CNN's "New Day" host Chris Cuomo says the White House is the source of misinformation, not his news network.

"The hypocrisy, the irony that Sarah Sanders is going to look at people and say, 'You know, there's just this stream of misinformation that is calculated to deceive,' yeah — coming from you, coming from the podium, coming from the president," Cuomo said Tuesday, according to The Daily Caller.

"They put out things that they know are not true or are used to conceal what they don't want you to know, and they do it routinely, and when it gets exposed, they blame the media," Cuomo said.

However, he noted that such actions were "fair play" in politics.

"It has always happened that way in politics, you can argue the degree, and whether or not it's right. But it's certainly the state of play," Cuomo said, according to The Daily Caller.

"I just don't get where they think this is going to get them, except for their one little concentrated base," Cuomo added.

The host was responding to statements Monday by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who said that some instances of inaccurate or mistaken reporting from CNN and other outlets were done on purpose.

Sanders made the statements Monday in a verbal sparring session with reporters over President Donald Trump's attacks on "fake news."
