Last quote by Jeff Mason

We have urged the White House not to replace on-camera briefings with 'gaggles,' not-for-broadcast question-and-answer sessions. Though they are useful and can play an important role in informing the press and the public, gaggles are not a substitute for the open back-and-forth between reporters and administration officials that regular televised briefings allow. Sean and Sarah agreed to consider these positions.feedback
