In what has become the seemingly never-ending war between President Trump and CNN, another shot has been fired. CNN has told Politico that they will be boycotting this year’s White House Christmas party. “CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.” This prompted White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to tweet.

The White House Christmas party is, in general, a low key affair that allows members of the media to interact with administration officials off the record. The relationship between the president and CNN has become so toxic that a gathering like this could be ruined for all if CNN came. With the relationship between CNN and the administration being what it is, is CNN right to boycott the party?
