June 9, 2017, 2:35pm: "The White House has put the New York Times in the last row at today's joint press conference with Trump and Romania's president." Gabby Morrongiello @gabriellahope, Washington Bureau chief of NY Post

6/9/17, "CNN, NYT Reporters Whine After Trump WH Relegates Them to ‘Siberia’ Section," Breitbart, Tony Lee 

"On Friday, mainstream media reporters from the New York Times and CNN whined after President Donald Trump’s White House relegated them to the rear of the Rose Garden during Trump’s press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis....

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said it was “outrageous.” And Acosta, mustering up the courage mainstream media reporters never found while Barack Obama was president, said the poor seating assignments are “not going to deter us from what we’re doing over here.”...

The New York Times was sent to the very last row a day after former FBI director James Comey revealed on Thursday while testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee that the Times published a fake news story in February suggesting that Trump’s campaign had colluded with Russians a year before the 2016 election.

In the main, it was not true,” Comey said of the story, which was based on four anonymous sources. “And again, all of you know this. Maybe the American people don’t. The challenge, and I’m not picking on reporters about writing stories about classified information, is the people talking about it often don’t really know what’s going on....We don’t call the press to say, hey, you don’t that thing wrong about the sensitive topic. We have to leave it there.”

In addition to the Times’ “fake news” story, Comey also revealed that there have been "many, many" stories in the mainstream press about the Trump campaign and Russia that have been "dead wrong.""
