As bad as our media is as a whole, CNN’s Jim Acosta is in a class by himself. This week, during a Trump press conference, Acosta decided he was going to grandstand the president and when called out, refused to give up the microphone.
When an intern tried to intervene and take the mic away from him, he blocked her with his arm. Now he’s been suspended from even entering the White House.

CNN’s Jim Acosta has press pass suspended by White House, Sarah Sanders announces
CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass to access the White House was suspended “until further notice” Wednesday, hours after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with President Trump.
“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH,” Acosta tweeted Wednesday night. “Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Acosta’s tweet in a statement, claiming the suspension of his press credentials stemmed from his “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.” She called the behavior “absolutely unacceptable.”
