Sean Spicer slams media over inauguration crowd coverage

Oh, that freakin' liberal media!

Source: CBS News

*****

Of crowd size estimates, Spicer said “no one had numbers...because the National Park Service” does not put any out.”

Despite the lack of numbers just cited, Spicer went on to assert “this was the largest audience to ever witness the inauguration period both in person and around the globe.”

Speaking to CBSN after Spicer’s statement, CBS senior White House correspondent Major Garrett said: “It is quite clear that this administration will make whatever representations it wants to on its impression and interpretation of the news and drive that right back at the news media if it thinks it is being unfair or inflicting damage on the image this White House wants to display.”

“I’ve never seen anything like this where it was so intense, so harsh and passionate right off the beginning,” said Garrett, “So much of it was about what the media got wrong from the interpretation of this White House and a declaration that this antagonism is going to continue because this president feels duty-bound, on behalf of this movement that Sean Spicer spoke about, to speak beyond the media and criticize it whenever he is justified in doing so.”

About 30.6 million people watched the inauguration, according to the Nielsen ratings, a smaller number than the 38 million who watched Obama’s first inauguration in 2009.

2. I'm sure Kellyanne will hit the shows tomorrow to tell us all we didn't see what we all saw

Spicer had the gall to say it was the biggest crowd in history.
Nazi Germany is upon us.

11. Another little test for the popular media

I suspect you are correct. Will the "reporters" have the nerve to say she's lying? Or will they just nod sagely and conclude that reasonable people can disagree?

3. So this is how the White House will spend its time?

Marching the bastard Sean Spicer into the Press Room to berate and belittle the Press? To what end? To stroke the tiny fragile ego of the big fat Baby in Chief? Just more "Lies and the lying liars who tell them."

Fuck That.

7. Heard a woman on the C-SPAN Republican line say...

"...all these protesters should be arrested. I know in my heart he is a good man!"

Now I know where the idea of gulags and re-education camps came from. You really can't fix stupid.
