Press Banned from White House News Conference…
What American Fascism looks like:
Several major media outlets were not allowed into a White House press briefing on Friday, February 24th. CNN, the NY Times, the LA Times, BBC, the Guardian, BuzzFeed, and POLITICO were all kept out. The AP and Time boycotted the meeting, standing in solidarity with their fellow news organizations. The few that were permitted to attend included Breitbart (of course), One America Network, and the Washington Times.
This is a gross attack on the First Amendment, a clear insult to the belief in freedom of the press. It is one thing to accuse reporters of being ‘fake news’, but another thing entirely to directly prevent people from doing their jobs. Even the White House Correspondents Association was offended by this childish act of ignorance, stating in a Tweet that they are “protesting strongly against how today’s gaggle is being handled” and, “The board will be discussing this further with White House staff.”
