Sanders was making a point about reporters making a mistake vs when they report fake news on purpose…There is a big difference.
“There’s a big difference between making honest mistakes and purposely misleading the American people…something that happens regularly.” – Sarah Huckabee Sanders
Fox News Insider reports:
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders battled CNN reporter Jim Acosta, accusing the mainstream media of “purposefully” putting out false information.
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.
“I’m sorry. I’m not finished!” she countered.
“There’s a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people, something that happens regularly,” she shot back.
Acosta asked for an example of a story that was “intentionally false” and meant to mislead Americans.
Sanders called out the false report by ABC News’ Brian Ross on former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, which earned Ross a four-week suspension.
She called it “very telling” that Ross was suspended. Acosta kept pushing Sanders to let him ask his original question about allegations of sexual misconduct against President Trump, but she refused.
