Chanel Rion, Chief White House Correspondent for One America News Network (OAN), announced Thursday the creation of a new national press organization for unbiased coverage of White House related news. The National White House Correspondents Association (NWHCA) has begun accepting applications by invitation only, according to a press release.
"Rion’s NWHCA is seeking shared control of the White House briefing room and all other delegated press functions with the 117-year-old WHCA in order to restore balance to White House reporting which at present, largely amounts to a confederation of journalists with long socialist agendas and deep links to the Democrat Party," the press release stated.
“The NWHCA seeks to restore balance and diversity of viewpoints in White House news coverage. The American public is served best when all voices are heard and the President’s message is unfiltered. According to Rion, the WHCA has maneuvered almost all balance and diversity out of the White House correspondents’ pool and briefing room demonstrating daily that they consider America’s free press the exclusive property of the “progressive” reformers of Washington. This is not representative of free and balanced press.”

1) Today @ChanelRion, the Chief White House Correspondent for @OANN, formed a new White House Correspondents Association. The present associate would not let anyone join that did not fit their narrative.— Robert Herring (@RobHerring) August 20, 2020
3) Hopefully, we can get REAL news (@OANN) out to the American people rather than listening to reporters who are doing everything they can to make the President look like a liar.— Robert Herring (@RobHerring) August 20, 2020
We strongly support @ChanelRion.
The WHPA is a progressive "old boys club" that controls the news coming from the White House instead of simply reporting it.@ChanelRion just launched the National White House Correspondents Association to compete with the 117-yo group. @kayleighmcenany https://t.co/lvd8C6T899— JD Rucker (@JDRucker) August 20, 2020
