CNN: "The Disappearing White House Briefing"
On Thursday, December 27, 2018 CNN aired “The Disappearing White House Briefing”.
In the past few months, under Sarah Sanders, the briefings have become much less frequent and shorter.
The documentary also covered the controversy of Jim Acosta’s behavior and Trump’s excoriation of him as a terrible person, and the resulting litigation.
Earlier Kaitlin Collins had been banned from a Rose Garden event because Trump didn’t like the line of questioning she had posed earlier.
Sean Spicer started out doing the briefings, and was embarrassed by having to exaggerate the Inauguration Day crowd the day after.
Trey Yingst, from OANN at the time, was one of the most successful in getting probing questions asked. Trey now works for Fox News as a foreign correspondent in Jerusalem and often appears.
