White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasts media for reporting truth about lack of inauguration audience.
In his first appearance as White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer made a statement to the press:
“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period,” Spicer said, contradicting all available data.”

Spicer went on to further lecture the media about what they should be covering. Read more from CNN Money here.
It seems the new White House shall continue its war with the press. Now it’s directing the press what it should cover. If it’s not satisfied with the coverage, Sean Spicer is sent out to attack the media and no questions are allowed from the press. Is this really freedom of the press under the Constitution?
