Radio Host Calls Out the 'Elite Media Bubble' During WH Press Briefing
During the White House press briefing on Friday, Alabama talk radio host Dale Jackson got an opportunity to ask a question from a "Skype seat," a new feature unveiled by the White House that lets non-traditional journalists ask questions.
Jackson used his opportunity while asking a question to thank White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer "for taking questions outside the elite media bubble there in D.C."
Jackson, who hosts a morning drive show on WVNN in Huntsville, said on "Risk & Reward" today that the White House press corps doesn't understand everyday Americans like him and his callers.
"They generally think we are nothing but rubes," Jackson said. "If you pay attention to the reaction to my comments, I'll tell you, the stuck pigs squeal. They know that I'm onto something here, and there is an elite media bubble."
"They don't like guys like - some yokel talk show host from Huntsville, Alabama - coming in and asking a question on their time."
He said that's a complete misreading of the presidential election and our society.
"And it's generally pretty embarrassing."
