  • Press shouldn't celebrate too soon on Jim Acosta lawsuit

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 19, 2018 | Mark Grabowski
    As a journalism professor, I have mixed feelings about Friday’s federal court ruling that the White House must reinstate Jim Acosta's press credentials. Ultimately, it may prove to be a pyrrhic victory as the entire press could lose much greater access from the fallout. To be clear, Acosta is no First Amendment hero. His antics set a bad example that makes it harder for me to teach students responsible reporting. The CNN White House correspondent has been rude and unprofessional for President Trump’s entire time in office, and purposely so, to make himself a front-page story. Most recently, on Nov....
  • ‘They Invaded’: ABC, NBC Ignore Tijuana Locals Protesting Against the Caravan

    The camp set up for the Central American migrant caravan in Tijuana was on “lockdown” on Sunday as Mexican residents of the city attempted to storm the area in protest. The unwelcome arrival of the caravan had put tremendous pressure on Tijuana’s resources resulting in many locals taking to the streets in opposition. It was a serious and dangerous development that went completely unreported during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News Monday evening. The CBS Evening News kept up its record of being the only broadcast network evening program treating the caravan seriously. In a news brief, anchor Jeff...

    Representative-elect Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) is proving to be a force to be reckoned with in Washington. Not only does he have stellar comedic timing, as we saw on "Saturday Night Live," but he can calmly defend the conservative agenda even when faced by a panel of liberal opponents. Crenshaw showed off his impressive debate skills on this weekend's "Face the Nation." His fellow panelists repeated the talking point that President Trump is undermining democracy with his attacks on the media, particularly CNN. For the second time in two weeks, the White House is revoking Jim Acosta's hard pass, noting his...

    The White House released new rules for presidential press conferences on Monday in hopes of restoring decorum among reporters. They include the following: (1) A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists; (2) At the discretion of the President or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up has been allowed and asked, the questioner will then yield the floor; (3) "Yielding the floor" includes, when applicable, physically surrendering the microphone to White House staff...

    We’ve come to know and love Jim Acosta’s ridiculous, narcissistic antics at White House press conferences, so it was all in all good news he was being allowed back in to make a fool of himself all over again. Friday, a judge ruled that the White House must give the CNN reporter (I use that term loosely) his hard pass back, which granted him access to the White House grounds. Acosta’s hard pass had been temporarily revoked after he refused to hand the microphone back to a White House intern per the President’s instructions.

    CNN) The White House has issued a new warning to CNN's Jim Acosta, saying his press pass could be revoked again at the end of the month. In response, CNN is asking the U.S. District Court for another emergency hearing. "The White House is continuing to violate the First and 5th Amendments of the Constitution," the network said in a statement Sunday. "These actions threaten all journalists and news organizations. Jim Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and the President." Last Friday CNN won a temporary restraining order, forcing the White House to...

    White House officials are planning to suspend CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass again, after a judge ordered them to temporarily restore it Friday, CNN has reported. Officials sent a letter to Acosta with a view to revoking his newly regained privileges at the end of the month, the network stated. CNN issued a statement Sunday claiming officials were “[violating] the First and 5th Amendments of the Constitution.” “These actions threaten all journalists and news organizations,” the statement continued. “Jim Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and the President.” Officials revoked Acosta’s press...

    DC Dirty Laundry ^ | 11/18/2018 | Tim Brown
    Federal Judge Timothy J. Kelly, a Trump-appointed judge, ruled that the White House had to restore CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass because it potentially violated “due process” of law, and since no crime was committed and no charges have been filed, I believe that Judge Kelly has no idea of what due process is nor what the Constitution states about it and should be impeached. ... Kelly went on to state, “The opportunity to be heard seems especially important in this case. The government must provide Mr. Acosta due process if it is to revoke his hard pass.” ......

    Liberal Fox News pundit Geraldo Rivera said President Trump and other Americans are being too harsh in their skepticism of the migrant caravans of illegals defiantly waving their own nations’ flags while stampeding the US border. Many pointed out that the gesture is one that an invading army would make — and not the conciliatory posture one expects from refugees desperate to flee their oppressive countries. “You’re being way too harsh,” Rivera told Fox & Friends. “These are very unsophisticated people. They are an uneducated group. They cling to some symbols of stability in their lives. All they want to...

    It is disgraceful enough for CNN and other networks to allow such bad behavior on their airwaves, but the President and his Press Secretary have a right to prevent it from occurring during their news conferences In the aftermath of U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly’s ruling that reinstated the White House press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta, the President outlined some overdue changes that will be implemented. Hereafter, the White House will be “writing up rules and regulations,” according to the President. He also predicted that “if they don’t listen to the rules and regulations, we’ll end up back...

    Before killing himself with a drug intended for rapid and painless animal euthanasia, Richard A. Morrisett had endured a nightmare at the University of Texas in Austin. The 57-year-old tenured professor of pharmacology and toxicology was once a rising star in the College of Pharmacy – a man regarded as a first-rate research scientist and teacher during his 21 years at the state's flagship university. Morrisett's research offered new insights into alcohol-related brain disorders and alcoholism – an arcane area of research among neuroscientists. Some colleagues called him “brilliant.” Morrisett's career, however, was destroyed by a single newspaper article. Published...

    "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace noted during a discussion with the president that William McRaven has said Trump's attacks on the media are the "greatest threat to democracy in his lifetime." Trump in response called McRaven a "Hillary Clinton fan" and "Obama-backer." "Wouldn’t it have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that, wouldn’t it have been nice?" Trump asked. "You know, living — think of this — living in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I guess they considered a nice mansion, I don’t know, I’ve seen nicer. But living in Pakistan right...

    Rep. Adam Schiff — along with “Crooked Hillary Clinton,” “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” and “Crazy Maxine Waters” — has long been a target of mockery on Donald Trump’s Twitter feed. But in a post Sunday, the president may have coined his crudest nickname yet for a political rival. “So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate,” the president wrote online, “but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!” Schiff fired back 35 minutes later, quoting...

    The administration is drawing up rules for White House reporters' behavior, and the president said if journalists don't follow them, 'we'll end up back in court, and we'll win.' CNN and Jim Acosta may have won their battle with the White House in court on Friday, but President Donald Trump has found a new weapon in his long war against the media. After a judge ruled that the White House violated the CNN correspondent’s right to due process by stripping him of his press badge, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declared that the administration was drawing up new rules to...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) No, Jim Acosta and CNN did not “win” their case today, so everybody needs to calm down here. All the plaintiffs in the case against the White House this morning was an injunction in which the judge in the case, Timothy Kelly, ordered the restoration of Acosta’s hard pass to the White House grounds while the case is in the process of being heard and decided. Believe it or not, I think this was a completely reasonable action for the judge to take, since it ensures Acosta will not have been...

    Last week, the White House revoked the press pass of CNN's chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, and denied him access to the building. CNN responded by filing suit in federal court against the president. Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights had been violated, said CNN. The demand: Acosta's press pass must be returned immediately and his White House press privileges restored. "If left unchallenged," CNN warned, "the actions of the White House would create a dangerous chilling effect for any journalist who covers our elected officials." A dozen news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post,...

    It's very easy for media elites in Manhattan to decide that one tweet can prove small towns in Wisconsin are stuffed with racists and anti-Semites. On Nov. 12, ABC, CBS and NBC all leaped on a tweet from a contributor of the left-wing talk show "The Young Turks." It showed a months-old prom photo of a collection of teenage boys from Baraboo High School in Wisconsin who are positioned on the front steps of the Sauk County Courthouse and appear to be giving a "Nazi salute." The town of about 12,000 -- best known before now as the original headquarters...

    WASHINGTON—A federal judge granted an emergency motion to restore the White House press credential of CNN correspondent Jim Acosta—a victory for the network in a closely watched press-freedom case. The lawsuit could determine whether the government can ban individual reporters from public buildings. District Judge Timothy Kelly, who was appointed to the bench by President Trump, granted CNN’s request for a restraining order temporarily restoring Mr. Acosta’s press access to the White House while the case proceeds. Lawyers for Mr. Acosta, the network’s chief White House correspondent, argued that the unusual revocation of a reporter’s press pass by the White...
