CNN reporter shreds 'stonewalling' White House — and says Sean Spicer is 'just kind of useless'

Donald Trump is a master of decieit

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.

Boy killed by bear identified as Anchorage teen
The attack happened on Sunday during an annual three-mile run that weaves its way up and then back down a heavily wooded mountain. Authorities began searching for the teenager after he texted a relative that a bear was chasing him, according to Precosky.


"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.
