The latest White House strategy: confuse the media

CNN's Dylan Byers has the latest on how the White House comms team is gaining widespread criticism. "The White House is facing daily criticism from the news media over its decision to reduce the frequency of press briefings and hold some of those briefings off camera," he writes.

"[T]he White House press office has opted for an ad-hoc strategy intended to ... make [the media] look ridiculous. It will go several days without a briefing; then, when media frustration over the lack of access reaches a fever pitch, it will hold a conventional briefing. The next day, it may hold the briefing off camera, starting the process over again."
