Reuters Broadcasts Livestream of Sean Spicer’s House

Via Instapundit: Roughly two hours after White House press secretary Sean Spicer announced his resignation, Reuters disturbingly set up shop outside Spicer’s house and provided a livestream for viewers to follow along with.

It doesn’t take a whole lot of decency to conclude that this is a disgusting and tasteless display by an organization who’s White House correspondent (Jeff Mason) is the president of the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA). One has to wonder if Mason thinks this is good journalism.

As of 2:15 p.m. Eastern, there were zero signs of movement inside Spicer’s Virginia house. This being said, the debasing, paparazzi-like behavior by Reuters has actually given the American people a valuable takeaway, which is just now little the media take this seriously.

Ah, yes, but these are the same people who love to quote Joseph Welch.

"Have you no sense of decency, sir?"

Yeah well, let Trump and Spicer do something about it. I'm tired of getting upset on the BEHALF of other Republicans.

Its like when the Catholic Church gets attacked - or any other Christian church.

If they don't care, why should I?

Think of the news as a reality show. ("Reality" shows are not about reality but are scripted and curated and edited entertainment vehicles for agenda-driven (promotional, publicity) purposes.) There's nothing "newsworthy" about an ex-official's personal activity post-resignation unless he's evading a subpoena or the like. The only reason they're showing this is because their audience wants to gloat and spin fantasies about why poor derided Spicey departed the White House. Think of them all glued to their tvs watching this livestream. SAD!

This used to just crack me up, especially when someone particularly pompous like the Olberdouche would render it out, complete with shock 'n' awe facial expressions, quivering jowls of outrage, dramatic head shaking, etc.
It was never anything more than an act. Of projection.
