CNN reporters stated their intention to boycott the Christmas Party at the White House; according to the statement released by Politico, they refuse to celebrate with the leader whose policy includes assault on the media freedom and specifically CNN.  

'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,' the statement says.

The White House praised the TV channel’s stance.

Earlier, Trump slammed CNN for creating an international image of the U.S., which he considered ‘not good enough’. According to Trump, CNN is ‘far more popular abroad than at home’.
