Member of the Federation Council A K Pushkov warned of the dangers of “an Informational Civil War” in the USA. There’s now a situation where the White House doesn’t want to brief a number of journalists, and in response, other media outlets boycott events. On Friday, the White House announced that instead of a regular scheduled briefing, there’d be a “no cameras” briefing from official spokesman Sean Spicer. There’d be no live broadcasting, but everybody assumed that all White House-accredited journalists would be able to attend. However, then, according to CNN, the White House media office only invited selected journalists for the briefing, excluding CNN, the New York Times, Politico, the Los Angeles Times, “and other media”. The AP and Time magazine boycotted the event in protest. Aleksei Konstantinovich wrote in his Twitter microblog:

Aggression in the liberal media against Trump and the response of the administration (refusal of access) is unprecedented. It could lead to an informational civil war in the USA.
