No Audio or Cameras in White House Press Briefing Leads to CNN Meltdown

True to President Trump’s threats to dial back on full-access White House press briefings, Monday’s edition featured a complete ban on audio or video.

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta didn’t take too kindly to the idea. In fact, he was horrified by the “bizarre” nature of it all.

Appearing on CNN Newsroom with host Brooke Baldwin, Acosta was quick to express his frustration:

“That’s the White House behind me….It’s bizarre,” Acosta said. “I don’t know what world we’re living in right now, Brooke, where we’re standing at the White House, and they bring us into the briefing room here at the White House and they won’t answer these questions on camera, or let us record the audio. I don’t know why everybody is going along with this.”

Acosta continued:

“The White House is refusing to answer those questions on camera or in any kind of fashion where we can record the audio. My guess is because they want their evasive answers not saved for posterity. That is the only conclusion one could draw. That when they give us answers, that it somehow reads better in print than it could be seen on television or heard over the radio.”

Acosta even went so far as to predict how Trump supporters would react to his statements:

“And I guess people can say, well, there goes the media again. They’re acting like cry babies because they can’t cover things in the way that they want. But, you know, maybe I’m old-fashioned, Brooke but I believe the White House for the United States should have the questions answered on camera to see what they’re saying and when they don’t do this, they’re doing a disservice to the people to the country.”

“When, you know, Sean Spicer…just comes in and says you can’t record the video or audio from these briefings, that wouldn’t be tolerated at city council meetings or a governor’s press conference….I just don’t know what we’re doing….It’s like we’re just covering bad reality television, is what it feels like now.”
