LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
Written by Mackenzie Vieth
President Donald Trump decided to ban specific news organizations (New York Times, Politico, CNN, Buzzfeed, and the L.A. Times) from a briefing at the White House today. Though the administration’s war on “fake news” has been raging since day one, many organizations are shocked and outraged at this recent snub towards news organizations. Though according to social media, outrage may be an understatement.
Donald Trump took his dictatorship to the next level.
CNN and others just blocked from the White House media briefing.

What Trump just did was take
Away the 1st Amendment from us.
