Spicer allows exception for private no-video press briefing


The White House afforded reporters a few photos of press secretary Sean Spicer, in a slight walk back of restrictions placed on media briefings by the Trump administration.

The White House has clashed with reporters in recent weeks, restricting live recordings of press briefings, and access to Spicer. Spicer made light of the change as the conference began.

“Putting sketch artists out of business now,” Spicer quipped, as last week CNN brought a professional sketch artist in to thwart the restrictions.

CNN’s Jim Acosta made the media’s point of view known shouting at Spicer about the healthcare bill, eliciting the response, “The cameras are off Jim.” Known to stir scenes when the cameras are rolling, Acosta shot back “Why don’t we turn the cameras on? The cameras are right here.”
