    Personally, I enjoy watching Sean Spicer spar with the press. It’s good entertainment. But press briefings don’t make sense in 2017. And they certainly don’t make sense for a Trump presidency. I’ll tell you why. The role of press briefings is to create two complementary illusions. The first illusion is that the administration is providing new and useful information. That rarely happens. And when it does, it could have been done more easily in the form of a press release in response to a written inquiry. A written response can be faster than a press briefing because it doesn’t depend...

    For those who’ve been subjected to the MSM’s cavalcade of criticism of President Trump’s press conference of yesterday, some welcome relief from Ann Coulter’s corner. On Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday, chatting with witty and insightful guest host Mark Simone, the inimitable Ann offered up these observations: Trump’s performance was “magnificent”—Ann could watch it “over and over again.” She notes Trump mentioning that CNN is not just all anti-Trump, but “there’s so much hatred for me.” On courts ruling against exec order: it’s as if the New York Times and Salon editors are “running the court system.” Listen to audio...
  • Mika: Pence Won’t Give Trump Reality Check Because ‘He’s Waiting to be President’

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Morning Joe‘s coverage of President Trump’s press conference of yesterday was predictably apocalyptic. Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle asserted that Trump was detached from “reality.” But the most explosive moment came when Scarborough asked who within the White House will go to President Trump and tell him that he’s undercutting his credibility. When Mark Halperin proposed VP Pence for that job, Mika Brzezinski replied: “it’s not happening. He’s waiting to be President.” Was Mika implying that Pence has adopted a conscious strategy of letting President Trump implode so that he can assume the presidency when Trump is driven from office?...

    Donald Trump toys with a CNN reporter again, calling his network “very fake news” at today’s epic press conference where he pulled no punches and repeatedly called out the mainstream media for their bias and anti-Trump coverage. CNN’s Jake Tapper, NBC’s Chuck Todd, and Fox News’ Shepard Smith all threw a hissy fit about the way Trump treated the media. Media analyst Mark Dice has the story.

    Trump Triumphs Over Press Feb 16, 2017 RUSH: In very measured tones, the president is firing howitzers at the media and the Washington establishment. I’ll characterize this later. Let’s just JIP it now to get in here while we can. THE PRESIDENT: …doing what I pledge to do. That’s all I’m doing. I put it out before the American people, got 306 Electoral College votes. I wasn’t supposed to get 222. They said, “There’s no way to get 222; 230 is impossible,” 270, which you need? That was laughable. We got 306. Because people came out and voted like they’d...

    Stunned by today’s press conference? So were the broadcast and cable news network anchors who led special coverage. Here’s what they had to say right after Pres. Trump finished his remarks: ABC: “What a remarkable window into the state of mind of the President of the United States right there.” – George Stephanopoulos, 2:12 p.m. ET. CBS: “Well, a remarkable news conference…” – Scott Pelley, 2:12 p.m. ET. NBC: “Pres. Trump concluding an hour and 10 minute long session with reporters in the East Room…” – Lester Holt, 2:12 p.m. CNN: “Wow, what an amazing an hour and 15 minute...

    Thursday following President Donald Trump’s press conference to announce his pick for Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh applauded Trump’s performance on his nationally syndicated radio show. Limbaugh while the media still won’t warm up to Trump, it was what his supporters wanted to see, which was a willingness to tout his achievements and take on some of the claims from the media.

    Following President Trump’s Wednesday press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker passive aggressively savaged Christian Broadcast Network’s David Brody and Townhall editor Katie Pavlich for questions to Trump that Welker deemed not to be “tough questions” concerning Mike Flynn. Welker told NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt that it was “striking” to witness the President inform the media that he believe Flynn “was treated unfairly” thanks to “leaks in the media — leaks by the intelligence community to the media.” Welker Passive Aggressively Attacks Brody, Pavlich for Not Asking Trump ‘Tough Questions’ However,...

    "I recommend people that have some moral compass." I’ve embedded the entire video of Trump’s presser yesterday, although for this piece I’m focusing mainly on his beatdown of CNN and BuzzFeed, which starts at 1:07:45. Once you get to it, stick with it for awhile, because Trump takes a few questions on other subjects but comes back to the matter several times. He’s got harsh words not only for the media but also for the intelligence community, which he smacks down for constantly running to the press every time they talk to him. To demonstrate this, Trump explains that before...

    Gabriel Sherman writes in New York Magazine that President-elect Donald Trump's got the upper hand against the media on Wednesday by turning his first post-election press conference "into a debate over journalistic practices." But observed as spectacle, Trump came away with a resounding victory. That's because Trump won even before he stepped before the microphone, by making the media the story. Last night, BuzzFeed published a salacious 35-page oppo-research dossier on Trump that alleged Russia possessed sexual and financial dirt on Trump that could be used to blackmail him. BuzzFeed justified reporting the unverified oppo-research document - which had been...

    Townhall ^ | 01/11/2017 | Cortney O'Brien
    President-elect Donald Trump held his first press conference since winning the November election on Wednesday at Trump Tower, and boy it did not disappoint. Trump bemoaned the lack of honest reporters in today's culture, particularly after a new report from BuzzFeed that suggested Russia had incriminating information on him. The piece was uncorroborated. It was rumored CNN also published the report, but Jake Tapper pushed back at that claim after the press conference. Trump took out his frustration on the media in the room. BuzzFeed, Trump said matter-of-factly at the presser, is "a failing pile of garbage," while also criticizing...

    President-elect Donald Trump lashed out at new reporting on allegations about his ties to Russia in a series of tweets-Wednesday, accusing the intelligence community of leaking information to the public and asking, "are we living in Nazi Germany?" I win an election easily, a great "movement" is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state! — "Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?" he added.

    President-elect Donald Trump’s businesses provide an unprecedented opportunity for conflicts of interest and even corruption. And he just canceled the news conference where he was supposed to tell Americans how he’d deal with them. On November 30, Trump said that he’d announce his plans for the Trump Organization, his sprawling business empire, on December 15, promising he would be “leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Now that press conference has been canceled, according to Bloomberg Politics’ Kevin Cirilli, Caleb Melby, and Ben Brody.

    If you wondered what the internal focus grouped feedback was to Secretary Clinton’s Commander-in-Chief forum presentation, you only need to note that first thing this morning her campaign hastily scheduled a press conference on the tarmac of the airport. Clinton’s first press conference in 278 days. Essentially the press conference was typical Clintonian deflection and complaints about media coverage of her performance. From the video it appears four questions were agreed upon, but another was taken by Andrea Mitchell. Obviously the sycophants in the traveling Clinton press poll (all pre-approved by the campaign) did not ask any substantive questions…. And...

    Hillary Clinton was never asked about her controversial private email server or her family's foundation during her first formal press conference Thursday in 278 days. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, addressed reporters on the tarmac in Westchester, N.Y., at a podium in front of her airplane. She was asked six questions over 15 minutes about the tightening polls in the presidential race, and whether she believed she was being treated different in the race because she is a woman.
