Breaking tradition, Sean Spicer gave the first questions to conservative-leaning media outlets, and not the Associated Press as was custom. This from the Free Beacon :
Sean Spicer on Monday gave his first three questions as White House press secretary under President Donald Trump to conservative-leaning journalists.
The first question went to the New York Post’s Daniel Halper, who is the author of Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine . The next two went to the Christian Broadcasting Network.
