In response to CNN’s filing of a law suit against the Trump administration seeking the reinstatement of its White House reporter’s press credentials

The News Media Alliance stands in full support of CNN’s defense of its First Amendment rights. We need quality journalism – now more than ever – from respected news organizations employing professional journalists who will hold those in positions of power accountable. We commend CNN for not allowing the Trump administration to intimidate them by threatening the very rights on which our nation was founded, and which ensure the preservation of a strong democratic society.
