White House Press
Petition to Donald Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Incoming White House Communications Director, Chief of Staff John Kelly
Remove CNN and Jim Acosta from The White House Press Corps for their continued disturbance
The Narrative Times, a non-profit, is calling on The White House to block White House Correspondent Jim Acosta and any member of the CNN Staff from The White House for the continued disturbances during the press briefings. Their lack of respect causes the following problems: The White House is unable to communicate their message to reporters. The White House is unable to communicate their message to the American People effectively. Shows CNN and Mr. Acosta's continued lack of respect for the office. Notice I said office and not the president. When you are in The White House there is a certain level of decorum that is expected. The solution to the problem is to remove Mr. Acosta and all CNN reporters. If they would like to invoke their right to free speech that can do so from outside The White House Gates. The unnecessary political arguments and commentations make the briefings less professional and frankly that American People are tired of the lack of professionalism on CNN's part.

Petition to Jeff Mason, Julia Whiston
Invite all former U.S. presidents to White House Correspondents' Dinner to support press.
Journalists play a crucial role when it comes to democracy and preventing tyranny. Without the press, Americans are unable to learn what's happening behind closed doors, prevent abuse of power, and hold elected leaders accountable. Our founding fathers made sure that the media's rights are protected so that the power stays with the people and not with a monarch or a dictator. Yet President Donald Trump is taking the unprecedented action of keeping journalists out of press briefings, keeping them from covering official state visits, and labeling any negative media coverage of him or his administration as "fake news." He tweeted on February 25 that he would not attend this year's White House correspondents' dinner. I propose all former U.S. presidents attend in solidarity with the press and in support of their first amendment rights. Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama should come together on April 29 to attend this annual event.
Petition to All Credentialed Press Organizations
To the Press Corps: Boycott White House Press Briefings until Trump Restores Full Access
The New York Times, CNN and Politico were prohibited from attending a briefing with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on February 24, 2017. Spicer excluded them in favor of news organizations which have reported favorably on the Administration, a chilling change to Presidential press protocol. Freedom of the Press is a Constitutional right. Americans consider the restriction of any news organization from traditional White House meetings and briefings an abuse of tradition and power by the President of the United States. We call on all American and International News Organizations to boycott White House press briefings until full access is restored for these news organizations.
