White House press briefing

Hannity's support was echoed on Wednesday by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who refused to condemn the angry crowd's tone or the president's repeated attacks against CNN, which he regularly labels "fake news".

The questions came after the president's daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka Trump, told Axios' Mike Allen that the news media is "not. the enemy of the people" at an event Thursday morning.

In a contentious White House briefing that initially focused on Russian meddling in the midterm elections, Sanders said the media had gone after her personally and said the press repeatedly resorted to "personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger".

Instead, Sanders looked down at her notes and appeared to read a prepared statement about her perceived grievances with the media; how, among other things, she was cruelly made fun of by a comedian at the 2018 White House Correspondents' Association dinner.

"In the age of social media, where divisiveness serves no decent objective, these flippant comments on my part only made things worse and contributed to a cycle of rage that I should not have inflamed further".

Acosta returned to the briefing room and went live on CNN, calling the demonization of the free press "un-American".

The issue of the White House's relationship to members of the media has resurfaced after television reporters were targets of Trump supporters' ire at a rally in Tampa this week. That day might be coming sooner than we think.

I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened.

The press secretary was responding to similar allegations leveled against President Trump. He tweeted afterwards that Sanders' response was "shameful". "I don't know why her father doesn't, and I don't know why this press secretary doesn't".

"[The press] should make some bumper stickers, make some buttons", Acosta said on CNN after the heated exchange. The media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the president and everyone in this administration and certainly we have a role to play but the media has a role to play as well. "But no, I do not feel that the media is the enemy of the people".

The move marks the latest step in the increasingly conflictual relationship between Mr Trump and the cable news network.

"Morning Joe is a dead show with very few people watching and sadly, Fake News CNN is also doing poorly".
