The White House is coming under intense, bipartisan criticism for issuing press credentials to TruNews — a far-right outlet which has a history of blatant anti-Semitism.
In footage flagged by Right Wing Watch, TruNews founder Rick Wiles — along with correspondents Doc Burkhart and Edward Szall — was seen broadcasting live from Davos, Switzerland, site of the World Economic Fourm. CNN's Jake Tapper confirmed that TruNews was credentialed by the White House.
