Goebbels would approve

Here:

WASHINGTON — Journalists from The New York Times and several other news organizations were prohibited from attending a briefing by President Trump’s press secretary on Friday, a highly unusual breach of relations between the White House and its press corps.

Reporters from The Times, BuzzFeed News, CNN, The Los Angeles Times and Politico were not allowed to enter the West Wing office of the press secretary, Sean M. Spicer, for the scheduled briefing. Aides to Mr. Spicer only allowed in reporters from a handpicked group of news organizations that, the White House said, had been previously confirmed.

Those organizations included Breitbart News, the One America News Network and The Washington Times, all with conservative leanings. 

When a regime attempts to destroy a free press, as is happening here, democracy itself is at risk. It is the end of freedom, and the start of tyranny. 

This is what fascists do.

    If ALL media was banned except a state-sponsored media, a fascist Gobbels moniker would be true. CNN and a few other news outlets is hardly ALL media, so it is patently NOT.

      Trump also won’t attend the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.

      Is there any outrage that this tyrant won’t stoop to !

    Jethro’s President. Ellie May’s hiding out in NYC. Jed, who can barely keep his family fed, thinks coal jobs are coming back to the Ozarks. Mr. Drysdale has joined the Treasury Department. No wonder Granny drinks.

    God man, it is so painfully obvious what is happening and I see democracy weeping like water through cupped hands and clenched fingers. The Americans are in for a second round of a Civil War. This time will be different however, while they are distracted by the fight with their own brothers and sisters, their real enemies gain ground. Its the perfect storm. You can see it gathering and cant do much about it.

    The end result of all of this will be the dried track of a spent tear.

    Warren,

    Fools aplenty…it will only make the liberal media even more aggressive to nail the big fish’s ass. Count on them to give 110% going forward. The political and tactical doofus is doomed.

      …and they can do it, too.
      Look what big media has done over the past decades to social democracy in North American. Look at the job they have done on labour and unions. …on peace groups, on social welfare, on all kinds of vulnerable people and groups that they have targeted.

    Bloomberg has stated they will not attend exclusionary briefings in the future. Someone has principles

    Gotta point out though that, as was mentioned on P&P tonight, Obama did basically the same thing when he boycotted Fox News. Not good for democracy when politicos from Right or Left of spectrum are doing it.

    I was in California last week and the rampant talk of leaving the union unless Trump goes was mind boggling. This talk has Jerry Brown’s fingerprints all over it and he is not one to back down from any right wing challenge. A major showdown between California and Trump is coming once he gets aggressive on deportation of illegals. California wants and needs them to do the work most US citizens there won’t even consider.
    Another major battle will unfold as Trump deregulates far beyond the norm.

      I must ask…who did all the work that Americans wouldn’t consider before “illegal” labor was imported en-mass since the 80’s? Surely produce was picked and hotel beds made, only then employers had to pay a minimum wage. Now they just exploit people, who then exploit the system. It’s bad for everyone. How do you think Mexico and Central America are faring with 25% of their workforce lost?

    Just when I think the Manbaby-in-Chief can’t sink any lower he goes and outdoes himself. I just bought a subscription to the NYT and Washington Post.

    Media shuns specific Trump Administration spokespersons: “Speaking truth to power”.

    Administration excludes selected news outlets: “Crime against humanity”.

    I don’t like this, however, I think our mainstream has failed in the past regarding both freedom of the press and protection of the rights of journalists. I think especially of the American Amy Goodman, and her police harassment at a political meeting in Minneapolis some years ago and, more recently, the arrest threats against her at Standing Rock.
    I think, too, of several years ago, in our country, when cops raided the apartment of a journalist in Ottawa, regarding the treatment of Maher Arar in Syria, and Canadian Government involvement. That story went away far too easily…and anonymously.
    Sometimes our 4th Estate in North America is a whole lot better at making pretty speech about its role in giving our democracy an informed citizenry, but not doing enough to protect the access of all journalism.

    Another one of Trump’s flying monkeys has links to anti-Semitic groups. As if Bannon isn’t bad enough…
