In an interview on CNN’s Saturday broadcast of “Smerconish,” Republican National Committee chief strategist Sean Spicer discussed the current state of the media, in particular the topic of the media’s coverage of the 2016 Republican presidential primary contest.

Although Spicer was reluctant to discuss specific presidential candidates, he pointed out that some media outlets are faring better than others because they cover stories other so-called mainstream outlets have neglected.

“Just as side note, the reason that Fox News is so successful is because they are covering stories, talking to people that the mainstream media ignore,” Spicer said. “And I think the American people — why they’re drawn to Fox is because of that. No one is suggesting that be Fox only, but I think it would behoove many members of the media to understand that part of the reason that Fox, and places like Breitbart and The Daily Caller and others, have grown to be successful is because the mainstream media frankly is not understanding what a lot of Americans are actually dealing with, people who they respect, issues that they want covered.”
