The BBC - along with several other media outlets - was refused access to the latest White House briefing by Sean 'Spicy' Spicer and is now seeking 'clarification':
The BBC's Head of Newsgathering, Jonathan Munro, tweets:
In other news, Jon Sopel tweeted the following yesterday:
- It *is* the Russian flag......
- Similar? Do you know what a Russian flag looks like @BBCJonSopel?
- That must be a setup, no?
- Handed out by Huff Post journo I hear. No wonder Trump doesn't want @BBCNews in his press briefings.
The story behind it is reported here. Russian flags were handed out to the crowd by "a political prankster". The organisers of the conference then confiscated the flags.
