According to sources, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is being blackballed by news networks for refusing to denounce President Trump. Sources claim Spicer’s reps were asked if the former Trump spokesman would be “willing to become a critic of the president.”
The big five news organizations have passed on offering former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer a job as an exclusive paid contributor, network sources confirmed to NBC News on Tuesday.
“Since Spicer exited the White House, his representatives have been holding individual conversations about the possibility of President Donald Trump’s former flack joining one of the major TV networks, which include CBS News, CNN, Fox News, ABC News and NBC News.”
But “they won’t touch him,” said a media industry executive familiar with those conversations.
The Blue Check Mafia is excusing the blackballing based on Spicer’s “lack of credibility.” Meanwhile, many of Obama’s former flacks, who lied about the Benghazi Video, the Iran Deal, and Obamacare (among other falsehoods), are employed.
