Should reporters exercise some decorum during press conferences?

Should they STFU after they've already asked a question or two so that other reporters have a chance to ask questions?

Should they hoard the microphone like they own it?

Should they spout fake news?

1. Most are attention whores representing the media arm of the DNC.

They know the more rude and outlandish they are the better off they will be with their employers.

to spout fake news, as well as assault small women that disagree with their lib point of view.

4. I saw Acosta get assaulted by a woman...

Not the other way around. Who does she think she is? And quoting someone directly is not fake news. Trump was, as usual behaving like a child.
You defending Trump makes one question your sensibilities.
If Trump hates the press so much why does he always seek out the cameras?

Those are simple questions, but only if one possesses the intellectually honesty to reply truthfully.
The alternative would be a non-responsive song-and-dance.

You can not spin it any other way.
He acted as a childish bully towards a woman doing her job.

I can`t take something out of your car and refuse to give it back then claim I have a right to physically push you away when you try to retrieve it.

Don`t try to out idiot post the other lefties,you will just get laughed at.

27. Your inability to answer two simple questions bespeaks ...

either insufficiently keen eyesight to accurately view the tape, or an unwillingness to acknowledge the simple fact that the woman initiated any contact that ensued; thereby rendering a claim of an "assault" committed by Acosta to be frivolous in the extreme.

Either way, further discussion would appear to be fruitless, so have a pleasant day.

She was doing her job to maintain order when a person decided to make an assclown of himself.

Any attempts to excuse him and actually blame her are stupefyingly ridiculous.

If I was Acosta I probably would have told him to fuck himself and then handed my credentials in as I left.

It was just an ugly press conference all the way around.
It think the press came in ready to stick it to him and he came in looking for a fight.

Trump was pissed about losing the house.
Some of the press, including Acosta, appeared to be ready to give him shit about it.

It was an ugly press conference from the get go and both sides contributed to the atmosphere.

Should the media just sit there and cower in fear at this "fake news" and "enemy of the people" bullshit?
Fuck that noise too.

38. Most people know the answer to this question once they are in grade school

You respect the office of the president. You don't necessarily have to respect the person but you respect the office. When the officeholder says your turn is up, then your turn is up and you hand over the microphone. If you cannot handle that then you do not belong in the same room as a President.

39. They've only gotten

more bold. I hated having to work with them back in the days with the PAO at Bragg. This was before Bragg was battened down.

They'd barge into our office demanding statements on everything under the sun and would never be satisfied with what we were permitted to say. We were Special Operations for God's sake, they knew there was a limit to what we could reveal. Hell, they'd even rifle through the papers on our desks if we didn't keep an eye on them.

Dealing with the media through those years convinced me that it wasn't a field I wanted to enter as a civilian. I'm not nasty and underhanded enough.
