Former White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer is having trouble securing a job as a TV news pundit after working for Donald Trump. An Article in Buzzfeed News by Steven Perlberg is claiming that an interview with Sean Hannity on FOX News is partially to blame. Perlberg claims in the article that Spicer met with all three major networks, CBS News, ABC News, and NBC News and none want to work with him. CNN has also said they have no interest in hiring him.
Spicer's decision to do his first interview, on the evening it was announced he was leaving the White House, with Hannity didn't do him any favors. In the interview Spicer spent a good deal of time essentially trashing all the other networks by saying,
“I do think that the majority of folks now in the briefing room, that are going into journalism — they’re not there for the facts and the pursuit of the truth.”
It would seem that Fox News may have been the place Spicer landed but the network also turned him down. Perlberg writes:
“When it came time to make a decision after the meeting with Spicer, Fox News programming executives didn’t think he would add much to its current deep bench of former Republican officials, like Dana Perino and Rove, sources said. There were also whispers that Spicer’s enemies might have disparaged him to Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch."
Twitter wasn't feeling a whole lot of sympathy for the man they feel spent a great deal of time lying to the American people on behalf of Trump.
It's a shame Sean Spicer can't find a media job. It's almost as if he spent the last year insulting and berating the media.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) November 18, 2017
Maybe there are other Dictators out there looking for a Press Secretary who is good at lying?— Mikael Waernlund (@Wenmigao) November 18, 2017
Spicer's not just a liar, but a particularly ineffectual, mediocre liar. Nervous, inarticulate, ill-prepared for the tough questions and unable to think on his feet. Does not give the impression that he's bright or well-informed or well-read. Hope he ends up a footnote to 2016/17— Anne Kiefer (@anmalaki) November 18, 2017
Spicer told a bald faced lie that the entire globe knew was a lie on DAY ONE. He degraded our democracy in a multitude of ways.— NYC ghost🗽 (@NYCdisinterest) November 18, 2017
He should forever be ostracized.
Sean Spicer used the people's podium to lie to our faces from day 1. So I could care less about his career. Bye Felicia 🖐🖐🖐— Sharmon Monagan (@drsmonagan) November 18, 2017
