Sean Spicer Hosts Office Press Gaggle – The Uninvited MSM Members Go Bananas…

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held an impromptu press gaggle in his office earlier today, not a “briefing”.  Uninvited MSM tender sensibilities jump immediately into full-offended mode and plot revenge coverage as counter attack.

Washington Post editor Marty Baron’s pearl-clutching statement:

    So we have the presidency, the senate, the house … can’t they come up with interesting ways to take down CNN, Washington Post, and other Corrupt Media organizations.

    Maybe make it known who owns these companies, how they direct editors and how they slant coverage, and find out if they take in money from foreign governments .

    They should make stricter libel/slander rules (MSM can say whatever they want, but they can be sued if it harms people when story was proven false in court of law and show damages (make MSM pay for it like gawker case)

    Now is the time to have the government step in to set up congressional hearings on collusion between media and Dem party and foreign involvement in media slant.

    If President/Senate/House doesn’t act now when they have the majority it will be too late 2-4 years from now, when MSM will double up on FAKE NEWS in trying to influence public to vote Liberal with 24/7 Fake NEWS.

        If the media’s job is truly to hold government accountable and be a watchdog, how on earth is taking money from them not a conflict of interest? It would be in most other industries and situations.

        Any company that cannot produce a profitable bottom line simply does not survive. Why subsidize any company?

      Why do we have a system where we all fund the existence of CNN, MSNBC, etc… with our cable bills ??? They are a linchpin in the MSM, and without their biased manipulation of culture the radical left would fade back into the insane asylums that their leaders came from. Yet by paying for video media “entertainment”, that is bundled with these News/propaganda channels, I am subsidizing the radical leftist Democratic party. I pay the salary of Rachel Maddow, and Jake Tapper and I sort of haven’t much of a choice about this for many years ! I remember an effort a few years back to force A’la cart cable TV which allowed you to only pay for the channels you watch. This effort seemed to fade away…. Were Ryan, Mitch, and McCain at work with the CoC, MSM, and Uniparty to make that go away ??? I wonder if A’la Carte Cable could find its way onto the new Administrations agenda ? Sure would put a dent in the budgets of CNN, and the rest.

        Believe it or not, I’ve been asking telecom service reps about this for the last decade. Most of the time they feed you a line of bullshit, but every once in a while, when you actually have an American on the line, you get the real answer:

        The media companies force the cable providers to sell channels in a packaged format. Cable companies have zero leeway. The entire business construct is dictated from the top down. Probably because they damn well know many channels can’t survive in a competitive marketplace.

Spicer has better things to do than answer the same half-dozen questions over and over and over, and make nice-nice with April Ryan and the like. It’s boring and predictable, and if the “press” thinks this is “informing the American people” … please! They’re just throwing out stupid gotcha questions every day. The American people are learning nothing from these briefings. Total waste of time. Spicer could be more productive doing something else.

    let the whining begin CNN (all weekend I suppose) – alternative facts presented FYI.

    However, as the New York Times itself reported in 2015, President Barack Obama met privately with liberal reporters and columnists frequently throughout his tenure in office — “more than a dozen” times. And although he occasionally invited conservative columnists, “Liberal-leaning columnists from newspapers tend to dominate at Mr. Obama’s secret sessions.”

    Obama’s private briefings for liberal members of the media, which excluded conservatives, were well-documented. A few:

    1) December 2012: Several journalists reported that MSNBC hosts were meeting privately with President Obama to discuss the impending “fiscal cliff” fight.
    2) May 2013: NPR’s Ari Shapiro reported that President Obama was meeting privately with “lefty columnists,” but hastened to add that there was “nothing nefarious” about it.
    3) November 2013: President Obama met again with liberal journalists, as Obamacare struggled with the failure of healthcare.gov and other problems.
    4) March 2015: Politico’s media reporter, Hadas Gold, reported that “a group of journalists and columnists,” all on the left, met privately with President Obama, but the White House refused to say “who else was at the meeting or what was discussed.”

    White House invite-only briefing focused on ‘inaccurate’ NYT, CNN reports
    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/wh-invite-only-briefing-focused-on-inaccurate-nyt-cnn-reporting/article/2615715
    —Washington Examiner was at this press gaggle discussion.

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer slammed the media during an invite-only briefing on Friday that excluded several major news outlets, and claimed that various news outlets botched their coverage of a series of recent exchanges between Reince Priebus and deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

    ==> Most of the 40-minute briefing between Spicer and a dozen outlets, including the Washington Examiner, focused on what the White House has deemed “inaccurate” reports by the New York Times and CNN. Citing anonymous sources, both outlets ran stories that said the administration wrongfully asked FBI officials to set reporters straight on President Trump’s relationship with Russia.
    …….
    ==> Spicer also blasted reporters for failing to publish separate stories after the Times’ story was “disproven.”

    ==> “You’ve got this story that comes out from the New York Times with unnamed sources [and] at some point, isn’t the story that the accusations that came out have been disputed?” he asked one reporter in the room. He noted that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif. “came out and said the [Times] story is demonstrably false.”

    ==> The top White House spokesman said that going forward, reporters should refrain from making “serious allegations” unless they have someone doing so on the record.

    Let the enemedia submit questions in writing, and Spicer can pick a few to answer during his press BRIEFING.

    Maybe the President, Congress can pass a law that allows equal time to opposing viewpoint from a representative of person they are reporting on. Where they are given equal space under story-news story where MSM can not comment on. So the MSM can state their viewpoint, and right under-neath it person being talked about can state their position. He said- She said type thing. FAIR and Balanced in the true sense of the word type thing.

      added twist on the idea. MSM states their case against person, then person has equal space to go after the NEWS organization and anchor and speak his mind about what he thinks about the story. Since MSM went after the person, the person should have equal time to go after the Network or face DAY IN COURT, where equal time was NOT given to person being dis-credited.

      That would be FUN media watching… Many of us would turn in to see Trump reps smashing the nework, and sharing juicy stories about anchors lives and secrets about network. The ratings would go through the roof. Food fight! 🙂

They take someone sane and intelligent then they pit them against someone mentally deranged who makes no sense and they battle it out as if that is somehow fair and balanced. Opposing viewpoints are great, but THAT is not what we have with political agenda and propaganda reporters.

The briefing after that, in an entry to a military base near the parade grounds. Next one: Fort Leavenworth, where Spicer can fill them in on examples of what happens to leakers and liars.
