News, not gossip

News outlets and media professionals who speculate that pieces of paper held by the president in front of crowds are a breach of confidential protocol deserve to be banned from White House press briefings for their lack of professionalism.

I have heard for a month White House press secretary Sean Spicer having to explain principles of common-sense priorities as though he is addressing to a bunch of schoolkids; he has exhibited great patience and restraint.

Gossip, innuendo and speculation are not journalism. Those who think they are, should be omitted from all future White House press conferences.
