Secretary of State Rex Tillerson briefed the media in Saudi Arabia on Sunday without members of the American press in attendance.

Tillerson held the press conference with the Saudi foreign minister, Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, but it appeared that only foreign reporters were present. Journalists from the United States were left scrambling to figure out what happened.

The State Department later apologized, adding that it couldn't notify the press in time.

Really? Was this an impromptu meeting?
A White House official said Tillerson was invited to participate in the press conference at the last minute.
Why aren't they with him everywhere he goes? How did other countries' media find out about it?

If these events where the US press is excluded continue, I hope to god they stop acting as the official White House proganda arm.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
