Trump bucks protocol on press access

I know most of you hate the press right now, but this is not a good thing.

WASHINGTON (AP) President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday refused to let a group of journalists travel with him to cover his historic first meeting with President Barack Obama, breaking a long-standing practice intended to ensure the public has a watchful eye on the nation's leader.

Trump flew from New York to Washington on his private jet without that "pool" of reporters, photographers and television cameras that have traveled with presidents and presidents-elect.

Trump's flouting of press access was one of his first public decisions since his election Tuesday.

Trump's meeting with Obama on Thursday will be recorded by the pool of White House reporters, photographers and TV cameras who cover the president.

News organizations had for weeks tried to coordinate a pool of journalists who could begin to travel with Trump immediately after Election Day if he won election. But his campaign did not cooperate with those requests and his senior advisers refused Wednesday, the day after the election, to discuss any such press arrangements.

Trump also broke from tradition as a candidate, refusing to allow a pool of campaign reporters, photographers or cameras to fly on his plane as he traveled to events.

Every president in recent memory has traveled with a pool of journalists when they leave the White House grounds. A pool of reporters and photographers were in the motorcade when President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas.

The pool was just steps away from President Ronald Reagan when he was shot outside a hotel in the District of Columbia, and was stationed outside his hospital room as he recovered. The pool also travels on vacation and foreign trips and at times captures personal, historic moments of the presidency.

News organizations take turns serving in the small group, paying their way and sharing the material collected in the pool with the larger press corps. The pool also covers official events at the White House when space doesn't allow for the full press corps.

The Associated Press is among those reaching out to Trump advisers about press access.

What did they expect when they covered him the way they did during the election? Lol.

Respect is a two way street.

Speaking of breaking from tradition...


Quote:
The meeting between a president and his successor is a longtime tradition. .....

The Obamas canceled a photo-op of the current and future first couples outside the south entrance of the White House. In his first visit to the White House after the 2008 election, Mr. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama posed for the cameras alongside President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush. The decision not to participate in this tradition illustrates how bitter the campaign was, particularly for Mrs. Obama who delivered some of the most emotional arguments against electing Mr. Trump.

I'm not sure, but are you trying to equate not doing a photo op with one of our nation's most important foundations - that of a free press whose arguable No. 1 job is to hold our public servants accountable? Do you think it's good for the American public if Trump only allows media to the WH that provide favorable coverage?

This is not a good thing.

One trip on his private plane and the headline is "bucks press coverage".

Of course it's a pinko Seattle paper. Tough shit for the media. What do they expect after they campaigned for HiLiaRy and smeared him relentlessly. They want fair treatment but won't reciprocate.

Do you think the media covered Trump fairly?

I think some did, and others did not. I don't subscribe to "the media" like so many do. If you want to know why, read this (it's a good read, really):

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...dc7_story.html

Regardless, I think our president has an obligation to uphold our Constitution, and if "the media" isn't allowed to cover maybe its most important assignment (the top spot, not Trump himself), I have a problem with that.

Full disclosure: I'm part of "the media" as I have worked since 2000 as a journalist and in the local TV biz (management now, so not directly involved with creation of content). And I grew up in and around "the media," as my dad has been a newspaper publisher for my entire 38 years on the planet.

If you can't see why he wouldn't want the media to tag along with him, I don't know what to tell you. He won in spite of CNN becoming biased, and feuding with Fox News.

Yes. The worst coverage of Trump usually comes from his own Twitter account.

The Media is finding out they're irrelevant now. Social media and alt-forms are becoming as influential.
