The New York Post’s Page Six is reporting that One of Trump’s Press Secretary candidates was for forcing the journalists that cover him to to submit to random drug testing.
“Journalists who are at the White House more than one day per week should be subject to drug screenings to occur no more than twice a year at random times,” the memo states. “Refusal to comply should exclude them from credentialing entirely.”
The applicant also proposed taking away the White House Correspondents’ Association’s right to choose seating arrangements for reporters in the briefing room.
The current seating arrangement favors certain newspapers and TV networks over more ideologically diverse outlets.
The applicant also wrote that the Trump administration “should clear a path to communicate more directly with the people and end White House press practices that serve no useful purpose other than feeding the beast.”
