The White House has banished CNN's top political reporter from the building after accusing him of assaulting an intern during a fiery press conference with President Donald Trump.
In what is already three national crises ago, but still a big f*cking deal, White House press secretary revoked CNN reporter Jim Acosta's press pass as a distraction from the fact that Trump fired his Attorney General as a distraction from the fact that his party got wiped out in the House. I think you're wrong, but that's fine. You are a rude bad person you shouldn't be working for CNN.
Acosta, who has a history of heated exchanges with President Trump, also spoke to midterm messaging, asking a question about immigration. Wait. You know why we need the people? "To be honest. You aren't the best", he said.
Many in the media industry were furious with Ms Sanders for sharing the video, including one of Mr Acosta's colleagues. Nixon limited access ― for example, he took only print journalists who had written favorable stories about him on his groundbreaking trip to China ― but he did not restrict individual journalists' ability to do their jobs, Brinkley said. "We stand by our statement". The original tweet, from Jews for Racial and Economic Justice board member Rafael Shimunov, says the White House itself doctored it.
New York, November 8, 2018-The Committee to Protect Journalists today called on the White House to restore the credentials of Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent.
"The White House Correspondents' Association strongly objects to the Trump Administration's decision to use US Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a hard relationship", the group said.

Acosta, 47, regularly grills Sanders at press conferences where she defends Trump's most controversial policies. In a later tweet , Mr Acosta said Ms Sanders' assertion he placed his hands on the woman was "a lie" .

Alcindor pressed on: "There are some people who say the Republican Party is seen as supporting white nationalists because of your rhetoric. That's such a racist question".
It's unusual for the White House to pull the so-called hard passes from journalists.
"I'll tell you what". You're a very rude person.
Alcindor moved on to a different topic.
Trump also told April Ryan of the Urban National Radio Network to "sit down" and wait her turn. During the George W. Bush presidency, Trude Feldman, who worked for various news outlets, was suspended for 90 days after security cameras recorded her looking through a press aide's desk late one night.
