  • 'A sword hanging over our heads': Trump discovers new weapon against media

    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...
  • No, Jim Acosta and CNN Did Not Win Their Case Today

    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...
  • Media Skip Farrakhan and Hype 'Nazi' Prom

    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...

    (1) WE are going to file in the CNN vs White House court an Amicus Brief in favor of the White House. Acosta’s actions are stopping our people from getting their questions answered, so that we can give our audience the real news direct from our President. @OANN #CNNvsWhiteHouse (2) Can’t believe Fox is on the other side, but they have direct communication to the President. We are lucky if we get a five minute interview once a quarter. @OANN #CNNvsWhiteHouse

    CNN ^ | Nov. 14, 2018 | Brian Stelter, Marshall Cohen and David Shortell,
    The first hearing in CNN and Jim Acosta's federal lawsuit against President Trump and several top White House aides ended with the judge saying that he would rule on Thursday. CNN and Acosta are alleging that the White House's suspension of his press pass violates the First and Fifth Amendments. Their lawyers are asking for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction that would restore his pass right away. They also want the administration's action deemed unconstitutional. CNN and Acosta filed suit on Tuesday. The case was assigned to Judge Timothy J. Kelly, a Trump appointee.
  • 6 Reasons the CNN-Acosta Lawsuit Is Lame

    CNN's war on the Trump White House is now entering the legal system. CNN filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia insisting that denying its chief White House shouter Jim Acosta a permanent press pass has caused "irreparable harm," and that Acosta has a constitutional right to shout at the president under the First and Fifth Amendment rights. How lame is this? Let us count the ways: 1. CNN claims its network is "significantly hampered," causing harm to Americans who "rely on CNN as an essential news source." As a network, CNN is not...

    CNN ^ | Nov. 14, 2018 | Brian Stelter and David Shortell, CNN
    The Justice Department responded to CNN's lawsuit over the revocation of Jim Acosta's press pass on Wednesday, saying in a court filing that the White House rejects the idea that it can't pick and choose which journalists can be given a permanent pass to cover it. "The President and White House possess the same broad discretion to regulate access to the White House for journalists (and other members of the public) that they possess to select which journalists receive interviews, or which journalists they acknowledge at press conferences," lawyers say in the filing. Both CNN and Acosta are plaintiffs. The...

    In what has become one of the dumbest stories of the year, CNN sued President Trump Tuesday. The litigation alleges the White House did not have grounds to revoke the press credential of reporter Jim Acosta, whom Trump berated during a post-election press conference last Wednesday. “CNN filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration this morning in DC District Court,” read a statement from the network. “It demands the return of the White House credentials of CNN’s Chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta. The wrongful revocation of these credentials violates CNN and Acosta’s First Amendment rights of freedom of the...

    Constitutional attorney and conservative radio host Mark Levin is weighing in on CNN's lawsuit against the White House. CNN filed the lawsuit today on behalf of correspondent Jim Acosta. His press credentials were pulled last week after he got into a physical altercation with a White House intern over a microphone. "I just read CNN's lawsuit against the administration over Jim Acosta. It's a very weak case, but if they get before an Obama or Clinton district judge, who knows. CNN hired Ted Olson's firm, and he has signed onto the lawsuit. Olson was hired for a few reasons: 1....

    In short, the case of Cable News Network (hereinafter “CNN”) v. President Donald J. Trump (hereinafter “Trump”), to use a legal phrase --- sucks.  I sympathize with CNN in the sense that they feel wronged that reporter Jim Acosta was bounced from the White House to report on the president and the news coming from the White House, yet they don’t have a legal leg to stand on.  The president has a right to allow or not allow anybody he wants to cover him at the White House.CNN’s claim is that the federal courts have the power to compel inclusion...
  • CNN Hides Anti-Gun Brady Campaign Affiliation of Doctor Trashing NRA(DOH!)

    On Saturday afternoon, CNN Newsroom gave attention to a Johns Hopkins Hospital trauma surgeon who has been criticizing the NRA, but the liberal news network, even while interviewing him, did not divulge that he is a board member of the anti-gun Brady Campaign. Dr. Joseph Sakran was first brought up on CNN early Friday evening during The Situation Room in a report by correspondent Brian Todd which recounted the NRA reacting on Twitter to a group of doctors who recently called for more gun control. Picking up on a tweet by Dr. Sakran, the report cited his views for much...
  • CNN’s Stelter Claims Media ‘Underplayed’ the Size of the ‘Blue Wave’

    CNN media reporter Brian Stelter is known for saying ridiculous things seriously and pretending they’re reasonable while leaving everyone else scratching their heads. He even once suggested it would be “okay” if CNN’s ratings would plummet 40 percent after President Trump left office. Well, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Stelter beclowned himself when he suggested the liberal media somehow “underplayed” the size of the so-called “blue wave” that supposedly swept the nation on Election Day. “Did the news media underappreciate the strength of the blue wave in the House on Tuesday night? Five days later it sure looks that way,” he...

    After the midterm elections, speculation immediately began on how the incoming Democratic House majority would use their newfound power to challenge President Donald Trump. Now, the incoming House Intelligence Committee chairman told Axios that Democrats intend to investigate Trump's attacks on the press. Rep. Adam Schiff of California said in an interview that will air on HBO Sunday evening that they'll specifically focus on Trump's statements and actions against CNN and the Washington Post. Trump has consistently badmouthed press outlets since the beginning of his 2016 campaign, but as president, he's taken specific actions against those two outlets that some...

    If this type of disgraceful display from the media continues, the President and his Press Secretary should no longer conduct news conferences. What happened this week should never be allowed to happen again. The President’s first post midterm election news conference was a rowdy spectacle at the White House. It was an 87-minute marathon with almost universally hostile questions from liberal reporters and combative answers from the President. The entire episode exposed the horrible relationship that exists between the mostly liberal media and President Trump. This type of craziness would have never happened during the Obama presidency. Of course, the...

    The New York Times, under pressure, has suspended its moneymaking “Times Journeys” journalist-guided vacation tours of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The 106-page printed catalog of 2019 departures hit mailboxes of Times subscribers this week. It includes trips to Antarctica, China, Japan, and the Galapagos Islands. But terror-sponsoring, Israel-hating Tehran, which has been a destination for the Times since the “Times Journeys” launched in 2014, has been unceremoniously dropped from the list. A Times spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a question about why the trips had been stopped. The US Treasury also didn’t immediately respond on the record to a...

    President Donald Trump hinted Friday he could revoke more journalists’ White House credentials, as he called one reporter a “loser” and accused another of asking a “stupid question.” Before departing for a trip to Paris, Trump was asked how long the pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta would be suspended. “I haven’t made that decision,” he replied. “But it could be others also.” Trump lashed out at two other reporters: April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks — who is also a CNN analyst — and Abby Phillip, a White House correspondent for CNN. CNN is a unit of AT&T Inc.’s...
