The next time a journalist bitches about Sean Spicer not appearing on camera, show them this chart from Media Matters

White House press secretary Sean Spicer did yesterday’s press gaggle off camera, which had all of the usual suspects up in arms. Some quick examples…

Well, let’s compare the amount of coverage Sean Spicer gets to that of Josh Earnest in the Obama administration, shall we? Here’s the hand chart from Media Matters of all places that shows just how much more coverage Spicer and the Trump White House is getting than Obama:

The next time a journalist bitches about Sean Spicer not appearing on camera, just show them this chart. It’s the cable news channels that have weaponized the briefing, not the administration.

More from the study:

  • The three main cable news networks have obsessively covered the Spicer briefings. CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC each aired at least 93 percent of Spicer’s briefing time, compared to only 2 percent of Earnest’s.
  • Spicer’s briefings were significantly shorter than Earnest’s — 42% shorter. Spicer’s briefings averaged 45 minutes compared to Earnest’s, which averaged 1 hour and 18 minutes.
  • Spicer’s top five, most-called-on reporters were all from conservative-leaning outlets. Five of Spicer’s 10 most-called-on news organizations were conservative-leaning.

And the top network to ask questions of Spicer? It’s not Fox News (although more conservative outlets are being called on, which is a good thing):

According to the schedule, Spicer won’t give any briefing today. Cable news channels hardest hit:
