‘This Is Not America’: Journalists Trash White House Barring Reporters From Press Gaggle

Reporters and pundits on Twitter reacted immediately and negatively to news Friday that the White House had barred certain organizations from attending a press gaggle, all outlets whose reporting Trump had previously criticized.

Two outlets that were allowed in but boycotted the gaggle — the AP and Time — received praise from fellow journalists.

UPDATE – 3:14 p.m. EST: Several blocked outlets have started responding to the White House’s decision.
