Donald Trump persists on war against US media outlets

 

Is the United States on the way to become a dictatorial country ? Undemocratic, unacceptable, the act was also qualified as un-American. Donald Trump administration banned journalist’s access to regular off-camera media briefing held last Friday afternoon at the White House ; dozen of journalists from some press organizations found their entry denied.  Among them, New York Times, Politic, BBC, The Guardian, Los Angeles times, BuzzFeed and CNN … they were the so-called « dishonest » reporters toward Trump administration as the President annouced during the Conservative Political Action Conference the same day.

 

Nothing like this has ever happened before. Through all the United States history, it was the first attempt to prohibit the First Amendment regarding the Freedom of Press. Not later than Friday, Trump has refered the unfriendly press as « Ennemy of the nation » by broadcasting fake news and false narrative with anonymous sources.  Sean Spicer, Press Secretary of the White House justified the decision by  extending the pool invited for more  journalist representatives on a rotative basis. However, coming from the White House, it was a very unusual decision.

 

While pleasant press such as Washington Times, Breitbart, Fox News and Bloomberg attended the briefing, Time Magazine and USA Today journalists decided not to attend the briefing as well considering the exclusion of their peers. Dean Baquet, Executive Director of New York Times stated that “ Free media access to a transparent government is obviously of crucial national interest ”.    

 

For its side, Buzz Feed declares that this kind of punishment won’t change the way they will report, « While we strongly object to the White House's apparent attempt to punish news outlets whose coverage it does not like, we won't let these latest antics distract us from continuing to cover this administration fairly and aggressively » said Ben Smith, Managing Editor.
