Question for Jake Tapper: doesn’t the White House, as a normal matter of course, issue press credentials which require the holder to be a part of a legitimate news organization, and as a part of that process, hasn’t the White House been engaged in the process of determining what is and isn’t a legitimate news organization for decades?

I understand that this is supposed to be hard-hitting news, but perhaps a man sitting in a small room with selected reporters from news organizations around the world who underwent Secret Service screening should not be attacking the insidious opinioneering of the White House on what constitutes a news organization.
