White House bars multiple outlets from press briefing after Trump threatens to 'do something' about the media

Many media outlets barred from press briefingsThe White House ramped up its war with the press Friday afternoon, barring multiple outlets from getting to ask questions as it let in a select few for a briefing from Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Among the many outlets barred from Spicer's office: CNN, The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, RealClearPolitics, BBC, and the Daily News. Others — like the conservative Breitbart and One America News Network — were given the nod and allowed in, as well as Fox News, ABC, NBC and the standard rotating "pool" of reporters who are allowed in to every public event.

Fox host Shepard Smith slams president, Trump supporters call for his head

Shepard SmithFox News anchor Shepard Smith is under fire for criticizing President's Trump's treatment of CNN reporter Jim Acosta during a freewheeling news conference Thursday and for Trump's refusal to answer questions about his campaign's ties to Russia.

"It's crazy what we're watching every day," Smith said after Trump's news conference. "It's absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we're some kind of fools for asking the question. Really? Your opposition was hacked and the Russians were responsible for it and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it was happening and we're fools for asking the questions? No sir."

"We have a right to know," Smith added. "You call us fake news and put us down like children for asking questions on behalf of the American people."

The Journalism Empire Strikes Back

Jounralists strike backAfter weeks of mocking the mainstream media as “fake news” and “the opposition party”—an attempt to delegitimize an essential participant in American democracy in order to control the version of reality being sold to the citizenry—Donald Trump and the people around him are being forced to confront a basic fact:

Journalists matter.

And with the firing of White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn—a step President Trump took very reluctantly Monday night in response to the damaging revelations published by The Washington Post and The New York Times about the retired general’s lies concerning his conversations with the Russian ambassador—journalism as an institution has reasserted itself.
