President Donald Trump floats taking away 'fake news' media's credentials

He asked why the White House works with the media "when it is corrupt", adding, with a question mark: "Take away credentials?".

Early in the Administration, former Press Secretary Sean Spicer was accused of barring reporters from certain outlets from a briefing in early 2017, just hours after the President had slammed the press.

Those last three words are likely to rankle many in the press, and in particular the White House Correspondents' Association.

Despite the president's criticism of news coverage, the White House's press office has continued to hold media briefings.

"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 went on to state that it is the responsibility of a free press to report on everything that is happening, whether good or bad, from the important to the mundane. "And a president preventing a free and independent press from covering the workings of our republic would be an unconscionable assault on the First Amendment".

During the presidential campaign, Trump's team barred the Washington Post and other news outlets from campaign events, after the candidate expressed anger at the news organization's coverage.

But there was also a major tell in Trump's tweet.

"No one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald", Obama quipped, as Trump scowled in his seat.

"The Media Research Center studied all broadcast evening news coverage of the President from January 1 through April 30, and found 90 percent of the evaluative comments about Trump were negative".

The Fake News is working overtime. He has generally viewed most news coverage as unfair and talked about taking retaliatory measures against journalists.

The tweet from Trump, perhaps predictably, came just after a segment about the study on the president's favored morning show Fox & Friends, which he often seems to live-tweet.
