Talev went on to state that it is the responsibility of a free press to report on everything that is happening, whether good or bad, from the important to the mundane. "Presenting an honest portrait of elected leaders", read an article on Wednesday, "even - and especially - against their will is, of course, why the First Amendment to the Constitution cements the role of a free press".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, insisted the administration is "very committed to a free press" and demonstrates that with near-daily briefings and access to the president.
