Good.   Either defy the order or walk out.   You'll get nothing but lied to either way so you may as well preserve your professional dignity.

Not talking to you, CNN.  You're screwed.

The role of the White House press secretary is to get the administration's message out.  Seeing how Trump has no consistent messages, there's no real point to a press briefing.  The reporters just stand around asking awkward questions about why Trump flip flopped on his latest position.

They should simply stage a mass walkout every time broadcasting is disallowed.

Good!

excellent. one more of the mainstream media that can be permanently banned from White House press briefings. Don't like the rules? too bad. play stupid games win stupid prizes. I hope whatever organization this reporter is with is banned for the entirety of Trump's 8 years.

"Every time we let you broadcast these things, you make us look stoopid!"

No. Every time you tell an easily fact checked lie, you look stupid. Why not try telling the truth as a change up?

I read the comments. Jesus... They actively think that the WH is doing the right thing because fake news gets it all wrong. Even though a live feed would actually be to the WH's benefit...

I need a drink, and it's not even 1PM :(

Apparently OMB director Mick Mulvaney was using visual aids in his presentation... during an audio-only press conference!

The fox viewers comments have amazing logic. In addition to calls to lock her up, they think preventing recordings will make it harder for reporters to make up fake news. Somehow they don't seem to realize without recordings you have nothing to compare the reports to, and you'll just have to trust the mainstream media about what was said. Of course they trust Fox News to tell them the real story.

Because then you libs will make us look like traitorous asshats by accurately reporting on our misdeeds and quoting us directly and in context.

That is what they are hoping for.   Any excuse to end press briefings totally.

That's the entire point. No video means the MSM can't show hard evidence of what was said. Thus, the Administration can claim that they didn't say (horribly stupid/offensive thing here), and that the MSM are all liars, and you can only trust the Right Wing Noise Machine to tell you the Truth™.

This. Quite the contrary, keep pushing the questions until Sanders yells "I don't know! I don't know!" in desperation.

Why are you so keen to see journalists banned from press briefings for trying to report on the truth?

I thought the first duty of a Starfleet officer was to seek out new life and have sex with its attractive females?  Or was that just Kirk's first duty?

Mikey1969: Has the WH even attempted a rationalization for this yet?


They don't want recordings, so they can claim the press lied and turn the whole thing into a "he said she said" scenario.

With recordings, you can easily just play it back. Without them, then you just have to "trust" that lying press.

It's completely false and a piss poor way of accomplishing their goal, but that's standard for Trump.
