They got it from INFOWARS. I mean that's a fucking cliche. They know no one less scummy they could have approached to DOCTOR THEIR FILM? FOX wouldn't do it for them? Or did INFOWARs just do it and she put it out under the WH name?

These are professionals, they probably can tell 'frame by frame' 'syllable by syllable' if video is doctored. Is the TRUMP WH arrogant or STUUUPID?
Chrisst, Do these people do ANYTHING honest? Anything? They are SCUM top to bottom. And if they weren't scum when they were hired, they become SCUM.


Tagging Sanders, Rangappa asked if the press secretary was “seriously tweeting out an
obviously doctored video – from InfoWars no less – to substantiate a false accusation of assault against a journalist.”

The White House News Photographers Association on Thursday slammed press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for sharing what appears to be a manipulated video of CNN’s Jim Acosta allegedly mistreating a female intern.

“The White House News Photographers Association is appalled to learn that the White House spokesperson may have shared a manipulated video of CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s interaction with a White House intern during a news conference,” Whitney Shefte, the organization’s president, wrote in a statement.

“As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth,” the statement continued. “It’s deceptive, dangerous and unethical.”

“Knowingly sharing manipulated images is equally problematic, particularly when the person sharing them is a representative of our country’s highest office with vast influence over public opinion,” the statement concluded.

That's true. I think has to do with who OWNS it. Was that news footage from a GOVERNMENT or WH source or video shot and owned by one of the networks? Not a clue.

Fact!!!
He has ever right to get his question answered and not be dumped on by the POTUS saying sit down. I would NOT have let go of that mic either. Your BOY is looking bad. And worse everyday and all the spin in the world will not CHANGE THAT!

"I will tell you that CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", President Trump said. "You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN."[20]
