The Jim Acosta Lawsuit.

Recommended Posts

After getting routed by the Democrats and right before he'd try to turn the page on the election by firing his AG, Trump had a press conference where he was more combative than usual. His favourite arch-rival in the press, CNN's Jim Acosta, asked a string of questions that made Trump call him a rude and terrible person. He also had an intern try to take the microphone from Acosta when he refused to stop asking questions. 

Nothing new, I know, this is Trump's MO. BUT Trump went into new territory by revoking Acosta's press credentials. It's an avenue to dictatorship where you ban people that ask questions you don't like. 

The initial claim was that Acosta had assaulted the intern, but people have eyes, and this was clearly a lie. So now the argument is that Acosta hogs the mic. :lol:

Anyway, this would be just another day in Trumpville, but it appears CNN is suing Trump, with an unexpected defender.

More than a dozen news outlets -- from the Associated Press to USA Today, The Washington Post and Politico -- are filing friend-of-the-court briefs to support CNN and Jim Acosta's lawsuit against President Trump and several top aides.

The list represents most of the biggest news organizations in the United States.

The most notable name on the list is Fox News. In fact, Fox went further than most other media companies on Wednesday, issuing a statement that said "Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized."

The statement came from Jay Wallace, the president of Fox News, hours after Fox commentators like Sean Hannity publicly criticized Acosta and CNN.

 

If allowed to stand, Trump will see the treatment of Acosta as permission to revoke the press credentials of anyone who he doesn't like. And that's a huge infringement on the free press. O

Acosta argued and disagreed,he got what he deserved.  CNN wasn't banned so they can send another so called journalist

No it's not....Obama also impeded press access.  CNN can get WH press credentials for another reporter who is not an a-hole like Acosta.

I don’t know how revoking ones privilege of attending White House briefings some how amends the constitution and paves the way to dictatorship.  Acosta, as others are free to write whatever they want to write, or say whatever they want to say about the administration or the president.

No where in the constitution does it spell out the obligation of the president to answer even a single question from a reporter.  It’s up to the electorate to decide if that behaviour is or isn’t acceptable.

Agreed...that is just stupid.   But such mutterings from MSNBC don't surprise me anymore.

If you watch Fox you'll find bias for sure, but they're nothing like CNN. 

TBH Acosta needed to go, and CNN should have figured that out themselves. They need to put on their big boy pants for a while. They could actually be a better deterrent to Trump if they were less idiotic. Trump is the less boorish of the two. Scary.

Well a court has ordered he get his press pass back. 

Oh and thinking Trump would refuse to leave isn't so far fetched when you see him laying groundwork by claiming fraud in elections. He actually Tweeted this week that people go to their car and get disguises and vote multiple times.

The judge ruled that Acosta has a right to due process, but agreed that there is no first amendment right to attend a white house briefing.

Obviously Hannity, Ingraham  and Carlson are bias - they don't hide it.  Bream, Baier and Wallace are somewhat down the middle - In fact Wallace is pretty tough on the president.  The problem with CNN and MSNBC is that they claim a non-bias - all of them.  They claim they're just asking the tough questions - right there is the first lie.  CNN and MSNBC are full on operatives for the democrats.

I don't agree that MSNBC and CNN are the same. MSNB is more like the left's FOX. CNN actually gives the right quite a bit of exposure on its panels and as contrbutors. Trumps new AG flunky Whittaker used to be one of them.

Msnbc is far more extreme than Fox

 even though the judge ruled in Acosta’s favour, granted the injunction, and ordered the WH to reinstate his press pass, Judge Kelly also said that Trump, Sanders, etc. can choose not to call on Acosta.  

Let’s see how Acosta handles being frozen out.and if he disrupts how the press will handle it when Trump leaves the press conference or even cancels all of them

Your opinion, I disagree. They both have their legit news people and both have their partisan show people. You don't get any more extreme than Hannity, Pirro and Co. and still be on MSM.

You’re looking at the whole election freakoit thing upside down. 

If you recall the Dems were accusing Trump of being a sore loser before the 2016 election happened. Then when they lost they were the biggest sore losers in ths history of democracy. There’s still a collusion investigation going on, remember?

Now there’s a recount in Florida, and in the hours before the Republicans’ 2 injunctions kicked in the crooked Broward election team found tens of thousands of votes and narrowed the lead from 60,000 votes down to just 12,000. 

You think Trump is a problem there?

Tye Dems are also the ones who want people to vote without id. Why wouldn’t people go vote multiple times?

It’s an article that’s full of quotes that are attributed to anonymous sources. It’s not exactly on the up and up but CNN doesn’t deserve better. They’re the world leader in anonymous sources.

Chuck Callesto — political strategist and former GOP congressional candidate — decided to ask his Amazon Echo, “Who is Jim Acosta?” He posted the results on Twitter Monday:

“Abilio James Acosta is an American fake journalist who is currently the Chief White House Correspondent for CNN,” Alexa responded.<<<

Since that happened, Alexa has been 'fixed' - - - :P:lol:

I disagree,  CNN has a sense of humor to have people like Don Lemon on as a 'news reporter'.

Sure, Callesto, a GOP strategist was the only one to ask their Echo who Acosta was and the only one to get a reply that was magically fixed. Forgive me if I'm sceptical.
