One of the steps

look up the steps a dictator takes to assume power.

1 of them on any list will be taking over the press.


The Environmental Protection Agency is barring The Associated Press, CNN and the environmental-focused news organization E&E from a national summit on harmful water contaminants.

The EPA blocked the news organizations from attending Tuesday’s Washington meeting, convened by EPA chief Scott Pruitt.

EPA spokesman Jahan Wilcox told the barred organizations they were not invited and there was no space for them, but gave no indication of why they specifically were barred.

Pruitt told about 200 people at the meeting that dealing with the contaminants is a “national priority.”

Guards barred an AP reporter from passing through a security checkpoint inside the building. When the reporter asked to speak to an EPA public-affairs person, the security guards grabbed the reporter by the shoulders and shoved her forcibly out of the EPA building.


No need to bar the ones that tell the governments side of the story so I guess the press to follow would be those who are getting barred since they obviously are getting the true facts out that hurt the government.


Sad situation that the 'democracy' that is held up as an example all around the world has come to this.
