CNN has split its screen to display a chart checking the facts in parallel with the briefing by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday.
A box entitled "Facts First" listing the key points of the new national climate assessment led by the government was presented while Sanders defended the report by President Donald Trump, released during the Thanksgiving weekend. century.
CNN's chips did not exactly call Sanders' dubious requests in real time. But they served to make the difference between the authority of the report, which involved 300 scientists and 13 federal agencies, and the rejection of the Trump administration's findings.
The position of the network was well received on Twitter:
An interesting approach from CNN here – put the real facts in a big box next to Sarah Sanders. It would be worth exploring this kind of factual contextual video for Trump's own speeches. https://t.co/FrpvfSviT5

It's great to see CNN insert a new box "FACTS FIRST" alongside the congenital liar – Sarah Huckster Sanders – at her "press conferences".
Here is an even better idea:

Congratulations to @CNN for contextual dialog next to lyin @PressSec at the fake press conference today. I think other channels should follow or not broadcast at all. If all they will do is harm the American ppl. #CNN #SarahSanders
