Covering the White House when the media is the 'enemy'

Hosted by

On Saturday, President Trump started to make nice with agents at CIA headquarters, but quickly turned to insulting the news media as "among the most dishonest human beings on Earth." Press Secretary Sean Spicer followed up with a bitter attack of his own. But yesterday — at his first official White House news briefing — Spicer gave a kinder, gentler account of his position.

Jay Rosen, media critic, writer and Professor of Journalism at New York University, provides some perspective.
