Trump better with press than Obama, mainstream reporter says

Compared to former President Obama, Trump is better at giving news conferences and reaching out to individual reporters, the Times’ Glenn Thrush said.

“I do want to give Trump credit on things,” Thrush stated during a media panel discussion on Monday. “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.”

“…When Obama had press conferences, he had a single piece of white paper and he had six or seven organizations that he had preselected to call upon, and a lot of them were pretty favorable to him, too.”

Thrust added that Trump was more “democratic” in comparison by taking questions from a variety of reporters without pre-selecting them, including those from outlets who routinely attack him.

As I reported in 2014, journalists routinely criticized the Obama administration for what they characterized as the worst press access they’ve experiences in decades.

“Once we lose access, we’ll never get it back,” the Associated Press’s chief White House photographer, Charles Dharapak, warned colleagues during a 2014 Newspaper Association of America conference.

And the Poynter Institute’s Kenny Irby said Obama’s chief photographer Pete Souza was more of a propagandist than a real photojournalist because his job was to make Obama “look good, make the president look presidential.”

And Souza enjoyed access to the president mainstream photojournalists didn’t have until Trump took office.

To sum it up, the mainstream media is like a beaten lover who keeps coming back to an abusive relationship: they fawn over Obama despite his war against press freedom while simultaneously attacking Trump despite his clear generosity to the press.
