Who gets to decide the legitimacy of the media?

Recently, newly elected U.S. President Donald Trump has been questioning and bashing the media for its reporting of his administration.

Trump calls the media that has done its job by asking the hard questions “fake news.”

Just this past week, the White House barred The New York Times and CNN from press briefings.

I don’t know about you, but I find Trump’s criticism and excluding media outlets from briefings alarming.
