Here's our look at the Trump administration and the rest of Washington:
- After the attack in New York that killed 8, Trump calls for merit-based immigration
- Trump spokeswoman dismisses Russia-related indictments: "Nothing to do with" the president
- Special counsel's inquiry yields first guilty plea, from former Trump aide who lied to the FBI
- Paul Manafort and another Trump campaign aide indicted; Manafort's bond is $10 million
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted Thursday that President Trump is an "incredible advocate" for the 1st Amendment.
Then she defended his threat to investigate news organizations with a complaint that Trump had not received enough positive news coverage.
"With the 1st Amendment, with those freedoms, also come responsibilities, and you have a responsibility to tell the truth, to be accurate," Sanders said during her regular briefing with White House reporters.
She cited a Pew Research Center study that she said asserted that the vast majority of early Trump coverage had been negative, before listing issues on which she believed the administration had achieved great success.
"You've only found 5% of your time to focus on some of those big issues," Sanders said. "And, frankly, those are the issues most Americans care about, not a lot of the things that you cover, not a lot of the petty palace intrigue that you spend your time on."
