As Twitchy reported Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis held a press conference “Exposing the Book Banning Hoax” and played the press like fiddles by showing graphic images from books in school libraries — the press obviously had to cut away because broadcast standards wouldn’t allow them to show the material on air.
DeSantis has the best communications team, and press secretary Bryan Griffin had a great response to a TV reporter covering a rally discussing the book bannings in Florida.
This is amazing. https://t.co/FgdNhTvp0m

Here’s the exchange:
Whenever a journalist says “critics say,” it just means it’s their opinion not backed up by any sources.
“Great news for them”

Media going to lose their minds and I'm here for it.

Amazing the amount of absurd messages you get from so called ‘journalists’ on a daily basis. 🤦🏼♂️
You have to have so much patience to deal with their crazy questions.

Ashley’s line of questioning is akin to asking a guy “when was the last time you beat your wife?”

When conservatives know the game they're playing, they tend to do better.

The corporate news is a huge disservice to this country

Outstanding response. Oh, perhaps the reporter should do a bit of background before sending ignorant messages.

While I love @ChristinaPushaw, you are rapidly gaining on her as one of my favorite press sectaries/comms people of all time. Good job.

These "reporters" sound like teenagers. Good answer.

Real journalism is dead.

It’s not about the books. It’s about being anti-DeSantis.

Exactly. Why do people so desperately want sexually explicit books in school libraries anyway? And did Channel 9 air the images from “Gender Queer” in their news report?
