CNN files suit against Trump administration

CNN News: Does THIS prove White House FAKED video of CNN reporter ‘touching’ Trump aide?

CNN sued Donald Trump's administration Tuesday, alleging the White House violated journalist Jim Acosta's constitutional rights by revoking his press credentials following a heated exchange with the USA president.

CNN filed suit in U.S. District Court in Washington.

The White House had suspended Acosta's hard pass after he sparred at a news conference with the president, who demanded that the reporter yield the microphone and called him a "rude, bad person" when he did not immediately comply.

As Jost begins to report on the White House suspending Acosta's press credentials, the aide, played by Cecily Strong, walks on set and begins nervously shuffling back and forth and pointing to Jost while looking at someone off camera. "That is the First Amendment".

CNN said Acosta was given no warning of the action, and no recourse to appeal it. Acosta traveled to Paris to cover Trump's visit there this weekend and, although given permission by the French government to cover a news event, the Secret Service denied him entrance, the company said. Stephenson said. "You didn't like the line of questioning?" Sure enough, the White House's clip appears sped up during the actual exchange between Acosta and the White House intern.

The White House did not respond to multiple queries about the origin of the video. In a statement Tuesday, the White House Correspondents Association's president, Olivier Knox, said the organization "strongly supports" CNN in regaining its access.

Stan Lee, Marvel’s main man dies at 95
Lee would go on to develop not only Spider-Man but the Incredible Hulk , Iron Man , and many other characters. Disney on Monday tweeted in remembrance of the comic legend.

The comments followed Trump's attacks during the same question and answer session on CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who he called "unprofessional" and not smart, and Urban Radio Networks' April Ryan, who he called "very nasty" and "a loser".

Trump is known to watch a great deal of cable television, especially Fox channels, and to make decisions apparently based on that information. Acosta then tried to pose a question about "pipe bombs" before he was again interrupted by another outburst. But it is unclear as to why Ms. Sanders, the Press Secretary of White House, chose to post a poor-quality video in her defence when she has access to video recordings of better quality.

Trump told Acosta at the news conference that "CNN should be ashamed of itself, having you work for them".

"Otherwise, what's the criterion for pulling someone's press credentials?"

Immediately following the incident, CNN sent out a statement via Twitter, decrying the White House and Trump's attack. In once infamous incident he flailed his arms mocking a disabled New York Times journalist.

Abrams posited on "Reliable Sources" on Sunday that CNN might be reluctant to sue because the president already likes to portray the network as his enemy.
