White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders was the perfect choice to take on the media today following the release of a bombshell video by Project Veritas showing an undercover reporter capturing CNN’s Supervising Producer admitting that most of the “news” they put out about the Trump-Russia collusion is “bullish*t!”
Early this morning, James O’Keefe released the Project Veritas video where reporters went undercover at CNN to investigate the #VeryFakeNews network. O’Keefe said their intent in making the video was to determine the motivation behind CNN’s Trump-Russia collusion obsession. Since the inauguration, CNN has mentioned “Russian story” nearly 16,000 times.
During her press conference today, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders encouraged the room full of “reporters” to watch the Project Veritas video that exposes CNN as fake news for ratings. She even took it a step further and noted that while she couldn’t confirm the accuracy of the tape, that every American should watch the video. Sanders appeared to be disgusted as she remarked that if the tape is accurate, “then it is a disgrace to all of media…to all of journalism.” And furthermore, “If the media can’t be trusted to report the news, then that is a danger to all of America.”
Although panicked fake network hosts like MSNBC’s Joy Reid were praising reporter Brian Karem for attempting to stand up to Huckabee-Sanders, in reality, he was no match for the sharp-witted Huckabee-Sanders who claimed that media has gone into a dark place. One of the Democrat Party’s top cheerleaders’ Joy Reid is no exception. Here’s her tweet:

The video below shows Karem’s attempt to defend his fellow journalist’s use of “unnamed sources” and fake news for ratings. Karem argued that Huckabee-Sanders was “inflaming” the CNN undercover video story, saying: “Everybody in this room is only trying to do their job.” Sarah Huckabee-Sanders blasted Karem as she shot back: “I disagree completely. First of all, I think if anything has been inflamed, it’s the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media. And I think it’s outrageous for you to accuse me of inflaming a story when I was simply trying to respond to his question.”:
Here’s the exchange between Brian Karem and Sarah Huckabee-Sanders:
