Well it’s not as if we couldn’t see it coming and it was only a matter of time. Donny The Dump has banned media groups he doesn’t like from briefings at the White House. It seems pretty clear that ‘doesn’t like’ has a clear definition – any media that doesn’t kiss his arse.
As long as you are prepared to bend over for The Dump up in the Oval Office then you will have unrestricted access to all the utter cobblers he comes out with on a regular basis.
Left to announce this to the few journalists who were allowed in was none other than the master of ‘Alternative Truth’ Sean Spicer – you really couldn’t make it up.
The BBC, CNN, the New York Times, the Guardian, the Los Angeles Times, Buzzfeed, the Daily Wail and Politico were among those excluded. According to Spicer they were banned because, “We are just not going to sit back and let false narratives, false stories, inaccurate facts get out there.” He should have added, “Unless WE have made them up.”
You will NOT be surprised to learn that those champions of Fair & Balanced reporting, Fox News, were allowed in and probably handed a lifetime pass. Seems pretty clear that the response by the so-called President to anything he doesn’t like is to simply refer to it as ‘fake news’. Let’s be honest, if ANYBODY knows about things that are fake . .. … ….
