White House on banning CNN reporter from event

Let me translate humorously:

“We support a free press (until they ask us a tough question, or unless we are at a campaign rally inciting our audience against them, or unless we are tearing down objective reporting in general by claiming “Fake NEWS!”, and finally unless we are just in a mood to serially lie to them and the American public.)

The White House on Wednesday pushed back on reports that it banned CNN from a press event, saying it supports “a free press.”

According to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House banned a specific reporter because it expects “everyone to be respectful of the presidency and guests at the White House.”

“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.
