Reince Priebus: Media Needs to Get Its Act Together

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Sunday on Face the Nation that the media needs to “get its act together” in response to President Trump’s public labeling of the media as “the enemy.”

“We’ve gotten to a place, John, where the media is willing to run with unnamed sources, apparently false, leaked documents to create stories,” Priebus said.

Priebus also complained that the media was focusing on unconfirmed rumors instead of the president’s accomplishments.

“Why don’t we talk about the fact that we pulled out of [the Trans-Pacific Partnership]?” Priebus said. “We did a deregulation executive order that takes two regulations for every one that’s been put in place. We nominated Neil Gorsuch. We signed a bill, the president is saving our coal mining jobs. We’ve met the UK. We’ve met with Canada. We’ve met with Israel.”

Instead, the media has focused on “bogus Russian spy stories,” Priebus claimed.
