The White House banned certain media outlets from it's press conference on Friday.

Several major media outlets were blocked by the White House from attending spokesman Sean Spicer's media briefing on Friday.

The New York Times, CNN, the Los Angeles Times, Buzzfeed, Politico, BBC, the Daily News and several foreign news organizations were not permitted to cover the briefing.

Several conservative media outlets, including Breitbart, the Washington Times, One America News Network and a number of mainstream news organizations such as ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, Reuters, and Bloomberg were allowed into Spicer's office.

Remarks:

Is it against freedom of the press for the White House to do this?

Well it brings up bigger questions, do news media outlets have the right to lie, create fake news? There are standards with other reporting, if something is fiction it usually has to be identified that way, but does that apply to News Reporting? I don't think it has till now.

Reporters have been allowed to conceal their sources, and have a Constitutional protected right not to be forced to reveal their sources, but how far does that go? Does their network need to know the name and source of the lead/information, or do the reporters not have to tell anyone? Trump wants the papers to specify their sources, so that fact checking can be done, and that would stop FAKE NEWS when a story just quotes, 'sources close to whatever entity or investigation they are reporting on'.

So it is two questions: Does the paper, network have to report the sources and name them?
Do they have to reveal them if asked by someone in Trump's administration?

Trump has been very frustrated over the leaks of confidential information regarding FBI investigations, and one reporter said they think John McCain is the source of the leaks. Obviously they won't name him because that would be a BIG deal.

Is lieing a Constitutionally protected right under freedom of expression?

What kind of penalties should a news organization face if they cannot corroborate their sources?

Is Trump practicing suppressing the press? Yes, but he just wants accuracy from what is being reported. Is he wrong? Not from a moral standpoint.

The answer is in the question.

He's also the same person that implored a foreign nation to hack a political opponent. The fact that you continue to rationalize this guy as a person to admire gets funnier with every post you make.

Monday February 27th, President Trump reveals his plan against Isis. Which is probably why he had Centcom do a quiet visit to Syria.

The fact that you think news outlets lie and are giving Trump a pass for lying says volumes.

The fact that Trump was the biggest fan of Wikileaks on the planet and probably wouldn't have been elected without it, and all of a sudden he is concerned about leaks and anonymous sources is the ultimate in hypocrisy.

Truth is Trump is scared to death of the media because he is corrupt and they will bring about his downfall. If news media publish a fake story, he is welcome to dispute that story with facts. But facts and Trump go together like oil and water. It is much easier to just blame the media and his supporters blindly follow their idol. The term fake news came about from Pizzagate, a made up conservative story, and has turned into a rally cry for Trump and his supporters for any story that shows Trump in a less than flattering light. I have to give Trump some credit, he is a master con artist who can make his followers believe anything.

Banning media outlets he doesn't like [because they hold him accountable, and don't kiss his a$$] is the first step in a dictatorship.

"President Donald Trump has announced that he will not attend this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner, a move that comes amid increasingly hostile relations between the media and the White House."

http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/25/politics/trump-declines-to-attend-white-house -correspondents-dinner/

Trump skips this because he views the press as well as truth and facts as enemies. He's a pu$$y for skipping this and too thin-skinned to handle the jokes that would have been made about him.

He lies at will, and it's ironic that he referred to his number one challenger during primaries, Ted Cruise as "Lying Ted". The media has exposed one lie after another from Trump, the fake President.

Wikileaks...my opinion, they can be the great neutralizer on hidden agendas, lying politicians etc. I also believe if there is something on Trump it would be released. If that were to happen, Trump's supporters would be on him like flies on you know what, including myself.


No, you wouldn't. At least be honest.

"Lying" in print is illegal (if it's defamatory), it's called libel. There is no evidence any major news outlet has recently done so.

Suppression of the press is unconstitutional. He is wrong from every standpoint. There is nothing moral about suppressing information from agencies just because a politician disagrees with them. Being President is difficult. Trump can be a grown up professional and defend his policies, or be a coward and avoid opposing opinion and free thought.

Its rather ironic that trump accuses certain media outlets of "lying" and "fake news" [with no real proof of it] when in reality, every time he opens his mouth, lies come out of it.
