The media is freaking out over the fact that Trump and his team are calling on conservative media outlets in these pressers.
Here’s a few tweets:
Trump has taken Qs from 4 U.S. outlets his 2 most recent pressers:
-Christian Broadcasting Network
-ABC 7 Washington

Trump has so far called on Christian Broadcasting Network and Townhall—he's only called on conservative outlets for last three pressers.

Town Hall and Christian Broadcasting Network.

Next question just went to Town Hall – the conservative website. Reminder, first question went to the Christian Broadcasting Network.

So — the two reporters called on today: Christian Broadcasting Network and Town Hall. No question on Trump/Russia contacts.

Katie Pavlich responded to the criticism from Jon Karl:

Conservative media has taken a backseat to the MSM for a long time, so I think it’s great that Trump and his team are allowing them to not only come to the table, but to ask questions as well.
MSMers like Jon Karl and Katy Tur will quite simply have to get over it, at least for the next four years.
UPDATE: Here’s more:

CNN seriously doesn't get how they are proving every single bad cliche people think of them as by labeling them this. https://t.co/tNj2uRmx2f

@redsteeze His first question was from CBN. Since when is that a right wing outlet only?
