The White House today said certain media outlets have gone out of their way to do inaccurate and unfair reporting. “I think the President’s been very clear that certain outlets have gone out of their way to not represent his record accurately and it is a concern to him. He has deep respect for the first amendment, for the role of the press — I’ve addressed this multiple times in the past,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters at his daily news conference.

“He (Trump) has a healthy respect for the press. But I think it’s a two way street, as I’ve also said before, and I think that the President understands that certain outlets have gone out of their way to not be completely accurate and fair in their coverage of what’s going on,” Spicer said in response to a question.

Spicer said that several times the media jumps to the conclusion. In fact, he follows every procedure that’s laid out. “In some cases it’s disheartening to realise that those are the kind of immediate conclusions that somebody jumps to. So when you talk about coverage, we have a free press, we have the right for our people to say and do what they believe,” Spicer said in response to a question. “It is incumbent upon people to try to get it right,” he said noting that in many cases press jumps to conclusion.
