Well. It’s more of an unpaid internship really. Style the title as you will; the unpaid part is certain. But I’m going to need someone in D.C. possibly as soon as next week.
Talk radio hosts and bloggers could be invited to official White House press briefings once the Trump administration takes office, under a highly irregular proposal being floated that may also remove briefings from the West Wing.
Trump’s pick for White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said on Sunday that due to “off the chart” interest in the new administration, the president-elect was considering moving briefings from the James S Brady press briefing room, which has been used by presidents to address the media since 1970, to a venue with a greater capacity.
A report published by Esquire magazine on Saturday indicated the venue could be inside the Old Executive Office Building, just west of the White House.
“I know change is difficult sometimes,” Spicer told Fox News. “But sometimes change can actually be better.”
Spicer argued the proposal would mean “you can involve more people, be more transparent, have more accessibility”. He suggested that this would mean outlets that are not traditionally part of the White House press corps would be able to ask questions during presidential press briefings.
There’s a lot of talk radio and bloggers and people that can’t fit in right now and maybe don’t have a permanency because they’re not part of the Washington elite media,” Spicer said, “but to allow them an opportunity to ask the press secretary or the president a question is a positive thing. It’s more democratic.”
Could be calling on you. Justin lane / EPA.
Yes, more democratic. More bloggers. Carlos Slim has his blog’s reps there. Why can’t I have mine? More then, here, for you, from there.
I may have to make the first few trips myself. GoFundMe page for that coming soon…
If you’re serious about this unique employment opportunity, then I’m serious about the unpaid thing. Otherwise my H.R. protocols are much like Fox News – legs and all that. Apply in the comments section below. Only independently wealthy, free/anarchist-thinking, cigar-loving, gun-toting, hot, single women between the ages of 19 and 27 will be considered. Looks and attitude count more than degree or professional pedigree. I discriminate … but do not pay… No money…
