Senate judiciary probe may review obstruction of justice

To the ire of many, the White House announced on Monday that the day's press briefing would be held off-camera and without audio.

"The White House press secretary is getting to a point... where he's just kind of useless", Acosta said of Spicer.

Speaking to "CNN Newsroom" anchor Brooke Baldwin after the briefing, Acosta said covering briefings under President Donald Trump's administration is like "covering bad reality television". "They're acting like cry babies because they can't cover things the way that they want, ' but, ya know, maybe I am old fashion, Brooke but I think that The White House for the United States of America Should have these questions answered on camera so we can see what they are saying". Reporters were simply told "TBD" on Sunday night. Spicer and Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders have continued to hold briefings, but they have on occasion prohibited cameras. More recently, reporters have noted, audio has been restricted as well. Neither Ingraham, Martosko, nor Spicer immediately responded to The Daily Caller's requests for comment.

Alvaro Morata Sale Done, Says Former Real President Ramon Calderon
Their need is even more pressing after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's departure, with the 35-year-old having netted 17 of those goals. Antonio Conte , manager of the Premier League champions, signed Morata for Juventus in 2014 but left before he arrived.

"There must be collective action or else the stonewalling will continue", Acosta added. Many journalists were alarmed as the Trump campaign blacklisted more than half a dozen news organizations during the presidential campaign, but there was no serious, concerted response.

"That is the only conclusion one could draw", Acosta said. Earlier this month, the White House banned networks from carrying briefings live.

In addition to briefings occurring less frequently, Spicer and Sanders increasingly fail to give adequate answers to basic questions, such as whether the president believes in climate change.
