It’s bad enough when the President of the United States refers to your publication as “the failing New York Times.” But when your White House correspondent is made to look the fool in front of the entire nation, that’s something else entirely.

Case in point: While conducting his daily press briefing, White House Press Secretary and Communications Director Sean Spicer gave quite the etiquette lesson to Times reporter Glenn Thrush.

As reported by The Washington Examiner;

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday chided a reporter for trying to ask a question without being called on first by saying: “We’re going to raise our hands like big boys and girls.”

Spicer had called on another reporter to ask a question when Glenn Thrush, a reporter with the New York Times, also tried to jumped in to ask a question of his own.

Thrush is the reporter who “Saturday Night Live” has portrayed in skits being berated by a fictional Spicer.

“Glen. This isn’t a TV program,” Spicer said Thursday. “You don’t get to just yell out questions.”

As it turns out, the White House’s James S. Brady Press Briefing Room isn’t the only place where the failing New York Times is the recipient of the proverbial back of the hand.

In an interview with a Middle East-based news agency, the executive editor for the New York Times described the Obama Administrative as “the most secretive” she’s encountered in over two decades worth of her being in the newspaper business, as reported by the right-of-center news portal News Busters on Jan. 23, 2014.
