USA: WH Press Secretary Sanders slams 'fake news' outlets in chaotic press conference

SOT, Journalist (English): «I'm wondering if you could help explain the discrepancy between the President's reaction to incidents like this, which he calls 'fake news' and talks quite a bit about, and his silence on actual disinformation campaigns like Russia ran during the 2016 election to deliberately spread false information. So both his silence on that, and does he recognise the difference... Еще between these two?» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «Look, the President is simply calling out a very direct and false accusation lodged against him. There was nothing more than an individual trying to put their bias into their reporting, and something that, frankly, has gotten a little bit out of control. We've seen it time and time again over the last couple of weeks. A number of outlets have had to retract and change, and rewrite, and make editor's notes to a number of different stories — some of them with major impacts, including moving markets. This is a big problem and we think it's something that should be taken seriously.» SOT, Journalist (English): «Does he see a difference between reporters' mistakes and a disinformation campaign by a foreign government? Does he see a distinction there?» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «I haven't spoken with him about that, but certainly we would take any misinformation like that very seriously. But it's not something we're comparing the two on. Jim.» SOT, Journalist (English): «And I would just say, Sarah, that journalists make honest mistakes and that doesn't make them fake news.» SOT, Journalist (English): «But the question that I...» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «But when journalists make honest mistakes, they should own up to them.» SOT, Journalist (English): «We do.» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «Sometimes — and a lot of times you don't. But there's a difference — there's a very big difference.» SOT, Journalist (English): «The President hasn’t — This wasn’t going to be my question.» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «I'm sorry, I'm not finished.» SOT, Journalist (English): «Okay.» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «There's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people — something that happens regularly. You can't say...» SOT, Journalist (English): «You mean like tweeting stuff on the Middle East...» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «I'm not done. You cannot say..» SOT, Journalist (English): «He retweeted something that was completely fake, Sarah. Can he admit it?» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «You cannot say that it's an honest mistake when you're purposefully putting out information that you know to be false, or when you're taking information that hasn't been validated, that hasn't been offered any credibility, and that has been continually denied by a number of people, including people with direct knowledge of an instance. This is something that...» SOT, Journalist (English): «Are you speaking about the President?» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «I'm speaking about the number of reports that have taken place over the last couple of weeks. I'm simply stating that there should be a certain level of responsibility in that process.» SOT, Journalist (English): «This was not...» SOT, Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «Brian, I called on Jim.» SOT, Journalist (English): «I know, I know.»
