President Donald Trump and Press Secretary Sean Spicer just took the unprecedented step of banning major news outlets from a White House press briefing, including CNN, the New York Times, POLITICO, the Los Angeles Times, and Buzzfeed News.
Instead, they filled the room with conservative propaganda outlets like fascist hate-rag Breitbart, conservative TV channel One America News, and clickbait fake news site GatewayPundit.
The New York Times has just responded to the Trump Administration’s outrageous attack on the freedoms of the press enshrined in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which Trump swore a sacred oath to uphold and defend.

The Gray Lady has been providing Americans with accurate and unbiased reporting since 1851. Never before has it been slandered as “fake news” or have been denied access to the official communications of the White House.
The New York Times has been long regarded as one of the premier journalistic institutions for the majority of our nation’s history, and it will remain so long after Donald Trump has been removed from office.
