White House Correspondents’ Association

The White House Correspondents’ Association is deeply concerned by President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to reject the practice of traveling with a “protective pool” of reporters for his first visit to Washington since the election. In addition to breaking with decades of historical precedent and First Amendment principles, this decision could leave Americans blind about his whereabouts and well-being in the event of a national crisis. A pool of reporters is in place and ready to cover President-elect Trump. The WHCA urges President-elect Trump to allow it to do its job, including being present for motorcade movements, meetings, and other interactions. Not allowing a pool of journalists to travel with and cover the next president of the United States is unacceptable.

-Jeff Mason, WHCA president

 

Note to Jeff:  Not reporting the truth, the whole truth, and noting but the truth is unacceptable.  Social Media is replacing Traditional Media because We The People are truth seekers.
