Sean Spicer Says Journalists Will Have 'Skype Seats'

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held his first official White House press briefing on Monday.

Spicer defended Trump's inauguration attendance numbers after multiple media outlets compared Obama's attendance numbers in 2009 to Trump's numbers from Friday, saying Trump's were lower. Spicer said it was the largest watched inauguration ever if you add up the number of streaming viewers.
 

He told reporters it will never be his intention to lie to the press. 

He also announced the White House will create four "Skype seats" for reporters who aren't in the Washington area. He said the "Skype seats" will open the field to a diverse group of journalists.
