Gingrich Says Media Isn’t Fair to Trump…..So He Should Close Press Briefings Room

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is an expert on hostile media in his decades as a conservative on the national scene – now he’s proposing a way that President Donald Trump can take on the liberal bias that reporters won’t like.

In an interview conducted by phone with Politico, Gingrich said that the president out to “close down the White House press briefing room” and that reporters “should be banished to a nearby Starbucks.”

“I am personally offended by the American news media,” Gingrich said. “I think it is destructive and disgusting. It is a danger to the country right now.”

Instead of a press briefing, Gingrich said White House spokesman Sean Spicer should field questions from the American people.

“Just say to the American people, ‘you get to choose,’” Gingrich said. He added that the closure would send a message “that the media is a corrupt institution and (Trump) is tired of being harassed by people whose only interest is making him look bad.”

Gingrich also said the press “are nuts” and reporters should not print anything information they cannot attach a name to.

The interview ended with the following:

“Gingrich said he was walking home from dinner and had little else to say. ‘Goodbye,’ he said, before the phone clicked.”

Gingrich’s remarks echo what he wrote in an op-ed for Fox News earlier this week, when he declared that “the President does not owe anything to the Washington press corps and the left-wing hypocrites who dominate today’s news media.”

“Since Watergate, the news media has acquired a steadily more arrogant attitude and has moved further and further to the left,” Gingrich wrote. “Today, they are adversarial opponents of conservatives — especially the Trump administration.

“I learned the hard way as speaker of the House that I could not regularly meet with reporters on camera,” he recalled. “It set up an arena for gotcha questions. Reporters gained imaginary points for finding stupid, narrow, often irrelevant things to argue over. Instead of being an opportunity for a genuine public dialogue, the daily on-camera briefings became a bloody battleground — totally to my disadvantage. Within a few weeks, we were forced to stop.”
