Former Press Secretary Defends White House Media Exclusions “Happens Often”

Ari Fleischer who is the former White House press secretary said earlier on Friday that the hysteria promoted by some mainstream media mouthpieces who weren’t invited to the Q&A session by Sean Spicer is basically hypocrisy in its purest form.

Ari Fleischer recommended CNN&comp to “calm down” after Sean Spicer blocked a number of news organizations from attending a White House presser.

Ari Fleischer who served President George W. Bush as a top spokesman tweeted on Friday:

President Trump derided what he calls fake news media during his CPAC speech on Friday saying that:

“I called the fake news the enemy of the people.They are the enemy of the people because they have no sources. They just make them up when they are none. I’m not against the media. I’m not against the press. I’m against the people that make up stories and make up sources.”
