- TRUMP and WHCA ban legitimate media from inauguration.
WASHINGTON, DC (Herald de Paris) — The Trump Transition Team and White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) have effectively banned and denied long-standing select legitimate White House Correspondents and media agencies from covering the inauguration, and the first days at least of the incoming administration.
It seems that everything is business as usual in DC where the swamp is far from being drained it is actually being made embraced. It is the American people and permanent American residents who get hurt .
How have the WHCA and White House done this?
In an email released yesterday by the WHCA , the WHCA and the White House have denied entry to all but journalists who hold existing hard passes – permanent access to the White House. Who grants these hard passes? Nobody knows, exactly, but the decision seems to reside between the White House, the White House Press Office, and the WHCA, itself.
Yesterday’s decision denies legitimate news outlets, journalists, photographers, and videographers – some of whom have been cleared to cover the White House on a daily basis on day passes for months, even years without a hard pass – the opportunity to cover the inauguration and first few days of the incoming administration and … (CONTINUED.

- President Gabrielle Carteris of SAG-AFTRA has tough words for IMDB
HOLLYWOOD (Herald de Paris) — Since of January 1, 2017, IMDB – (The Internet Movie Data Base) has been required by law to remove subscribers’ date of birth information, upon request. However, IMDB has not been doing so. The President of the Screen Actors Guild, Gabrielle Carteris, retaliated by sending a message to SAG’s entire membership today, chiding IMDB by calling them, “Stubborn,” and threatening legal recourse.

- Who owns the land at Standing Rock? The top thing to know about DAPL
STANDING ROCK SIOUX TERRITORY (Herald de Paris) — US Army veterans numbering in the hundreds have been filtering onto the snow-swept plains at the construction site of the Dakota Access Pipeline, intent on shielding the Native American protesters from the militarized police. At issue are historically sensitive native lands, the rights of Indian Nations, and for the traditional inhabitants of this land, sacred sites and the protection of their fresh water source.
Since the beginning of the stand-off, others have joined the protest in numbers that swell daily. While it seems clear that all those opposing the US Army Corps of Engineers are in favor of the rights of the Standing Rock Sioux protecting their historical lands and their water, how we arrived at this point continues to be muddled by the fast-evolving human interest aspects of the story.
Rather than to scratch the surface on this issue, we went all the way back to the beginning. Consulting with professional subject matter experts in cultural resources, archaeology, anthropology, and even environmental regulations, we have uncovered the core issues – issues key to ending this standoff before anyone gets killed.
