Katy Tur Snarks At Spicer’s Dig Towards NBC: ‘It’s Called Journalism’

NBC’s Katy Tur targeted Sean Spicer with some condescending snark immediately after the White House Press Secretary concluded his press briefing on Monday.

During the briefing, Spicer had contentious exchanges with two of Tur’s colleagues, Peter Alexander and Hallie Jackson. Spicer led his answer to Jackson’s second question by quipping, “Hold on, Hallie! You guys have an NBC thing.”

Tur rose to her fellow NBC journalists’ defense: “Sean Spicer taking a lot of tough questions from reporters there in the briefing room, telling our own NBC reporters that ‘you guys have an NBC thing.’ Yes, we do. It’s called journalism.”

Spicer might have a point about an “NBC thing,” as the network spent 34 minutes and 42 seconds of air time on its morning and evening newscasts to President Donald Trump‘s wiretapping tweet between March 4 and March 6, according to a study by the conservative Media Research Center.
