Fox News reporter walks out on off-camera briefing, sasses Sarah Huckabee Sanders

"I don't see any announcements then, no", Spicer said. "We missed you, Sean", said another.

Washington press corps was a'twitter Wednesday afternoon with word one fearless White House correspondent had dared to stream live the audio of the day's no-cameras-allowed White House press briefing held by Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"Is Spicer still press secretary?" The White House correspondents and News executives are yet to identify a strategy to change things going on.

That is in violation of White House rules that only allow audio of the briefing to be used after the event has wrapped, on the thinking that messing with rabbit-like reporters is a awful thing to waste.

The appearance of Spicer - remotely, from the White House lawn - underscores the Christian network's access to the Trump administration.

While Earnest worked on Obama's presidential campaign for two years before joining him in the White House, he said Spicer has not had that opportunity to mind-meld with the president.

Following a contentious few months between reporters and press secretary Sean Spicer, on-camera briefings have become rare, replaced by off-cameras or even smaller press gaggles.

The audio of at least one early off-camera briefing aired live on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, but that appeared to be a result of ambiguous guidance from the White House, which insists that recordings air only on delay. The last on-camera White House briefing was on June 29. When Sanders noticed, she joked, "John Roberts is bored today; he's stepping out".
