White House senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer on media 'revolution'

Senior advisor to the president Dan Pfeiffer speaks with Brian Stelter about a revolution "in the distribution and consumption of information."

See more of the interview on "Reliable Sources," Sunday at 11 a.m. Eastern time on CNN.

"We're on the cusp of a massively disruptive revolution" in the media, said Pfeiffer, who was previously the White House communications director.
 
"It is a revolution in the distribution and consumption of information. And there are big things that are going to happen. The old models are starting to fall. And how we adjust to them, and how everyone adjusts to them - you know, entertainment television, the movies, the news, politicians and the government trying to get their message out - is going to be a massively fascinating thing."
 
Pfeiffer added that he thinks these changes are "even more interesting and potentially consequential than the invention of television and the invention of the Internet, because it's all those things combined at the same time."

Responding to speculation that he may step down soon, Pfeiffer said he hasn't made a decision.

"I think you take this every day as it comes," he said, "and as long as it feels good and you're enjoying it, you keep doing it."
