Trump administration commits ‘mass purge’ of journalists allowed to enter White House’ There’s something wrong with a president having the power to decide which journalists can cover him’

Friday 10 May 2019

Donald Trump’s administration has committed what journalists are describing to be a “mass purge” of press passes allowing career reporters to easily access the White House.

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, who this week received notice that his press pass had been revoked, along with many reporters in the White House press corps, wrote on Wednesday: “There’s something wrong with a president having the power to decide which journalists can cover him.”

“I was part of a mass purge of ‘hard pass’ holders after the White House implemented a new standard that designated as unqualified almost the entire White House press corps, including all seven of The Post’s White House correspondents,” Mr Milbank wrote.
