Hadas Gold reports in Politico that President Trump will welcome members of the conservative media for a small reception at the White House on Monday: “Among those attending: One America News Network, The Daily Caller and Breitbart, as well as some columnists and talk radio hosts.” If all goes according to plan, Power Line will be represented there too and I will have more later. The occasion of the reception, as I understand it, is the completion of Trump’s first 100 days in office.
Gold quotes Sean Spicer: “We’ve definitely done our fair share of meetings with mainstream reporters. Once in a while it’s important to appreciate the folks who have really covered the president fairly and covered a lot of issues ignored by mainstream media.”
As we round into our fifteenth anniversary online next month, I think it’s fair to say that we have aspired to cover the president fairly and have certainly covered a lot of issues ignored by the mainstream media. But I would concede that I’m not an impartial judge of our virtues.
