White House plans 'standard practices' to keep reporters in line

White House to restore Acosta's pass with a warning

Shortly after a federal court restored CNN reporter Jim Acosta's press pass, the White House took nearly immediate action to contest his access, sending the journalist a letter saying his pass will be suspended again after the court's restraining order has expired, according to the network.

A lawsuit by CNN prompted a federal judge to restore Acosta's press pass after the White House suspended it following a testy exchange in which Acosta refused to give up the microphone at a news conference.

CNN argued in its lawsuit that revoking Acosta's press pass violated the First Amendment right of freedom of the press as well as CNN's and Acosta's Fifth Amendment right to due process. 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".

In accepting the ruling, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House would "temporarily" reinstate Acosta's hard pass.

The initial revocation of Acosta's press pass came after a contentious sparring match at a press conference, during which the CNN correspondent ignored President Donald Trump repeated calls for him to sit down and allow another reporter to ask a question.

He revealed, too, that White House staffers are now "writing up rules and regulations" for the press to abide by, including sticking to the agreed number of questions. The network's lawyers want the judge, Timothy Kelly, to give the Trump administration until Tuesday to file a response to that motion.

Fils-Aime didn't say anything official in his interview with Kotaku , but what he did say certainly seems to suggest they will. And now that's Nintendo's doing well again, the need for more Classic Edition consoles may no longer exist.

"This ex post facto application of vague, unarticulated standards to a journalist's access to the White House is not only different from your original explanations, but it is the same sort of due process violation that led the district court to issue a temporary restraining order against you on Friday", he wrote.

"What they said, though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct etc. etc".

"We're doing that, were going to write them up right now", the president added.

"It's fine, I mean, it's not a big deal", Trump said of the court decision in an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace.

Speaking outside the court earlier, Acosta praised the decision and told reporters "let's go back to work".
