Should politicians determine which reporter covers them?


CNN Business, 11-7-2018

" (CNN Business) — In a stunning break with protocol, the White House said Wednesday night that it's suspending the press pass of CNN's Jim Acosta "until further notice."

The move came just hours after Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, drew the ire of President Donald Trump and his allies by asking multiple questions at a post-midterms news conference. Trump insulted Acosta and called him a "terrible" person.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced in a statement that Acosta would be stripped of what's known as a "hard pass," which gives him access to the White House grounds.

CNN said in a statement that Acosta has the network's full support. "

3. Acosta was banned after he refused to relinquish the microphone to the White House staffer after he

had already asked several questions.

The video shows him pushing the woman.

4. Shitty poll as usual.

Acosta acted unprofessionally, refused to cede the floor to other reporters, and physically assaulted the woman responsible for microphone.

CNN is welcome to send another reporter and the White House did the right thing. I wonder how many of y'all would have screamed bloody murder if a Fox reporter acted in this way during an Obama press conference.

Fucking hypocrites!

14. Obama wouldn't have tried to shut him down...

In fact, I think Trump didn't answer him so he could pull this bullshit on camera and stir up the Deplorables.
And tough questions off the cuff are things that Trump can't answer with any deft.

5. Worse than that, Trump wants to tell reporters what to say.

He thinks they should all get in line like his political rally roadie, Sean Hannity.

6. Oh, horseshit.

Acosta is a presumptuous, attention seeking pundit who acted unprofessionally and realized the negative consequences of his actions.

Do you people ever truly listen to what you say out loud? He wants to tell reporters what to say? Since when? Where? Give us some examples? Jesus!

8. Should Media be Spokesholes for a political party?

Thats the real question

Also "Nationalism" is not WHITE Nationalism. There are no Code Words, (I didn't get a Code book. Produce yours if what you say is true)

Why can Left Leaning People hear "Dog Whistles"?

The Fake News is the enemy of the People. you saw the Fake News at work today
