WH Spokeswoman Shuts Down Reporter's Tirade at Press Briefing

"You mentioned the Scaramucci story, where reporters had to resign!" she concluded. What about all the other phony stories they do?

"I think it's the constant barrage of fake news directed at this president [that] has probably garnered his frustration", Sanders said. In response to that report, Sanders went on a long monologue attacking CNN and the news media in general. I hope that outlets that have continued to use either unnamed sources, sometimes stories with no sources at all, we've been going on this Russia/Trump hoax for the better part of a year now with no evidence of anything.

Sanders responded by saying that "if there's anything that has been inflamed, it is the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media".

In all, the diatribe against the media ate up almost five minutes of a 17-minute question-and-answer session by the spokeswoman.

The war of words broke out one day after the White House told the press corps it was not allowed to turn cameras on at the day's briefing - a move that drew fury from most of the reporters, who nonetheless complied with the request.

But on a day that Senate Republicans postponed indefinitely a vote on their health-care bill, Sanders opened the briefing with a dry pronouncement that the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is collapsing. "I think it was pretty black and white".

There were some positive points: the legislation would decrease federal deficits by $321bn over a decade, the budget office said. But the office said that overall, the Senate legislation would increase out of pocket costs for deductibles and copayments.

Brian Karem, who covers the White House for a Maryland newspaper, accused Sanders at the briefing of "inflaming everyone" by lumping all news media together.

The reporter offered Sanders an opportunity to name other stories that the White House would like to see retracted. He devoted his second question to asking whether media organizations should go back and review "anonymously sourced stories on Russian Federation and Trump, and, you know, maybe start a review process and retract where necessary?" Trump tweeted more criticism Tuesday morning of CNN, one of his frequent targets.

"I think it's the constant barrage of fake news that's directed at this administration", Sanders responded, perhaps unaware her boss, President Donald Trump, was responsible for countless birther attacks against his predecessor, has accused without proof or substantiation several members of the Obama administration - including the former president - of felonies, and lies so regularly The New York Times made a decision to compile all of Trump's lies and post them on a page in very, very small type.

Prior to that, he won more than 500 games over a 30-year period as the head coach at Socastee High School in Myrtle Beach, S.C. For months, there had been debates among sports analysts, journalists, and fans as to which player was most deserving.

Sanders disappeared behind the blue doors without answering.
