White House yanks pass of CNN correspondent

White House suspends CNN's Jim Acosta

President Donald Trump speaks to CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a news conference at the White House on Nov. 7 2018 in Washington

They insist on taking everything the man says hyper-literally and then critically analyze every goofy, bombastic, hyperbolic, or sarcastic Trump utterance or tweet. "You have to treat the White House with respect, you have to treat the presidency with respect".

"Well I'm not a big fan of yours either", Trump said. Press secretary Sarah Sanders called it "inappropriate behavior".

The video posted by Sanders only focuses on the moment when the woman tries to take the microphone from Acosta.

"That's such a racist question", Trump responded.

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration", Sanders said in her statement.

The White House yanked Acosta's press credentials after his controversial conduct during the fiery briefing with Trump on Wednesday.

CNN has been working behind the scenes on a resolution that would restore Acosta's pass. As the Society of Professional Journalists warns, "injecting oneself into the story or creating news events for coverage is not objective reporting, and it ultimately calls into question the ability of a journalist to be independent, which can damage credibility".




But some journalists - concerned about which reporter might be targeted next - have been calling for action to match the words. "Being in the pressure cooker of the White House has exposed him for what he is".

After gushing about Whitaker while claiming he doesn't know the man he tagged to fill Jeff Sessions' former position, Trump was asked if he expects Whitaker to get involved with the Russian Federation probe or rein Mueller in. "Surely", he wrote, "we must realize that if it works with CNN, this will just be the first time, and not the last".

It happens just like in the White House's version, but Acosta's hand doesn't seem to linger as long on the woman's arm and the movement appears significantly faster.

Journalists assigned to cover the White House apply for passes that allow them daily access to press areas in the West Wing. "What they fail to realize is it's not about me, and I'm going to continue to do my job and that's what they don't like".

"CNN is the lowest rated cable news network even though it has embraced a "hate-Trump" posture". She had tried to ask him whether he wanted acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to rein in Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Acosta was trying to ask the president a question when Trump moved on to the next journalist and an intern tried to take away the microphone from Acosta, who continued talking. Acosta, she added, asked several questions during the press conference. "And never surprising", CNN said. This arose from the fact that Trump trashed Sessions for months over his recusal from the Russian Federation investigation, as well as the fact that Whitaker has been on the record for over a year with his opposition to Mueller's investigation.

Alcindor pressed on: "There are some people who say the Republican Party is seen as supporting white nationalists because of your rhetoric".
