Emmanuel Macron: My thoughts are ‘too complex’ for journalists

My thoughts are ‘too complex’ for journalists, says Emmanuel Macron:

Emmanuel Macron has sparked anger and mockery for dispensing with the French president’s traditional Bastille Day television interview because his thoughts are “too complex” for such a forum.

An Elysée official told Le Monde newspaper that the 39-year-old centrist leader’s “complex thought process lends itself badly to the game of question-and-answer with journalists” that is held every year on the July 14 national holiday.

In Blistering Interview, Conway Tells Chuck Todd “We Are Going To Have To Rethink Our Relationship With The Press” (Video)

In Blistering Interview, Conway Tells Chuck Todd “We Are Going To Have To Rethink Our Relationship With The Press”:

To members of the mainstream media, it would appears ‘size matters’, as the Inauguration crowd-gate debacle continues following Sean Spicer’s unusual press conference yesterday. During a combative interview this morning with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Trump top advisor Kellyanne Conway blasted media “falsehoods,” crushing Todd’s ‘size’ issues by noting that “Presidents aren’t judged by crowd sizes at their inauguration, they’re judged by their accomplishments.”

Trump Team Responds: May Move White House Briefings To Accommodate More Than Just “Media Elite”

Trump Team Responds: May Move White House Briefings To Accommodate More Than Just “Media Elite”:

The overnight report by Esquire magazine that the incoming Trump administration is “seriously considering” a plan to evict the press corps from the White House prompted a frenzied response by the White House Correspondents Association, and led to a scramble among Washington’s press elite to demand if this report was accurate. As it turns out, Trump’s intentions may be just the opposite of what was reported, because according statements by Priebus, Pence and Spicer, the incoming Trump administration is actually considering expanding the number of journalists who have access to Trump, not limiting it.

As a result, the Trump admin is now considering moving White House press briefings out of the West Wing to accommodate more than the “Washington media elite,” incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said on Sunday, cited by Bloomberg.
