Reporter who engaged in alleged disrespectful behavior with former official loses White House access for a few days
A reporter says the White House suspended his credentials, calling it an ‘attempt to stifle the free press’I disagree with Karem. I think what the White Hosue expects is the media to treat those in the White House with respect whether they are a guest or work there. From what I read of the confrontation Karem failed that standard. There seems to be an element in the media that believes because they have a political disagreement with the Trump administration they are permitted to be a jerk.
Brian Karem, who covers the White House for Playboy, says he was told he was suspended for 30 days for a Rose Garden confrontation with former administration official Sebastian Gorka.
