Executives from several television networks held a conference call on Monday to discuss ways to deal with how they are being treated by the Donald Trump presidential campaign, Politico reports. 

Representatives of ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Fox News and NBC News reportedly were on the conference call to discuss issues with the campaign, including being herded into media pens and not allowed to interview supporters at campaign events.

CNN's Noah Gray recorded Trump Campaign Chairman Corey Lewandowski threatening to remove his press credentials and "blacklist" him when he attempted to film a protest at a Trump event in Massachusetts.

After the conference call, officials who talked to Politico downplayed issues with the campaign, noting that talks take place with campaigns all the time.

But complaints against Trump are sharper, The Washington Post noted,  pointing out the campaign has denied credentials to news organizations that have done reports on him he didn't like. Sometimes, as in the case of the Des Moines Register, it was the editorial department that drew Trump's ire, but he still banned its reporters from his events.

The network participants also noted to Politico that the talks are not being held by top-level executives, but by their political divisions.

A coordinated response from the networks to the Trump campaign isn't expected unless all can agree on key points.
