'He Just Wanted to Be on TV': 'Outnumbered' Blasts Reporter Who Had 'Hissy Fit' at Briefing


A bipartisan pair of former White House press secretaries came out in support of the Trump administrations decision to curtail live on-camera briefings.

Former Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer joined Mike McCurry from the Clinton administration in suggesting that briefings be recorded on video but broadcast later rather than live.

Recently, Press Secretary Sean Spicer has held a number of audio-only and off-camera briefings

"We support no live TV coverage of WH briefing. Embargo it & let it be used, but not as live TV. Better for the public, the WH & the press," McCurry and Fleischer tweeted.

According to the Washington Examiner, the two former spokesmen added that too many briefings turn into rounds of "gotcha" questions directed at the Trump administration.

"A better model would focus on facts and substance," they said.

Tension between the White House and the press came to a head Tuesday when a reporter for a Maryland newspaper group and Playboy magazine interrupted deputy spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
