After suffering through a series of complete embarrassments this week (and it’s only Tuesday) it should surprise almost no one that CNN, and it’s constant barrage of “fake news”, took center stage at today’s White House press briefing. Unfortunately, after a seemingly delusional reporter made the mistake of asking why the White House wasn’t satisfied with CNN’s recent dismissal of 3 ‘journalists’, as if that was supposed to suddenly absolve them from months of reporting fake news in a thinly-veiled effort to topple a Presidency, Sarah Huckabee Sanders decided to launch an epic rant that will go down as one of the most entertaining press briefings of the year and undoubtedly made CNN’s week even worse.
It all started when Sanders suggested that all the reporters in the room, and the American public at large, should take a look at Project Veritas’ latest undercover bombshell (we covered it here) which featured a CNN producer effectively saying that their constant coverage of Russia was “mostly bullshit” and that CNN’s CEO Jeff Zucker was only pursuing the fake narrative for ratings. If true, Sanders said the video is a “disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism.”
“I think it’s the constant barrage of fake news directed at this President probably that has garnered a lot of his frustration.”
“There’s a video circulating now, whether it’s accurate or not, I don’t know, but I would encourage everybody in this room and frankly everybody across the country to take a look at it.”
“If it is accurate, I think it’s a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism, I think that we have gone to a place where if the media can’t be trusted to report the news, then that’s a dangerous place for America.”
“And I think if that is the place that certain outlets are going, particularly for the purpose of spiking ratings, and if that’s coming directly from the top, I think that’s even more scary and certainly more disgraceful.”
But things got even better when Sanders’ answer seemingly triggered one snowflake ‘journalist’ in the corner who apparently felt like the briefing room had become and “unsafe space” and left him feeling “inflamed.”
Triggered Reporter: “Come on, you’re inflaming everybody, right here, right now with those words. This administration has done that as well. Why in the name of heavens, anyone of us is replaceable and if anyone of us doesn’t get it right the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel or not read us. You have been elected to serve for four years at least, there is no option other than that.”
“We’re here to ask you questions and you’re here to provide the answers. And what you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country who look at it and say ‘see, once again, the President is right and everyone else out here is fake media’.”
“And everybody in this room is only trying to do their job.”
Sure, CNN’s ‘journalists’ are just trying to do their jobs…that is, assuming their ‘jobs’ are to ignore all facts and report whatever salacious headlines pop into their heads so long as it serves to advance their fake “Russian collusion” narrative…yup, they’re doing their jobs.
