    This is what really pisses them off... When he uses Twitter, he bypasses the jerks and their one sided, loaded questions that are designed just to make him look bad.

    Like I said, if he cured cancer they would report that he failed to cure Aids. They would probably report that he put thousands of cancer clinics and doctors out of work.

    Then the current press corps could be disbanded and
    one could be established that would adhere to the
    rules of decency and honesty.

    And I would make it no more than 24 people.
    I don't mind being called far right.
    I have been right so far.

    I hope they do walk out....won't miss any of them one bit. It's so blatantly obvious that all of them have a steep liberal bias. The news media stopped reporting the news years ago.

    Well, Trump has supposedly expanded the list of people who are on the persona non grata list by a few. Most of them are the ones who always ask the gotcha questions that have nothing to do with reporting what is going on...

    What is a gotcha question... "Mr. President, do you still beat your wife... just yes or no sir"....

    Yesterday on the radio, one caller noted back in the day that ABC News' Sam Donaldson would often bait President Reagan with gotcha questions, and that Sam was more of a Liberal...but the difference between then and now, is that Donaldson still respected Reagan despite the difference in their political beliefs, and wasn't out to destroy the President, as many of today's so-called press corps are trying to do.

    Well, the quick simple answer is to just not have press briefings. Trump has done this before by allowing private, one on one interviews with both NBC and FOX news. Of course, the ones with NBC were traps and everything that was said got twisted into anti Trump rhetoric labeling him as a white supremacist and a racist/sexist. About the only thing they did not accuse him of was of being a Pedophile.

    It reminded me of the interviews that democrats do with NBC ABC and CBS (never FOX mind you) and the real hardball questions are like what is your cats name and what is your favorite color. If a democrat says red it is fine... If Trump says red he is accused of being a Russia sympathizer and collusion.

    I would assign it to someone in the White House who is authorized to speak to the press.
    The mechanics of putting the list together should be pretty simple, though,
    simply eliminate, from the current list, anyone who has misbehaved by
    repeatedly asking gotcha questions or by talking out of turn, deliberately
    taking stuff out of context, or giving speeches and grandstanding.

    Then limit each news agency to two persons.

    CNN currently has more than 10 representatives, NBC has 5 plus 3 from CNBC and 1 from MSNBC.

    That would trim the size considerably.

    Oh, yes, and kick the White House Correspondents Association out,
    they are not doing what they say they are supposed to do.
