NYT Reporter Says Press Conferences Are More ‘Democratic’ Under Trump Than Obama (The Washington Free Beacon)
New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush praised President Donald Trump for his press conferences and outreach to journalists during a panel discussion with two other reporters on Monday.
Thrush, who formerly reported for Politico, was joined by CNN's Jim Acosta and the Washington Post‘s Ashley Parker for the panel event, titled "A Front Row Seat to Spin."
"I do want to give Trump credit on things, " Thrush said. "I think one of the things that I think he's doing better than Barack Obama are these press conferences and his outreach to individual reporters, even for organizations like my own that he criticizes."
