Fleischer, responding to “in the minority”, said his top piece of advice for Grisham would return to the briefing, but in a different format.

“The briefing, it should not be a red-hot-TV-show briefing a briefing should be. In this way, you can open the task with a little more rapport with the reporters,” he said, adding that many of the print-would welcome a Reporter, away from the cameras.

Fleischer, Fox News contributor, served as White House press secretary under George W. Bush, laments that some reporters have instructed in a “game of gotcha.” He said in front of the camera briefings were routine, as recently as the Clinton administration.

“The briefing has show to a TV. It is no longer a serious discussion. It is the game of gotcha, everyone knows it and that is why people will see it. It is not meant to be seen, it is designed to fill the press and answer the press’ questions,” he argued.
