The New York Times, which has long been an anti-American newspaper, has now somehow found in the First Amendment a right by CNN reporter Jim Acosta to behave in the manner he did last week, by pushing aside a White House aide who was a woman as she tried to grab the mic and pass it to another reporter wanting to ask a question.
The state-controlled news outlet that pushed such "righteous" people on us as Bill and Hillary Clinton and other sexual deviants, as well as promote the #MeToo movement, decided to fire off defending Jim Acosta and his obvious attempt to stonewall a press conference and to shove the arm back of a female White House aide who merely tried to do her job.

How soon they forget Cory Lewendowski and Michell Fields.
Naw. Acosta has a RIGHT to write whatever he sees fit. He doesn’t have a RIGHT to be vetted and cleared by the White House Staff.
BullSh!t he does. He has the right to speak out in the public square and a right to write whatever he wants. But the White House doesn’t have to let everyone in to report on it and ask questions. If so where is my pass?
He should be escorted, and I’d nominate the young lady he manhandled in the presser to be his escort. He’d have to ask her permission to go in and take a leak. Humiliate him.
NYT, just say what you mean. Journalists have the right to do whatever they want, whenever they want. Journalists should just be accepted as the elite overlords they are.
Us little peons must accept our fate.
They of course make up rights out of thin air.
I want a White House press pass, too!
I’m sure I could manage to ask questions respectfully and to not get kicked out.
If Acosta has a first amendment right to a WH Press Pass, then so do 310 (+/-) million US citizens.
The Slimes is idiotic, but this comes close to taking the cake.
He has a right to stand outside the gates and yell his lungs out.
Love the sound of the Slimes wailing in the morning.
Sounds like ... victory
Where in the constitution, or any amendment, is the right of anyone to be in the White House?
Frankly, there is no right to have the press in the White House. It was obviously a kindness to the media and a convenience to the staff.
No first amendment right to karate chop people’s arms.
new york times setting records for finding new lows.
Great idea! Trump should say there has to be a limited number of reporters and Acosta’s slot has been filled by a reporter from the ....
So 1st. Amendment rights give you the right to act like a jerk as you’re the only one there and to assault an intern? What makes media idiots think they’re above decency?
