New White House Rules: Reporters Can be Kicked Out If Not “Professional”

From a Washington Post story by Paul Farhi headlined “New White House rules: Reporters can be kicked out if not ‘professional.'”:

The White House has proposed new rules to determine who qualifies for access to its press briefing room on a regular basis — and who can be thrown out for behavior officials determine isn’t “professional.”

The rules represent the Biden White House’s attempt to establish a code of conduct to avoid the legal jeopardy that the Trump administration ran into when it banished CNN reporter Jim Acosta and journalist Brian Karem from the White House complex in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
