CNN’s Lockhart: Sarah Sanders Is Running an ‘Authoritarian Propaganda Machine’

‘This is the kind of thing you see in authoritarian propaganda machines’

Ex-White House press secretary unloads on Sarah Sanders for running an ‘authoritarian propaganda machine’ (Raw Story)

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is still refusing to discuss why she falsely told reporters last year that President Donald Trump did not dictate a misleading statement about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian agents — and a man who had her job under former President Bill Clinton says she should be ashamed.

Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart, appearing on CNN Thursday, said that Sanders should “absolutely” regret the way that she has repeatedly told blatant falsehoods to the media and has refused to explain herself when called out for making false statements.

“I had that job 20 years ago and there’s probably six or seven or eight women that have had that job since,” he explained. “I never entered a public criticism. This is very different. This is the kind of thing you see in authoritarian propaganda machines.”
