On Wednesday, CNN host Brian Stelter complained about the lack of White House press briefings in a CNNMedia article, arguing that the reduced number of on-camera briefings proves the president “doesn’t care about the work the press does to inform the public.”
“The lack of a briefing was especially glaring on Tuesday, when Trump and his aides returned from a long trip to Europe. Journalists were clamoring to ask about Trump’s widely criticized treatment of Putin. But no briefing was held, and Trump did not take any questions during an attempt to clean up his pro-Russia remarks from the day before,” Stelter wrote.
In an interview with America host Eric Bolling on Tuesday, Axios media reporter Sara Fischer remarked that Trump’s use of Twitter gives the American people a “real insight into what he is thinking.”

Fox News strategist Sebastian Gorka also spoke with Bolling, calling press conferences “artificial,” and said that “a press conference, at the end of the day, is for lazy reporters to get sound-bites.”
