CNN´s Jim Acosta has press pass suspended
by White House, Sarah Sanders announces

Fox News, by Nicole Darrah

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/7/2018 8:59:58 PM

CNN´s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta´s press pass to access the White House was suspended "until further notice" Wednesday, hours after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with President Trump. "I´ve just been denied entrance to the WH," Acosta tweeted Wednesday night. "Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit." (Tweet) White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Acosta´s tweet in a statement, claiming the suspension of his press credentials stemmed from his "placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern."

Comments:
I didn´t see it at the time but he apparently grappled with the intern trying to get the mic. Other media will omit the real reason he has been kicked out.

This was so overdue. I am really unhappy with Drudge. His headlines really seem to side with the corrupt media. What is going on with him?

#2, good observation on Drudge. He seems to be anti-Trump these days. I find myself NOT going to his site as much as I used to because I am offended by his new slant and tone.

Drudge supports the media because it is his bread and butter. He is there for the clicks (cha-ching).. not to mention his freaky thing with sex robots has gone from tabloid tittle tattle to sick creepy obsession. I used to go to his site multiple times a day. Now weeks go by and I don´t visit. There are much better sites.

The press has been hostile, rude and insulting to Republicans and sycophantic to Democrats forever. No one elected Acosta or any of these smart alec Leftists who have no interest in exchanges of information, who ask gotcha questions, who insert their own (ridiculous) opinions into their questions, and who are rude, disrespectful, and hectoring. After watching this same bunch suck up to Barack Obama for eight years, and Obama lied like a rug, when he even did talk to them. I don´t think daily press conferences accomplish much. I think President Trump should stop having them, or at least reduce the number significantly.

I am tired of the media treating our PRESIDENT and other Republicans so nasty. It’s almost like they are the ones who determine who should be respected by all America. Remember how the press stopped standing when President Bush walked into the room. But when clinton or the Kenyan wonder walked into the press room the media had tingles going up and down their legs. It’s about time Acosta was denied access to any press briefing. He’s rude obnoxious and very disrespectful. I won’t miss him at all

Drudge is a news gathering site.
Not an opinion echo chamber.
Trump is a good man, but he is not perfect. Drudge is right to expose his feet of clay, just as needs done to every politician.
As to Acosta, I hope that when he gets back in his seat has been relocated to the furthest back position in the room where he belongs.

Any legitimate news organization would be embarrassed and fire a correspondent that acted like that. But not CNN. They will file a lawsuit to get a liberal judge to force the White House to allow their buffoon back in. One other thing. Every other so called journalist in that room sat quietly by while Acosta beclowned himself. They are just like him.

The First Amendment prohibits Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely. Dictionary definition of “Freedom of the Press” - the right to publish newspapers, magazines, and other printed matter without governmental restriction and SUBJECT ONLY TO THE LAWS OF LIBEL, OBSCENITY, SEDITION, ETC.

LIBEL - defamation by written or printed words, pictures, or in any form other than by spoken words or gestures; the act or crime of publishing it; anything that is defamatory or that maliciously or damagingly misrepresents.

SEDITION - incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government; any action, especially in speech or writing, promoting such discontent or rebellion.

The mainstream media’s coverage of the first 60 days of President Trump’s start in office were considerably more negative and less positive than for the Clinton, Bush, and Obama presidencies. Negativity: Trump (62%), Obama(20%), Bush(28%), Clinton(28%).

The Leftist mainstream media accomplishes its negative agenda through biases of commission, omission, condemnation, endorsement, labeling, placement, selected sources, spin, and story selection.

Based on dictionary definitions, today’s mainstream media’s defamation by written or printed words and pictures, published to shape public opinion against President Trump, may be dancing on the edge of “protected speech.”

Jim Acosta’s sympathizers are attempting to defend his behavior at Wednesday’s press conference calling the White House accusation a lie about Acosta “...placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.” Acosta did touch the young woman’s left arm with the back of his hand as he resisted the directive she was given to take the microphone away from him, an action that had to be unnerving for the young woman—an action that could be considered bullying (bully – an overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people). Acosta’s behavior toward Sarah Sanders is a matter of public record.

I watched the press conference and wondered why PT even called on that subversive Acosta. He was so rude and obnoxious that when that intern tried to take the mike, his actions had me wondering if he was going to punch her out. An epiphany must have stopped him from doing so.

He should have lost his WH press pass a long time ago or at the very least required to sit in the back row and never called upon again.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exacted revenge against one of her most outspoken detractors Tuesday night, blocking Rep. Kathleen Rice from landing a seat on the high-profile House Judiciary Committee. Pelosi lobbied for other members to join the panel over Rice, leaving the third-term New York Democrat off a list of her preferred members for the committee during a tense closed-door meeting Tuesday night, according to multiple sources. The effort came despite a full-court push from the New York delegation to secure a spot for Rice, a former prosecutor, on the panel that oversees everything from impeachment to guns to immigration.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

According to a new report by CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — who just announced her intentions to run for president in 2020 — once touted her work for an anti-LGBT organization and railed against “homosexual extremists.” Gabbard’s prior comments are in sharp contrast to her more recent record in support of LGBT rights and seem to stem to work she did with her father. Gabbard’s father, Mike, was an anti-LGBT activist in Hawaii and ran a political action group that promoted traditional marriage. Rep. Gabbard is even quoted in one of the press releases. Kaczynski reports: Gabbard herself

PASCAGOULA, Miss.— A Mississippi man in declining health is telling a story he’s kept secret from his own family for 45 years: he claims he was abducted by aliens. Calvin Parker says he and his buddy Charles Hickson were fishing in 1973 on the banks of the Pascagoula River, just north of where Ingalls Shipyard now sits, when a “real bright beam appeared all over us and it kind of blinded me for a second and when I got my vision back, I seen three bulky looking creatures coming toward us.” Parker said the creatures were “probably 4, 4 1/2, 5 foot tall…built like football players. But I noticed they kind of moved mechanical wise

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Wednesday night she “doesn’t care” if the Secret Service said it was prepared to appropriately secure the State of the Union address despite the partial government shutdown. Instead, she stood firm in her resolve to delay the January 29 event until the government completely re-opens. (Photo) In a letter to President Trump, Pelosi claimed the lack of funds to Homeland Security posed a risk to the White House and the Congress during the event, but the Department of Homeland Security Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen released a statement refuting that. She shared that statement in a

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

Domnio’s Pizza has been legally required to makes its app and website fully accessible to the visually impaired following a years-long legal battle with a blind customer who was left unable to order a pie with personalized toppings through his iPhone. Guillermo Robles in a lawsuit filed back in September 2016 first accused the popular pizza chain of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act “for its failure to design, construct, maintain, and operate its website to be fully accessible and independently usable” for those who are blind. The Americans with Disabilities Act, made law in 1990, says it is unlawful
