Skip to comments.New Sheriff: Trump Inquires About Revoking, Suspending CNNís White House Access; BuzzFeed Too
Posted on 01/11/2017 12:34:37 PM PST by HarleyLady27
An incensed President-Elect Donald Trump has asked the First Amendment gurus on his legal team if it is permissible to expel or restrict CNN and BuzzFeed News personnel from White House press corps, a transition insider told True Pundit.
At a raucous press conference Wednesday Trump warned BuzzFeed and CNN would suffer the consequences for publishing fake news about him, though he did not elaborate.

This just keeps getting better and better.
If he can’t evict them, just seat them in the back of the room.
Just never call on the Communist News Network for a question
If you can’t bar them put them in the back of the room and never call on them
Move their White House bureau to a broom closet.
I hope that President Trump can keep them out, you print the truth and have your sources and you let the American people know your telling the truth and we wouldn't have a problem...they (media) have not been disciplined for a long, long time and it's time now...
He did not elaborate at that time.
Dunce hats if they get to stay.
I love WINNING!!!!!!!!!
I’ve been calling for this since Summer, before the election if we won. They were nasty, non-factual, they gave the debate questions to Hillary, etc. Now this yesterday and today. I’m sure there’s a cut off number, I’m sure there are rules of decorum. Whatever it is, CNN has violated all of it.
What does one have to do, to become a member of the White House Press Corps?
What would happen if I went down there and claimed to be a reporter for Free Republic?
The press is given passes to the White House at the discretion of the White House. CNN is free to watch the press conferences on CSPAN or Fox News and report it. They have no right to be present.
I want McCain censured in the Senate!!
Does The Militant and The Daily Worker have press credentials? They are more honest than CNN since they are upfront with what their goals and philosophies are.
This will make others take pause before publishing FAKE NEWS.
If they can’t show any respect for the President or for the Presidency... they don’t belong there.
“just seat them in the back of the room.”
This is the approach I would take. Being expelled would make them a martyr.
imho - IGNORING them for 8 full years would be the deepest cut.
I think I would run that by Jim Robinson FIRST!!!
Just say to CNN...you’re welcome to be here Just not with this guy. He’s out of here. Revoke his credentials, and let CNN assign someone else.
I think they should put a group of chairs together back in one corner and label them for NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN...all of the Fake Stream Media people...
They aren’t going to like being disciplined.
Ho ho ho! I can hardly wait for the howling to begin! I love what Trump is doing with the media!
CNN was the First 24/7 News Channel and now a Joke
CNN has to be funded by billionaires. They wouldn’t be able to survive paying their on-air people with their ratings.
Good idea! Why not? FR press corp. :) No idea what would happen. Tell them Mr. Robinson sent you.
“...I think they should put a group of chairs together back in one corner and label them for NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN...all of the Fake Stream Media people...”
Would it not be hilarious to see Trump put his hand up over his forehead, like shading his eyes and looking far off in the distance and say, “Oh...It’s you guys!!!” Then ignore them????
Remove all their creature comforts. Give them offices in closets with no air conditioning. Dial-up web access only. No coffee or cafeteria privileges, etc.
About darn time we have a Republican in the White House who STANDS UP to the Commie media!!!
CNN's size and reach as a broadcasting giant should not figure into the equation if they are deemed unreliable, prejudiced, and actively harboring an agenda.
A few months or years without access to the press pool could be a good thing for CNN. It's way past time that they suffered the consequences of their bias. Perhaps they will be encouraged to be more responsible and ethical as a result.
(Oh, who am I kidding...)
If they could tell me to get lost under those circumstances, surely they can tell CNN's critters to get lost.
I figured out what CNN was back in 2006 when they started trashing Israel and calling them murderers..no one in Israel watches CNN they know CNN stands for the Anti Israel Network
Of course Trump can kick them out if he likes.
I bet a lot of the LIVs are under the impression that these MSM news organizations are somehow officially designated or officially licensed by the government as First Amendment Press entities and are therefore entitled to special legal rights over Joe Blow Blogger on the web. Not true.
Nowhere in the Constitution does it say the President has to speak to the press at all.
I agree and have been thinking about respect as I’m watching the Tillerson hearing.
Several Dems have the condescending habit of questioning if Tillerson understands issues relating to their questions.
From what I’m seeing he can think circles around most, if not all, of them.
Actually, it would be better to put them right up front, in a place of honor. Helen Thomas’s old seat perhaps, then completely ignore them but still be able to see them stick out their lower lips and pout.
Wouldn’t it be great to hold daily briefings and never call on mainstream media.
Mr. Trump, PLEASE DO IT. And include any other organizations that do the same, Talking Points Memo, and others. Make room for legit news organizations.
Put them at a little card table away from the adults, like at Thanksgiving dinner.
Jim Acosta’s anal sphincter is now rectangular and measures 2x4 inches.
Best News, Ever.
Gloria Borger, Dana Bash, Acosta, the male and female BLM sycophants, on there, like LEMON. Vicious.
Let them sit on the curb.
Probation for all The dang Marxist loving media.
I think the CNN seat is open.
You just got to LOVE it, when President Trump STANDS UP to the Fake News Groups (CNN, BBC)
Will CNN now call themselves BFN? Not Buzzfeed. Not Best Friends. But something else entirely in line with what they are.
I don’t know about CNN, but BuzzFeed shouldn’t even be up for debate. Who gave them access to begin with?
