Yesterday The White House on Wednesday banned a CNN reporter from a press event in the Rose Garden.
And the name of the reporter is Kaitlan Collins she is now part of the “fake news network” but she used to be the White House correspondent at the conservative news site Daily Caller. it seems she forgot everything when she received the money from CNN
Collins reportedly asked the president questions about the fake news that they produce!
She asked, “Did Michael Cohen betray you, Mr. President?” and repeated the question once, according to CNN. She then asked, “Mr. President, are you worried about what Michael Cohen is about to say to the prosecutors? Are you worried about what is on the other tapes, Mr. President?”
When Trump didn’t respond, Collins asked, “Why is Vladimir Putin not accepting your invitation, Mr. President?”
Trump ignored the questions and said, “Thank you very much, everybody”
Of course, the mainstream media launched an immediate attack on the First Amendment from President Trump and they did that just with the claims made by the fake news reporter!
She said that after the event, Bill Shine, the newly-minted White House deputy chief of staff for communications, called Collins into his office. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was also present.
“They said ‘You are dis-invited from the press availability in the Rose Garden today,'” Collins said. “They said that the questions I asked were inappropriate for that venue. And they said I was shouting.”
But once again, that’s not the full story (and just for the record, a lie of omission is still a lie).
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders offered a very different account.
“At the conclusion of a press event in the Oval Office a reporter shouted questions and refused to leave despite repeatedly being asked to do so,” Sanders said in a statement. “Subsequently, our staff informed her she was not welcome to participate in the next event but made clear that any other journalist from her network could attend.”
She “refused to leave” the Oval Office.
Far different from the versions you’re hearing in the MSM. And Collins herself noted that CNN wasn’t barred from the event. She said on CNN that she was told, “We’re not banning your network. Your photographers can still come. Your producers can still come. But you are not invited to the Rose Garden today.”
Here’s what CNN said:

Collins asked that fifth question twice, so six questions. In an Oval Office spray, it’s cool to ask one question, maybe a second on your way out — but six?!
Here’s a video of the melee as the White House staff tries to get the press corps out of the Oval (click ahead to 1:20 if you want to skip Collins’ sanctimony):

when they are rude shouting questions and want to demean our president with propaganda questions that can’t be verified, trying to embarrass our president then I am glad they are going to be banned. They should consider banning certain networks from the press conferences also as all they do I ask unimportant gotcha questions. Certainly, CNN is one of them.
I mean don’t get me wrong I am a strong supporter of the First Amendment but this madness gotta stop!
Reports show that anywhere from 70% to 90% of the coverage of Donald Trump by the media is negative. Add to that that they frequently take him out of context or hold him up to ridicule. Then, when Trump fights back against a deliberate effort to impugn him, they scream that he is attacking the “free press” and journalists. Actually, Trump is striking back against political activists and propagandists.
