With the White House limiting some on-camera and live briefings, CNN is using the abilities of a sketch artist to document the scene.

The cable news network had Bill Hennessy, who typically documents Supreme Court proceedings, sketch the scene Friday afternoon.

CNN defended its position having Hennessy attend the meeting amid some criticism stating it "did serve a journalistic purpose, in the same way that courtroom sketches do."
