- The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is accused of sharing a misleading video of CNN’s Jim Acosta from the conspiracy-theory website Infowars.
- A White House intern tried to take the microphone from Acosta during a heated exchange between the reporter and President Donald Trump at a press conference on Wednesday, and the White House — with no evidence — accused Acosta of putting his hands on her.
- The video shared by Sanders appeared edited to make the moment seem more violent.
- Acosta called the accusation that he put his hands on the intern a “lie.”
The White House is accused of using a video of CNN’s Jim Acosta doctored by the conspiracy-theory outlet Infowars as justification for suspending the journalist’s press pass on Wednesday.
