Trump White House Making Itself More Accessible To The Media

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced the Trump Administration would be opening up the press briefings by including four Skype seats.

“I’m excited to announce will have four Skype seats, live, here in the briefing room. This will open up the briefing to journalists who live beyond 50 miles from the Washington, D.C. area and to organizations that do not currently have a hard pass,” Spicer told reporters in the briefing room.

Spicer went on to say about the new initiative, “We’re excited to open up to the field and fold here a diverse group of journalists from around the country who might not have the convenience or funding to travel to Washington. I think this can benefit us all by giving a platform to voice that are not necessarily based here in the beltway.”
