White House discussing moving Spicer to senior communications role

CNN Reporter: White House Doesn't Want Its 'Evasive Answers' On Tape Angry White House Reporters Blast 'Useless' Sean Spicer (Video)

But during the Obama administration, as this tradition was dying a quick death, the White House only held seven pen and pad briefings, and none were with the press secretary alone.

A White House spokesperson did not return a question about why today's briefing was off-camera, or whether future briefings will be off-camera.

But Spicer didn't have many answers, saying it was "possible" information about the would-be tapes was coming soon and that he hadn't talked to the president about climate change. He also said that there may be an answer "by the end of this week" as to whether Trump has recordings of his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey.

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary Americans love to hate, held a press briefing on Monday.

"I don't know why everybody is going along with this", he added.

"There are days that I'll decide that the president's voice should be the one that speaks and iterate his priorities", Spicer added. "It feels like we're sort of slowly but but surely being dragged into what is a new normal in this country".

The once-rare off-camera briefing has become a regular thing in recent months, but late last month, the White House Correspondents' Association had to negotiate in order to be allowed to use audio of a briefing. Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who has frequently filled in for Spicer, has told people that she doesn't want the job of press secretary, according to a source close to her. Some networks, like CNN, MSNBC, and C-SPAN, have instead carried the audio of the briefings live.

For a bit of context, there is a dying journalistic tradition called the "pen and pad briefing", which many old-school reporters prefer for a variety of reasons.

"I don't understand why we covered that gaggle today, quite honestly, Brooke", Acosta said.

"They bring us into the briefing room here at the White House and they wont answer these questions on camera, or let us record the audio".
