The media is having a complete meltdown! Several media organization barred from White House briefing. President Trump banned the New York Times, CNN, L.A. Times, and Politico from a press White House briefing.
Reporters from The Times, BuzzFeed News, CNN, The Los Angeles Times, Politico, the BBC and The Huffington Post were among those shut out of the briefing. Aides to Mr. Spicer admitted only reporters from a group of news organizations that, the White House said, had been previously confirmed.
Those organizations included Breitbart News, the One America News Network and The Washington Times, all with conservative leanings. Journalists from ABC, CBS, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and Fox News also attended.
Notice the quote below taken from The New York Times.
“Mr. Trump’s barrage against the news media continued well into Friday night. “FAKE NEWS media knowingly doesn’t tell the truth,” he wrote on Twitter shortly after 10 p.m., singling out The Times and CNN. “A great danger to our country.”
By the way, New York Times it’s President Trump not Mr. Trump! Get on board or get out of the way crybabies.

Dear media, WH is discriminating certain media outlets to distract you from the Russia/interfering with the FBI story. Coño! Stay focused.

They really don’t get it, do they?!
The White House Correspondents’ Association isn’t happy with the Trump administration’s move.
“The W.H.C.A. board is protesting strongly against how today’s gaggle is being handled by the White House,” association president Jeff Mason said in a statement. “We encourage the organizations that were allowed in to share the material with others in the press corps who were not. The board will be discussing this further with White House staff.”
