From ASNE president: We disagree with White House's barring of CNN reporter from open press event

"The First Amendment consigned in the Constitution protects the right of the press to ask questions, especially to public officials that were elected by the people to serve truth and the people," said ASNE President Alfredo Carbajal, managing editor of Al Día at The Dallas Morning News. "At ASNE, we express our strong disagreement with the White House press staff for barring a CNN reporter (or any other journalists) to participate in media briefings, including questioning the president."
