Bryan Griffin credits Vanity Fair for getting 'one part right' about Team DeSantis' media strategy

Vanity Fair’s got a new piece out all about the media’s ongoing struggle to penetrate Ron DeSantis’ orbit:



It can be particularly challenging to report inside DeSantis’s orbit, which makes the jockeying by news organizations all the more competitive. For one, it’s hard to source up inside an operation that appears inherently distrustful of journalists. “It’s almost like they’re running a straight-up opposition campaign against the media,” a political reporter at a major news outlet said of DeSantis’s press strategy. (For a Vanity Fair story earlier this month on DeSantis’s media strategy, a spokesperson referenced recent pieces on DeSantis’s right-wing, culture-war crusade in accusing this magazine of “dressing up wild leftist talking points as truthful analysis and reporting.”)

Despite the fact that Trump has bashed the media for years, he—and others in his orbit—seemed to have reporters on speed dial during his chaotic presidency. DeSantis’s guardedness with the press, another political reporter said, has been “a little bit of a culture shock” for reporters who got used to “swimming in leaks” during the Trump years. “We all took advantage of the knife fighting over at the White House—that’s how everyone got their leaks,” they said.

“DeSantisworld doesn’t leak because DeSantisworld basically doesn’t really exist,” a political reporter familiar with Florida politics and DeSantis’s operation told me. “It’s like four, five people who know what’s going on. That’s going to change as he starts to build out the organization.” (DeSantis is known to keep a tight circle, with his wife, Casey, considered his “closest confidant and adviser.”) “It’s one guy who doesn’t have much of a crew around him, and part of his secret sauce is to poke a thumb in the eye of the media,” the reporter added, suggesting news outlets are going to “need someone who is able to talk the language of Republicans to deal with them.”


Tough break, Vanity Fair. Hey, Team DeSantis, if you’re listening … can you throw them a bone? DeSantis press secretary Bryan Griffin, do you have anything you can give them, just to make them feel special?

Or maybe you can just mock the hell out of them:

It’s almost exactly like that!

They have confirmed. On several occasions.

And yet the media have continued to learn absolutely zero lessons from any of it.


At this point, there’s really only one comment to give the MSM when they come banging on Ron DeSantis’ door:



Ron DeSantis’ campaign responds to The View’s gracious invite with a gracious mic drop

Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary gives Yahoo News a quote for their ‘Don’t Say Gay’ story
