Trump White House blocks CNN, New York Times, BuzzFeed, Politico from press briefing
In the latest shot fired between the White House and the press corps, the Trump administration reportedly blocked numerous mainstream media outlets from being in on Friday afternoon's scheduled press briefing.
CNN, the New York Times, BuzzFeed, the Los Angeles Times and Politico were all denied access to the small briefing known as a "gaggle"—an informal session that's on the record, but without cameras televising the event.
Those that were allowed to attend included NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox, as well as conservative outlets Breitbart, the Washington Times, and One America News Network.
The Associated Press and Time reportedly boycotted the briefing.
