You guys are missing the whole point of this thread.
Now...more than ever....there are MORE media outlets in the room for the daily briefings.
Don't you want MORE media in the room?
If not...then just say so.
Example: "I am NOT HAPPY that the president is allowing more media outlets in the press briefings. Why can't we leave things just as they were?"
BTW one person was found to have leaked an (incredibly obvious) question and was promptly fired. If you think that was an appropriate response to her transgression, I'm not sure why you want the organization blackballed until the end of time.
More press isn't the issue. Giving dumb conspiracy theory peddlers front row seats and calling on them over actual journalists because the President can only hit softball, underhand pitches is the issue. Alex Jones does not deserve an equal pedestal to the New York Times. Having more of something doesn't mean it's higher quality or better.
On a positive note, the press conferences are a lot more entertaining now!
