‘The Coverage Is Not Fair’: Spicer Calls Out Mainstream Media

As the media debate over President Donald Trump’s first 100 days hits fever pitch, Howard Kurtz sat down with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to discuss the negative mainstream media narrative of the Trump administration.

Spicer pushed back against the claim that Trump hasn’t accomplished anything significant in his time in office, pointing to 28 bills that have been passed, multiple executive orders that have been signed and the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

“At some point, people have to give this president credit for accomplishing the things he has, instead of constantly questioning,” Spicer said.

Kurtz pointed out that Trump will often respond to criticism or negative stories with accusations of “fake news” or “fake media.”

Spicer said the president is disappointed that no matter what he does and what he accomplishes, there’s always some negative “caveat” in how the mainstream media reports on his administration.

“They assume facts, they take narratives – and continue them – that are clearly not true,” Spicer said. “A lot of times, the coverage is not fair.”

Kurtz asked Spicer if he believes the majority of journalists and political commentators are unfair to the president.

“There are some … that try to sensationalize things, drive narratives that are not fair or not consistent with the facts,” Spicer said. “They’re the first ones to throw the stone and the last ones to admit fault.”
