CNN, NY Times blocked from WH media briefing
President Donald Trump and the White House just escalated the war with the American press. Now it's no longer just a war of words - now it has evolved into real action.

On Friday Trump reiterated his attack on media, claiming that some established media outlets invent fake news.

CNN and The New York Times were therefore among the major news outlets that were booted and did not participate during a press briefing in the White House. Also Politico, the Los Angeles Times and Buzzfeed were excluded.

At the same time for example Breitbart was let in - a website that is positive to Trump, and formerly led by Steve Bannon, who is now a presidential adviser.

The Associated Press and Time Magazine reacted by leaving the press briefing in protest.

The Wall Street Journal, which did participate in the briefing, said in a statement that it was unaware of the exclusions and "had we known at the time, we would not have participated, and we will not participate in such closed briefings in the future."

It's unprecedented but so is Trump.

Now CNN and Buzzfeed will have to cite Breibart. It's rather amusing.
