Donald Trump may include bloggers in his press briefings

January 15, 2017

  It is no secret that Donald Trump and the mainstream media do not get along, in fact that is quite the understatement to say the least as is evidenced by the press conference the President-elect held last week. There has been speculation that because of this Donald Trump would cancel press briefings or possibly just kick the White House press pool out of the White House but if this report is true he might actually be doing to opposite.

  Here is more:

Talk radio hosts and bloggers could be invited to official White House press briefings once the Trump administration takes office, under a highly irregular proposal being floated that may also remove briefings from the West Wing.

Trump’s pick for White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said on Sunday that due to “off the chart” interest in the new administration, the president-elect was considering moving briefings from the James S Brady press briefing room, which has been used by presidents to address the media since 1970, to a venue with a greater capacity.

A report published by Esquire magazine on Saturday indicated the venue could be inside the Old Executive Office Building, just west of the White House.

“I know change is difficult sometimes,” Spicer told Fox News. “But sometimes change can actually be better.”

Spicer argued the proposal would mean “you can involve more people, be more transparent, have more accessibility”. He suggested that this would mean outlets that are not traditionally part of the White House press corps would be able to ask questions during presidential press briefings.

There’s a lot of talk radio and bloggers and people that can’t fit in right now and maybe don’t have a permanency because they’re not part of the Washington elite media,” Spicer said, “but to allow them an opportunity to ask the press secretary or the president a question is a positive thing. It’s more democratic.”

  If this comes to pass it will be quite a departure from the last eight years where talk show hosts and bloggers were maligned by the Obama regime, which at one time accused the American people of listening to the wrong news networks. (Fox News)

  This might be Donald Trump’s way of getting back at the mainstream media but I have to think if more people are involved in the briefings it cannot be a bad thing. The left will accuse him of favoring outlets which view him more favorably but they should remember that Barack Obama did the same thing when he pre-selected which reporters he would allow to ask him questions at his press conferences.

    One reason to move the press is to use the space for Trump’s own media center. Here is one proposal.

    Glad you picked up on this Steve – when I read it elsewhere I though of you! “See Steve … he’s NOT going after the Alt media! That was hilly the billy goat!”
    I’ve been reading his and Putin’s twitters – never was motivated (still not) to read what the current admin. has to say – why waste time and effort reading ‘nothing’ = non-sense! (lies/dis-info/terrorist!)
    Giving “transparence” back its meaning. That’s a good thing.
    Evil always likes to confuse, distort, mis-represent the truth; makes for bad business and puffed up ego-maniacs! – worthless parasites!
    An Aunt in Canada made a snide remark about Trump getting in, so I told her the scoop: how the propaganda media lies to cover the corrupt; and not to listen to what the anti-American news tells her! They have a liberal (twist of a good word) perspective being run thru their veins there, so she probably thought ‘queen of darkness’ was light and good! Wrong. She’d be prosecuting Alt media (you and other bloggers) off the internet air waves!

      It is quite a change after the last eight years when the alt media has been ridiculed! There was talk the Obama regime was going to go after the bloggers and I think Hillary would have as well, but now it appears as if the tide is turning.

      That pretty much sums it up although I don’t think they pray–at least not to the one true God!

        Agree. She probably did some blood sacrifices to the ‘god of this world’ though, but I think God answered the prayer of many believers who requested she not be ‘allowed’ to ‘steal the election’ and get in – period!
        2 Cor 4:4 (KJB) In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
