White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was in no mood for Jim Acosta’s anti-Trump rhetoric at today’s press briefing. Much of the liberal media, and especially CNN has turned these daily briefings into a sideshow against President Trump and his administration.

You’ll remember that Jim Acosta just accused voters of being Too Stupid To Grasp Trump’s “Act”. Today he was whining about press freedom in the age of Trump.
Are trying to say this administration is a champion of the free press?
I certainly see that, I stated a moment ago we support a free press but we also support a fair press. And I think that those things should go hand-in-hand. And there’s a certain responsibility by the press to report accurate information. I think a number of people, I’m not finished, I think a number of people in this room do that every single day. They do their very best to provide fair and accurate information. I certainly support that and that’s one of the reasons why I’m standing here taking your questions. And a lot of times taking your questions in a tone that’s completely unnecessary, unneeded and frankly doesn’t further the conversation or help the American people get any more information in a better way than is your job or my job. And that’s what I trying to do.
The president’s tone towards the press obviously is not helpful.
