It’s no surprise that CNN has made numerous attempts to undermine Trump’s presidency since before day one. Recently, President Trump called out CNN for what it actually is – a “terrible organization” that spreads “fake news and even almost tossed CNN’s Jim Acosta out of Trump Tower. Isn’t it reassuring to see that Trump’s administration is going to hold the press accountable?
In addition, there is no doubt Trump’s press corps is going to look differently from President Obama’s. Don’t believe me? Just look at what President Trump had installed in the back of the WH press room that is going to put CNN and the MSM head’s in a tailspin.
At his first news conference WH Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated:
“There is this constant theme to undercut the enormous support that he has,” Spicer said. “And I think it’s just unbelievably frustrating when you are continually told it is not big enough, not good enough, you can’t win.”
Speaking out on the reports of the crowd size at Trump’s inauguration, Spicer added:
“It’s a little demoralizing,” Spicer said, “because when you are sitting there and you are looking out and you are in awe of just how awesome that view is and how many people are there and you turn on the television and you see shots comparing this and that.”
So, what now?
H/T I Have The Truth:
The mainstream media has always monopolized the political conversation in this country, but that’s all about to change with Donald Trump’s newest addition to the White House press room.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced that the president has opted to install four seats in the press room that are connected to computers designated for reporters from outside of Washington, D.C., to answer questions via Skype.
H/T The Verge:
“This will open up the briefing to journalists who live beyond 50 miles of the Washington, DC area and to organizations that don’t currently have a day pass,” Spicer said. “As always, any organization is welcome to apply for a day pass. But we’re excited to open up into the field and fold here a diverse group of journalists from around the country who may not have the convenience or funding to travel to Washington. I think this can benefit us all by giving a platform to voices that are not necessarily based here in the beltway.”
”We want to have a healthy and open dialogue with the press corps. and the American people.”
Well isn’t that a refreshing change? Imagine that – an open and honest dialogue from Trump’s administration to the American people. After 8 years of Obama’s administration, it looks like we may FINALLY get that “most transparent administration”.
