The press secretary interacts with the media, and deals with the White House press corps on a daily basis, generally in a daily press briefing.

The press secretary serves by the appointment of and at the pleasure of the president; the office does not require the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate, though because of the frequent briefings given to the media, who in turn inform the public, the position is still a very prominent non-Cabinet post.

Advice and consent is an English phrase frequently used in enacting formulae of bills and in other legal or constitutional contexts.
