THIS. IS. NOT. NORMAL! White House blocks news outlets from media briefing
The White House has blocked several high-profile media outlets from its press briefing. The Trump administration on Friday blocked legacy outlets including CNN, BBC, The New York Times, LA Times, the New York Daily News, the Daily Mail, and others from the White House press briefing. Officials also approved outlets who typically provide favourable coverage of the new administration. Several media outlets including the Associated Press and TIME Magazine declined to attend the briefing to boycott the President's decision.

Justin Carissimo at The Independent:

The White House has blocked several major news outlets from covering its press briefing.

White House Press Secretary Spicer on Friday hand selected news outlets to participate in an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the James S Brady Press Briefing Room.

The news outlets blocked from the press briefing include organisations who President Trump has criticised by name. CNN, BBC, The New York Times, LA Times, New York Daily News, Daily Mail, were among the news outlets barred from the gathering.

Instead, the press secretary hand-picked news outlets including Breitbart News, One America News Network, The Washington Times, all news organisations with far-right leanings. Others major outlets approved for t group included ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, Reuters and Bloomberg.

“Nothing like this has ever happened at the White House in our long history of covering multiple administrations of different parties,” Dean Baquet, executive editor of The New York Times said in a statement. “We strongly protest the exclusion of The New York Times and the other news organizations. Free media access to a transparent government is obviously of crucial national interest.”

Several media outlets including the Associated Press and TIME Magazine declined to attend the briefing to boycott the President’s decision.

The White House Correspondents’ Association also criticised the decision.

“The WHCA board is protesting strongly against how today’s gaggle is being handled by the White House,” Jeff Mason, the association’s president, said in a statement.

“We encourage the organizations that were allowed in to share the material with others in the press corps who were not. The board will be discussing this further with White House staff.”

And it’s also anti-American, to boot.

yo I read somewhere that that trump media survey is just to collect personal information so just a warning if you or anyone else wants to take it

right media said this about obama mailing lists aswell.

if they’re taking info it’s emails so that they can send their BS propaganda. and honestly? id rather be in the loop than not especially w this scary shit of trump blocking media from entering the White House now.

when you’re trying to sit on artwork till 3pm to post to instagram cause as far as you can tell that’s the best time to catch both the day crew but have it be “findable” in the scroll of the night people BUT WANTING TO POST NOW CAUSE YOU’RE PROUD OF WHAT YOU DID

and wondering if it even matters since instagram might not show your posts cause they don’t get over 40 likes consistently

I have a headache cause I didn’t go to bed on time GOOD MORNING HOW ARE YOU?

- guys, why bringing up marriage thing?!!! Eric officially denied it so let’s skip this talk plz. I can only handle one thing at a time! lol .. for now, the dating news are more than enough.. let it fade down first …
- I wish they perform “Super Power” at the concert so it’ll be a great distraction to us~!
- I also wish that next time Shinhwa’s dating or marriage news will be through Shinhwa Company itself! not from media outlets & “broke out” thing!
- I hope that no one is taking advantage of our oppa’s popularity or the timing of dating news isn’t perfectly coinciding with new projects for the other part!
- Those who left the fandom coz oppas are dating, well, it’s their own loss!
- Those who resell the concert tickets coz oppas are dating, well, judging you hard! 
- being shocked or sad after the dating news doesn’t mean you don’t like oppas or makes those who’re cool with the news better than you.. it’s the way you deal with oppas afterwards is what matters.
- & Wannie, I’m not forgetting you! already been praying for a speedy recovery & our denging machine gets well so soon. Take care of ur heath, oppa!

Oh boy the reaction on twitter is just negative and barely anything else (the closest social media from the crew). Fuck. Bismuth is still bubbled and the rubies in space who cares about ronaldo.

not even the hrdk SU fans liked this episode good job SU you managed to waste 11 minutes in the most boring useless way possible 

yknow there are times when i’m like a lot of y'all, wanting harry to tweet more and be active on social media. and then i see people like dominic sherwood, who is an absolute sweetheart and has barely a fraction of the fans/fame as harry, get hate for the smallest thing that was in no way bad and i find that i can literally never fault celebrities who choose to stay away from social media

I'm seeing from their social media that they're pretty focused on individual projects and not on the album so I'm not sure when would they plan to release 5H3. Considering the fact that they (except L) never really had those songwriting credits. It might be a good idea for them to do collabs first individually before 5H3 if only to see what type of music they bring and maybe to refine their songwriting skills too, so to speak.

i rather see them focused on solo now instead of focusing on it after 5H3 releases, they know what they’re doing so i will just let them be

I’ve sort of realized that Eras’ deviations seem to correlate to the peeps that’s been really helpful and helping him out with his development, and showing him kindess. Like horns for Veto, tail for James, and wings for Dangy.

Although that doesn’t seem to fit at all, because it’s lacking any influence from Rick.

What they do have in common is that they’re tulpas that haven’t been soulbonds, and from an already existing media. Which is curious given how Eras is based off of Papyrus.

Maybe it’s to signify the merge of both? He had already existed, but I had to deliberately seek him out rather than have him appear when he wanted to.

It’s rather fitting for the final member of our little family.

Eras had chosen bat wings to base his own off of. I think it suits him quite well! You can see the bones among the orange magic that fills the space in between.

It looks good! But I’ll need to draw it.

Apparently Dagny had also deviated from her single pair of eagle wings. Instead she has two pairs, which she had before. As long as she’s happy with it, that’s fine.

It looks beautiful~
