Sasse: Trump shouldn’t ‘weaponize distrust’ of press
Shortly after Sasse’s interview on CNN, the president tweeted a video of himself physically fighting against a man who was being portrayed as representing CNN.
The Nebraska senator also expressed concern that the U.S. could get “to a place where we don’t have shared public facts,” or scenarios in which echo chambers within the press arise.
Sasse also said media outlets should admit their mistakes and fire people when necessary.
“There should be journalistic ethics and integrity,” Sasse added.
