CNNMoney created the following  "blacklist" of media banned by Trump:

  • Univision - Trump filed a lawsuit filed against the Spanish-language channel after it cancelled the broadcast of his Miss USA Pageant.
  • Buzzfeed - Perhaps stemming from a 2014 profile of Trump that infuriated the former reality TV star.
  • Politico - Back in March, reporter Ben Schreckinger was denied entry to a Trump press conference with no explanation, but Schreckinger recently wrote a story about the temperament of Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.
  • The Daily Beast - Experiencing what they call “a slow rolling blacklist,” starting with a single writer that wrote about Ivana Trump, then extending to other writers.
  • The Huffington Post - Apparently, the Trump camp didn't appreciate all HuffPo coverage of Trump being placed in the Entertainment section.
  • The Des Moines Register - Called for Trump to drop out of the race, that same week their press credentials were revoked.

A Trump campaign spokesperson declined to comment for the story.
