The President v The Press

(BBC Newsnight, 2017)

It's the fourth week of the Trump administration, and Trump has declared war on the "mainstream media", labelling them the "enemies of the people".

Filmed, edited and broadcast in two weeks, this short film goes behind the scenes at the White House briefing room to see how an embattled White House press corps is coming to terms with a very new kind of president.  

Broadcast on BBC Newsnight, then internationally on BBC World.
