White House blocks fake news organizations from off-camera press briefing

30

Fantastic! It is so good to see the President ferreting out fake news outlets. Obama had his handpicked stooges serve up his mendacious propaganda. It’s time to purge the yellow journalists, liars and anti-American propagandists.

White House blocks news organizations from press briefing

CNN & others blocked from White House media briefing
CNN and other news outlets were blocked Friday from an off-camera White House press briefing, raising alarm among media organizations and First Amendment watchdogs.

The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Politico and BuzzFeed were also excluded from the meeting, which is known as a gaggle and is less formal than the televised Q-and-A session in the White House briefing room. The gaggle was held by White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

In a brief statement defending the move, administration spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the White House “had the pool there so everyone would be represented and get an update from us today.”

The pool usually includes a representative from one television network and one print outlet. In this case, four of the five major television networks — NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox News — were invited and attended the meeting, while only CNN was blocked.

And while The New York Times was kept out, conservative media organizations Breitbart News, The Washington Times and One America News Network were also allowed in.

Both CNN and the Times protested the decision.

“This is an unacceptable development by the Trump White House. Apparently this is how they retaliate when you report facts they don’t like. We’ll keep reporting regardless,” CNN said in a statement.

The White House press office had informed reporters earlier in the day that the traditional, on-camera press briefing would be replaced by a gaggle in Spicer’s office, reporters in attendance said.

Asked about the move by the White House Correspondents Association, the White House said it would take the press pool — including one television, one radio and one print outlet — and invite others as well.

The WHCA protested that decision on the grounds that it would effectively amount to a ban on whatever news organizations were not invited, the reporters said. The White House did not budge, and when reporters arrived at Spicer’s office, White House communications officials only allowed in reporters from specific media outlets.

CNN reporters attempted to access the gaggle when it began around 1:45 p.m. ET. As they walked with a large group of fellow journalists from the White House briefing room toward Spicer’s office, an administration official turned them around, informing them CNN wasn’t on the list of attendees.

Asked during the gaggle whether CNN and The New York Times were blocked because the administration was unhappy with their reporting, Spicer responded: “We had it as pool, and then we expanded it, and we added some folks to come cover it. It was my decision to expand the pool.”

Several news outlets spoke out against the White House’s decision.

New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet wrote, “Nothing like this has ever happened at the White House in our long history of covering multiple administrations of different parties. We strongly protest the exclusion of The New York Times and the other news organizations. Free media access to a transparent government is obviously of crucial national interest.”

The Associated Press and Time magazine boycotted the briefing because of how it was handled.

The White House Correspondents Association also protested the move.

“The WHCA board is protesting strongly against how today’s gaggle is being handled by the White House,” it said in a statement. “We encourage the organizations that were allowed in to share the material with others in the press corps who were not. The board will be discussing this further with White House staff.”

Hours earlier, at the Conservative Political Action Conference outside Washington, President Trump mocked and disparaged the news media. He said that much of the press represents “the enemy of the people.”

“They are the enemy of the people because they have no sources,” Trump said. “They just make them up when there are none.”

He also said reporters “shouldn’t be allowed” to use unnamed sources.

      Those banned must return to good manners and a respect for the office of President before being permitted return to press briefings. The President has earned respect, and the media should leave their sophomoric disrespect for Mr. Trump at the corner bar..

    It is not a disgrace that CNN and Wapo are corrupt. What is a disgrace that after being corrupt, they are still among the top news websites. This means there is a market and demand for such corruption that they engage in. Which means the problem is much, much bigger than would appear at the first glance.

    For example – If citizens themselves are islamic, and are attracted to pro-islam news, then it is only natural that the pro-islam news outlets would be at the top. Likewise, if the citizens themselves are biased and corrupt, then it is only natural that the corrupt and biased news outlets (CNN, Wapo) would be at the top.

    “On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski stated President Trump “could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that is our job”.

    Look at the pack of lame stream media spun lies and precedents set on lies form the democrat administration. The limp clits of cnn, the noo dork times and others demand the lying bigoted status quo that they spew as propaganda, be continues in an ongoing propaganda campaign to damage the President.

      Had to laugh at that one. “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski stated President Trump “could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that is our job”.

      Here’s the link in case some didn’t see it. What a freudian slip or in this media guy’s case – a “fraud-ian slip”.

    That is such BS. Obama would have CLOSED DOOR SECRET and PRIVATE meetings all the time with the LIBERAL MEDIA!
    Look at Donna Brazille passing DEBATE questions onto Hillary by the LIBERAL DEBATE folks.

      Their amateurish conduct has been taken for granted by them and many others for so long that they really can’t see themselves but of course a lot of it is just plain whining.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Trump simply got the attention of the media by singling out the guilty parties. He never revoked anyone’s press credentials, otherwise they would have squealed like a stuck hog. Truman once kicked a guy out of the WH for criticizing his daughter’s piano playing in a newspaper article.

    Don, where are youuuu…

  • donojibway

    There should be real world consequences to “news” organizations that persist in distributing fake news, like that Trump and Russia worked together to undermine the Democrat campaign. Not one source for that story has come forth, yet they still report that 16 US government security agencies said it happened.

  • Steve

    This is fantastic. Trump really is taking this “where no president has gone before” (thanks star trek for part of the line). I think he really is catalyzing a movement in many ways. For example – see the link – Here’s a recent interview with Tucker Carlson with Robert Davi who lays it down about hollywood hypocrisy – its hilarious. More people it seems are taking stands and speaking up – even many actors in hollywood who like republicans. Few would have thought it just a year or so ago. Some media of course won’t talk about it. They’re getting true justice.

    As it turns out i was watching Spicer talk to Judge Jeanine and there actually was no ban. It was a pool taking turns and an expanded group. Thus, the leftist news -cnn, nyt, others, are once again trying to cause trouble by lying!
