Donald Trump’s decision to revoke The Washington Post’s press credentials is nothing less than a repudiation of the role of a free and independent press. When coverage doesn’t correspond to what the candidate wants it to be, then a news organization is banished. The Post will continue to cover Donald Trump as it has all along–honorably, honestly, accurately, energetically and unflinchingly. We’re proud of our coverage, and we’re going to keep at it.
The Post joins the list of news organizations that have been temporarily banned from covering Trump’s campaign. Among others, Buzzfeed, Politico, Fusion, Univision, the Manchester (N.H.) Union Leader, the Des Moines Register, the Daily Beast and Huffington Post have all been denied press credentials at one point since Trump announced he was running for president in June.
