[See NewsBusters for more.] Top White House aide Sebastian Gorka got into a contentious, fiery argument with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on Wednesday, deriding that it’s “sad to see CNN fall to this.” To Cooper’s face, he challenged, “I know you want salacious, sensational coverage for your ratings, so your corporate sponsors and owners will have... more money. But that's not media. That's not reportage. It's just fake news.” The two sparred over the use of unnamed sources. The deputy assistant to the President reminded Cooper that CNN used these “sources” before former FBI head James Comey was to testify before Congress.
