Sanders won't dispute claim that media is 'enemy' of people

Sanders won't dispute claim that media is 'enemy' of people

"We think those things go hand-in-hand".

Mrs. Sanders said, noting that she is the first White House press secretary to require Secret Service protection. From there, Sanders launched into a point-by-point rebuttal.

Saying "the president has made his position known", Sanders again avoided providing a "yes" or "no" answer, arguing that the news media has repeatedly resorted "to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger". "She correctly said no", Trump posted on Twitter. "Honestly, Brooke, I'm exhausted of this", he said. That I should be choked'.

"[The press] should make some bumper stickers, make some buttons", Acosta said on CNN after the heated exchange.

" Last week, the White House barred CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins from attending an event in the Rose Garden after she asked the president - in her role as a pool reporter representing many networks, including Fox News - about his former fixer and lawyer Michael Cohen".

Complaining about her own treatment that she sees as a effect of media bias, she said some of the president's adversaries have 'said I should be harassed as a life sentence.

She also recalled comedienne Michelle Wolf's stand-up act at this year's White House Correspondents Association dinner, a vicious take-down that included a jab at her looks and an insulting characterization of her as 'a traitor to my own gender'.

"I know that the invitation has been extended, but I don't believe a final decision has been made", press secretary Sarah Sanders said in response to a question at the daily press briefing.

"The media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the President and everyone in this administration", Sanders said.

Acosta responded to Eric Trump in a followup tweet that said, "No Eric".

"But I will tell you one thing".

"I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened", he tweeted. But, for the sake of this room.

Acosta referenced an earlier question from NPR reporter Sarah McCammon, who asked Sanders if the press was the "enemy of the people" or not.

"I appreciate your passion", Sanders replied. As many times as I have taken calls from folks and not like the questions, I still think it's important.

"I've certainly received my fair share of reporting on me personally that I know not to be fully accurate. So. He's made his comments clear", Sanders said.
