I don’t particularly like that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders spends so little time taking questions. Many of her briefings last less than 20 minutes.
Now, it’s not clear to me that she provides much less information than other press secretaries, who meandered around saying nothing for 45 minutes. What’s more, President Trump himself has been far more available to reporters than some of his predecessors, taking questions before or after events and even while walking to his helicopter.
But Sanders should give the press more time, there’s no reason not to, and it addresses the fundamental right of the press to question the government. Yes, even if the press is biased against Republicans and Trump in particular, which of course it is. What’s more, it would give her more time to drill home her own message.
