New Sheriff: Trump Inquires About Revoking, Suspending CNNís White House Access; BuzzFeed Too
TruePundit ^ | Jan 11, 2017 | Admin

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.

If he can’t evict them, just seat them in the back of the room.

CNN has always been bad, my elderly sister listens to it for hours on end, I have a fit over her doing that, but she is 90 so what can I do...

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.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

There already exist some guidelines for what media outlets are allowed immediate access to the President's activities. Some discrimination is necessary.

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...)

That's not the point ... The point is to understand what constitutes a bonafide "reporter". Who decides? On what basis? Suppose Jim gave me a letter saying "< North Mountain's real name > is a reporter for the news and commentary website Free Republic"? Would that get me in? Would they tell me to get lost? On what basis?

If they could tell me to get lost under those circumstances, surely they can tell CNN's critters to get lost.

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.

IF Donald Trump ever takes a question from the Clinton News Network ever again, he should recognize the reporter from the Buzzfeed Network.

Image result for cnn buzzfeed

 

 

Will CNN now call themselves BFN? Not Buzzfeed. Not Best Friends. But something else entirely in line with what they are.
