In another upsetting the applecart move, the new administration is shaking up the Press Room order….
The old way of doing business in the Brady Briefing Room of the White House is now over — and the Associated Press is not happy about it.
The legendary wire service, founded in 1846, is usually the press secretary’s first pick at White House briefings.
“In the Trump administration, mainstream media is about to see its long-standing media monopoly broken up and they’re petrified.”
But under President Donald Trump’s new administration, White House press secretary Sean Spicer has so far not called on AP for the first question.

Apparently the AP is throwing a hissy fit, since Helen Thomas died, they’ve always gotten the first question. Not anymore… The administration has also added four Skype seats, and one question yesterday was from a Providence, RI paper via Skype about sanctuary cities.
Apparently there is also a move afoot to actually move the press room out of the White House to a different location, and, horror of horrors, even allow bloggers to ask questions. Can you imagine that??? 🙂
In other news, water is still wet, the dems and the left are still melting down, and there is a new sheriff in town.
I’m popping more popcorn!
