President-elect Trump is taking on Washington in a Big Way! Mainstream media has always been one of my biggest issues when it comes to ‘Truth in Politics’! As, I believe they are a big part of the disconnect problem we have in our nation.
Today’s announcement comes as a surprise in his newest move to expand the press corps to now include “non-traditional” media as part of the new administrations venue.
As announced today by the Guardian …
“Trump administration’s proposal for new venue and inclusion of non-traditional media follows president-elect’s latest outbursts against mainstream reporters”
“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.
“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.”
This new administration is starting to really shape up!
It is not that we don’t have enough information, but we are starved for knowledge!
