  • No cameras no audio White House keeps undermining press briefing

Among the harshest critics of Monday's decision were CNN anchors Wolf Blitzer, who told viewers "normally we'd be airing the White House press briefing. but unfortunately we're not allowed to show it to you live", and Jim Acosta, who tweeted a photo of his socks in lieu of a picture of Spicer during the gaggle.

Before Trump took office, there had been concerns among the White House press corps that his team would scale back the number of daily press briefings, or move them to another location, outside of the West Wing.

He called the situation "bizarre", and said, "I don't know why everyone is going along tight this".

The drama comes after weeks of rumors that Trump planned to shrink Spicer's public role after the president's first foreign trip overseas.

In response to networks like CNN that chose to broadcast audio of the briefing, even without a visual to accompany, the White House barred attendees from doing that, too. "It's not even like we're covering a White House anymore, with Kellyanne Conway and Omarosa in the briefing room off to the side of Sean, refusing to be on camera".

"I don't know what world we're living in right now", Acosta said on air after White House press secretary Sean Spicer took questions from reporters but didn't allow video or audio coverage of the exchanges. "He will make another comment today at the technology summit".

"I don't know", Spicer said last Monday, during the only on-camera briefing of the week, when asked if Trump would make good on his word and testify under oath on the Russian Federation investigation. "And there are days that I'll decide that the president's voice should be the one that speaks and iterate his priorities".

At this time, it is unclear if the White House will continue to hold press briefings similar to today's fashion.

While the president would still like Spicer to do briefings from time to time, Spicer's preference is to work exclusively behind the scenes. "So, from that vantage point, it's very useful for the president and for his White House staff".

"I don't know why everyone is going along with this".

Sanders said in a statement, "We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation".
