Two members of alt-right accused of making white supremacist hand signs in White House after receiving press passes. Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House. Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room.

“The first question went to Fox News, and Breitbart got to ask a question,” Sherman noted, “Are you concerned about getting access to Trump?” “I think the era of access journalism as we’ve known it is over,” Zucker warned as recalled that Trump had not done an interview with CNN in months, “I think our credibility is higher than ever, and our viewership is higher than ever, and our reporting is as strong as ever.” <<< Please support MRC's NewsBusters team with a tax-deductible contribution today.
