White House Bans CNN Journalist, Here's the Real Reason Why
The liberal media has lost its mind once again, this time exploding into hysterics over the Trump administration barring a CNN reporter from covering the White House.
If you flip on the evening news and listen to the narrative being pushed by liberal mainstream media outlets, you’d swear the president was on a mission to dismantle the First Amendment. This, again, is nothing more than ridiculous knee jerk reactions to these folks being rightfully put in their place.
Here’s the real reason why this journalist was banned.
Or as The New York Times put it: “The White House barred a CNN journalist from attending a public appearance by President Trump in the Rose Garden on Wednesday, an apparent act of retaliation that drew immediate rebuke from news organizations and signaled the latest escalation of Mr. Trump’s hostilities toward the news media.”
The Times quotes Kaitlan Collins, a White House correspondent for CNN, saying she was chastised for asking “inappropriate” questions. “They did not like the questions I asked President Trump about the news of the day,” Collins said.Trending:
That, she claimed, led to the White House barring her from the following press event in the White House Rose Garden.
But White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders offered a very different account.Advertisement - story continues below
“At the conclusion of a press event in the Oval Office a reporter shouted questions and refused to leave despite repeatedly being asked to do so,” Sanders said in a statement. “Subsequently, our staff informed her she was not welcome to participate in the next event, but made clear that any other journalist from her network could attend.”
She “refused to leave” the Oval Office.
This story is far different from the one you hear pouring out of major news outlets. And Collins herself has admitted that CNN was not actually barred from the event. She herself was barred from the event due to her lack of professionalism and disrespectful behavior. The network’s producers and photographers were still allowed to attend.
Sanders later made it clear that it wasn’t the questions being asked, it was the venue in which they were being asked and how Collins was not respecting other folks who were attending.
This wasn’t questions being lobbed during a regular press conference or on the tarmac at the airport. This happened in the Oval Office, the president’s main workspace. It was totally inappropriate for Collins to behave this way in this particular area.
Hopefully the media will take a chill pill and actually report the truth on this incident, though that seems highly doubtful.
