To coordinate coverage of Donald Trump's trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the White House provided press passes to the usual mix of American news organisations, including Fox News, Reuters and The New York Times.

One media outlet stood out: TruNews, a website aimed at conservative Christians whose founder, a pastor named Rick Wiles, recently described Mr Trump's impeachment as "a Jew coup" planned by "a Jewish cabal".

Five employees of TruNews, which is based in Florida, received formal credentials from the White House to cover the president's trip, Mr Wiles said in an interview last week from his hotel room in Switzerland – a room in a ski lodge reserved by the Trump administration for travelling members of the American press. (Like other media organisations, TruNews paid for its flights and lodging.)
