White House suspends credentials for CNN's Jim Acosta

Share

There's been no shortage of liberals defending CNN's Jim Acosta this week.

CNN filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration this morning, demanding the return of the White House credentials of Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent.

As Jost begins to report on the White House suspending Acosta's press credentials, the aide, played by Cecily Strong, walks on set and begins nervously shuffling back and forth and pointing to Jost while looking at someone off camera. He cited several requirements, set by precedent, that the White House should have to meet to revoke a pass, none of which were met.

"I've been told that - because I've been asked to give an affidavit which I've prepared to be submitted to the court", Mr. Donaldson said.

It started when Trump held a press conference on Wednesday at the White House after the midterm elections.

Even as Acosta is muttering these words, Trump begins to mock him: "Oh here we go. But it could be others, also", Trump said as quoted by The Daily Caller. What a stupid question. He complained that the president didn't answer the question which targeted President Trump's rhetoric just after a newspaper shooting in Maryland.

I think no one left the stadium before the third goal because the match was open. Not since 1966 have United have shipped 21 goals after 12 top-flight games.

"But they certainly want to make it about me, myself and I", she said when commenting on reporters like Acosta. Acosta was incredibly disrespectful to his colleagues, refusing to play by the rules, once again. "Jim Acosta has our full support", the statement added. Every time a member of the media behaves like Acosta, they're not only damaging the media's credibility; they're playing into Trump's hands.

Because the White House briefing room isn't the appropriate place to deliver commentary in the form of questions.

Late night TV hosts Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel both said Ms Sanders should be fired. That is a more-than-fair request. He said the revocation of Acosta's credential was a "disproportionate reaction" to the press conference incident. It was not an attempt to silence the president's critics. Acosta's critics, on the other hand, claim that the minimal editing simply provides a more detailed view.

"This is that White House intern who tried to grab the mic from Jim- no, you can not just take my pencil".

It would be nice if we could all be logical about what happened. Instead, they shamefully defend Acosta, merely because he shares in their anti-Trump sentiments. It depends on the action in question.

The same principle applies in the Acosta case, said Jameel Jaffer, executive director of the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, which brought the Twitter suit a year ago. His political leanings should not save him for the rebuking he so clearly deserves.
