(Think Progress) -- Press Secretary Sean Spicer is sending a message to the traditional media with his first calls at White House press conferences.
On Monday, the first question went to the New York Post, a conservative-leaning outlet, instead of the traditional choice, the Associated Press. On Tuesday, the first question went to LifeZette — a website founded and headed by conservative pundit and Trump cheerleader Laura Ingraham.

LifeZette was founded in 2015, and throughout the 2016 campaign was an avid participant in the phenomenon now dubbed “fake news,” trafficking in conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton.
