Trump Threatens To Revoke Media Credentials Over Fake News

President Trump speaks to members of the media

Exhausted of negative coverage, US President Donald Trump hinted Wednesday that he was ready to take his battles with the news media a step further by revoking journalists' credentials.

No, not "you're fired!" or "If Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her", but "Fake News". Trump went on to ask, adding: "Take away credentials?".

They published a new study about mainstream media coverage of Trump. However, his White House has never denied credentials to news outlets.

"There's no precedent for a president receiving such a sustained level of negative press over such a long period of time", Mr. Noyes said.

Talev explained that part of having a free press is allowing people to report on the news whether it's good or bad, momentous or mundane, without "fear or favor". "Presenting an honest portrait of elected leaders", read an article on Wednesday, "even - and especially - against their will is, of course, why the First Amendment to the Constitution cements the role of a free press". CNN has also been a regular target of Trump's outrage, and the president refused to field questions from the network's Jim Acosta on several occasions.

"No one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald", Obama quipped, as Trump scowled in his seat. During an interview with Anderson Cooper, the attorney who broke the news on Tuesday evening about the $500,000 payments to Trump's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, raised the possibility that some of the Russian money may ultimately have been funneled through Cohen to the Trump Organization.

What's more, barring reporters because of coverage could cross a legal line.

While Trump's tweet teased the idea, the association's president explained the severe reflection on the president if the idea were to come to fruition.
