Donald J. Trump, in his first press conference since July, did his thing, including calling out CNN (and Buzzfeed) for “fake news,” and then refusing to call on Jim Acosta, senior White House correspondent of CNN (you can watch it above). (Acosta later said a Trump spokesman threatened to expel him.)
Here’s the thing. In our New Normal, I really wish the White House press corps would show some guts, and when one of their colleagues is unable to ask a question, they forget about competition and get the question asked. Act like a press pool, and decide what three questions (or five, I’m easy) need answered, and then EVERYBODY ASK THE SAME QUESTION UNTIL IT GETS ANSWERED.
You’re welcome. Brand loyalty is dead. Go for the truth.
