Sketches of White House press briefing released

Freda Brock | 24 June, 2017, 23:24

The news organization wanted to send an artist to sketch the scene so that the public could get a sense of what the room looked like during the briefing, due to the fact that there has been no live audio or video allowed at many recent briefings.

CNN equated the briefing to a Supreme Court argument - an on-the-record event at which cameras are banned. The network argued sketches of the briefing had news value in the same way courtroom sketches do. Indeed, news reports about Priebus's imminent demise often only heighten the president's sense of loyalty toward his chief of staff, whom he views as hardworking.

Media critic Brian Stelter tweeted a picture of artist Bill Hennessy's rendering of Friday's briefing. He has covered a wide range of cases, including the Clinton impeachment proceedings, terror suspect trials, and Guantanamo Bay detainee hearings.

The White House gave no reason for her firing other than a desire for change.

He will begin work at the White House on Monday, July 3, 2017. "I'm not aware of the comments [Baldasaro] made, but again, I'll say it right now, I don't think we should be resorting that kind of language with anyone in our country".

Spicer was asked on Friday afternoon about the rollback in access.

"I'm so busy, and we're doing so many great stuff", she told Earhardt as her husband stood beside her.
