After Acosta refused to stop badgering Spicer over why the cameras were shut off in a room that is basically equipped and lit to serve as a television studio, OAN reporter Trey Yingst asked Spicer to just answer the damn question.
"Something tells me that won't be the last member of the Trump administration we see in a courtroom sketch", quipped Colbert. "We'll continue to mix things up". Acosta demanded. He received no answer from the press secretary. "And so we look forward to hearing what they have on their minds and figuring out what we can do to finally replace and repeal Obamacare".
In a statement on Tuesday, the progressive watchdog group Common Cause estimated that "there have been only five on-camera briefings by White House press officials during the entire month of June".
This is not the first time that Mr Acosta has criticised Mr Spicer's decision to run the briefings off-camera.
CNN'sJim Acosta pressed White House spokesman Sean Spicer to allow cameras to be turned on during Monday's press briefing, as the Trump team increasingly has restricted the type of coverage of what has been a routine ritual for reporters on the beat. The White House has appeared to adopt a communications strategy of dealing primarily with its base of supporters, as witnessed by Trump's two interviews in the past week with Fox News Channel's morning show, "Fox & Friends".

"Sarah Huckabee Sanders was just a bit more honest apparently about that White House dishonesty", Todd said in response. "Talk to the camera and that voter in MI, talk to them directly".
The pair made that case in a column they co-authored for the Columbia Journalism Review in early January, before Trump even took office. They have a significant stake in getting the briefings back on TV.
"Trump is a reality star, so we can't be a serious, behind the scenes presidency", the source said. "I don't know what they're thinking".
