White House urged to reinstate
CNN correspondent

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Ben Ariel

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/9/2018 12:14:10 AM

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) on Thursday called on the White House to reinstate CNN correspondent Jim Acosta´s press pass, which was revoked a day earlier after his fiery exchange with President Donald Trump during a press conference. In a statement quoted by The Hill, the CPJ said that journalists should be "able to do their job without fear that a tough series of questions will provoke retaliation." "The White House should immediately reinstate Jim Acosta´s press pass, and refrain from punishing reporters by revoking their access — that´s not how a free press works," CPJ advocacy director

No. Beg for it, and maybe you can talk to the Chief of Staff, maybe not.

Don’t give it back. At least, not yet. Make him sweat it out. It is important for reporters like him to learn some respect for the office of the President.

President Trump answered questions Wednesday for about an hour and a half. That doesn´t sound like suppression to me.

In fact, he stood in front of a hostile press and answered questions, insulting, depraved, stupid questions.

No More Acosta

The leftist media would take over the White House and demand that the President follow their directions if they thought they could get away with it.

CNN should transfer Acosta to Moscow, Russia so he can do his act at Putin’s news conferences and see that happens?

Not now not ever for Acosta. Barred forever along with CNN. Make them beg to come back and then make them beg for re acceptance & strict rules on questioning. One question one answer and then the next reporter. No follow ups. Shout outs barred immediately. Raised hands silently no shot outs. No talking also.

Absolutely not. Acosta should have been gone a long time ago. CNN too. Anyone else who tries to filibuster and dominate should be thrown out too. It has really gotten tiresome and disrespectful. Not only to the Presidency and the Whitehouse, but to the American people too.

Unfortunately, much of the footage that was being broadcast far and wide left out the most important beginnings of the exchange, where Acosta was forcefully stating his own opinion and debating it with DJT....THAT was the REAL transgression, and wholly indefensible from a journalistic point of view!

Jim Acosta somehow thinks the White House press briefings are the Acosta Show. Next he’d have been demanding a West Wing office and a cabinet position. Secretary of the First Amenment. Best to remove him completely and permanently.

Acosta was all about making himself the news, and everything else he represented as news was generally fake.

When Acosta was grandstanding at news conferences, he was also taking away a lot of time that other media representatives sitting there could have used to ask legitimate questions. That those other media representatives sat there like bumps on a log and did not shoot Acosta down as he was grandstanding should tell you something!

The comment follows a revelation that Assange, who is taking asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, was criminally charged under seal for publicizing confidential government information on his site. “The burden should not shift to Mr. Assange to have to defend against criminal charges when what he has been accused of doing is what journalists do every day,” Barry Pollack, a Washington lawyer for Assange, said. “They publish truthful information because the public has a right to know and consider that information

Washington Sen. Lindsey Graham is poised to become the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the next Congress, giving him both influence and exposure — and a new, politically risky stature as a Democratic target. Aside from running for president in 2015, the South Carolina Republican has never held a position with such a high level of visibility and unique set of challenges in his decades-long career. Now he’s about to move into one of Congress’ most visible positions as he and President Donald Trump prepare to run for re-election in 2020. Graham’s primary responsibility will be moving Trump’s judicial nominees through the

President Trump told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that he will kick CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta out of press conferences if he "misbehaves" going forward after a federal judge temporarily restored his press pass. Trump sat down with the “Fox News Sunday” host on Friday for a wide-ranging discussion – the first time Wallace has interviewed Trump since he took office. Wallace pointed out that a federal judge ruled earlier Friday that the White House must reinstate Acosta’s press credential. “Yeah, its fine, I mean it’s not a big deal.

What happens if Florida elections offices fail to meet Thursday’s looming deadline for a machine recount of ballots in the state’s tightly contested races? Keep counting, says Florida’s secretary of state. A spokeswoman for Secretary of State Ken Detzner said Tuesday that counties should continue counting past the deadline so that final tallies can be included in official results. At least one elections supervisor, Palm Beach County’s Susan Bucher, has said she does not believe her office will make the deadline in at least three races and will complete a tally only for the bitter fight between Gov.
