CNN’s Jim Acosta Breaks Press Briefing ‘No Cameras’ Rule and Takes Picture of Sean Spicer
No cameras were allowed in the White House press briefing on Monday, but CNN’s Jim Acosta broke the rules and took a picture anyway.
The liberal press pool act like children in the briefing room. In keeping with that attitude, Acosta and April Ryan, of the embarrassing American Urban Radio Network, decided to throw little tizzy fits and temper tantrums. CNN’s Acosta decided to break the “no cameras” rule and snap a picture of Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
At one point, CNN’s Acosta opined:
Why are the cameras off, Sean, why did you turn them off? Can you just give us an answer to that? Can you tell us why you turned the cameras off? Why are they off?”
Acosta’s pushing inspired other reporters, including American Urban Radio Network’s April Ryan, a CNN contributor, to jump in.
‘It’s a legitimate question,’ Ryan said. ‘It’s a legit question,’ Acosta parroted. ‘You are a taxpayer funded spokesman for the United states government. Can you at least give us an explanation as to why the cameras are off?’
Spicer ignored the unrest and called on One America News Network’s Trey Yingst only to be confronted about the elephant in the room – the off-camera briefing that was taking place.
Yingst asked Spicer to clear the air so they could move on and explain why the White House was being so secretive.
‘Can we get this out of the way? Can we address the cameras issue?’ Yingst asked.
Spicer shot back: ‘Yes, some days it will happen, some days it won’t. The president’s going to speak today in the Rose Garden, I want the president’s voice to carry the day. So, look, this is nothing inconsistent with what we’ve said since day one.’
