This is shameful on the part of the Trump administration. I can understand not liking the media, but banning them from daily briefings is just a low blow and absolutely no excuse for this.

I'm at the point where we might...scratch that...will definitely be better off with Pence at the helm. At least he has the decorum Trump lacks. I've never supported Trump, but at this point, I'm pretty much done with the idea that I might get on board with what he's doing. I mean, I can't really think of much he has in the way of redeeming qualities.

Something has to be done about this.

There isn't anything more dangerous about the Trump presidency than his attempts to undermine the media and control "truth".

CNN is easily one of the most reliable TV source for news, and NYT is one of the most reliable print sources. It's time to stop letting people get away with calling them fake news.

This is what Putin does in Russia. It is called communism.

Sad day indeed. Trump has completely disregarded the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution.

Well, the difference is we have a Congress and Supreme Court, so the President can't do whatever he wants. I think it's past time for Congress to step up to the plate and censure him for banning reputable news outlets from White House briefings.

And the media at large should band together to protest this, including Fox. All journalists should see the danger in this.

I agree. Seems like the courts have stepped up to slow him down on these deportations. This is just crazy what Trump is doing.

This has crossed a line. Honestly, this is the start of the process that sees people take up the 2nd Amendment.

That you think the banned outlets are fake news is telling about where your loyalties lie, and it certainly doesn't include any sense of reality.
I will be shocked if you get an answer or he actually tries to discuss anything of substance, based on his recent posting history on PDB. He only posts here to troll the liberals.

No. It's called fascism.
