Breitbart landed the first interview with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer after last night’s immigration ban court ruling, and it’s the most awkward broadcast since Brian Collins dropped his “and boom goes the dynamite” line in 2005.
The two-minute clip was nabbed by Gizmodo politics reporter Ashley Feinberg, and thank the world for that. Everyone needs to see it.
From the poorly framed close-ups and weird wide-angle group shot to both Spicer and the reporter’s tepid enthusiasm, it is something else.
Call me wrong, but if you nab the first interview with the most visible person in a presidential administration after a historic court ruling, you should spend more than 45 seconds in your production meeting planning it out.
