More Fake News: Mainstream Media Lies About Trump ‘Evicting’ White House Press Corp

21st Century Wire says…

Many mainstream news outlets have been abuzz about the headline going around saying that Trump may ‘evict’ the press corp from accessing the White House, but when one looks deeper into what is being written in such articles it quickly becomes clear that there is nothing official stated about disallowing any press from the White House.

Here’s the facts: Incoming White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, while discussing potentially moving the press corps room from the James Brady Press Room, to the White House Conference Room – in order to add more seating for press to cover President Trump in the White House said:

…If the plan goes through, one of the officials said, the media will be removed from the cozy confines of the White House press room, where it has worked for several decades. Members of the press will be relocated to the White House Conference Center—near Lafayette Square—or to a space in the Old Executive Office Building, next door to the White House.

Look to the Blaze for how this is spun into a narrative which serves the dual purpose of agitating Trump’s detractors into believing that he is going to suppress the freedom of the press and at the same time serves as a rouse to cause his ardent supporters to appear as though they are rejoicing at the potential of a Trump Presidency that would support suppressing the free press. When comparing the actual quotes with the editorial it is obvious that The Blaze and other mainstream media outlets are playing a wicked game of deceit to further the attempts at demonizing the incoming President.

We can now see who the real “Fake News” culprits are.

President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team is reportedly considering plans to evict the White House press corps from accessing the White House.

According to a report from Esquire, which cited three sources with the transition team, Trump administration officials are “seriously considering” plans to evict the press corps from being able to access the White House, arguing that it would allow the press increased access to Trump.

“There has been no decision,” incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer told Esquire, adding that “there has been some discussion about how to do it.”

More from Esquire:

If the plan goes through, one of the officials said, the media will be removed from the cozy confines of the White House press room, where it has worked for several decades. Members of the press will be relocated to the White House Conference Center—near Lafayette Square—or to a space in the Old Executive Office Building, next door to the White House.

Spicer, in his comments to Esquire, suggested that one of the reasons the administration is looking to evict the press from the White House is because they want to offer more members of the press the ability to cover Trump and the White House.

Currently, there are only 49 seats in the White House James Brady Press Briefing Room, not enough to honor the hundreds, and sometimes, thousands of requests from journalists to cover Trump, Spicer said.

However, a different, unnamed source told Esquire that the administration might have a different motive. According to the source, the administration is considering the move because of how the media covered Trump during the campaign and after his election victory.

Trump has repeatedly lambasted the media for their coverage of him, regularly taking to Twitter to blast a news agency or a reporter by name. Most recently, Trump scolded CNN’s Jim Acosta during his press conference…
