Mark Feldstein, journalism professor at the University of Maryland.

"The newsmen would gather around him and he would tell them stuff, some off the record, some on the record," Feldstein says.

"He made great copy — he was young, charismatic and he had young children — and all those things were new and exciting and happening at a time when newspapers were really taking off as a profit making mass media."
President Franklin Roosevelt (1933-1945), a distant cousin of Theodore, was the next US leader to enchant reporters.

"He had big problems with newspaper publishers, who were conservative Republicans opposed to his liberal democratic reforms," Feldstein says.

"But the reporters themselves adored Roosevelt and so did the photographers, who covered up Roosevelt's paralysis from polio and did not show pictures of FDR in his wheelchair."

"Nixon was actually the first to set up a White House communications office that would stage events especially for television, with hand-picked audiences of people who would be favourable to what he was saying," says Marshall.

He also hired Roger Ailes — who later became the founder of Rupert Murdoch's Fox News — to coach him on how to appear on television.

But although he had enjoyed favourable press early in his career, Nixon increasingly felt that the media was against him.

Listen to the full program

Rear Vision investigates the long and symbiotic relationship between the president and the press.
"He was a hypersensitive, paranoid, brooding figure who felt that he had been cheated out of the election when he lost to John Kennedy eight years earlier," Feldstein says.

"When he finally did get the White House he was determined to exact revenge on his enemies, the top of which was the press."

"He put reporters individually on an enemies list, had their tax returns audited...
