CNN’s Stelter, RNC Spox Clash Over Whether There’s Media-DNC ‘Collusion’
CNN’s Brian Stelter faced off with RNC spokesman Sean Spicer today over his and Donald Trump‘s complaints about the biased media.
Stetlter first spoke with him Spicer about the polls and got Spicer to acknowledge that they have a narrower path to 270 electoral votes than Hillary Clinton does. Spicer, however, expressed his confidence in the GOP’s ability to make strong gains this year.
And then on the subject of the media, Spicer said the level of bias is “appalling.” He pointed to reporters on Twitter and said, “They have become unbelievable activists against Trump. They may not like him, but the degree to which they’re helping Hillary is unbelievable. Look at the Twitter feeds of most of these journalists.”
He brought up some WikiLeaks emails showing collusion, at worst, or at the very least some impropriety between members of the press and Democrats.
Stelter pointed out that lots of Republican flaks get friendly emails too. Spicer responded, “There’s a differnce between being friendly and collusion.”
Stelter suggested that critics are just “picking and choosing” examples to claim a conspiracy.
