Sean Spicer labels March For Life Participants ‘Demonstrators’
Because the annual March For Life will get underway in Washington, DC, it wasn’t lengthy earlier than White Home Press Secretary Sean Spicer took to Twitter to complain about how CNN is protecting the occasion:
1000s gathered in DC to face up for all times & adoption and @CNN refers to them as “demonstrators” #MarchForLife pic.twitter.com/hMiu47itBp

On the floor, it’s probably not clear what Spicer’s criticism is. Does he assume that “demonstrator” is extra loaded than, say, “marcher,” “protester,” and so forth? Strictly by the dictionary definitions, at the least, it’s not. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes was equally confused:
@seanspicer @CNN what ought to they name them?

Elizabeth Bruenig of the Washington Put up subsequently identified that no matter Spicer was making an attempt to say, it didn’t mesh with how the March For Life’s personal web site describes itself as a “demonstration” (over 100 instances, at that) and CNN’s public relations account tweeted the identical factor shortly thereafter:
@seanspicer CNN referred to #MarchforLife demonstrators the identical means they seek advice from themselves. These are the details. pic.twitter.com/p91HadkWod

For the document, based on a search of the closed captioning information archived by TV Eyes, CNN did seek advice from these at The Girls’s March on Saturday as “demonstrators” a number of instances.
