Remember The CNN Analyst Who was Rude To Sanders? Well…
The Whitehouse Press Briefings are not one on one, it is a decent sized gathering of journalist that are trying to get information about a new policy or current events. Questions have to be asked one at a time or you have chaos, and no one will find out anything. Brian Karem apparently felt he was above respecting his colleagues and Sarah Sanders for that matter. He was rude and abrasive when he refused to wait his turn, shouting over Sanders. He got his point across and maybe that’s what it was, a publicity stunt. But now he won’t even acknowledge he is in the wrong.
On a Panel on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Karem was given the chance to apologize for his rude behavior. But that would have required common courtesy. So he instead decided to bash the Trump Administration and apologized to those less fortunate about the current policy.
The Host Brian Stelter brought up his conduct.
Stelter: “Well, Brian this brings us to your outburst at Thursday’s briefing. I don’t know if you would call it an outburst but I would… Do you regret losing your cool Brian?”
Karem: “I have an apology to make. I apologize to every human being who has had to suffer…who has less than I do, and I did not come to the table sooner. I’m sorry to those people for waiting so long, and holding my temper. I’m sorry that I am extremely angry with this administration that has lied to me, continues to lie to me. I’m sorry as a reporter that for so long I thought that the idea was to … I was struggling so hard to do my job I forgot that my job is to comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable, and ask questions for those who have no voice.”
Stelter: “I respect what you are saying…, but you came across as a caricature for many people that are watching who feel journalist are trying to make it all about themselves, trying to get on TV more often, trying to get more attention.”
Karem: “Well that’s the pushback from the administration, of course, and as I said to Sarah it’s not about me.”
Stelter: “You don’t think that’s legitimate at all?”
Karem: “No, I don’t. It’s not legitimate. At some point in time, we’ve been playing by the old rules for so long that we forgot where we are with this administration. For a fact it was Sarah Huckabee Sanders who brought her family into that pressroom. She has beat us over the head with it. We have been berated, we’ve been lied to, we have been called the enemy of the people, we have been insulted, we have been told that we have less credibility than the President of the United States. We have been lectured at.
That office used to be an office of information. It is now an office of disinformation. It is an office of propaganda and I think we should push back harder. I have heard from numerous people. I think think the vast majority of Americans are as inflamed by this issue as any other that has come down the pipe. It is a basic question of humanity that must be addressed.”
Watch The Video Below.
This is why he needs his Press Pass revoked. He is pretty blatant about how he feels about his conduct. If he can’t abide by the rules then there is no reason for his continued admission to those briefings. He is allowed to ask whatever he wants, it is just a matter of waiting his turn. A lesson which most of us learn as toddlers.
