Maybe someone could forward this tidbit of information over to the Clinton Crime Network aka CNN just for the facts. Acosta is having a meltdown as well as many of his colleagues in trying to determine fact from fiction. Or rather, whether they should even bother to care, I give you this:
With mainstream media reporters telling their audiences that the end is nigh over the Trump White House decision to hold fewer press briefings on camera, few are mentioning that the move is not without precedent — with President Bill Clinton’s White House turning off the cameras in the ’90s because they weren’t “necessary.”
Dee Dee Myers in 1993 on why Clinton White House stopped on-camera briefings
But a March 1993 C-SPAN interview with then-White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers is putting a wrench in that particular narrative. In that interview, Myers said they stopped allowing cameras for White House briefings conducted by Communications Director George Stephanopoulos as they weren’t “really necessary.”
She noted that there were multiple briefings where cameras were allowed, and even the beginning of Stephanopoulos’s briefing was on-camera, but that the presence of cameras meant that the briefings were less productive.
“The briefing is more an opportunity to exchange ideas and to have a conversation about what’s happening,” Myers said, in a similar argument made presently by Trump administration officials. “That wasn’t really happening in a way that … as productively as we had hoped. H/T: Breitbart
