Sarah Sanders battles CNN’s Jim Acosta: You have a 1st Amendment ‘responsibility’ to be ‘positive’ about Trump












During her Thursday White House briefing, Sanders agreed with the National Rifle Association (NRA) that so-called bump stocks that simulate fully-automatic gunfire might need to be regulated. Sanders also pointed out, however, President Donald Trump was a big supporter of the Second Amendment.

“Does he value the First Amendment as much as he values the Second Amendment?” Acosta wondered. “Absolutely,” Sanders replied. “The president is an incredible advocate of the First Amendment, but with the First Amendment, with those freedoms also come responsibilities. And you have a responsibility to tell the truth, to be accurate.”

“I think, right now, when we’ve seen recent information that says that only 5 percent of media coverage has been positive about this president’s administration, while at the same time, you have the stock market and economic confidence at an all-time high, ISIS is on the run, unemployment is at the lowest level it’s been in 17 years, we’ve cut regulations at an historic pace, we’re fixing the V.A. for our vets,” she complained. “You’ve only found 5 percent of your time to focus on some of those issues. And frankly, those are the issues that most Americans care about, not a lot of the things that you cover. Not a lot of the petty palace intrigue you spend your time on.” “I think we need to move towards a more fair, more accurate and, frankly, more responsible news media for the American people,” the press secretary insisted.
