The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and Politico were also excluded from the meeting, which is known as a gaggle and is less formal than the televised Q-and-A session in the White House briefing room.
The Associated Press and Time magazine boycotted the briefing because of how it was handled. The White House Correspondents Association is protesting.
The conservative media organizations Breitbart News, The Washington Times and One America News Network were allowed in.
Opposing views reporting on the government should be welcomed. Shutting down access to news organization, even those clearly biased and anti-Trump. is a very slippery slope.
What should we expect next from this authoritarian administration?
Note: At CPAC today, President Trump said that reporters "shouldn't be allowed" to use unnamed sources.
