As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Huckabee Sanders Unloads On Media, Points to Clinton-Russia Collusion

She does it with passion but not the grating hostility that Sean Spicer sometimes brought to this. Very effective.

  1. Its easy to bash media and it usually is crowd-pleaser. But I’m glad we have media that holds the powerful accountable. We went from “no meeting with any Russians”, to
    we discussed only adoptions”, to being forced to reveal emails that clearly shows Don Jr & Jared took the meeting to get dirt on HRC. Maybe there is nothing to it, but the public deserves to know.
    If Trump hates “failing NYTimes” so much, why does he call on Maggie Haberman/Peter Baker to give so many interviews to them.

    • “But I’m glad we have media that holds the powerful accountable.”

      Where was this media (especially among the White House press corps) from January 2009 – January 2017??

      • I suppose looking for a certain birth certificate in Kenya :D
        They didn’t call him “No drama Obama” for no reason.
        Look at the chaos in Trump’s first 6 months: the amateurish implementation of travel bans, issuing policy via tweets, the constant revolving door of people in & out of white house. Approval rating of 38% – lowest of any president in past 70 years.

        • Hillary Clinton has a 98% chance of winning they said. Look how that turned out. Opinion polls are skewed and aren’t worth the paper they are written on.

    • Well, sure, the corporate media rats should hold all office holders accountable–in a truthful, balanced and intelligent approach to their news reporting. But we know they don’t do that, don’t we? Liberal Democrat presidents always get softer, more “delicate” treatment from media people, than do Republicans and conservatives. That issue has been researched many, many times over the years.

      For example, we look at this latest research of how the media behaved during Trump’s first 100 days in office, conducted by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy. Oh, my, my. How embarrassing for the corporate media when we see how they treat Trump. Turns out, media coverage of Trump in his first 100 days was 4 to 1 negative. Worse than Billy Clinton at the height his actual buffoonish Presidency (when it was 3to2 negative).

      Soooo, how about the media make its own self accountable to the truth, then it will have credibility when it says it wants to make politicians accountable for their behavior? Good first start for them.

      From the conclusion of the Harvard University study:
      “Trump’s coverage during his first 100 days was negative even by the standards of today’s hyper-critical press. Studies of earlier presidents found nothing comparable to the level of unfavorable coverage afforded Trump.”

      Here’s the study. It’s quite interesting, actually.
