Another Off-Camera WH Briefing Draws Protests, Interruptions From CNN

Another Off-Camera WH Briefing Draws Protests, Interruptions From CNN

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday delivered his press briefing off-camera once again, eliciting some protests but giving no clear answer about when filming will be allowed to resume.

We support no live TV coverage of WH briefing.

"'We don't have a great camera person so let's not go on camera as much' is only OK in the short term", the source continued. However, when deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took his place, reporters began searching for Spicer, eventually finding him walking from the Capitol building to his auto.

"There's no camera on, Jim", Spicer said. Look, this is nothing inconsistent with what we've said since day one.

Mr Acosta, who has been one of the staunchest press corps critics of the White House's decision to bar cameras from the press briefings, pushed back in a tense exchange between the two.

Spicer did not say when the next on-camera briefing would be held.

"The camera and live audio bans are part of a disturbing pattern out of the Trump administration to attack institutions that serve as a check on power", the non-partisan organization, which claims more than 700,000 members nationwide, said in a letter addressed to White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

"The White House is not a privately held company, unaccountable to stockholders", added Flynn. Acosta said. "You are a taxpayer-funded spokesman for the United States government". "Can you at least give us an explanation as to why the cameras are off?" Todd's was defending rival news network CNN from White House criticism. He - and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders - tend to be extremely terse when answering questions and, when asked about President Trump's view on a particular issue, often insist they simply haven't asked the president. "But talk to the people, not the press". Even if going to war with the media creates collateral damage to the administration along the way, the ongoing fight will play very well with Trump supporters, and more broadly with Republicans who have long-standing gripes with media bias.

The pair made that case in a column they co-authored for the Columbia Journalism Review in early January, before Trump even took office. But she said they stopped because the live briefings weren't "really necessary".

"There's a video circulating now, whether it's accurate or not, I don't know".
