Press secretary used ‘altered video’ to justify reporter’s sanction
It was bad enough that the White House appeared to have banned CNN correspondent Jim Acosta because of his persistent and hard questioning at President Trump’s press-con.
Worse, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders posted a video of Acosta keeping his grip on a microphone as an intern tried to take it from him. Sand- ers used the tampered video to justify the White House revoca- tion of Acosta’s media access.
It turned out the video had altered speeds to make the reporter seem more aggressive and the intern “more demure.” The video might have come from the far-right website Infowars.
