Sarah Sanders is a liar. Everybody knows that, even Trump supporters. She's paid to spin the most egregious, most outlandish bullshit ever promulgated on the American people. That, to Trump, is her job. Finally though, CNN is taking some baby steps to counter that, even as they continue to show Trump rallies live and in primetime. MSNBC didn't even bother to show Sander's first press briefing in over a month, essentially calling them worthless exercises in deception. Some agree with that approach also.

On Tuesday, during a White House press briefing, CNN decided to try out a new strategy to make sure the American public knows the facts and not the lies told by press secretary Sarah Sanders.

During the briefing, Sanders started off by dismissing scientists’ prediction on climate change and said that their report is not based on facts.

“The president is certainly leading on what matters most in this process and that’s on having clean air and clean water,” Sanders began, before saying that the latest report came to “radical conclusions” that “contradicts long-established trends.”

As she was telling her lies, CNN put up a window that read: “CNN Facts First: climate change report involved 300 scientists, 13 federal agencies.”

CNN earned some props from political media watchers for doing this live, and later Brooke Baldwin in the studio as they took apart what Sarah Sanders was attempting to do.
