The reason we know about Trump's meeting with a key figure in the Russia probe is because of the Kremlin

I saw a right wing article that said it wasn't true that the Russian press was allowed into the meeting, when the U.S. press was not allowed there, because "Most "news" agencies are propaganda machines controlled by the government. Their "reporters" work for the government, including the official photographer allowed into the meeting. " That is supposed to be better?

President Donald Trump met with a key figure at the center of the probe into Trump's campaign, Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak, and the only official transmission of the moment came from an official Russian government photographer.

In a tweet on Wednesday, the Russian embassy in the US and other Russian agencies released photos of Trump meeting the Russian ambassador, whose discussions with former national security adviser Flynn about US sanctions on Russia helped push Flynn to resign within weeks of coming onto the job.

The photo opportunity came during Trump's meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House on Wednesday, which was closed to press.

Aside from official members of the meeting, the only two other people present were an American photographer and a Russian photographer. An official White House readout of the meeting omitted Kislyak's presence at the meeting.
