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.

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.

Good for him ! If the press thinks this is insulting they are more stupid than I thought.
After their behavior during election and after I would not let them go on trips or even have press conferences. They are spreading fear and are dividing country. Just like no matter how many people or who they are tells them their is no evidence of Trump and Russia they ignore and keep putting their spin on it. They are the enemy of this country and should be ashamed . They are putting there options before country.

The American press carrying a liberal and bias agenda deserve to be side lined; there or not they will distort the news attempting to undermine and ridicule the administration.

The Media by going to the far left politically made it impossible for them to go with the Secretary. He needs support not fake news. The Media needs to go back to the center, politically, they need to report news not MAKE NEWS.

SInce when is the Press part of the Government and the system of checks and balances. The checks and balances system works between the Congress, the President, and the Judicial, NOT the Press. And since the Press seems to think they can make up the news or create it to be the way they want it, there is no checks and balance.

The egotist reporters are slowly losing their high-esteem views of themselves. until they learn that their job is to report honestly and fairly, every action of the administration will remain “pressless.” Hey, pressless, i like that. the administration will continue to remain “press-less.”

I have never seen a president more disrespected and mocked by the media in general than Trump; even though he works so hard to protect the country, the borders, start up the job creation machinery, give confidence to investors and increase the market exchange of stocks; and that is only the beginning.
The press should change the way they treat him: if he does wrong, by all means inform objectively, but cease insults, inert opposition, information without sources, fake news, mistreatment; this is the President of the United States for Christ’s sakes!!

No take them all , just don’t tell them its a one way ticket, then they can’t bother us for awhile, take a few of those Hollywood characters while your at it. That will be a great message we won’t tolerate terrorists at any level and will be deported. Imagine how much disruption Rosie can do? Try will be begging we don’t send Justin Bieber over to sign for them. Go ahead interrogate Gorgeous George Loony, he doesn’t know who is running the country, even or odd days, remember when he told President Trump to run the country and he wasn’t sworn in yet? By the time they figure out the journalists and the Hollywood elite, they will have infiltrated their counties had so many dumb children their countries will have collapsed from within. Call me Rex, glad to help

Most of the media is so liberal and make up things I do not believe a thing they have to say. M.S.N.B.C. and C.N.N. should be put of the air.

It is about time people like Rex put the government in front f some pencil jockey hearing a word and writing an article bout it that couldn’t be farther from the truth. These ‘journalists” constantly try to out do one another with a lead story and do so at the peril of the Government employee they are covering. Better they fly on All Nipon, Delta or some other airline other than “The United States of America” aircraft.

Can,t stand CNN. There is always an agenda with their news. Always suspicious and derogratory towards Trump. Jake Tapper must be the worst and a close second Anderson Cooper. Egotistical pr-cks.
