What Is Trump Administration's Media-Relations Strategy?

Sean Spicer was the target of a brutal impersonation by Melissa McCarthy on "Saturday Night Live" before leaving the job of White House Press secretary.

Anthony Scaramucci lasted less than a week as communications director — and part of that time was spent giving an expletive-filled interview to The New Yorker.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
