    So, since Russian media is state controlled, what do you want Trump to do if Sergey Lavrovs aids are the ones taking the pictures? Do you want Trump to force Sergey Lavrovs personal staff to stop talking pictures? Perhaps have SS tackle them to the ground, rip their cameras out of their hands and delete the photos, after they where invited? My god, with all this childish tantrums.

    You're overlooking the obvious ... why not allow the western press and photographers?

    How good does it look to do this when you're already under a cloud of suspicion?

    Yea, it must be an evil conspiracy, because he's probably colluding with them behind doors right now, right? If our media was in there perhaps they "could catch" him in the act and expose him? :rolleyes:

    I want him to allow US media into the room, at least one reporter and photographer. Or, I want him to impose the same rules on his visiting media as he does on US media. A no cameras policy is pretty easy to enforce. If there is a camera in the room, Trump doesn't come in.

    Wasn't he supposed to be some kind of master negotiator?

    Lets all be honest with ourselves, the only reason you probably want media in there is so they can later portray Trump in a negative light, or the hopes they overhear something damming, or photo a document that can later be used as ammunition against the president. The hole premise to this argument is malicious intent to begin with.

    Must @jkcerda choose one side of the other? Frankly I respect a man that can see both sides of the coin.

    Yet you would be wanting the same exact thing if it were the opposing party in office. So much for your advocation of the people's 1A right, especially when it is being used on taxpayer property.

    Trump doesn't need help being portrayed in a negative light, he has that covered. I want the US media in there because Russian media is in there.

    I probably would, but at least I'm honest about it.

    If a couple of aids taking a handful of pictures qualifies as media, then perhaps the WH staff can simply snap a few of their own. I really don't see the significance to this. It's not like he invited official Russian media in and not US press...

    Freedom of the PRESS. A member of the US government is refusing to allow the press to do their job. There is no national security implication or issue going on, as no press would be allowed if there were. So for Trump to not allow the press of his own country to be in attendance, 1A violation.

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/02/17/11-times-barack-obama-abused-press-freedom/

    "Here are 11 moments Obama abused the press:

    1. Campaign plane “hijacking” journalists. In 2008, the Obama campaign flew 25 members of the media to Chicago — without telling them then-Sen. Obama was not, in fact, on board. CNN reported: “[T]he press was essentially held hostage with no candidate and no choice but to fly to Chicago on a chartered plane.”

    2. Closing White House events to all but the official photographer. Obama barred the media from events — including, ironically, an award ceremony where he was recognized for “transparency” — and often restricted photographers’ access, only releasing images taken by the official White House photographer.

    3. Trying to shut out Fox News. The Obama administration targeted Fox News for isolation and marginalization, arguing that it was not a legitimate news organization but “the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party.” That served as a warning to other potentially critical outlets.

    4. Stonewalling FOIA requests. The Obama administration “set a record” for failing to provide information requested by the press and the public under the Freedom of Information Act. The low point was Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, where tens of thousands of emails were hidden on a private server and deleted.

    5. Prosecuting journalists and their sources. The Obama administration pursued Fox News reporter James Rosen’s private emails — then misled Congress about it. CNN’s Jake Tapper — to his credit — pointed out that Obama had used the Espionage Act against leakers more than all of his predecessors combined.

    6. Wiretapping the Associated Press. After the Obama administration’s snooping on the AP was exposed in 2013, a senior NBC correspondent excused President Obama on the grounds that he would not have been nasty enough to alienate “one of the president’s most important constituencies, the press.”

    7. Refusing to hold press conferences. For long stretches of his presidency, Obama refused to hold press conferences at all, going 10 months without a formal press conference in a critical stretch from 2009 to 2010. He heeled the lowest average annual number of press conferences of any president since Ronald Reagan.

    8. Filibustering at press conferences. When Obama did, finally, hold press conference, he often limited the number of questions by delivering long, rambling, often condescending answers. He “wastes reporters’ time by refraining from answering questions with any candor,” Jack Shafer complained in Politico in 2016.

    9. Attacking tough questions. When a Major Garrett of CBS actually asked a tough question — about why the administration seemed not to be trying hard to free Americans held by Iran, including Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian — Obama scolded him: “Major, that’s nonsense, and you should know better.”

    10. Appearing on fringe outlets. While media elites gripe about conservative journalists being given a chance, Obama often restricted his appearances to fringe media: Inside Edition; Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns (which was then nominated for an Emmy); YouTube stars; and a radio show called “Pimp with a Limp.”

    11. Iran deal “echo chamber.” The Obama administration created “fake news” to support the Iran deal, setting up what it later boasted was an “echo chamber” of “experts” who would comment in the media to support the White House narrative on the negotiations. Meanwhile, key details were hidden from the public.

    Through it all, President Obama regarded himself as a champion of press freedom, having run the “most transparent administration ever.”

    Many mainstream media journalists ignored the Obama administration’s abuses. A few spoke out against them. But most of them continued to paint him in glowing terms, regardless."
