    • Why are they even called upon in the first place? And where are the members of the press that represent we the people? Instead it is a sparing ground between the host and the alligators. SEAWORLD? …and we the people are simply spectators. I guess it is true that the elite, the politicians, the media, anyone who has a mic, view the people as the knuckle scraping uneducated barbarians who are only important at election time.

      Meanwhile, we are banished back to whence we came, to getting our news and information from tweets and blogs, vanquished once again to the UNDERGROUND, where we have to guess and theorize what the news is from the slop we’re being fed at these SHOWS.

      The more truth we uncover the more it is pushed back down to youtube videos to take its place with conspiracy theories of lizards and ufos.

        Trump, Spicer, et. al. are letting the Urinalists (YSM) make utter fools of themselves on national TV. Giving them enough rope to hang themselves, writ large.

        Here in Germany, it’s amazing how many people look at the media as a bunch of paid, worthless shills, not worthy of the respect normally afforded to those with a “diplom” (more or less a Masters’ Degree level).

        I walked in this afternoon to my wife and son just cracking up laughing at the comments on Die Welt (online media), where the libtards and “fake news-ers” were being skewered. Something about the fellow from Kosovo “having issues”. Indeed. Seems he (and his brother) should never have been here in the first place.

        And we all know that now.

        Only Merkel &co. don’t.

  9. The purpose of press briefings are to provide truth and information for the purpose of LEARNING. To do this there must be real journalists asking questions. A group effort between the press and the president’s spokesman working together for truth sake. That is NOT what is going on here. These briefings are nothing more than a showdown between antagonistic and propagandists who are not interested in providing information necessary for we the people. There aren’t even any real reporters and journalists. These press briefings are for the MSM and the media who do NOT have our best interest in mind.

    I’d rather get news from Wikileaks, it’s not much but at least it is news and lets us know at least some of what is going on.

    Make no mistake about it, that’s all these press briefings are is a daily show. Whether or not that is intentional remains to be seen.

      MoniQue, I agree. President Trump is the “Peoples’ President”, and we are not being represented by these media bohemes. Maybe we should all start to post our displeasure with these Press Briefings” and make our suggestions directly to: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact

      There are many, many more effective ways to disseminate important information than this old, stuffy dog-and-pony show. Maybe brainstorm/share here, get some feedback, tweak and send to WH, or just send… whatever works.

      A few ideas off the top of my head:

      1) offer middle school and high school civics classes the opportunity to Skype questions they’ve researched and prepared. I think we’d get some astonishingly good questions from them. Perhaps once a week a class from a soecific school would be featured. It would tie in well with both Vos’s and Carson’s departments, highlighting schools in inner cities, public schools, charter schools, home schoolers, etc. They would be given a date to interact with Sean, with time to prepare in advance. (Hmmm… they could appear in person, earning scholarships for transportation and lodging…).

      2) Take questions from us at least 2 days a week. We could write in, Skype, live email, etc.

      3) Reduce the number of “regular media” allowed into the Press Room at any given time. Have a lottery for the 2 days per week that the “regular media” is allowed into the Press Room. Several Treepers have suggested each media wonk stand, give their name and the organization with whom they are associated. Own their stupidity and let us know who’s who.

        However, I think you’re right – more visible “un-returnable strikes” on the “bad press” would be nice. He needs to hit them with Skyped-in “real press” more often. That makes their blood boil with nowhere to go.

          • Being able to control a room takes skill and a gift and wisdom. Spicer doesn’t have that skill nor that gift. He is what is called a PUSH-OVER. Push-overs never change. Saps and lops. He has lost the narrative since he started this job. He is the wrong person for the job — unless it is Trump’s objective to carry on this love affair with the swamp media for purposes I know nothing about. But if that is so, then when do we the people get news? Spicer jaw-jacks too much, is defensive, catering and bleeding heart-esque, polite when he’s being pantsed and lets the current carry him. So what if he grabs onto driftwood every once in a while? A zinger comeback or two? He’s still being carried in their current. His press breifings should be called It’s Howdy Doody Time.

        I disagree. I thought he did a great job and knows how to handle them. I didn’t get the impression at all that they were running roughshod over him. I got a lot out of listening to him answer questions. I hope others did too. I don’t mean looking to see how he handled reporters. That wasn’t my goal. I was looking for basic info on what’s happening. Sean supplied the info I was looking for. Sometimes he has to wade through the swamp to do his job. It’s not completely drained yet. I think we should give this some time. We didn’t get into the current swampy mess overnight. We won’t get out of it overnight either.

      To what end? A good theory needs to be striving for a desired outcome. Making the press look stupid is not a useful outcome. That was established already by Trump during the campaign. Campaign is over.

        Requoting for reference:

        “Biggest Trump conspiracy of all. Let the stupid, oppositional and un-American press appear stupid, oppositional and un-American. Sean picking fairly from the crowd (not friends or smart ones) lets the world see it.”

        First, just a minor point – differentiating between an alleged conspiracy (whether by nature or man) and a theory of it. I don’t believe that a theory should do any more than explain in the largest sense possible, and further that the theory be iteratively judged on its flexibility and other meta-properties enabling further explanation and expansiveness. That is the only desired outcome of a theory for me. Explanation as an infinite series.

        As for the alleged conspiracy (really a joking word for the strategy in plain sight), it seems to me very obvious that openly using all forms of “bad cop” against the press was a core principle of the Trump campaign, as you note. But I see that it has continued into the presidency, proving extremely useful. The differences are (1) Trump is now allowing the EFFECTS to change the press itself, so that there are more and more MSM journalists who are escaping the peanut gallery, and (2) Trump is much more selective in treating the press as he did before, but (very important) he still heaps deserved abuse on them in a very strategic way. His use of “FAILING” is even one of the wittiest and most justice-loaded memes on the internet.

        I am going to allege right now that Trump will fix everything – EVEN THE PRESS. And he will not spare the rod in doing so.

      I agree he lets them show us, over and over, how ridiculous they are. He does something else, though, that I really admire. With a likable demeanor, he explains the rationales behind decisions and gives another viewpoint they have probably never heard before now. He is quite possibly changing hearts and minds (I know, this is a long shot) in that room, or wherever he is being watched. He needs those repetitive questions so he can drill into their heads, in the nicest possible way, the decisions and policies of President Trump and the solid reasoning behind them. When I feel low on patience, I think of Sean for inspiration. God bless him!

        Yes – I think you’re right. There is a subset of questions that are “teachable”, and he seems to answer those, even though he has to be repetitive. Others, where people are just pushing for a statement when he’s said no many times, he is much better about chiding the reporter and not answering.

        They are getting better. I really think they are getting better. And it’s probably a combination of things.

          I agree that some questions are ‘teachable’ and it looks to me like Sean takes advantage of those. Nothing wrong with making good use of teachable moments and there’s nothing wrong with pulling the ‘broken record’ routine when needed. Some press people really need that repetition, like having to tell a pesty salesman 3 times to ‘go away’. And I agree that our side is getting better. Not just Sean, but many on our side. So good to see Trump surround himself with great people. That’s one of the main things I’d hoped for last Fall.

    It’s the toughest job in DC. Man in a barrel.
    We think it would be easy to shut them down.
    Problem is that there are answers that the WH wants put out to some questions.
    So, there’s the presentation of those answers.

    The thing the WH has is Skype and they barely use it to limit this dolts.
    Also, he has a ton of staff and others (KAC) who are on the side. But they don’t help him.
    They should signal him or hand him a note, or even a blank note to break the attacks.

    They have good days, but when he wants to shut them down, he does not have a clue.

    WH staff is not that sharp. Too nice. They need to be briefed by Miller. Stephen has the right attitude. And bring in Tammy Bruce or bring in Katrina Pierson or Carl Higbie. Someone who can punch hard.

The briefings are not just for the press. Why put it on video otherwise? It’s also for the general public. As far as letting reporters get away with more than one question, I applaud his decorum, which there has been too little of the past 8 years. It’s good to see leadership in D.C. again, in addition to respectful exchanges, even with those who don’t deserve it.

    I made a kind comment about some ideas to help Spicer, but it was rejected here, so I will not repeat it. I hope Spicer does not give up–he is trying to tame the worst of beasts. I appreciate his comments at the start of the press conferences. He is smart follows President Trump’s philosophy of getting to know the enemy, and treats the press far more fairly than they treat him.

    Ok, I am new here, but is there some secret code to getting comments posted? I have posted a couple things worded nicely, no bad words, on topic. The “awaiting moderation” appears, and then even hours later, my comments are zinged into the netherworld.

    I’ll try this, but if this, too gets rejected, I’ll take the direct hit/hint and move on, even though this is the best site on the web right now. Maybe it is a secret club, and I just don’t know the handshake.

I read them and found nothing wrong, so I’ve restored them. I’m guessing having a comment sent to trash has probably triggered “Askimet” (the WordPress filter) to hold everything else for scrutiny. I’ll leave a note for the other admins to let your comments through. It might take a few more tries before we “train” the WP filter to recognize your comments as OK. Sorry for the confusion.

    So the press guy wanted to know, in advance, *if* there is no evidence of spying on Trump, will Trump apologize? I would turn the question around and demand of the press guy: “Are you saying that the Democrats had no intention to spy on Trump, ever, even if they could totally get away with it?” Then, if the press guy denied that the Democrats would ever spy on their opposition, under any circumstances, even if there were no chance of being caught – I would ask him to leave the press conference, since his readers would never believe him, ever again.

      Oh! If the press guy were asked that; that is such an opportunity, when he says ‘no way the Dems would ever spy on Trump’. To then simply ask; “Well, then, Mr. Press Guy, why would there be a need to even wonder about whether Trump would apologize since there would never be anything to apologize for?” Really, they need to be brought to attention on their contradictions, and publicly.
