Default Trump has dinner with family, press upset they weren't invited

And this is the moronic headline...

As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016...ampaign=buffer

Quote:
In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going.

The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media.

The only way the press eventually ascertained his whereabouts was after a Bloomberg reporter, who happened to be dining at the 21 Club, tweeted a photo of Trump and some of his transition team in the Midtown steakhouse.

Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks later told NBC News. "He is having dinner with his family."

Wife Melania, daughter Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner, sons Donald Jr. and Eric Trump were all at the restaurant.

This came after Hicks had told his press pool the day had ended, and the only indication of his departure was an unannounced motorcade. Trump's communications team did not respond to emails from the pooler requesting guidance.

Already, the press is harder on Trump then they've ever been with Obama or Clinton.

The "liberal" media will be ruthless with Trump just as the "conservative" media was ruthless with Obama...

And the pendulum swings...

I used to flip between CNN, MSNBC and FOX when they would all be covering the same story, years ago -- haven't have cable in a while, and it is comical how they all differed. If MSNBC and FOX had a baby we would have an unbiased news channel.

Conservative media = Foxnews and....

Liberal media = all the rest... CNN, MSNBC, CBS, CNBC, ABC

So why shouldn't the media be non-partisan and hold ALL politicians feet equally to the fire... Isn't that what they all nominally strive for, in theory, not in practice.
