Jim Acosta violated one of
the oldest rules of journalism

New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

By producing a split decision, the election that was supposed to end all elections turned out to be fairly predictable. But it’s the day after that was unlike any other. The Republican president, the likely speaker of the Democratic-controlled House and the Senate’s Republican majority leader each started Wednesday by talking about working together to get things done. They talked to each other privately and talked separately in public about what they thought they could accomplish for the country. For most Americans, that would make for a very good day. Given the overheated environ

Acosta wrote late last night, "Dear Diary, I bullied a little girl because she wouldn´t give me her microphone so I grabbed it away from her! She knelt before me in terror!! I feel so manly tonight"!!

I remember when I was a child and said a bad word, my mom would say and sometimes do, wash my mouth out with soap. Acosta is sure behaving like a little spoiled brat and a good mouth washing out with Lava Soap seems to be in the cards for him? He´d probable mess his pants and cry like the little B*tch he is then?

Michael Goodwin has provided an excellent voice of reason. It is hoped that the professional ethics described by Mr. Goodwin are still respected by most of the journalists of today and will prevail in the White House press room.

Mr. Acosta is the voice of CNN and it is embarrassing, disgusting, and completely unprofessional. It is time to retire this antagonistic and disrespectful egomaniac.

Excellent analysis! Jim Acosta & other reporters have a bad case of narcissism. Acosta, as well as the guy who followed him were attacking the President. That is not journalism - that is looking for a ´drama´.
On top of all this is the fact that the media have become servants of socialism. They are promoters of Marxist totalitarianism, even as they deny they are fascists. Hitler, Stalin, Mao - all controlled the press. Some journalists resisted, but many willing became mouthpieces cranking out the Party line - just like today´s media tout the Dem´s swill.

If someone in the DNC media would tell Acosta to calm down maybe he would ?? It´s about respect , you may not like your boss, teacher, parents, preacher but you do have to give them respect for their position. If you do disagree with them talk in a private place & try to iron it out. If they are the type that won´t listen stay away, if possible. I learned a long time ago no one wins when you argue. I justify losing friends by telling myself I would never have done to them by what they did to me.

Jim "Accost-her" deserves to be banned from the White House for the rest of Trump´s term. I saw it live and if he could have hit her, he probably would have! He looked like a bratty kid with his toy truck he refused to put it down after daddy said stop. Disgusting how he wasn´t alone in insulting the POTUS!

When the reporter is more interested in scoring points and becoming the story, the facts and the truth go south. All CNN is interested in is getting people to watch the video on their web site, it going viral on Facebook, etc. It´s all about embarrassing Trump and pushing his buttons.

Last night wuz simply a nuther fine demonstration by the Bought & Paid for Knee-Pad, “News” Media trying to create a situation. Now they are busy lying about it wall-wall! It was a two-week CNN feeding-frenzy, complete with charges that were dropped, when Cory Lewandowsky touched a female reporter, but when Acosta does it, it somehow never happened! Needless to say, if they will lie and distort about a situation that Americans clearly saw for themselves, then how can Americans and why should Americans believe ANYTHING they tell you? Both CNN and NBC should be banned from the White House briefings until they issue an apology to the intern and the American people for being Dirtbags, hiring Dirtbags and pedaling Dirtbaggery!

He actually filmed relinquishing his hard pass to the Secret Service agent. It is all about him, him, him. He is the Barack Obama of the White House press corps. Until he apologizes and learned how to behave himself, keep him out. The White House does not need the disruption.

I think this was Trump taking CONTROL of the Press Briefings. Acosta has been a Menace since Trump was elected. Sarah Huckabee has handled it as professionally as she could, but it was time to shut Acosta down and send a message that this WILL STOP NOW! Hopefully, they will pull April Ryan´s credentials next. As #9 said, they need to respect Trump´s rank even if they don´t like him personally!

Some one will step up to replace Acosta. Hating Trump is major item for d´RATS. Firing the race cannon constantly at any thing or anyone they dislike is second. And third, is stealing votes via the provisional vote scheme. . Throw in more silly Marxists and that´s all there is to d´RATS.

Acosta has violated many more norms than the “rules of journalism” whatever those might be. He routinely behaves outside the protocols promoted for a lifetime by mother’s, fathers, grandparents, teachers, coaches, preachers, bosses, and peers. Acosta disrespects all the norms of civil discourse. Narcissist is too forgiving...he’s a sociopath.

What is becoming normal behavior for these democrat propagandists is a direct reflection of the behavior of many young people. They have no respect for anyone, even themselves. Their language and propensity for violence against anyone who disagrees with them is an indication of their intolerance. Parents have failed to teach their children basic manners and respect for authority. Many of these ids respect nothing and no one. Acosta is merely representative of their mindset. Clearly, the journalism professors bear a great deal of responsibility. They are cranking out these fools by the thousands.

President Trump had much more patience than I would have had. He handled it well, but clearly when Acosta refused to give up the mic and man-handled the female intern, you could see he was very upset. Had she gently kneed Acosta, Americans all over the country watching would have cheered because he certainly deserved it.

Thank you, #12, for reminding us just how unhinged the media became when they camped out on the false allegation that Corey Lewandowksi shoved that female reporter. Their hypocrisy is rich.

´The president, clearly angry now and stepping away from the podium as if he might bolt the room´

Actually, when Trump stepped back from the podium, I thought it was going to give him a little more room to make a physical charge at Acosta. I half-way expected Trump to get in that little kitty´s face.

Here´s how the White House should handle every press conference. Schedule them at the press secretary and President´s convenience. No favorite seating arrangement, first come first serve. Leave the press locked out of the room standing in the heat, cold or rain. Step out of the door and hand pick the reporters you want and lock the rest out until next time.
If they act like pigs or cattle then treat them like a livestock auction some get picked and some get slaughtered.
The press secretary has been jousting with Jim Acosta the little drama queen hit man for CNN long enough. Ban CNN like Obama banned FOX it´s easy don´t allow them near the White House lawn.

Pulling Acosta´s credentials was a good first step.

But I think they should begin the next few--maybe a dozen--press conferences with a statement:

If you yell a question, you will not be called on.
If you interrupt this office or another reporter, you might be removed for the day.
If you refuse to give up the microphone, you might be removed for the day.
Each reporter is allowed one question and one followup, then you must wait to be called upon again, after others have had a turn.
This is an office in the White House, please remember that and be respectful of this office and your fellow reporters.

Or maybe, have it printed on a handout when they come into the room.
Working adults should not need this reminder!

as if he (Trump) might bolt the room??
Acosta handed off the mic (to MSNBC) the instant Trump signaled he had had enough and stepped out from behind the lecturn. Apparently Acosta saw his career (and maybe himself with dentures) flash before his eyes.

This BS with the WHPP is not the media´s fault. It is entirely the fault of an overly accommodating White House Press Secretary.

There has got to be some rules- some framework of civility. This is the office of the President of the United States of America. This is not a barroom or a college debating class. This is serious and it is historical.

Trump has bent over backward to accommodate a free press and give them total access to the Presidential office- as much or more than any previous President. This "Mob of Idiots" has got to be put an end to.

Sarah needs to come out tomorrow and say- This is now a whole new world for you folks, but here are the rules. Disregard them at your peril. The distribute a paper describing the expected behavior of the White House Press pool. You must ask intelligent, meaningful questions. such questions will be answered to the fullest extent possible. If you attack or begin to espouse a political platform - you will be asked politely to leave the press conference. On the second violation, you will have your media pass revoked and you will not be welcome back. The media organization you represent can reapply for a new White House pass but only with a new correspondent. If that correspondent is approved, the media org can be represented and given full credentials- but this time on a probationary basis.

Civility and decorum have got to be preserved!

There is a video on Michellemalkin.com that clearly shows Acosta "karate-chopped" the intern´s arm near the elbow/bicep when she tried to take the mic. I think that is what upset the Pres. the most. Remember when Cory Lewandowski put out his arm to hold back a reporter and the press went batcrap crazy? More of the double standard.

Keep this creep out of the WH.

While watching the press conference via TV, my wife mentioned that with the press this badly behaved, they should have a switch for each mic´s input at the ´base station´, and cut off whichever mic is in the hands of the misbehaving -I won´t say reporter- media person.


Saguni (#37) said it well, I would change it slightly as follows:

Pulling Acosta´s credentials was a good first step, and is long overdue.

I think they should put a new policy in place:

If you yell a question, you WILL be removed for the day.
If you interrupt this office or another reporter, you WILL be removed for the day.
If you refuse to give up the microphone, you WILL be removed for the day.
Each reporter is allowed one question and one followup, then you must wait to be called upon again, after others have had a turn.

Since CNN´s ratings are lower than the cartoon network why should they be considered a viable news source and so why should they have any press credentials? It seems to me that you should have to meet certain standards to be considered for the important job of representing the American people in getting information that is important to them. Acosta never asks questions he is a pundit. He presents his opinions at every press conference and challenges the President at every turn, not with any question of substance but only with his biased opinions. He is not a journalist therefore cannot be qualified for press credentials of any sort.

The language we use to cover news events says a great deal about our editorial judgment. And the Associated Press’ handling of the long-shot recount efforts in Georgia and New Mexico says its judgment needs serious reconsideration. In the Peach State, Democratic House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams is hoping against hope that her recount efforts will upend the results of the state’s gubernatorial election, taking away Republican Georgia Gov.-elect Brian Kemp´s victory. On Friday, the AP covered Abrams’ campaign to overturn the election results with a headline that reads: “ Abrams prepares push for new Georgia Gov. vote.”

I’m fine with women in power, just not
this one specific woman currently in power

The first thing I need to make clear is that I love and support women. I am eager to see more women rise to positions of power. Hashtag pink wave! Hashtag pink hat! But I have to say, I’m a little frustrated that we keep putting forward this specific woman who really grinds my gears. Not because she’s a woman. I would know if that were why. It is not that. It’s just — ugh, her, you know? She just doesn’t excite me, and I feel that she is too compromised. That’s not a woman thing, though.

Noted Vatican Theologian Calls for Examination

In an important interview that was overlooked last month, a Vatican theologian said that unless Pope Francis corrects himself and reaffirms Church teaching on morals, the faith, and the sacraments, "the apostasy will deepen and the de facto schism will widen." To address the current crisis, he suggested that an examination of the “juridical validity” of Pope Benedict’s XVI’s resignation was in order to “overcome problems that today seem insurmountable to us.” The theologian consultor to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints was implying that further study of the situation could reveal that Francis is not

Ocasio-Cortez´s rise reveals rampant

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), made headlines when she revealed that she wouldn’t be able to afford Washington, D.C. rent until her government salary kicks in. The lack of affordable housing in Washington is no joke, but the predicament also speaks to the young lawmaker’s financial literacy — or lack thereof. The 29-year-old didn’t think to consider something as basic as the relocation expenses of a new job opportunity. If she doesn’t know how much an apartment costs, how much confidence should taxpayers have in her ability to effectively deliver trillions of dollars in campaign promises?

Stan Lee´s Work a Reflection of His Times

Stan Lee, the reinventor of the comic book, died Monday at the ripe old age of 95. Comic books get a bad rap, although not nearly as bad as they used to. There was a time when comic books were the cause of an all-out moral panic. After the release of psychiatrist Fred Wertham´s book "The Seduction of the Innocent," the Senate held hearings to grapple with the alleged moral rot of comics, which were supposedly fueling juvenile delinquency and moral degeneracy. Batman and Robin, you see, were secretly gay. Superman was an un-American ersatz fascist.

Ivanka Trump holds rather more sway in the White House than a First Daughter should — that much is well-established. Yet this week we see that it is her step-mother, Melania, who calls the shots in her husband’s administration. Mrs T is the real force behind the throne, as Mira Ricardel has discovered to her cost. Palace intrigue doesn’t get more intriguing. Ms Ricardel, a close ally of National Security Adviser John Bolton, made the mistake of clashing with Melania over her ‘Be Best’ trip to Africa. Ricardel allegedly insisted a member of the security council

CHICAGO — To read the worshipful press coverage you’d never know that, for Democrats, the unthinkable has happened: Michelle Obama has revealed herself as just another guru for sale. On Tuesday night, the former first lady kicked off her 10-city North American book tour, which more closely resembled a cult-of-personality-propaganda-rally, at the United Center in Chicago. (Dates have been added in London, where scalped tickets are going for over $90,000 each, and Paris.) A sliver of the 20,000 seats available for the Chicago event were priced at $29.50, and those sold out within five minutes of going on sale in September.

Last week Justice Brett Kavanaugh attended his investiture ceremony, further solidifying his rightful seat on the Supreme Court. President Trump and Kavanaugh’s fellow justices, with the exception of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who was absent due to a fall, attended in his honor. “This special sitting of the court is held today to receive the commission of the newly appointed associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Brett M. Kavanaugh,” Chief Justice John Roberts said at the beginning of the ceremony. “We are pleased to have with us today the president of the United States.

An op-ed published this week in the Wall Street Journal has ignited rumors of a potential 2020 presidential run for Hillary Clinton. The piece discusses the different iterations of Hillary Clinton the public has seen over the past 30-plus years. But none of those versions became president and no matter how many times Clinton tries to reinvent herself she cannot change who she is at the core: inauthentic, unlikable and out of touch. According to the op-ed by Mark Penn and Andrew Stein – headlined “Hillary Will Run Again” – Hillary Clinton 1.0

A federal judge handed CNN a major victory on Friday, ruling that President Donald Trump White House must temporarily restore the press credentials it stripped from the network´s chief White House correspondent last week while a lawsuit plays out. Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Jim Acosta´s First Amendment press rights trump the administration´s right to have orderly press conferences. He declared that the White House failed to give Acosta ´due process,´ something guaranteed in government proceedings under the Fifth Amendment. ´I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us this week,´ Acosta told other reporters outside the federal

"I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election," Abrams said Friday. "This speech is not a concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper," Abrams said. "As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.
