Electronic Printer’s Ink

Without a doubt, the Press Gaggle is more and more immature in their shouting questions at the president, but since the president answers some questions, the rudeness continues.

But each the president seems to learn how to turn press competition into one cohesive unit…try to ban a CNN reporter. Obama learned by banning a FOX reporter, and Trump found out yesterday.

The new White House Communications Director, a former FOX executive, tried to dance around the case by saying the president never used the word “ban” but the dance won’t work. It is a semantic argument with people who make their living in words.

The old saw, “Never pick an argument with anyone who buys printer’s ink by the barrel,” is true in an era where there is an electronic equivalent.

Reporters have long memories.
