CNN’s Acosta: ‘Journalists Make Honest Mistakes’ – They Don’t ‘Intentionally Mislead’

Latest news

    On Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta commented on his exchange with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday by stating, “Journalists make honest mistakes. They don’t go out and intentionally mislead people.”

    Acosta said of the exchange, “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is going off on reporters, who she is accusing of intentionally misleading the American people, when this president, as you know, time and again, Hugh, has repeatedly misled the American people. Journalists make honest mistakes. They don’t go out and intentionally mislead people. That’s not what we do. And yet, here you have the White House press secretary from the podium accusing us of doing just that. And so you know, Hugh, my job as a reporter, my job as the senior White House correspondent for CNN, is to report the news, but also to highlight and put a microscope on episodes of presidential hypocrisy.”
