Media Matters asked for help building a “comprehensive” database of reporters who “get to ask” questions at the White House Wednesday, sending a series of pointed tweets in which the heads of various journalists are circled in red ink.
“[Media Matters] is going to try to maintain a comprehensive database of who gets to ask questions at press briefings,” senior fellow Matthew Gertz tweeted. “We need your help to ID some!”
White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who is clearly in over his head, has ignored the established order in the first few briefings, opting to favor outlets such as The New York Post and Christian Broadcasting Network.
