Trump’s Attacks on Media Will Be Felt by Journalists Around World

DemocracyNow! Discusses the Committee to Protect Journalists

On Friday, the White House took the unprecedented act of barring The New York Times, CNN, Politico, the Los Angeles Times, the BBC and several other news organizations from an off-camera briefing known as a gaggle.

Meanwhile, several right-wing news outlets were allowed to attend, including Breitbart, The Washington Times and One America News Network. Just hours earlier, Trump repeatedly attacked the media, describing it as an “enemy of the people.”

Then, on Saturday, Donald Trump announced he would not attend this year’s White House correspondents’ dinner. The last president to skip the dinner was Ronald Reagan in 1981. At the time, Reagan was recovering from an assassination attempt.

We speak to Robert Mahoney, deputy executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists.

    (((Amy Goodman))) & (((“Democracy Now!”))) are perfectly happy to bash “White privilege” & “Whiteness” itself.

    Here’s a show Amy could do (after Hell freezes over):

    Take the Jews out of the media and see how much “White privilege” remains.

    Take the Jews out of Hollywood and see how much “White privilege” remains.

    Take the Jews out of Wall Street and see how much “White privilege” remains.

    Take the Jews out of the Fed and see how much “White privilege” remains.

    Take the Jews out of the “White privilege” and see how much “White privilege” remains.

    Well Amy, fearless investigative journalist, the ball is in your court.
