A Little Truth About Jim Acosta and the CNN-Trump Dispute

Fox News announces support of CNN’s suit against Trump says they’ll file court brief backing them

CNN's lawsuit threatens to throw its owner, AT&T Inc., and the Trump administration back in court just months after the two sides squared off before a judge over whether AT&T can buy Time Warner Inc.

Legendary Watergate reporter Bob Woodward does not support CNN's decision to file a lawsuit against the White House and government officials for revoking the permanent press pass of the network's White House correspondent, Jim Acosta. "We intend to file an amicus brief with the US District Court".

The Trump administration has said that no journalist has a "first amendment right" to enter the White House and argued that it has "broad discretion" to decide who gets given a press pass. The point is that this White House delivered an uppercut to CNN and the elite media that hates them. Trump barked at Acosta, "I tell you what: CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them".

Acosta did not immediately surrender the microphone and continued to speak.

The White House also claimed CNN and Acosta did "not demonstrate the type of irreparable injury necessary" for their claim. Because it signals that, while the president has certainly been very vociferous in the last week especially in attacking individual journalists such as Jim Acosta, that there are excesses on the media side as well.

That contact has been widely debated, with CNN downplaying it, while the White House said it was a physical assault on the woman, and used that as one justification for revoking Mr. Acosta's press pass. "This was not the first time this reporter has inappropriately refused to yield to other reporters", Sanders said in a statement.

Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.

CBS News, too, announced that it will be filing an amicus brief in support of CNN, saying in a statement that it supports the White House Correspondents Association and CNN's legal fight to restore Acosta's access.

CNN's lawyers say the case hinges on Acosta and CNN's First Amendment rights; the shifting rationales behind the ban; and the administration's failure to follow the federal regulations that pertain to press passes, an alleged violation of Fifth Amendment rights. The cable news giant is requesting an immediate restraining order requiring the White House to return Acosta's press pass. "Reporters should be able to go to the White House and cover presidents without fear of reprisal". "He can not do that under the First Amendment".

In a legal filing on Wednesday morning, the Justice Department argued that it was "lawful" to confiscate Acosta's press pass, citing his behavior at a heated press conference last week. Acosta told the president that it was not an invasion and that Trump knew it, but chose to demonize immigrants.

In its statement on Tuesday, CNN said that being barred from the White House could have "happened to anyone" and if left unchallenged it would "create a risky chilling effect for any journalist who covers our elected officials".
