White House Blocks CNN & Other News Organizations From Press Briefing — WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!

We wish this was #FAKENEWS… but it isn't.

On Friday, CNN, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Politico and BuzzFeed among other news outlets, were blocked from attending an off-camera press briefing at the White House. Press secretary (and Melissa McCarthy muse) Sean Spicer hosted a gaggle, which is less formal than the usual televised Q/A session we've been seeing.

This is unbelievably fucked up!! Especially since Donald Trump just spoke out at CPAC about how much he loves the FIRST AMENDMENT — which includes freedom of the damn press. Sounds like a direct infringement, Donny!

In response to backlash, administration spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the White House "had the pool there so everyone would be represented and get an update from us today."

This "pool" includes a representative from one television network and one print outlet — NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox News were there, only to leave CNN in the dust. And to no surprise, conservative Breitbart News, The Washington Times and One America News Network were allowed in.

THIS IS HOW DICTATORSHIPS START!!!

CNN immediately (and rightfully) protested the decision saying:

"This is an unacceptable development by the Trump White House. Apparently this is how they retaliate when you report facts they don't like. We'll keep reporting regardless."

While New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet chimed in:

"Nothing like this has ever happened at the White House in our long history of covering multiple administrations of different parties. We strongly protest the exclusion of The New York Times and the other news organizations. Free media access to a transparent government is obviously of crucial national interest."

Here here! Listen up ignorant orange Steve Bannon puppet POTUS!

The White House Correspondents Association also spoke out against the clearly stupid choice:

"The WHCA board is protesting strongly against how today's gaggle is being handled by the White House. We encourage the organizations that were allowed in to share the material with others in the press corps who were not. The board will be discussing this further with White House staff."

This story is SURE to make more news, so stay tuned HERE for the latest!
