CNN’s Jake Tapper Goes Nuts About Tillerson’s Decision To Ditch The Press From His Trip To Asia

The news media doesn’t get it, a paradigm shift has occurred in their industry. They are no longer as necessary as they might think.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will make his first trip to Asia next week. He will arrive in Japan on March 15, travel to South Korea on March 17 and visit China on March 18-19. While he’s there, the secretary is slated to discuss North Korea’s recent missile tests and the United States’ economic and national security interests in the region.

Tillerson will reportedly travel to Asia next week without any press, and as it turns out the U.S. press corp is furious about this decision. Mainstream media is flailing at being ignored and wrote Tillerson a letter asking him to consider permitting a small pool of reporters to accompany him.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper was also not so happy about Tillerson decision and wrote his complaint on twitter:

According to Jake Tapper, Tillerson decision  to ditch the traveling press on his upcoming trip to Asia is “unusual and insulting.”

Frustration has been growing within many news organizations for their perceived lack of access to the secretary of state.

Washington, D.C., bureau chiefs from a number of major news organizations sent a letter to the State Department on Tuesday requesting Tillerson to consider allowing a small group of reporters to accompany him on the trip.

“We were deeply concerned to hear that Secretary Tillerson plans to travel to Beijing, Seoul and Tokyo to hold key meetings about some of the most important foreign policy issues for the United States without any traveling press,” read the letter signed by a dozen news organizations, including The Associate Press, The New York Times, NPR, CNN, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal.

Wise move Rex. These days, you can’t trust anybody anymore, especially reporters who tried to demean the President and his cabinet members but still, want full access to continuing their attacks.
I guess this is what they get for carrying water for arguably the most Un-American and treasonous President in history and making things up about the current one who is all about the Americans people and improving America. This is is what they deserve.
