An incensed President-Elect Donald Trump has asked the First Amendment gurus on his legal team if it is permissible to expel or restrict CNN and BuzzFeed News personnel from White House press corps, a transition insider told True Pundit.
At a raucous press conference Wednesday Trump warned BuzzFeed and CNN “would suffer the consequences” for publishing “fake news” about him, though he did not elaborate.
Trump first floated the inquiry of punishing the news organizations Tuesday evening in private conversations with legal and communication experts on his transition team. Those discussions included possibly stripping CNN and BuzzFeed of White-House credentials.
Trump officials believe the White House could legally remove CNN’s designated seat in the White House press room and BuzzFeed’s partial seat it shares with another organization, the insider said. This would be done by first revoking separate White House press credentials which are administered by the president’s administration — namely incoming press secretary Sean Spicer — and not the White House Correspondents’ Association. The reason? Intentionally publicizing and spreading bogus news, a violation of White House press corps tenets.
Yes..., CRAP NEWS NETWORK.....!!
Obviously any "news" that's negative about Trump is fake news. It is safe to ignore any criticism of Trump. Once he is sworn in I hope he gets a law passed that will outlaw such fake news. The establishment is just upset that he will drain the swamp, that he will fight the establishment and Wall Street.
Are you talking about Trump or Obama?
Ken, you're too cute by a half.
Criticism NOT out right LIES ! There has to be responsibility taken for what LIES they repeat. Not to mention the outright fabrication of Fake News by many MSM Libernazi News networks. Remember one Dan Rather who lost his job over proven Fake News about Dubya ! This has become an every day occurrence with the lame stream News.
Anything against Trump is a lie and not criticism. We the people voted for Trump in a landslide and we the people need to be behind him 100%. We already have seen that Trump himself does not tolerate any negative statements, "criticism" or so called "news". We the people need to do the same.
Once again, you demonstrate your total lack of understanding the issue. Your reactions to CNN's personal slander would be what - to simply laugh about it? It's not criticism - it's SLANDER. Buy yourself a dictionary!
That HACK leftist journalist was not only out of line, that wimpy little sh!t would never have the BALLS to stand up to (that anti-American gay preezy), Obama. Little Jimmy Acosta should now be banned from the WH reporter pool, like the thinned skin complete chicken sh!t Obama had done to many other reporters. Only those past reporters were HONEST.
We get it. You don't like Trump. No one around here really gives a sh!t that you don't. ......How you can come to your asinine conclusions, is now evident. You clearly demonstrate your complete lack of comprehension of the issue. Totally clueless is more like it!
Please go back under your rock or to the Democrat Underground where your despicable ilk reside and can revel with equally delusional comments like yours. FOOL!
BINGO, Johnny, give that man a prize!
Perfectly stated, Frank, and I echo your sentiments 100%.
My solution to this issue is as follows:
1) BAN the CNN (Communist Nude Nutwork) creep that verbally harassed Trump at his press conference yesterday. His credentials are hereby permanently revoked, PERIOD.
2) Assigned seating for all "journalists". CNN would now be at the very back of the room and NEVER get a single question asked or responded to, EVER.
3) Implement a raising of the hands, with NO verbal comments until called upon policy from now on. If you violate this policy, your credentials will be revoked and your organization's seat will be moved to the very back of the room with CNN.
4) Escort any out of control, belligerent a-holes like Acosta (Accosted? Coincidence? I think not!) out of the room with armed police and charge them with interfering with official state business if they continue to misbehave and attempt to 'shout down' President Trump ever again.
That should whip the out of control lamestream media idiots into shape immediately.
Punish them hard, right away, without fail, create a less hostile environment for Trump to be able to get his message out and do his job without the distractions of lies and FAKE NEWS like cnn.
WELL said Frank...................as usual. Everybody is entitled to their own opinions. They are NOT entitled to their own set of "FACTS".
