WH press corps shows unity after reporter barred from Rose Garden event

Shep Smith responds to White House version of ‘disinvite’ of CNN reporter

On Wednesday, after the White House accused Collins of shouting questions and refusing to leave the Oval Office, other reporters spoke up in her defense, saying she was completely in line with protocol.

"It's still kind of doing the old-fashioned notion of reporter with some kind of objectivity. and I think that drives the president absolutely insane", added Thompson, from the SI Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

"Civility", Smith said. "CNN maintains, the Correspondence Association agrees, and we at Fox News observe that Collins was civil, that she asked relevant and timely questions of a president who often answers questions under identical circumstances and in the same setting".

CNN president Jeff Zucker was previously at NBC Universal, the man who green-lighted reality show The Apprentice that turned Trump into a household name, ultimately paving the way for his successful run as president.

31 people dead after Pakistan polling station explosion
Results will start trickling in within hours, and the likely victor should be known by around 2:00am on Thursday. Hashim Ghilza, a local administration official, said the bomber tried to enter a polling station.

White House staff at one point shouted at reporters to leave the room.

Smith laid out the response from the White House to a torrent of criticism from journalists after they banned Collins Wednesday from an announcement from the president in the Rose Garden at the White House.

The decision was announced by the White House press shop on a day when reporters and correspondents made their way to the building in hopes of getting the president to spout off on simmering issues, from Russian Federation to his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen. "The idea that there is a delicate decorum- that's not how we conduct ourselves in this White House", Tapper told Stephen Colbert.

The network's chief political anchor Bret Baier also took the White House to task for banning Collins.

Fred could be an important player for us, but let's wait - Mourinho
How Mourinho would react to the club going against his wishes is unclear, though it would be no surprise if the 55-year-old voiced disquiet.

CNN, in a statement, objected to the move, calling it "retaliatory in nature" and "not indicative of an open and free press".

What's new is Trump's engagement - he's answered questions on everything from his alleged former mistress Stormy Daniels to Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election during these brief media hits. "This type of retaliation is wholly inappropriate, wrong-headed, and weak".

"For those of you at home, if I may, journalists are not the enemies of the people", Smith said.

"Bill Shine, full disclosure, is my personal friend", Smith said Thursday during his show "Shepard Smith Reporting". "It can not stand", said the group's president, Olivier Knox.

Trump's approval rating edged higher during week of Putin summit

Hala Gorani, an anchor for CNN International, reacted to the fracas by tweeting, "I've reported from many countries where reporters are banned from press events for not asking softball questions and the last thing I expected was for it to happen in the United States".
