After news broke about former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s resignation, journalists began setting up camp outside his private residence in Virginia, where he lives with his wife and two children.
The U.K.-based news agency Reuters even had a live feed of Spicer’s house airing on its website.
The news outlet posted this to social media shortly after Spicer made his announcement:
This is not newsworthy. Spicer is at the White House, not at home….and he has young kids. Don’t know why Reuters would do this. pic.twitter.com/XSzYclWdGj

Reuters deactivated the feed from its site Friday afternoon after receiving an onslaught of criticism for launching such an aggressive stakeout at his family home.

I’m all for a good stakeout but this is gross. https://t.co/6XAanZ71RD

The media, being terrible at their job. Well done, guys. It’s a house. https://t.co/YGpzELdeT1

Reporters from the Daily Mail were there as well, and posted several photos of Spicer out walking his dog.
