If they'd be honest then he wouldn't have to tell them to piss off.

So much for Freedom of the Press


They still have their freedom. They just can't report fake news about the president.

Huffington Post and Politico were also apparently blocked.

If you believe that just because a news organization runs negative stories about Trump, that makes them "fake," I really feel sorry for you. I voted for Obama and was quite critical of him, and yet when I look around at Trump supporters all I see is this simplistic, blind devotion—everything he does is good, and anything bad that happens is the MSM's fault. If you agree with any president 100% on all issues, there's a good chance that you're not thinking critically.

I would rather the media report what Trump said and they can stuff their editorializing. I am not looking for some a-hole at CNN to tell me what to think about what was said.


I remember Trump giving them a chance and they asked him the most irrelevant questions. I'd kick the idiots out too.

NYT is saying that "nothing like this has ever happened"! That is fake news. It has happened:


Obama’s private briefings for liberal members of the media, which excluded conservatives, were well-documented. A few:

December 2012: Several journalists reported that MSNBC hosts were meeting privately with President Obama to discuss the impending “fiscal cliff” fight.
May 2013: NPR’s Ari Shapiro reported that President Obama was meeting privately with “lefty columnists,” but hastened to add that there was “nothing nefarious” about it.
November 2013: President Obama met again with liberal journalists, as Obamacare struggled with the failure of healthcare.gov and other problems.
March 2015: Politico’s media reporter, Hadas Gold, reported that “a group of journalists and columnists,” all on the left, met privately with President Obama, but the White House refused to say “who else was at the meeting or what was discussed.”

So much for basic understanding.

This has nothing to do with the press's freedom. As you see, they're all still covering it.

It's also amusing seeing the same MSM which suppresses many alternative outlets and tries putting a monopoly on media, is crying about that monopoly being broken up. That's what this is, breaking up the cartel. New voices.

Trump is such a fool. His administration is so full of leaks, the msm doesn't need an invitation, they get the news directly from the WH anyway. The press briefing are just so Trump can get the camera time that he loves.

The MSM does this all the time, they blackball countless journalists/media who don't tow their party line.

Perhaps you'll show us that members of the Press that have covered the White House FOR YEARS were EXCLUDED from an official briefing.

Because that would be comparable to what happened today, not the President giving interviews as he chooses.

Sorry, I don't consider puffpo, CNN, or politico, or faux to be news organizations. I have felt this way long before Trump was news. They made their beds and now they can sh!T in them.

1 % news followed by 99% opinionated fluff is not journalism. It is propaganda.

They aren't being "blocked". The news media outlets that were there can share everything discussed with them. Others were simply chosen for a change.

Just because CNN, Politico, NYT, and a few others were left out so others could participate in our system doesn't mean they were blocked.

Sheesh! The world is coming to an end because the NYT and CNN were out and others were in today.

Would you provide us with some actual, sourced examples, please?

Thanks.

Can you show me where it says these people must be allowed unfettered access when they decide they deserve it?

No. Trump is no fool. He knows what's going on. The leaks are going to be found and plugged. The swamp has to be drained first.

They were blocked. It was obvious. Time and the AP walked out in protest.

I'm glad you're on the record in support of this travesty though.

They will never do it, because of the bottom line ... but I'd love to see some solidarity against this crap.


Yeah, a little bit of that "I'm a Muslim too" would go a long way about now.

It would also make it a lot easier to identify the "real" fake news outlets.

I gave up on expecting any truth out of the White House when Sean Spicer tried to convince us that Trump had the biggest inauguration crowds in history and that aerial photography was just a theory.
