Trump official longs for a "complicit" media

White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said he thinks media coverage of President Donald Trump is biased, and said “it would be so nice if we had a complicit compliant media.”

Gidley spoke with Fox News’ Howard Kurtz on MediaBuzz Sunday, who was speaking with Gidley about the coverage of Trump’s meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“A majority of journalists … mischaracterize (Trump’s) demeanor and take whatever (Pelosi) says, lock, stock and barrel,” Gidley said.

It would be so nice if we had a complicit, compliant media the way the Democrats do, but we don’t … that’s why the president takes everything to the American people directly,” Gidley said.
