WaPo columnist: Sanders
humiliates the media daily

The Hill [DC], by Rebecca Savransky

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 11/23/2017 4:34:59 AM

A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I´m thankful I wasn´t in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share." "For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for their supper, surrendering their adversarial posture

Sarah Sanders doesn´t humiliate the media. They do it to themselves. There are few, if any, "professional journalists" in that room. If they seem like "churlish children" it is because that´s the way they behave, and they should have no problem "taking dictation" from the White House since that is all they did for the eight years of Obama. Ms. Sanders doesn´t create their flaws, she merely illuminates them.

They deserve every bit of it.
When a reporter prefaces a question by asking, "Does the president believe Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens?" Sarah rightfully smacks down the idiot.
When the Urban Radio lady terrorist drips vituperation from her ugly mouth, before a word spills out, Sarah is ready to smack her down.
I like Sarah. I can think of no one better to replace her.
Bleep the press.

This will probably be a minority opinion here, but I thought it was odd for Sarah to require them to tell what they are thankful for. I feel the same way at meetings where the person in charge begins with some sort of gimmick. This sounds more like what a 2nd grade teacher would do to start the school day and it is neither necessary or appropriate in this setting.

It would have been a bit more appropriate if she had said "Feel free to share what you are thankful for." But not to insist on it. I can´t stand Kathleen Parker´s faux conservative stances in her work, but I think she makes a legitimate point. I get the impression that Huckabee Sanders is trying to get these media people to be more positive, and to push back against their knee-jerk negativity. But it does seem a bit manipulative. I would prefer a Tony Snow approach - more direct (i.e. surely Helen Thomas, you don´t see a moral equivalence between Israel and Hezbollah).

Other than that, Happy Thanksgiving to all!

"we are the swamp he seeks to drain. Out with the media, out with free speech, out with facts!"

The media is a significant part of the swamp because it protects the swampy Socialist bureaucracy as its PR machine.

The media thinks ITS speech is the only thing that matters. They shape a story, hating Trump, castigating Republicans, protecting dems, or hiding information altogether like yawning at Trump´s wildly successful Asian trip. The reality is, the protection of free speech was and IS primarily for individuals; the press was the tool of distribution. In today´s age, one person can reach the whole population if the People choose to pay attention. The need for a "free press" is minimal if individuals can speak openly using modern communication. Anyone in the country has access to what I have just written. Instantly. For free. Unfiltered.

The media thinks THEIR facts are the only ones that matter. How many retractions are placed in newspapers or announced on the nightly "news"? How many times have you read a story of which you have personal knowledge and KNOW they got it wrong. If asked, the paper will say that was their understanding at the time.

And it is the media that has obliterated the line between fact and opinion. Their opinions and their attitudes and beliefs completely and unapologetically color the news. Facts are still out there, just not the ones that the media wants you to have and probably more accurate to boot.

"surrendering their adversarial posture like a dog commanded to Drop The Bone"

Maybe the media feels like this because THAT is how they behaved for BO. They sat with their tongues drooling and tails wagging at BO´s every utterance like the well-trained pets they were.

What I want to know is who are the reporters (?) that took money from Fusion GPS and were they at the daily press briefings and what questions did they ask? Our freedom of the press has been perverted by the progressives, communists, socialists, Democrat, leftist propagandists in the msm masquerading as reporters and journalists. What is so special about Sarah is she´s not trying to please these fools in that press room but is dispensing the truth which makes them feel gobsmacked. Thank you Sarah!

To me, Sarah is the most professional journalist in the room during press briefings. She is a master at polite responses to many stupid and inappropriate questions - and so often with a smile on her face. Don´t we all remember the press secretaries of the former administration - those smirks and snide responses just about drove me up the wall!

Listening to adults whine is so tedious. The so called "free press" is not free, the collective press is beholden to the Left Liberals who provide them with a paycheck, or is it money under the table from the Russians or Fusion ?

They are "the swamp", the dregs, the blind, the biased, the hateful. I despise the Media for their weakness in being entrapped by their Loony Left Masters.

They are so weak and brain dead that they are incapable of asking any basic who, what, where, when question. Their sole tool of reporting is "got cha´". It´s all about the grandstanding and not about information for the American People. Mostly, they are worthless, and so worthy of disdain.

The media (most of it) are arrogant, unethical and abuse their protection under the 1st Amendment. As a previous poster said, they mix their opinion with the "information" and pass it off as unbiased "news" -- which it is not. The media has become nothing more than propagandists who lack the ethics and integrity to recognize themselves as such.

The first thing that happens when a new teacher walks into a classroom with high school, grade school, kindergarten, or romper room is the kiddies will experiment to see what they can and cannot get away with. Sarah put her foot down and the White House press alligators swimming in the elite media swamp had a cow. They resemble cats chasing a laser dot. Although Sarah does a great job, I really enjoyed the few times PT did it himself. Hope in late December Sarah will ask them what they are Merry or Happy about. Asking them if they are gay would confuse them. Kathleen Parker is still getting her checks from Client No. 9 and doesn´t need her press gig.

If someone had asked me back in the day, if, in 2017, we’d be having a discussion about whether a fundamentalist baker should be forced by the law to create a wedding cake for a gay couple, I’d have been gobsmacked, as the Brits say. Smacked in the gob because only a decade ago such a question would have seemed so remotely hypothetical as to be absurd. And yet, here we are. A Christian baker has taken a stand on the grounds of religious conscience and artistic freedom not to provide a cake specifically designed for a legal, constitutional same-sex

If Tuesday’s oral argument is any indication, the year-long anticipation for the Masterpiece Cakeshop Supreme Court showdown will result in a narrow opinion that provides little clarity in the continuing conflict between culture and religious liberty. By now the basics are well-known: When a homosexual couple asked Jack Phillips, the owner of the Colorado-based Masterpiece Cakeshop, to design a wedding cake for them, Phillips informed the pair that he could not, in conscience, create a cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage. The men filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division, claiming Masterpiece Cakeshop “discriminated against them in a place

Al Franken’s resignation speech on Thursday seemed less heartfelt than grudging. He cast it not as an act of atonement — he continues to deny the charges largely and acknowledged through his stifled rage that his previous quasi-apologies had hastened his demise — but a reluctant act of gallantry. He was submitting docilely to the “broader conversation” on sexual harassment, he said, while signaling that his replacement, to whom he referred as “her,” would be a female pol embodying that conversation. The speech followed the usual pattern of lying pols: I didn’t do it, I’m only quitting because I am a

It´s been ten months since Washington learned that former British spy Christopher Steele, author of the so-called "Trump dossier," took the Hillary Clinton-funded opposition research document to the FBI, which considered sponsoring the anti-Trump work at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign. Now, congressional investigators have made what is perhaps an even more consequential discovery: Knowledge of the dossier project, during the campaign, extended into the highest levels of the Obama Justice Department. The department´s Bruce Ohr, a career official, served as associate deputy attorney general at the time of the campaign. That placed him just below the deputy attorney

But the revolution has been selective. I have long maintained that when I was 7 years old, Woody Allen led me into an attic, away from the babysitters who had been instructed never to leave me alone with him. He then sexually assaulted me. I told the truth to the authorities then, and I have been telling it, unaltered, for more than 20 years. Why is it

The French ambassador to the United States used Pearl Harbor Day as an occasion to bash America’s position on World War II in the 1930s. “In this Pearl Harbor day, we should remember that the US refused to side with France and UK to confront fascist powers in the 30s,” Gérard Araud wrote Thursday night in a now-deleted tweet. The military attack on a US naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on Dec. 7 1941 signaled the entrance of America’s into the war.

Firefighters across Southern California are battling six major wildfires, and brutal Santa Ana winds are expected to continue fanning the flames through Saturday. California´s Department of Forest and Fire Protection tweeted Thursday afternoon that the new fires, the Lilac fire in San Diego County and the Liberty fire in Riverside County, are now being fueled by continued Santa Ana winds and low humidity. Winds are expected to die down some on Friday, before picking up again in intensity on Saturday. The weather is not cooperating with the hundreds of officials trying to contain the flames in the region. Red flag

Did anyone else notice a crucial passage in Franken’s statement on the Senate floor this morning? He said that he’d be resigning “in the coming weeks.” How many weeks? Will reporters ask him for a date certain? Notice, too, that he neither apologized nor admitted to any wrongdoing. Quite the opposite—he essentially implied that some of his accusers are lying, and he couldn’t help but attack President Trump and Roy Moore. I think Franken is attempting a super-Clintonian dodge. He had to address the immediate firestorm, but he’s probably holding out for Roy Moore to win the election in Alabama next

President Trump has an ace in the hole that his opponents are forgetting. Again! Despite all the sideshows — the alleged Russian interference in the election, obstruction of justice probes, ringers in Trump investigations and, of course, the president’s big mouth and poor judgment — Trump became president because of one thing: The US economy hadn’t been growing enough to please voters. The sideshows (which I’ll get into later) continue, but the economy looks like it is doing better. So Trump is scoring points on the one issue that matters most to voters. According to the official numbers, the economy is growing moderately

Before last week, Brian Ross’s greatest claim to infamy was that he had his hand slapped by a former pope. He once ambushed Joseph Ratzinger (then a cardinal) as he got out of a car in Rome. Hitting him with questions related to the abuse scandal, Ross caught Ratzinger raw, which threw him badly enough that he slapped Ross’s hand and barked at his bad manners. Now Ross has had his hand slapped again, not so much because he committed an act of journalistic malpractice that smeared the presidency and caused markets to tumble but because he made his colleagues look

The quest for collusion is over as the
desperate shriek for impeachment begins

The quest for collusion is over. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation has not — either through leaks or announced indictments — revealed any collusion, and Democrats and their allies in the liberal mainstream media know that it never will. This reality is setting in among the president’s clearer-thinking foes, and they are transitioning to an obstruction of justice claim in an effort to sustain the fight with President Trump. Mueller’s investigation has been looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 election since May. His team has made a number of consequential findings, but none of them establish collusion

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Frank Luntz, a GOP establishment messaging consultant, was visibly flabbergasted as every single one of his focus group participants in a Birmingham area Vice News-produced panel backed Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”

I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars. He added that gusty winds and

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

Comedian Sarah Silverman addressed the topic of American nationalism during a monologue on her Hulu talk show Thursday night, describing the “visceral reaction” and fear she felt when an old boyfriend of hers hoisted an American flag on his own property. (Snip) “[My sister] was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance — these things tend to ring a bell for us,’” she said. “Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense. And it made me realize that the things that terrify some people are the same things that give other people great

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday. Brown, who previously studied to become

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
