Everything is going great!
Executives and anchors from the country's five biggest television networks are meeting with President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower on Monday afternoon.Cool. I'm sure they won't be discussing anything we'd want or need to know about. Transparency is for losers who don't reflexively trust people with power to always do the right thing!
The meeting was organized by Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, who is now a senior adviser to Trump.
NBC's Chuck Todd and Lester Holt; CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Erin Burnett; CBS's Norah O'Donnell, Charlie Rose, John Dickerson, and Gayle King; and ABC's George Stephanopoulos were some of the anchors who were seen entering Trump Tower shortly before 1 p.m.
A source said ABC's David Muir and Martha Raddatz were expected to attend.
Sources said the meeting would involve Trump, Conway and representatives from ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and Fox News. (NBC's cable news channel MSNBC is included in the NBC invitation, Conway noted.)
The substance of the meeting is intended to be off the record, meaning the participants will not divulge what is said.
In other news that's totes not related: "Over the weekend, there were a flurry of stories about how Donald Trump and his family are already using the presidency to leverage his overseas businesses as well as his new DC hotel. Well, now there's more. This time in Argentina. ...According to a report out of Argentina, when Argentine President Mauricio Macri called President-Elect Trump to congratulate him on his election, Trump asked Macri to deal with the permitting issues that are currently holding up the project."
Don't worry. Trump and Marci say it never happened. Good to know! Therefore, there's definitely no reason to be concerned that "no one knew anything about the visit from Trump's Indian business partners until it appeared in the Indian press either. It seems like this is likely happening on many fronts. It's just being hidden from the American press. We only hear about it when it bubbles to the surface in the countries where Trump is pushing his business deals."
Obviously, there's nothing to even know! Secrecy is fine. They'll let us know if there's anything about which to worry.
