When it comes to dealing hard shots back at the mainstream media when they deserve them, nobody really does it better than Sarah Sanders.
When you have to perform half of your job like you are dealing with a bunch of unruly children who just don’t know when to quit during the White House Press Breifings has gotten more than an eyeful of hte media during her time at her job.
During an interview with Sean Hannity this week, her disdain for their general conduct was on full display.
In a Tuesday night appearance on “Hannity,” Sanders addressed a range of media issues, starting with last week’s BuzzFeed “bombshell” about President Donald Trump allegedly instructing his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. (A story that was debunked by no less a Trump foe than special counsel Robert Mueller)
But when she turned to the media malfeasance that marked the coverage of Friday’s confrontation between students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky and a Native American activist, Sanders really hit full stride.
And honest watchers of American news outlets – and the herd mentality that has dominated news coverage during the Trump years — could only nod in agreement.
“We have seen time and time again where they run out here with these outrageous ridiculous stories,” Sanders said.
“One person reports it to begin with and they all jump on it. We saw it again with the Covington students. I’ve never seen people so happy to destroy a kid’s life.”
(Note: Ignore the caption. The post was published by a liberal Twitter user apparently oblivious to the point Sanders was making. But the video is handy.)

Just wait until she meets Kirstjen Nielsen!

By now, the basic facts of the Covington case are pretty well known.
