RSF condemns Trump’s revocation of Washington Post’s press credentials

first_img Receive email alerts Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says United StatesAmericas PredatorsFreedom of expression Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) strongly condemns Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s decision to revoke The Washington Post’s press credentials and sees it as a serious violation of freedom of the press. WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en April 28, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on United States Help by sharing this information News News News June 7, 2021 Find out more United StatesAmericas PredatorsFreedom of expression to go further News Donald Trump, the Republican party nominee for the 2016 United States Presidential election, proclaimed this afternoon on Facebook and Twitter that “based on the incredibly inaccurate coverage and reporting of the record setting Trump campaign, we are hereby revoking the press credentials of the phony and dishonest Washington Post.” Trump himself indicated that the decision came after he disagreed with a Washington Post article with the headline “Donald Trump seems to connect President Obama to Orlando Shooting.” “RSF strongly and unequivocally condemns this latest act of hostility toward the press as a serious violation of press freedom,” said Delphine Halgand, RSF USA’s Director. “How, in the country of the First Amendment, can the Republican party’s nominee for President justify revoking press credentials for one of the country’s major newspapers?” Marty Baron, Executive Editor of The Washington Post, responded to Trump’s decision in a comment: “[this] is nothing less than a repudiation of the role of a free and independent press. When coverage doesn’t correspond to what the candidate wants it to be, then a news organization is banished. The Post will continue to cover Donald Trump as it has all along – honorably, honestly, accurately, energetically, and unflinchingly. We’re proud of our coverage, and we’re going to keep at it.” RSF could not agree with him more. This is the latest incident where Donald Trump and his campaign have made clear his disregard for freedom of the press. Previously, Donald Trump’s team has restricted media access to campaign events, he has insulted and bullied reporters who portray him negatively or ask him tough questions, and refused to participate in a republican debate because FoxNews refused to remove its reporter Megyn Kelly as a moderator. Trump’s actions during the run up to the 2016 presidential election mark an alarming trend of curtailing freedom of the press in the United States. The U.S. ranks 41 out of 180 countries on RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Irish tourists encouraged to explore West Limerick

first_imgNewsLocal NewsIrish tourists encouraged to explore West LimerickBy Alan Jacques – September 3, 2014 1014 Print Advertisement Previous articleCouncillor fined for using mobile while drivingNext articleLimerick’s visual arts and galleries Alan Jacques WhatsApp Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring TD,MINISTER of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring TD, has launched a new 52-page booklet, which encourages visitors to Ireland to explore West Limerick.The publication, which was created by West Limerick Tourism with the support of West Limerick Resources, has been produced to encourage visitors to the area to step out and explore one of Ireland’s best kept secrets.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking at the launch, Deputy Ring commented, “I am delighted to be here to launch the new Explore West Limerick visitor guide. These guides provide a great offering for tourists looking to explore the different elements of our towns and cities.”“Bringing all the elements of the local tourist offering together is key to attracting more visitors to the less well known attractions, and ensuring that they stay a little longer and experience more of our well known culture and heritage,” he added.The guide, which is available in hard-copy and on-line, features a wide range of things to do, including a number of little known gems such as Saturday night ballroom dancing at Knockaderry Community Centre and a Spiritual Garden of Remembrance created around a seven-circuit labyrinth hidden away behind St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, Askeaton. It also tells the story of the region’s rich history, spectacular scenery, great outdoors, glorious gardens, food and culture and highlights the towns and villages of Abbeyfeale, Adare, Askeaton, Foynes, Glin, Newcastle West and Rathkeale.West Limerick Tourism chairperson Elaine Davidson said that the production of the visitor guide is the single most important thing the group has worked on this year.“West Limerick attracts upwards of 250,000 visitors a year and, to date, there has been little information available for those who would like to explore beyond Adare,” she said.“The visitor guide is part of our strategy to raise the profile of the region and show people that a wonderful welcome awaits. We know that we have a world-class tourism product that offers something for everyone, no matter what their interests are,” Ms Davidson enthused.The Explore West Limerick guide is available to download at TAGSExplore West Limerick guidelimerickMichael Ring TDMINISTER of State for Tourism and SportWest Limerick Tourism Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories center_img Facebook Email WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Twitter Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Linkedin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more
