CNN is really upset about their stooge Jim Acosta losing his access to the White House. In fact, they’re so mad that they’ve filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration.
FOX News reports:
CNN files lawsuit against Trump Administration to restore Jim Acosta’s White House credential
CNN filed a federal lawsuit against the Trump Administration on Tuesday demanding that the White House restore the press credential of star reporter Jim Acosta after it was suspended last week — but the Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the move “more grandstanding from CNN.”
The White House yanked Acosta’s pass after he got into a contentious debate with President Trump and refused to give up a microphone as the entire press pool looked on. It was just the latest case of Trump clashing with Acosta, the White House correspondent for the network Trump regularly derides as a purveyor of “fake news.”
“The wrongful revocation of these credentials violates CNN and Acosta’s First Amendment rights of freedom of the press, and their Fifth Amendment rights to due process,” CNN said in a statement. “We have asked the court for an immediate restraining order requiring the pass to be returned to Jim, and will seek permanent relief as part of this process.”
Once again, CNN is making itself part of the news rather than reporting it. That has been their major mistake throughout the Trump era. Everyone sees this but them.
