The White House Just Stuck It STRAIGHT To CNN With This Move…

CNN is reporting that the White House has blocked them, along with a handful of other media outlets, from attending a press gaggle today in place of the daily White House briefing.

The NY Times, LA Times and POLITICO were also denied entry to the event.

As is clear from the video below, the network is pretty wound up about it:

This news comes just hours after the President said during his speech at CPAC this morning that the media was the enemy of the American people—a statement he tweeted earlier this week.

  1. 1st amend restricts CONGRESS from making LAW(s) restricting free press. It says NOTHING about the WH OR the Prez from restricting access to either.

  2. Obama did it to FOX and of course it was a big joke to the left back then , so eat that crow and at some point report the truth .

      • What Obama did was way more scary than just not letting the bullies play with the group and that is how obama Was offended I guess. ”
        The Obama administration has investigated a reporter with Fox News as a probable “co-conspirator” in a criminal spying case after a report based on a State Department leak.

        The Justice Department named Fox News’s chief Washington correspondent James Rosen “at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator” in a 2010 espionage case against State Department security adviser Stephen Jin-Woo Kim. The accusation appears in a court affidavit first reported by the Washington Post.

        Kim is charged with handing over a classified government report in June 2009 that said North Korea would probably test a nuclear weapon in response to a UN resolution condemning previous tests. Rosen reported the analysis on 11 June under the headline ‘North Korea Intends to Match UN Resolution With New Nuclear Test’.

        The FBI sought and obtained a warrant to seize all of Rosen’s correspondence with Kim, and an additional two days’ worth of Rosen’s personal email, the Post reported. The bureau also obtained Rosen’s phone records and used security badge records to track his movements to and from the State Department.

        Fox News issued a sharply worded statement on Monday calling the episode “downright chilling”.

      • Liar, you did not check at all did you? White Houses have always chosen who attends and who does not attend. There is not room for all journalists applying. The liars and propagandists can still report their lies and distortions from outside the briefing, and they will.

        • No its not everywhere…… But I did find this.

          FOX News would be airing a revealing documentary about Barack Obama began circulating on the Internet in August 2009. When no such broadcast took place, curious potential viewers began wondering what

          happened to it: Did they miss it? Was it bumped in favor of a bigger or more timely news piece? Was it suppressed due to pressure by the Obama administration?

          The answer seems to be that this item was merely a recirculation of outdated information about a program that had aired the previous year (October 2008), not something that was about to air in October 2009 (when there was a resurgence of interest in the e-mailed item). This item continues to circulate well into 2012 with no particular date mentioned (other than the indefinite “Sunday night”), leading readers to mistake it for a current notice.

          Sunday, 5 October 2008, the FOX News show Hannity’s America was devoted to an hour-long program on Obama & Friends: History of Radicalism. But, as noted, that program was broadcast long before the current e-mail promoting it began circulating.

          It also isn’t the case that Fox was planning to repeat the original Sean Hannity piece but subsequently cancelled it. We spoke with a FOX News representative who confirmed that neither Obama & Friends nor any other similar documentary about Barack Obama was scheduled to be aired by Fox in 2009. (Fox did air a somewhat similar but distinctly different program, the Bret Baier-hosted President Obama in His Own Words, in late January 2010.)

          In September 2012 this rumor morphed into a version proclaiming that Fox would soon be airing the documentary 2016: Obama’s America, or that Fox had planned to do so but Attorney General Eric Holder threatened to pull their FCC license if they did. However, that film was still engaged in its original theatrical run, and no plans had been made to air it on Fox television.

    • EXACTLY!! Now the shoe is on the other foot huh? You reap what you sew. And the lying just needs to stop altogether. They put themselves in this mess and they can full well get themselves out. They just don’t want to have to admit that they have repeatedly lied to us.

      Honestly, what an insult to the American people for them to think that we are THAT gullible. The have hurt their own credibility to the point that I don’t know if it can ever be repaired.

      People aren’t hating on them just because they don’t have anything better to do. Americans are fed up with the lies. The FAKEnews media has a very high entitled opinion of themselves. They have to earn trust before trust is given. So far, they are traveling in the wrong direction.

  3. CBS, NBC, ABC, you’re next! The National Media Propaganda Machine can just go make up some news. They do not deserve “PRESS” credentials when all the do is regurgitate Liberal LIES!

  4. LOL ——————– Karma to those so-called “news” media for all the FAKE NEWS they have printed over the years AND especially the FAKE NEWS for the last few years.

  5. The press is the best instrument for enlightening the mind of man, and improving him as a rational, moral and social being

    No government ought to be without censors; and where the press is free no one ever will.

    Freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of person under the protection of the habeas corpus; and trial by juries impartially selected, – these principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us

    Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.

    Where the press is free and every man able to read, all is safe.

    • Oh BS. Nobody is suppressing their right to lie, distort, and propagandize to the American people. This time they did it from outside the briefing, where they belong. Solution; fire the propagandists and hire more real journalists.

  6. Can’t understand why MSNBC keeps getting by with all their Fake News. They are so much worse than CNN that it is scary. They actually interviewed Psychiatrists to discuss Trump’s obvious mental illness and the danger he posed to the USA and American people. They were serious and I’ve seen much, much more on that idiot network just as bad or much worse. Yet, MSNBC is seldom, if ever mentioned in the same light as CNN. Wonder why?

  7. GROUPS TRYING TO DESTROY THE USA IS BANNED, SEVERAL LAWS ON THE BOOKS & MUSLIMS ARE ONE OF THOSE GROUPS. THESE LAWS MUST BE ENFORCED.

  8. Ok. It’s not that they wanted reporters who would be “more favorable” to them (you just made that up, that is a lie right there. You “assumed” that and reported it as truth). They wanted reporters who would be TRUTHful, not favorable. If you would stop lying about what you hear, and/or twisting it up completely out of context, then the public wouldn’t be so angry at you, and the White House might be able to trust that you would report the TRUTH. That’s all we want also – the TRUTH. If you tell something that is 99% true and 1% lie, then it’s a lie. Stop it.

  9. This was NOT a press conference. Is a ” Gaggle ” when a pool of reporters are invited to a off camera informal setting. Happens all the time with every administration.

  10. If you remember the soft questions that came out of these fake news outlets such as CNN, the NYT, and Politico, and the vicious attacks on Donald Trump from the day he announced his candidacy it’s not hard hard to understand his position. They laughed when someone suggested he could become president; they gave Hillary debate questions, and have colluded with the left for decades. When you consider 97% of theses slime donated to Hillary’s campaign, because they don’t practice professional journalism but report with a constant bias. I’m amazed that anyone watches, or reads the garbage that come from any of those outlets.

  11. They have an entitled mentality, In their mind, they are more special and the 1st Amendment is reserve and only apply to them exclusively to spread fake news and spouting their verbal diarrhea. Now the shoe is on the other foot, oh the irony that others outside their exclusive club are exercising their 1st Amendment Rights to call them out on their BS. We are your sworn enemy and entitled to a seat at the People’s Table. We are a very exclusive bunch and how dare any person deny us our entitled seat.

  12. Let’s reiterate the same point 9 times for the first 1:30s of the video “We didn’t get in and the WH is a meanie” in order to make it seem like we’re actually talking about something.

    Then let’s add buzz words like “serious” in front of subjects to let our viewers know that matters like healthcare, tax reform, and immigration are “Serus” matters, and that they should be listening to us because we’re super serus. *Stern-face*. *Whispers* “this is serious… just fyi”. (Probably a fault with most reporting)

    Then let’s mention “Our viewers” to in order to evoke an empathetic reaction from our audience. “Aww they dooooo care about me!”

    Let’s also focus on the “Break out news story” narrative: “The White House initiated conversation with the FBI” without mentioning the hearsay that the FBI probably initiated contact with the WhiteHouse Admins first in order to place the blame on the Trump administration to fit our agenda even though we don’t have any concrete facts other than “Priebus asked McCabe to squash the (most likely) inaccurate accusations of ties with Russia prior-election” which would totally blow our agenda out of the water.

    I’m not saying that other news agencies don’t do this, but they’re talking down to you and they’re trying to shift your attention to a half-truth. What do we know for sure? Communication happened. What’s fuzzy? Who said what first. The fact that they’re willing to focus on a grey-area clause in order to shift attention from “Innacurate reports about Russian ties” and “who initiated contact first” dyes their bias. Also… If there’s a chance that the FBI initiated contact first why aren’t they hammering the FBI?

    Then people walk around “OMG…. CNN is so LIT!!!! Trump is a Dictating Spiritual successor to HITLER, because he banned the media” (That reports on half-truths)
    -_-
