White House bans CNN reporter from press event for 'inappropriate' questions

Shep Smith responds to White House version of ‘disinvite’ of CNN reporter

Here are five things to know about the USA presidential pool spray.

President Trump has repeatedly attacked CNN as "fake news" and has refused to take questions from CNN reporters. "To be clear, we support a free press and ask that everyone be respectful of the presidency and guests at the White House", she said. The images and video usually feature a dozen or more journalists clad in IDs, headphones and gear, crammed into a small space and hoisting long, furry microphones toward the president. "It can not stand. Reporters asking questions of powerful government officials, up to and including the President, helps hold those people accountable". His goal overlaps with the media's aim of broadcasting these events to the world. But that's where aligned interests, and sometimes the dignity of the occasion, ends. The president has, on numerous occasions, responded to these shouted inquiries. After receiving no answer, she asked, "Are you anxious about what Michael Cohen is going to say to prosecutors?"

Others questioned why Fox News would side with CNN after it faced some of the same struggles during former President Barack Obama's administration.

By Obama's second term, frustrated reporters crafted a list of what it considered best practices for a president.

Demi Lovato overdose not caused by heroin
The singer-actress, who entered rehab in 2010, struggled with an eating disorder , self-mutilation and other issues. Demi had been struggling with substance abuse , having lived in a sober living home at one point.

During the Oval Office event, in which the president also met with Juncker, Collins sought to question Trump about the release of an audiotape involving then-candidate Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen in October 2016. A day earlier, CNN had obtained and aired a secret audio recording that captured Trump and Cohen discussing a potential payment to a former Playboy model who claims she had an affair with Trump. Later that day, according to Collins and CNN, she was reprimanded by press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and communications chief Bill Shine and barred from a Rose Garden event, which was open to all other members of the credentialed media.

"Reporters asking questions of powerful government officials, up to and including the President, helps hold those people accountable", the group said. But footage of the incident shows none of the assembled press heeded aides' calls to leave at first. "The idea that there is a delicate decorum- that's not how we conduct ourselves in this White House", Tapper told Stephen Colbert.

"That she asked relevant and timely questions of a president who often answers questions under identical circumstances and in the same setting", he added.

The White House on Thursday defended its decision to bar a CNN correspondent from attending an open press event but contended it had nothing to do with the questions she asked.
