In light of the increasing attacks on President Trump and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders by media sources, have you thought about the importance of the Christian media at the White House in light of a new President? It is something to take serious with a flurry of accusations of ‘Fake news’ from President Trump and his administration. Along with many disillusioned voters, the evangelical Christian voters are concerned about having access to credible news. This is also a concern for Mr. Dinesh D’Souza in his recent documentary now out in theaters titled ‘Death of A Nation,’ wherein he is calling on President Trump to follow President Lincoln’s example in the middle of a national crisis. Read President Lincoln’s proclamation wherein lies the solution to solving our national crisis at the following link:

White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci commented on the ‘Fake news’ problem Friday July 21, 2017 at the White House in a daily briefing and addressed the challenge for President Trump to get his message out clearly to Americans. This gives rise of opportunity for President Trump to reach out more to members of the Christian media to share his message. Oddly enough though, there is not a significant daily group of Christian media present at the White House for President Trump to reach out to, therein lies a key problem. The question becomes, how do we get a good Christian media representation at White House press meetings? A good answer to this question to consider is prayer and financial support for the Christian media to have their offices located in Washington, D.C. supporting their daily trek to White House press meetings.

In my experience as a White House reporter, rarely do I witness other Christian media being called on during press conferences to ask a question. There is no rotation of Christian media presence, especially on the front row of the James Brady Press room, and Christians could ask, ‘Why is that?’ Now with President Trump’s conflict with getting out his message through the traditional news outlets, it might be good for him to consider reaching out now more to more credible news reporting outlets such as the Christian media and other news media that helped him get elected. The ‘Fake news’ sources are unlikely to be reformed.
‘Fake news’ that is misleading to some is not ‘Fake news’ to another. With a growing distrust in traditional news and other institutions, a migration to alternative news and social media flourishes.

According to Andrew Klavan (2017), "mainstream American news is ALL fake because the major news outlets are so consistently biased toward the left." (1) ‘Fake news’ is definitely not something new.

From a Christian perspective, ‘Fake news’ definition could even be expanded to include those news sources that do not support our Judeo/Christian values.

I have witnessed a lot of disrespect of other reporters for President Trump and his press secretaries and their confrontations with news reporters regarding ‘Fake news.’ You can feel the tension and hostility of some of the press against President Trump. And one good way to diffuse this tension is by calling on more Christian reporters and other news sources.

Please pray for me and others of the Christian media for favor in being called on to ask questions and have interviews with President Trump, Vice President Pence, other White House officials and other world leaders.
