News outlets excluded from White House press secretary's gaggle

Multiple news outlets were excluded from a White House gaggle with press secretary Sean Spicer Friday afternoon, according to reporters present, sparking criticism from the White House Correspondents' Association and other observers. The move comes amid President Donald Trump's ongoing battle with many news organizations, which he has characterized as "fake news" and the "enemy of the American People," an assertion which he doubled down on today during the Conservative Political Action Conference. The gaggle, which took place in Spicer's office, was being held in lieu of a traditional briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room, which seats 49 reporters but is often filled with others who line the sides and back of the room. The outlets invited to join Spicer today included the Washington Times, One America News Network and Breitbart News, as well as television networks including ABC, CBS, Fox News and NBC, Reuters, the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, among others.

This revelation about one of the country?s most high-profile political couples came in one of the many uncomfortable, intimate moments featuring the pair in the new documentary ?Weiner.? The film, which documents Weiner?s ill-fated 2013 New York City mayoral campaign, also serves as a portrait of a family engulfed by scandal and the ravenous press coverage that comes with it. Abedin, a longtime aide to now-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, admitted in front of the documentary crew?s cameras that she and Weiner considered separating after his first fall from grace.
