"I'm simply stating that there should be a certain level of responsibility in that process", she said.
Sanders, President Trump, and millions of Americans have opined that the fake news are promoted intentionally because in many instances (such as CNN and ABC News), reporters failed to verify critical information before publishing their reports and did not correct the bogus stories until hours or days later.
While frequently attacking and lecturing reporters about accuracy and fairness - and using his favorite moniker "fake news" for stories critical of him ― Trump and White House officials have a tenuous relationship with the truth. Huckabee Sanders responded by making a broad statement about what Trump considers to be biased reporting, insinuating that any accidental misreporting by news outlets - such as the recent error made by Brian Ross of ABC News - is done intentionally and maliciously. You can't say that it's an honest mistake when you are purposely putting out information that you know to be false or when you're taking information that hasn't been validated, that hasn't been offered any credibility and that has been continually denied by a number of people including people with direct knowledge of an incident.
Sanders had a testy exchange with reporters on Monday regarding erroneous media reports about the Trump administration over the past two weeks, accusing the press at times of "purposefully misleading" the American people.

Acosta followed up the question about Wiegel's tweet, telling Sanders that "journalists make honest mistakes, and that doesn't make them fake news".

A CNN news director tells a Muslim protester where to stand and how to hold her anti-ISIS sign. "The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them".
Three women on Monday asked Congress to investigate Mr. Trump over allegations of sexual misconduct that date back to the 1980s. Ross was suspended for a month and will not report on the White House going forward.
And over the weekend, the president demanded that a Washington Post reporter be fired for misrepresenting the size of the crowd that had gathered to see his rally in Pensacola. "I think that shows that the network took it seriously and recognize that it was a problem", she said.
