Sunday Talks: Sean Spicer Interviewed by Howard Kurtz…

In an interview with Fox News’ Howard Kurtz (MediaBuzz), White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer pushed back against the accusations of CNN’s most delicate whaaambulance passenger Jim Acosta, who complains about the lack of press briefings aired on television.

“It’s sad that he believes if it doesn’t occur on TV — I think some of these reporters are more interested in their YouTube clips than they are in getting factual news. You look at the number of questions asked over and over again just so the reporter can get a clip of themselves saying something or yelling at someone.”

Spicer rightly said the Press Corps posturing gets “repetitive” and tiresome. “To suggest that if it’s not on television is somewhat nonsensical. We engage with the press corps very robustly from early in the morning to late at night. The briefing is one small part of what this staff does.”

    I think Spice Daddy is getting even better than he already was, which was already really good. He’s learning to troll like President Trump does (remember Spice Daddy’s comment about Covfefe? Many other examples).

    I approve Bigly.

      BTW I should probably explain, the reason the ability to ‘troll’ is so important, is because these people aren’t telling or acting like their true selves. When they’re trolled, they drop their composure and show the beast within.

      So for instance, we see Acosta acting like a little child, he would not be acting like that without Spice Daddy trolling him with the off camera briefings.

      Their trolling tactics are making the libs destroy themselves and drop all pretenses.

    Spicer should do live video press conferences with local tv channels, hometown news paper media, and bloggers part of the week….and keep the press conferences without video for MSM (NYT, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CNN, etc) part if the week. Oh, what a temper tantrum we would see. Lol. 😀

    What a bunch of whiny babies! Finally, away from the p-pool, Sean tells it like it is – the quoted paragraphs above detail their foibles – the fact that they are throwing tantrums and missing their daily TV moments is par for the course – they do not attend these briefings to report on the White House News – it is their daily opportunity to obfuscate and obstruct progress – just like their counterparts in Congress – all in it together for the sole purpose of derailing President Trump’s agenda! It is about time Sean exposed them for who they really are and why they attend the briefings – the jig is up kiddies – no milk and cookies for you – go to your room!

    Nice job. Don’t go back. The press briefings are worthless in the internet age if 95% of the reporters are openly hostile Fake News reporters…Do not support Fake News….

    I can kind of understand why the White House press corpse is so upset, they wanted a job that puts them on tv and makes them famous, they find job that puts them on tv and makes them famous, and now they are told they can’t be on tv anymore. Which means they have to start thinking of getting jobs doing the weather or sports on local tv networks, or maybe get into the the reality tv thing.

    The one thing they have left is the annual Correspondents pageant, and President Trump has taken even that away from them by holding televised rallies at the same time. Now wonder they are making a fuss. But showbiz is a tough business, always been that way.

    I absolutely love it! Sean came out today and shared everything we have been talking about! He said unequivocally they ask the same damn questions for their YouTube clips. Now that Muh Russia is actually destroying the Democrat party, no need to ever have an on air press conference. It will drive them Nuts and increase the need for Fake News that will make them irrelevant in less than a year.

      Belief this is a preview to White House putting out their daily briefing in written form, eliminating the swamp creature revisionists from manipulating the President’s agenda.
      A quick way for the White House to fact check reporters which will make it impossible for the manipulators to hide.
      lol funny… Reporters have lost all respect. They cry foul nobody cares.

    Perfect! Even the bloomberg reporter stated that the briefings are much better…

    And Sean nailed it when he said all they want is their little youtube snippets.

    As for our “right to know” – we actually DON’T want to see a bunch of spoilt brats asking the same stupid questions over and over again instead of questions that WE want to hear answers to. It is the reporters job to ask the questions and then REPORT the answers, not grandstand on camera. I prefer to just read the transcripts, tbqh.

    Just kill the darn daily Press Corpse Beatings already.
    Put out a daily press release with the news from the White House and answer around 10 to 20 randomly picked questions submitted in writing from ALL news media.

    NO endless repetition of the same question over and over and over for days on end.

    Each news agency gets to submit TWO questions and no more. That is 12 from the Big 6 and rotate through 6 other news agencies.

    If a location is of immediate concern like WV/ PA coal country or a hurricane path, those local news agencies go to the head of the line for submitting questions and the Big 6 get ONE question each no more.
    …..

    As far as the public’s “right to know” — What a bunch of CRAP! If the big 6 were actually concerned with the public’s “right to know” we would not be repeatedly served warmed over decayed feces instead of news.

    I have to admit that the first day they went without a televised briefing I missed it alot. But later that evening I heard a reporter giving an update on the briefing and it definitely came across more informational, positive, and substantive. So from that perspective it is a win for the White House.

  20. Personally, I don’t care how the briefings are handled as long as the White House controls their message and the Truth gets out to the American people.
    The venue makes no difference to me; I’m flexible…..easy going kinda guy! LOL!!

    I have to admit here – I watch the Netflix series House of Cards. When you see “journalists” like Wolf Blitzer, John King, S. E. Cupp & Sean Hannity appear on that show, they all look like high paid actors. For me, it’s hard to take them seriously. So my take on not having cameras in the room for the WH Press Briefings is a real positive. The fact that they are so miffed by it tells me they’ve realized they have to actually do their jobs. Go figure…………

    I watched a number of these briefings and many of these reporters ask the same gotcha questions over and over again. There are maybe 2 or 3 who ask legitimate questions. These MSM reporters need to be seen on camera for their networks. It doesn’t matter what they ask, they even make things up and it creates the news all of a sudden. I find these briefings from the reporters’ side useless.

    The WH needs to get tough with these idiots.
