Finally: White House Suspends CNN Reporter Jim Acosta Press Credential…

Not exactly sure what took so long on this but the White House has finally suspended the “hard pass” press credential for CNN narrative engineer Jim Acosta following his rude behavior and physical confrontation with a White House intern earlier today.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders released the following statement:

“President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history.”

“Contrary to CNN’s assertions there is no greater demonstration of the President’s support for a free press than the event he held today. Only they would attack the President for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of 1.5 hours including several from the reporter in question. The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it‘s an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration.”

“As a result of today’s incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice.”

    He never should have put his hands on the woman without consent of the woman, especially since it was not a handshake. Anyway he’s now been reduced to being a meme.

    Acosta is such an emotionally frail little pr*ck that I say keep his credintials pulled indefinately. He can sit around and go crazy in his self-absorbed little world with out his only identity.
    He touched a young, intern who was just doing her job. Deal with it.

    CNN can send someone else.

  6. I would say that people are overreacting to the whole ‘he grabbed her’ part of it, but considering that it was during a presser, and it was an intern in charge of hanging the mic to reporters, and that Acosta was literally hogging the mic and acting like a petulant child… Yes, I think that his punishment was appropriate.

      He had no business touching her except what might be a brush when handing her the mic. She was doing her job. Acosta grandstanding. This is NOT journalism. It’s high school. Acosta reminds me of the attention seeking smart alek boy trying to trip up the teacher. Jim got his well derserved suspension. Finally.

      Now he can a martyr for the establishment elite oligharchy. I was thinking today, we need to make Che shirts with Acosta’s face under the beret. Such a revolutionary!

    Now that Trump’s obligatory post election press conference is over as well as the intense election, Trump should think long and hard about when and how he has the next Q&A session with the snarly jackal media. Maybe he should just make carefully prepared statements to the people and then leave the press fuming or do a few network interviews if necessary. It will make no difference as the network’s negative, vituperative coverage is at its maximum now no matter what Trump says or does.

    The Dem press will never treat him fairly in a Q&A and they will always take turns asking “the racist” question, the “cruel and heartless treatment of peaceful fleeing refugee families” question and on and on. Acosta wanted Trump to look nasty and outraged and semi- powerless to stop his questions and he succeeded and is now a proud celebrated champion of the single minded corrupt press.

    When a so called reporter or Dem hatchet man or woman acts rudely or will not shut up it’s a no win scenario for Trump as the media always plays the poor me victim card and further dupes the alleged anti Trump “suburban women” and independents or whoever the people were in Montana that voted in Tester and all the other Dem winners.

    Best suggestion I’ve heard: Absolute rule–questioners must give up the microphone before getting an answer to their question. No holding the microphone for serial questions/comments. Simple. Effective. Fair.

    CNN is still standing by their creep. No apology…nothing. This Democrat front — pretending to be a news organization — should be banned from the White House or any other venue in which the President is located until a formal apology is made by the brat and the organization.

    I simply don’t care what other press org’s say; I’m not interested in listening to media pundits — especially FOX; and I’m not concerned about legal scholars debating the first amendment (I’m fairly confident that that amendment’s verbiage does not include ‘press freedoms will not be abridged even when it includes unsolicited physical confrontation’).

    OK, so we can all probably agree that serious physical assault did not occur. Still, HIS physical being touched HER physical being inappropriately and unsolicited, while she was simply trying to do her job. Case friggin’ closed.

    I’m sick of this crap!

      He purposely touched her, it wasn’t ‘incidental’ or ‘accidental’ and if CNN doesn’t realize that she was intentionally battered doing her job then they don’t belong sending anyone else to the WH or near the WH staff / occupants.

        Acost-her’s motion was a clear, back-handed warding-off strike. It was an “unlawful and unwanted touching or striking of one person by another”–i.e. textbook criminal or tortious battery. Slow down the video to .5 speed and it’s unmistakable. Not an accident, just a guy acting like a spoiled, narcissistic, entitled brat.

        Any organization that supports such actions and continued abuse of access to POTUS/WH press briefings really should be banned in its entirety. I’ve said for a long time what another commenter said earlier today–ban all enemedia and substitute OANN and other, more honest, rational, and civil news organizations. Force CNN, MSNBC, et al. to refer to and maybe even pay royalties to them to get any significant news.

    I would like to see the whole “White House Press” shut down and their designated “room” in the White House returned to the people. Our founding fathers did not establish this! It wasn’t until the 1900’s that Presidents started doing press conferences. And they were not inside a specially designated room, which they now consider theirs!
    Reporters used to have to hunt up the news, not have it provided for them. These lefties are just rabid dogs spewing forth leftist propaganda every time they open their mouths.
    At the very least, there should be some standards, such as
    1. one question which isn’t 3 paragraphs long in order to get your propaganda in,
    2.NO follow-up question,
    3. questions on topic of whatever is the purpose of the Press Conference and
    4. most of all; polite; good manners.
    These Press Conferences are a waste of time with these rude and really ignorant people being so disrespectful to our President, his staff and ultimately to us!

    Acosta alone should not be suspended; CNN should be suspended. The Acosta stunts were orchestrated. That is transparent policy of CNN. CN has expressed no regret for his behavior. CNN should be suspended or the nation wiil see more of the same.
    Look at the big picture.
    In a speech where Trump was trying to bring the nation together and spoke of working with the Democrats, CNN immediately worked to (1) foster divisiveness and (2) change the narrative from Trump’s words of cooperation and coming together to advance agenda items where Democrats and Republicans have common ground to Acosta being excluded from future press conferences.
    Neither is an accident.
    CNN is dishonest.

    He confronted is violation of asking questions and making statements for the 2nd time and said I think you should let me run the country…. .”next question”
    Acosta starts to ask another question
    Trump says, “that’s enough”
    Acosta keeps asking, “Mr. President….

    She reaches and grasps the mic.
    Acosta strikes the bend of white house aid’s elbow with his left forearm, then grabs the mice with both hands using his left hand.

    White house aide is pulling on the mic, he has it with both hands
    She looks Acosta straight in the eye
    Acosta says, “pardon me, ma’am, umm Mr, President”

    The president walks around the podium to confront Acosta
    Acosta shuts up and gives the mic away

    This was long-a-coming. The assault needed not to have even occurred. His pass should have been pulled months ago. I hope now that the rest of the press corps backs off from the interruptions and rudeness and starts treating POTUS and Sarah Huckabee with more respect. I ain’t holding my breath.

He continually shows that he is so in love with himself that he actually thinks (assuming he has a brain) that he has something worthwhile to say and that anybody really cares.

    It is way overdue that this 2 year old whiner finally had to pull up his diaper and leave for a time out!
