As you might guess, the mainstream media are outraged over President Trump’s actions in barring them from the daily White House briefing.
The truth is that there are only so many spaces in the press room and so why not save those spaces for news organizations that tell the truth.
I disagree with having the Daily Mail on the list, but that’s just a minor quibble. The principle is what’s important. Let the MSM lose their privileged status, which was unearned and undeserved.
The following report on the ban is written in a slanted way.
Several major news outlets found themselves blocked from attending a Friday White House press briefing with Sean Spicer, the Press Secretary, the latest sign of worsening relations between the Trump administration and the media attempting to cover it.
The New York Times, CNN, the Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and Politico were among the news organizations prevented from attending, according to posts by reporters from those outlets on Twitter, as were several foreign news organizations. The Associated Press and Time declined to take part. The White House was said to have invited press organizations to the event.
The three major broadcast networks – CBS, ABC, and NBC – were invited to the briefing, as were several news outlets that play to a conservative readership, such as Breitbart, The Washington Times and One America News Network.
Next they be accusing Trump of burning down newspaper offices and smashing printing presses.
