The United States government will not be allowing camera coverage of today's WH briefing. Audio only... embargoed until the end. - @JimAcosta / @CNN
As you might have heard, the White House is scaling back on its on-camera press briefings.
Sean Spicy-er has accused snarky reporters of using the White House press briefing to play up to the cameras--in order to become YouTube stars.
There's a lot of them that want to become YouTube stars and ask some snarky question that’s been asked eight times. - Spicey said.
He went on. 💅🏿 The nice thing about turning the cameras off sometimes, and I find this, is that it is not ‘performance art,’ as you call it, that you end up having, I think sometimes, a more substantive discussion about actual issues.
And so there is a bit of snarkiness now with the press because, again, a lot of them are more focused about getting their clip on air than they are of actually taking the time to understand an issue.
