CNN's Jim Acosta's Press Credentials Revoked

Thu Nov 08, 2018 4:12 am

Finally. Long overdue, the White House has shown far too much patience with this horrible guy.

Jim Acosta has repeatedly shown that he is not a reporter, but more of an activist and a professional heckler. He has routinely spoken out of turn at pressers and refused to give up the mic on several occasions, not just today. He was far too involved in his resistance stance to be a reporter on the White House press pool.

It culminated today in him literally karate chopping a female WH intern who tried to take the mic from him after he refused to heed the President's call to give it up. As always, he had been trying to hijack the press conference by asking an endless slew of questions and deny other reporters the opportunity to ask theirs.

Now, I think it was wholly appropriate to use this incident as cause. But even if you don't think his getting physical was inappropriate, one can't argue that this wasn't sweet revenge for what the media did to poor Corey Lewandowski in the fake Michelle Fields incident. We got the last laugh.

I just hope that this will be made permanent. So far it's only "until further notice".

Once again the reality of the encounter doesn't match Trump supporters whinging outcry.

https://twitter.com/sarahburris/status/ ... 51937?s=21

The slowed down video of the incident clearly shows the White House staffer is the agressor in this incident, and Acosta is the defender. She has no right to attempt to forcibly take the mic off of him, and he has every right to prevent her - he didn't do anything violent, he merely stood his ground. If they didn't want him to talk they can turn the mic off, it's a radio mic after all. There was no need to attempt to assault him.

I don't think that any Trump supporter should claim moral superiority when it's their dear leader who promotes and celebrates politicians that assault and body slam reporters for asking though questions.

And I'm not sure what tape you're looking at but that's not assault or a "karate chop." He was clearly trying to stop her from yanking his mic not to mention his polite "pardon me ma'aam."

Heckling and speaking out of turn at a press conference is not free speech. Complaining about being thrown out afterwards is, and nobody is taking that right from him.

If Corey Lewandowski hit Michelle Fields, Jim Acosta certainly manhandled the intern. It's really that easy.

When did Obama, Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, etc. EVERY DO THIS CRAP? EVER? WHO?

There is video, live video, undoctored video, that shows Acosta did not do what you and the orange man baby and the shills say he did. You are simply defending the hate and lies.

Stop your fear mongering and lying.

Delusion and hyperbole I see.

-Does Acosta have a tendency to grandstand? Arguably yes.
-Should he have continued asking questions? Probably not.
-Did he "karate chop" that intern? Absolutely not.
-Did the so-called "karate chop" warrant a dismissal? No way

Not sure why it's so hard to look at this objectively. Even Right Wing-darling Ben Shapiro tweeted that the "inappropriate touching" argument was a farce.

What a world we're in where some can lose it over a reporter touching a woman's arm whilst in the same breath defend a man who would boast about grabbing a woman by her vagina.

Crazy.

I can see that some may not like that Acosta keeps pushing and pushing for answers from Trump but those same people also need to understand that without people like Acosta, we will never get answers from Trump but instead, just hear his delusions of grandeur, his lies, his falsehoods, his versions of reality. Without pressers like this, you won’t get to see Trump for who he actually is.

At the same time though, regardless of how far pressers push, he will still never answer a question he doesn’t like and will only ever act up like this, dodge, deflect or completely change the topic.

The questions Acosta was asking are totally overshadowed now by Trump’s playing up and the removal of access. No focus whatsoever on the questions of immigration or Russia. I fear this is absolutely want Trump wants.

I understand that some love Trump and he delivers the things you may want but surely you can’t believe what he tells the world and surely it isn’t defendable to have a POTUS that consistently lies, divides his population and the world for that matter, sows hate, champions wrongdoers and pisses all over bipartisanship. Like Obama or not, I truly feel he brought the world together only for Trump to rip all that up.

Only last week, on the subject of birthrights, I couldn’t help but feel bad for those American citizens born in the US and granted citizenship who Trump has alienated and made to feel like they are now lesser than other citizens.

Brexit and Trump make for two massively sorry states of affairs. Two nations totally divided.

Very true! There is a whole pseudo-liberal ecosystem that is hell bent on destroying the reputation of our Dear Leader Donald Trump, heckling him at every turn and preventing him from Making America Great Again.

If these pseudos cannot accept the reality of the new America that our Dear Leader Donald J Trump is creating, they should just move to Mexico or Canada. Hashtag #GoToCanada.

Is Jim Acosta a true American? His name certainly doesn't sound very American! Wont be surprised.

It appears CNN wants to be part of the news, not just report news.

Knowing very well Trump won't respond to some questions nicely, pushing him in public was unnecessary.

Reps lost the House and Blue Tsunami didn't happen, both sides are feisty. Need some cooling off period.

BTW, CNN doesn't have a problem promoting falsehood where there are in bed with the government (or) out of eternal fear. CNN-News18 in India.

It's not about asking the President questions, it's also about being respectful to the other reporters. If he gets to ask a second question, they'll all want to. The President doesn't have unlimited time. He wants to give many reporters the chance to ask, not just a handful of high profile people who are newsmakers rather than reporters.

President Trump does not shy away from calling reporters to ask questions that he knows will be critical of him. You can tell by the fact that the next guy he called after Jim Acosta was Peter Alexander.
Unlike probably most people here, I watch all of the President's pressers in full. There is absolutely no way you can argue that he is starving out critical reporters. But he does give more obscure reporters, some of them foreign, the chance to ask questions as well. Just yesterday, he called a Japanese reporter without knowing where he came from. He could have been a Chinese reporter very critical of him for all that he knew. President Trump likes diversity during his pressers. That should be to your liberal tastes but of course it isn't, because Trump.

So, what do you think, Trump is going to crumble and say "You got me, Jim Acosta".

If you want Trump to spill beans, show up with Big Mac at 6 PM. Now SHS, Conway and the Intern will hit the news circuit. Last Night Conway was asking Fox News to put the Acosta touching intern clip in a loop.

well, Trump lives with the delusion that people owe him respect and loyalty. The concept of having to earn both doesn´t compute.

Each an every person talking to Trump in public is orders of magnitude more respectful that what he has earned.

The media is just doing their job, I wish the president would do his. Instead all he does is lie about everything, and get upset when the press calls him out. All the president is doing is causing chaos. 24/7.

i don't get it why people are still not seeing who he is.

Poor snowflakes can't handle questions. Sad! Always fun to see fat slob Sanders get caught lying about assault, while she works for a boss who is synonymous with sexual assault. The Huckabeast loves the Lordt but she doesn't love Him as much as she loves lying!

Heckling and speaking out of turn at a press conference is not free speech. Complaining about being thrown out afterwards is, and nobody is taking that right from him.

Stop your hyperbolic panic mongering.

If Corey Lewandowski hit Michelle Fields, Jim Acosta certainly manhandled the intern. It's really that easy.


Being a politician at a press conference you have to deal with free speech, and aggressive questioning is that. It is needed sometimes to get the answer out of politicians who obfuscate and try to avoid answering the question.

People at Trump rallys are there voluntarily. many people can't get in. They cheer for him not because they are paid, but because they are enthusiastic. Also, President Trump frequently calls reporters that he knows will ask a critical question. Your statement that he does not call critical reporters is just false.

Acosta didn't ask a question yesterday. He made a political statement.

Sean Hannity is not a journalist and would never call himself one. He is a political commentator. That's a huge difference that unfortunately, liberal media does not make.

Where exactly did he say those people are there

a) involuntary and
b) that they where paid?

He said people behind Trump are swapped out if they dont seem sufficiently enthusiastic. If you don't know that, you either haven't seen a Trump ralley or you didn't give it much attention.

Which video did you see? He is asking a question when Trump predictably craps his pants.

Oh I think the "liberal media" is quite clear that Fox News isn't news, and most of its "journalists"...aren't.

Oh Christ "the sky is blue" is a political statement now to Trumpanzees. Nonetheless *then* Acosta tried to ask a question and Trump decided "that's enough". By the way. Where is Trump's concern for the caravan on the day after the midterms? Asking for a friend.

Those rallies are stacked in that they book small venues and the orange one tweets on and on about hundreds of thousands when the venue can only hold 5000.

I also would not be proud of being enthusiastic about racism and hate and violence.

Which is what reporters do. They ask questions and sometimes need to give background in order to frame the question. Just because the orange man baby does not have the patience to listen to the opposition....

And, yet, way too many people actually believe Hannity is a journalist like Acosta. He is not. Fox is not news, Fox is not "fair and balanced". They just keep repeating that lie to fool some of the people all of the time, as the saying goes.

How many press conferences has the golfer in chief held? Republicans are losing their minds over this for all the wrong reasons. These same narrow minded racists were all too enthusiastic to do THE EXACT SAME THING when Obama was president and, guess what? HE NEVER REVOKED THEIR PRESS CREDENTIALS!!! Bush didn't. Clinton didn't. Reagan didn't. Carter didn't

I feel like I have said that before.

I get that snowflakes are all mad because how dare anyone oppose their god. Get over it. This is what you demanded be done to Obama. All this opposition. It is called free speech and freedom of the press. Sure it is rude. It was rude when it happened under Obama and Bush II and Clinton and Bush I, etc.

How about instead of being angry someone asked a hardball question to your leader, you be angry that your leader is so happy and quick to silence the press?

Finally. If I treated a privilege with that much disrespect, I'd have been shown the door immediately. Acosta is a disgrace to journalism. He was not there to report and ask questions. He was there to make statements and to attack. In other words, he was there to selfishly hijack the proceedings.

It seems Sarah Sanders has joined the ranks with this fascist ploy to suppress free speech by someone willing to call out the lies.

They even doctored a video. Defending the white house on this one is not decent or good if you believe in a free press.

Sometimes people in western countries wonder about how autocrats get to do away with civil liberties and a free press - "wouldn't people be against it?"

Well, people like the OP are exactly how they manage to get away with that.

Knowing very well Trump won't respond to some questions nicely, pushing him in public was unnecessary.

How dare a journalist press the president to answer a legit question?! For such a tough guy, he seems to be a snowflake when it comes to the press.


It's not about asking the President questions, it's also about being respectful to the other reporters. If he gets to ask a second question, they'll all want to. The President doesn't have unlimited time. He wants to give many reporters the chance to ask, not just a handful of high profile people who are newsmakers rather than reporters.

President Trump does not shy away from calling reporters to ask questions that he knows will be critical of him. You can tell by the fact that the next guy he called after Jim Acosta was Peter Alexander.
Unlike probably most people here, I watch all of the President's pressers in full. There is absolutely no way you can argue that he is starving out critical reporters. But he does give more obscure reporters, some of them foreign, the chance to ask questions as well. Just yesterday, he called a Japanese reporter without knowing where he came from. He could have been a Chinese reporter very critical of him for all that he knew. President Trump likes diversity during his pressers. That should be to your liberal tastes but of course it isn't, because Trump.


The current occupant of the White House has held fewer than a dozen press conferences in two years.

https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/artic ... onferences

Compare that to other presidents. Republicans are freaking out over the most secretive administration ever and complaining that reporters are asking questions the few times they get to see his majesty.

Acosta was asking about the migrant caravan in Mexico that no one cares about anymore. Acosta also tries to ask about the Russia investigation. The orange man tells lies and lies and talks down and condescends to reporters. He does not want to answer tough questions. Period. Watch the exchange. Typical "I am better than you" and "shut up" from him while Acosta is trying to do his job. Shameful, really. This is not how a president should conduct himself. Why he has any support is beyond me.
