White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer pissed off journalists again today, this time by opening the first question at todays's press briefing to LifeZette.

Haven't heard of them?

They're a known propaganda site.

Laura Ingraham, the conservative radio host who created LifeZette, was actually being considered to be Trump's press secretary. If Jeff Foxworthy were to make a joke about this he would say, "If you almost got the job of the person you were trying to hold accountable, that miiiiiight be a conflict of interest."

Moreover, LifeZette has never been a reputable news site. They have been known to make up stories, like the Clinton murder conspiracy theory, and when they do cover legitimate stories, their take is noticeably slanted.

Here are three examples:

1. The "alternative facts" story:

So, yeah, when the White House gives a site like LifeZette first question, it raises serious doubts that they want any information to get out at all.
