Personally, I do miss these events, but I understand that they've become a spectacle, with members of the press injecting themselves into becoming part of the story. Its a shame really because these briefings did provide more information and transparency.

The blame for the near-zero briefings, in the end, is on the press White House correspondents and their organizations. They made these briefings an unappealing medium for the administration to use to update the public. It seems like they didn't foresee their behavior causing these events to be dramatically scaled back.

To so ignorantly attack the Press Secretary is an example of this horrible behavior. It is almost laughable to hear someone argue that because the press briefing event schedule changed, then there's no need for a Press Secretary.
Thus why I used the word "generally" because I also realize they were not always done daily.

I however do not agree that the blame lies only with the White House correspondents and their organizations. Far from it. The White House itself shares much of the blame. Sanders did nothing more than parrot Trump and when repeatedly called on the carpet for the blatant lies or spins did nothing but continue the spin. She was hardly someone who worked with the press corps and was herself quite adversarial towards them, even herself refusing to say they were not the "enemy of the people." She served one person, and that was Trump.

If indeed the job of the Press Secretary is as I roughly outlined above ( and you have provided nothing to disprove that) and that is no longer happening, or is happening so infrequently as to make it pretty much meaningless, then why pay someone $180,000 a year for the title and not the work? That is a waste of taxpayer money for a job that is currently not needed.
Your post reads as though you think the WH Press Secretary is there only to perform briefings. Further you seem to believe the position has been or should be independent from the President.

You really should educate yourself on the position. 🤦🏻*♂️

In her case, her title should should have been "Assistant Liar".
Be interesting to see if the good people or Arkansas want someone like that running for Governor-she will likely have to defend her innumerable statements which had nothing to do with the truth.

Once again, you are free to post your vast knowledge of what it is. LOL

Joe Lockhart gave a very informative interview this evening on CNN ( yes,I know, you and your kind will automatically dismiss it because A), He was a Clinton press secretary and, B), it was given on CNN) and he detailed what the position entails and why she failed miserably at it (other than defending Trump).

One thing he did say that I had not thought about was that one key job the press secretary has is they provide equal access to the media outlets for dissemination of information and it helps keeps the favoritism at bay (I am paraphrasing here) which is not happening in this administration with Trump using Fox News as his almost de facto state sponsored media outlet.

Yeah, regarding Clinton, he lied about getting a blowjob-that was made into some sort of a huge ethical and moral deal. Meanwhile, we had a balanced budget, a truly great atmosphere of optimism and supreme popularity of the president.
Compare to what we have now.

Bill Clinton Impeachment

President Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives (but not the Senate) because he LIED TO CONGRESS while under oath.

William Clinton committed perjury before a grand jury in a federal civil rights trial, and suborned the perjury of others in the same investigation. There is absolutely no question of this. It was, for one example, the reason Linda Tripp recorded (on the advice of counsel) her conversations with Monica Lewinsky.
Not very woke of you to go on and on with this "it-was-all-about-sex" bullshit.

I'm willing to bet you'd lie about getting a blowjob regardless if you were married.
So would 98% of the males on here. He lied about getting a blowjob.

Trump has done far worse, is less popular and the economy is not as good as Clintons.

Funny, Trump has been deposed in civil lawsuits some 100 or more times and it is common knowledge he has been less then truthful in many of them (one of the most notable was Trump denying knowing Felix Sater in a 2013 deposition despite Sater having an office on the 26th floor of Trump Tower, the Trump organization printing Sater's business cards identifying him as a Senior Advisor to Trump) and having to walk back statements he has made when confronted with documents to the contrary. And, these civil depositions are given under oath. So don't sit here and think Trump is all lily-white when it comes to telling the truth under oath.

It was just a general commentary on what it takes to get elected in Arkansas. Didn't mean to derail this fine conversation.

Sexually abusing an intern with a cigar is far beyond any action President Trump has done in office. I guess you don't find that behavior ethically or morally lacking?

Your statement is inaccurate as any of the activities were between consenting adults of age. There was no sexual abuse.

The power dynamic between the President of the United States banging an intern is abusive behavior. That's why people in the business world get in trouble for this type of behavior where a boss bangs an underling... never mind an intern!
