Per orders of the Trump administration, Cameras remained off Monday at the White House press briefing. This sidelined one of daytime television's most popular features. The last on-camera White House briefing was June 29. news networks began airing press secretary Sean Spicer's question-and-answer session only after it was over. the still pictures of Spicer as he spoke off-camera didn't make for exciting television. both Fox News Channel and MSNBC moved on to other stories before the session was completed.
