This guy gets it. His successor does not. Listen to how Obama conducted his final press conference at The White House -- full of respect for the people in the room and understanding that those same people may on some days report negatively about himself and his administration. And that's ok! That's the way it should be! Accountability from the press so that an administration doesn't run havoc on the country and its citizens.
Put this in contrast with current Press Secretary Sean Spicer who basically tried to pull a fast one on a room full of press that is growing increasingly tired of Trump's bullshit and misdirection. There's no respect from Spicer at all for these people doing their best to do their job in a hostile environment.
