White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is coming under fire for sharing an apparently doctored video of CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s interaction with a White House intern at Wednesday’s press conference. The video was originally shared by an account linked to InfoWars, a far-right conspiracy website, and appears to speed up the moment of contact between Acosta and an intern while she tried to take his mic away, making it seem like he was aggressively pushing down on her arm. The Washington Post published a side-by-side Thursday, showing the original footage and the apparently edited video. The White House banned Acosta Wednesday—ostensibly because of the interaction—hours after he clashed with President Trump at the press conference, demanding answers on the migrant caravan.
