The White House has blocked several major news outlets from covering its daily press briefing without any explanation.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Friday hand-selected news outlets to participate in an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the James S Brady Press Briefing Room.
The news outlets blocked from the press briefing include organisations that President Trump has criticised by name. CNN, BBC, The New York Times, LA Times, New York Daily News, BuzzFeed, The Hill, and the Daily Mail were among the news outlets barred from the gathering.
Instead, the press secretary hand-picked news outlets including Breitbart News, One America News Network and The Washington Times, all news organisations with far-right leanings. Other major outlets approved included ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, Reuters and Bloomberg.
