White House Reporter Says Why He Lashed Out at Sarah Sanders: ‘I Don’t Like Bullies’ (Mediaite)

Brian Karem, the executive editor of The Sentinel newspapers and a contributor to Playboy, went viral on Tuesday for a heated confrontation with White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the day’s press briefing.

Wednesday morning, he took something of a victory lap on cable news — first stopping by Morning Joe, and then participating in a panel on New Day. In the latter appearance, he discussed why he lashed out at Sanders.

“I don’t like bullies,” Karem said. “I’ve been tired of being bullied. I’ve been tired of being blamed. I’ve been called an enemy of the people. I’ve been told we’re all fake media.”
