Brooke Baldwin on Sarah Sanders Slamming Opinion-Driven News: ‘Isn’t That Basically Fox News?’
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin took a shot at Fox News during a post-White House briefing panel on President Trump’s accusations of fake news.
Jim Acosta had asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders if the President values the First Amendment as much as he values the Second Amendment, in response to tweets like this from Trump:
Why Isn’t the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country to see why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2017
At one point, Huckabee Sanders said that part of the fake news the administration doesn’t like involves opinion being pushed as fact.
In response, Baldwin made this observation:
“She said, ‘We see a problem with any story that’s opinion that’s put out as fact.’ So Brian Stelter, isn’t that basically Fox News? The President’s go-to TV channel?”
Brian Stelter noted how the Fox News interviews Trump has done recently have been with “his friends on the opinion side,” and not the network’s news anchors.
