Sean Spicer is the symptom not the illness

But never mind that.
Politico also reported Thursday that Trump is considering scaling back Spicer's role and as part of potential changes, the press secretary would no longer do daily, on-camera briefings.
As the President held brief conversations with the Federal Bureau of Investigation contenders, word reached the White House counsel's office on the second floor of the West Wing that the order had been signed.
"When you have sort of this combination of all the politics and the questioning about the decision on the Comey front, plus this communication stuff, plus there not being a whole lot of interlocutors for foreign governments, the question that is raised is: how are national security decisions made in this administration?" said Richard Fontaine, the president of the Center for a New American Security in Washington and a former foreign policy adviser to Sen. I think it is destructive and disgusting.
Gingrich went on to declare his support for Trump's proposal to cancel press briefings, and he urged the White House to stop responding to media reports he labelled as "garbage".
Trump is expected to be welcomed warmly by leaders in Riyadh and Jerusalem, but lingering questions over his views on the Iran nuclear deal, commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation security and skepticism of the Paris climate agreement could generate tension at meetings with European counterparts in Brussels and Sicily.
"Just say to the American people, you get to choose", he said. "The media is a corrupt institution and [President Trump] is exhausted of being harassed by people whose only interest is making him look bad".
"There are people here [in Kiev, where Gingrich is visiting] who read this crap and thinks we should be afraid".
To prepare for his trip, Trump has been meeting with briefers including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster, deputy national security adviser Dina Powell and senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner. "This is the best team since Eisenhower", he said.
They need more alternative facts and they need them yesterday.
Even before Inauguration Day, the level of leaking out of this White House was unprecedented, as officials sought to curry favor with the press corps and as factions vied with one another. He's already prepared the ground for a move like the one Gingrich suggests, warning his fans that all negative polls are "fake news" and declaring the "fake news media" enemies of the people.
Into the night, the White House struggled to contain its frustration. There is enormous pressure on his advance teams of young, inexperienced staffers who negotiate the stagecraft of Trump's encounters with foreign leaders and prepare agendas of meetings. The public perception would be that journalists had lost access, but the reality is that access would simply go further underground.

Fernandes said of the improved effort after halftime: "Basically (coach) Peter (Vermes ) had to scream at us in the locker room". The Seattle Sounders' season plunged to new depths on Wednesday night, courtesy of a 3-0 loss to Sporting KC .
What is happening right now is not salubrious skepticism but a kind of mass hysteria, millions of heads plunging with struthioniform insistence into the same sand, as though insisting that reality is something other than what it is, or merely averting our gaze, would somehow alter the truth. "But if it was intentional, I don't even know what is worse", Pelosi said, according to the Hill.
We owe it to ourselves to take account of reality. "This isn't a promotion, but that's one of the things the media gets wrong every time".
McMaster all but said that publicly from the briefing room lectern. How about Newt Gingrich for press secretary?
"Whatever Washington, D.C., may be focused on at any given time, rest assured, President Donald Trump will never stop fighting for the issues that matter most to the American people", he said.
As a journalist who is also a frequent critic of the mainstream media establishment's double standards, I think barring reporters from the White House would be a awful idea.
