NEWT GINGRICH: I’m probably tougher or more decisive than many of the president’s advisors but I think there is a hostility standard that they should establish and simply kick people out. The White House does not have to accept idiotically hostile people in the press corps.  

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Mr. Speaker, there’d be nobody, there’d be nobody in the room. They’re all hostile.

GINGRICH: But maybe, maybe [INAUDIBLE] but what they could do, they could put all their pictures up and have a little website and everybody in America could vote and the people who are voted the most hostile, the 30 percent that are most hostile get kicked off this month.
