From CNN’s Sara Murray, Jeremy Diamond and Kevin Liptak:
The White House handpicked select news organizations, beyond the pool, to attend Friday’s gaggle with Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
CNN was not permitted to attend, along with the New York Times, Politico, Buzzfeed, and much of the foreign press that regularly attends White House briefings.
NBC, ABC, and FOX were allowed in, along with CBS, who is Friday’s pool network. Breitbart, Washington Times, One America News Network were also allowed to attend.
The Associated Press and Time boycotted the gaggle.
There has been no explanation yet from the White House.
