“The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Politico, BuzzFeed, the BBC and the Guardian were also among those excluded from the meeting, which was held in White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s office.”
Read this story and consider this: Whether you like Trump’s Press Secretary or not, dealing with fraudulent bias media has been a long time coming. We do our best here with the resources we have, but that’s a drop in the bucket to what the President can do by exercising freedom of association.
“The decision struck veteran White House journalists as unprecedented in the modern era, and escalated tensions in the already fraught relationship between the Trump administration and the press.”
Unprecedented? Wrong. Most media outlets in the country are not granted access to cover white house press briefings and never have been.
If you believe “the media” has a right to access because of the First Amendment, then where were you when every president before chose who could and couldn’t have that access?
Since you are here now to fight for that notion, we expect you to fight for every media and press in the country including us.
You are ready to do that right?
