Sean Spicer: Stop hiding your Press Briefing

This petition had 8,820 supporters

Once again, the Trump Administration has gone into unprecedented territory by not allowing the media to cover the press briefings adequately. Sean Spicer has consistently banned the media from recording the briefings, and in some cases have even restricted the release of audio until after the briefing.

As citizens, who elect our officials, we have a right to watch and hear our Press Secretary, spokesman for the President, answer questions that are brought forth by the media. This restriction affects ALL Americans in receiving the words of the administration fairly. Without this access, we are moving towards an authoritarian state, which is not what the United States of America stands for. At today's briefing (6/23/17) cameras again were restricted, and CNN sent sketch artist Bill Hennessy to the briefing to document it. (One sketch is shown above in our header photo). THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.

The Trump Administration attacks the media as spinning their words, but what better way is there to get your message out to the public, directly from you. Join me in calling on Sean Spicer and the Trump Administration to pledge to the American people that no more games will be played with our Constitution and that ALL future official press briefings will be held on-camera, with audio, with unrestricted access to the people. 

Let's send a message that we won't stand for this blatant disregard to Democratic norms.
