No danger to the free media. Plenty of reporters allowed to stay in the WH press corps. Acosta has shown unacceptable behavior since the election and what he did yesterday warrants his badge getting yanked. If I was secret service and present I would have escorted him out right then and there.

In order to be a Secret Service Agent you would have to pass the psychological testing and assessment. :box: Besides being a Secret Service Agent is a poor career choice, note the number that get into trouble, poor pay, really lousy hours, away from home daily with this President.

No you wouldn't have escorted Acosta out. That would require you to leave your post, when the President wasn't in any danger. Do I smell suspension...

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.


You are trying to reason with a President who thinks Reps lost the House because they didn't embrace him.

In the history of journalism, no breakthrough came from a mud wrestle in the press room. Most major stories are the result of hard and secretive investigative work. Not sure what Acosta was trying to achieve.

If Obama was in a similar situation, he would have put it eloquently saying he is not going comment about an ongoing investigation. But we all know Trump cannot walk away.

Acosta is a known quantity, granted - but all WHPS needed to say was: 'he has rudely spoken out of turn on many occasions, and does not yield the floor to other journalists and will be temporarily suspended.'

Instead WHPOS claims assault, uses a doctored video to embellish the point, and makes an ass of herself AGAIN for her boss. A little rich when considering the other allegations out there, not to mention the terrible performance in general at the presser. "I don't understand you" to four foreign-accented reporters...really? Been living in the NYC area 70+ years and still can't understand English in another accent? Unbelievable.

Resided in NY but lived in his own world. His interactions with anyone other than worshipful yes men were few and far between. Wealthy Manhattanites almost universally view him as a con-man, a fraud and a social pariah.

It's so funny because the video, be it from Infowars or not, was clearly not doctored. I saw it live on television, it happened. Get over it. He touched her. Whether it was assault or not I leave open to debate, but he clearly touched her.

Now, on AC360 he said he didn't touch her, after which Anderson Cooper aired a video where the part when he touched her was wilfully edited out. They are doubling down on fake news in an attempt to assault the President and Sarah Huckabee.

There can only be the following consequences for that:
1) Acosta's ban is made permanent for the entire duration of Trump's presidency.
2) CNN can't be allowed to name a replacement until further notice (at Sarah Huckabee's discretion).

We can't allow the enemy of the people go with the fake news unchecked.

It was NOT doctored. Again, I saw it live on TV. Stop spreading fake news lies.

Clear footage that is neither sped up or slowed down:
Today Show:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo33OUuclG4&t=3m27s
NBC:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ghTxVOhHMU&t=1m4s

Plenty more proof out there that CNN and Acosta are blatantly lying on their fake news program. Absolutely disgusting. They really are the enemy of the people.

You know people can compare that live feed and the doctored video right? That's not magic. It's not even that hard. And I know that nothing matters anymore and a wingnut administration sharing a video from a wingnut site is just another day ending in Y, but the facts remain that it absolutely is doctored, and it is from Infowars. Now if you can find any evidence it was *not* doctored, we'd all love to hear it. Good luck.

Um, just, no. Multiple video editing professionals are opining that the video Sanders used was clearly edited. You still won't address my point that they didn't need a damn video or assault claim, and could simply say Acosta doesn't yield to other members of the press. Instead, LIES.

People buying into and spreading the obvious lie that the video was "doctored" only confirm the "enemy of the people" phrase. If you want to live in alternate reality, go ahead. Just keep it to yourself. If you don't, you will be called out.

Right, because the citizens' protectorate always knows more than professionals who are masters of their field. That BS will be called out too. Altering the video's speed to make things look more aggressive is an attempt to change the perception of the event - this is inarguable.

But anyway - it's not what we should be talking about and is an obvious distraction from a snowflakey press conference that was a total bloody mess.

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.


I just LOVE how you know what Trump is thinking, especially about diversity (since his rallies are the most diverse group of old white people EVER!). :lol:
And several reporters ask/have asked multiple questions; of course since you’ve watched ALL 2 or 3 of Trump’s “pressers,” you no doubt know that. :roll:

And seriously, don’t post obviously- untrue bullshit here. You can’t be very old by the way you defend the indefensible.

Credibility doesn't matter to these dudes - only hero worship. After all, every video expert and WSJ editor is in the tank for Nancy Pelosi and Jim Acosta - CLEARLY, HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE IT?! lol

They take it as faith when this guy claims the economy is 'extraordinary' and 'the most prosperous ever' when facts are anything but.

The video was looped, zoomed in and slowed down. Absolutely nothing else. If you call that 'doctored' then something is seriously wrong with you. The pictures itself were not manipulated.

Anyone who says that Sarah Huckabee's video was doctored doesn't know what he's talking about and is telling an easy to disprove lie. So called 'experts' on the networks are either obscure people who want their five minutes of fame or are being tricked into ruining their professional reputations for this fake news story.

Meanwhile, with GDP growth at 3.5% annualized in Q3 2018, the WH claims the economy is 'extraordinary' and POTUS says there is 'the greatest prosperity ever'. LIES.

You'll note US annualized GDP exceeded 8% ten times between 1955 and 1970 in the chart here, if you change the setting to MAX.

I support stringent high standards for journalism. Any opinion should be labeled as opinion. I am not sure that CNN has anyone qualified to cover the events of the day. Nor does Fox necessarily. MSNBC almost certainly has no journalism on it. These are opinion brokers, not news organizations.

Larry King said this week, CNN long ago ceased to report the news.

By eliminating these performing artists from the "press corps," we might become better informed about what is going on, by real journalists. I think entertainment, comedy an farce are very valuable and good as entertainment, but there is no reason to consider it journalism or news.

Larry King was not altogether off-base, but he is not exactly an accomplished arbiter of impartiality. There are certainly qualified people at CNN - particularly on their International feed we see overseas. Jake Tapper is also quite accomplished - you may not have read it, but he wrote an excellent book exposing how both the Bush and Obama administrations failed US forces in Afghanistan in myriad ways.

And if you are being serious ( which I don’t think you are at this point, much like this strange “seahawk” person), then I think you need professional help before we hear about the next mass shooting.

I think you are right, these organizations have good reporters... just poorly led... I see mind boggling editorial misconduct throughout the US flagship organizations. It is so casual. There needs to be a rating system of objectivity that will pick up on bogus articles. I think this is one of the challenges of our time. We all want fair news, but we can't agree on what it is. We should be able to agree on what it isn't.

The way you write this, you give Fox the benefit of the doubt. MSNBC has never been news, so no need to include them. I know you Republicans hate hearing this but it all started going to hell when Reagan got rid of the Fairness Doctrine and media companies started making "if it bleeds, it leads" the basis for their whole being. Those are two separate topics.

We can't even agree what actually is news anymore. How are we supposed to set standards if we can't even figure out the basics?

What I think CNN should be doing now is to announce that Jim will be leading the Impeachment Team. That means he will start immediately on collection of Swamp Mouth's actions over the past few years that could lead to Impeachment/Indictment. Gathering data, reports, legal opinions against Trump, etc. Build the files, databases, etc. CNN can probably lead the news media in filing Freedom of Information requests.

I can think of nothing that will drive Trump nuts that news media companies getting ready for Impeachment Hearings. Trump's behavior after the election does show he is in a huge panic and will continue making dumb decisions - like putting Whitaker in the DoJ at a level he has no legal authority to work at. The Constitution REQUIRES that the AG gets approved by the Senate and Whitaker has no such approval. Everything he does will therefore have no legal standing, except in the mind of a frightened President.

Actually I think Swamp Mouth should be begging Jim to return the the White House Corps so he won't build very strong relationships with the Democrat Committee Heads. How many hundreds of hours of Trump spewing crap does CNN have on Video. That should scare Swamp Mouth.

They're using a pretty low bar for assault. Not sure if I saw the real or the (supposed) doctored video, but a nudge is hardly assault. Assault... let's put things in perspective here!!

It's doing a pretty good job grabbing the headlines. I swear that President Trump says outrageous things like calling this assault just to deflect from actual issues and the media eats it up. I'm definitely not in the "the press is the enemy of the people" crowd but they have been handling Trump extremely stupidly and so often drop real stories for the lolzy outrageous things the President does as a troll. Jon Stewart said something similar recently, some of these reporters need to be a bit less pompus and dramatic, Jim Acosta included/especially

Mueller was not fired and never interfered with in any way. Contrary to CNN's storyline. He is writing his report and it will be out soon. If it doesn't find anything on Trump impeachment is a fantasy. One you people afflicted with Trump derangement syndrome probably recite to yourself to calm your mental illness. If only for a short time.

Acosta will do nothing, he is a disgrace of a reporter and got what he deserved. It the WH had any sense they would ban him forever.

lol wut....you just making things up like Trump now? Things the Trump admin didn't even bother making up?

The video was looped, zoomed in and slowed down. Absolutely nothing else. If you call that 'doctored' then something is seriously wrong with you. The pictures itself were not manipulated.

Anyone who says that Sarah Huckabee's video was doctored doesn't know what he's talking about and is telling an easy to disprove lie. So called 'experts' on the networks are either obscure people who want their five minutes of fame or are being tricked into ruining their professional reputations for this fake news story.

You guys want to try again and get your story straight? Even Kellyanne Conway said the video was sped up. Why, pray tell, would anyone speed up the video, and remove the sound? For fun? Or to try and support the Huckabeast's lie that he "placed his hands on a...woman" where either video couldn't be more clear that that is a lie?

What I think CNN should be doing now is to announce that Jim will be leading the Impeachment Team. That means he will start immediately on collection of Swamp Mouth's actions over the past few years that could lead to Impeachment/Indictment. Gathering data, reports, legal opinions against Trump, etc. Build the files, databases, etc. CNN can probably lead the news media in filing Freedom of Information requests.

I can think of nothing that will drive Trump nuts that news media companies getting ready for Impeachment Hearings. Trump's behavior after the election does show he is in a huge panic and will continue making dumb decisions - like putting Whitaker in the DoJ at a level he has no legal authority to work at. The Constitution REQUIRES that the AG gets approved by the Senate and Whitaker has no such approval. Everything he does will therefore have no legal standing, except in the mind of a frightened President.

Actually I think Swamp Mouth should be begging Jim to return the the White House Corps so he won't build very strong relationships with the Democrat Committee Heads. How many hundreds of hours of Trump spewing crap does CNN have on Video. That should scare Swamp Mouth.


Mueller was not fired and never interfered with in any way. Contrary to CNN's storyline. He is writing his report and it will be out soon. If it doesn't find anything on Trump impeachment is a fantasy. One you people afflicted with Trump derangement syndrome probably recite to yourself to calm your mental illness. If only for a short time.

Acosta will do nothing, he is a disgrace of a reporter and got what he deserved. It the WH had any sense they would ban him forever.


Obviously that would run into some problems:

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.


“Blue tsunami didn’t happen”

2018 midterms was the biggest loss for Republicans since watergate. The tsunami did indeed occur.

Lol. Facts: Both Clinton and Obama suffered much more severe losses in their first midterms. Clinton in 1994 lost 54 seats in the House, Obama in 2010 even managed to lose 63. Trump losing 35 seats is a long way from a blue wave, let alone a tsunami. While it may technically be true that this was the biggest loss of seats for the GOP since watergate, it pales to what Democrats usually lose. So don't be so cocky.

Of course Mueller was not fired - the person he was reporting to (Rosenberg) is a man of integrity. Swamp Mouth's selection for "Acting" AG has not been confirmed by the Senate and his decisions/actions can be pretty easily challenged in Federal Courts, Now this guy does look like Mr. Clean (since he has shaved his hair) but in the past he has said in public that cutting funding to Mueller's is more effective in shutting him down. I doubt that Mr Clean will be around long. The last thing he will want is to be forced to appear between multiple committees to testify under oath.

In terms of CNN and Acosta, all media organizations build extensive files of people who are well know tot eh public. One reason is in the event they suddenly die there will be a solid files to write/present newsworthy. Trump has a mass of history and a lot of it is not flattering. CNN and other media outlets have been collecting both the good (when they can find it) and the bad - starting with the Access Hollywood Bus ride video.

I doubt if you have any special knowledge about "soon" the report will be out. With the changes from the election there may well be new evidence that opens more doors. Remember how the Whitewater deal lead to oral sex years later? Trump simply gets the sex on video before the election.

You do need to remember that it is Trump who is afflicted with Trump derangement syndrome, not me, independents, Democrats and/or Republicans who cannot stand him.

Maybe that’s how you do it in Russia with Putin the Murderer but we do things a bit differently here.

And frankly, the only reason Acosta has become “The Story” is because Trump called him out by name and continues to do so, while insulting CNN. Perhaps we should put HIM in jail.

Again, some folks seem to think asking uncomfortable questions to a President is disrespectful. Actually, a TRUE PATRIOTIC AMERICAN would absolutely ask those questions and hold leaders accountable.

Acosta became a story ONLY because Trump the Fuckup called him out and made him the story. Because he’s not used to anyone daring to stand up to him, let alone a reporter from CNN. There is NO other reason and any suggestion he isn’t a consummate journalist should be met with the derision it deserves.

Anyone supporting Trump at this point should be investigated him-/herself after this debacle is over and humiliated a la Nazi collaborators. There is quite enough now to impeach Trump without Mueller’s report, and only the Republican Congress has protected him thus far.

If I were Mitch McConnell, I’d be ordering Door Dash from now on. I’d be setting up shop in front of his house if I still lived in Louisville and greeting him every day with a chorus of “love.”

Even for those who don’t like Acosta, I don’t see how they find comfort in Trumpy’s unhinged, blathering, cry-baby, embarrassing ... wait I should use one of the many meaningless and empty Trumpy words “absolutely DISGRACEFUL” ... response.

“But he’s fighting back” they say.

What a load of crap if people think THAT is “fighting back” and not just being a whiny little, er, witch.

The way you write this, you give Fox the benefit of the doubt. MSNBC has never been news, so no need to include them.

Those are two separate topics.

We can't even agree what actually is news anymore. How are we supposed to set standards if we can't even figure out the basics?


I apologize because Fox isn't news either. I think Vice breaks a decent amount of news. Breitbart actually breaks news. Which is just so embarrassing, while the NYT is navel gazing or engaging in seances about social justice half the time. NYT still breaks news.

Fox breaks every rule. CNN used to be a trusted news source like BBC. They're silly sauce now. But I agree we should look at individual articles. So how about this one. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/11/worl ... e=Homepage

Right now, NYT is really pursuing the Saudi Crown Prince for killing that journalist. I think that's just fine. But I am troubled by the implication - the NYT is run by people who think they run the WORLD. They think they are more powerful than the House of Saud. And they may be right. Trump is not going to take down the Crown Prince.

The NYT is a mouthpiece for today's well educated, wealthy America. I think the Crown Prince will need to go, because this wealthy group of friends wants him to go. He is playing with real power, the power in New York. Salman probably thought he was a big dog and going to build a great legacy. But he's going to go down in history as a failure, because he upset the media / billionaires in NYC. The article contains a subtle form of bias - undue weight and false timeliness. Saudi Arabia kills people all the time. It's literally not news. But, we are witnessing a serious power play about this. The article is part of the power play. Just my commentary on tonight's news.

The United States has no news. CNN, Fox, Vice, and Bretibart have agendas. That is not news.

You are arguing semantics but he raised his hand to stop her from doing her job and taking his mic. Again if I was there he would have been escorted out of the room. With force if he resisted. He has shown he is not going to play by the rules and is not asking questions but arguing with the president. Unless he wants to become a member of congress of the opposing party he better change his ways.

My understanding is that Democracy relies on a Free Press challenging the Executive and holding them to account.

If the Press are only there to write down and publish what the President says then you are in a dangerous place.

Prof of which came from a doctored Infowars video. In case you are unfamiliar with Infowars and Alex Jones let me educate you. Alex Jones is the guys who says 9-11 was an inside job planned and orchestrated by the Bush Administration. He also says Sandyhook never happened and was just conspiracy by the Obama Administration to take away everyone's guns.

Do you agree with this? If the answer is yes then there is something seriously wrong with you.. If the answer is no, then why aren't you asking why is the Trump Administration using a doctored video from a wacko conspiracy website? Which means they are either ignorant/ incompetent or they are knowingly trying to deceive people such as yourself. In other words they are playing you for a fool.

That is just a reflex, not an assault.

The world is actually seeing the virtues of the oldest democracy.
Indian media actually ran a piece, they think no reporter would dare to question nation's leader like that and still employed and live and kicking.

Three most popular late-night comedy shows spend half of their time mocking Trump, still, everyone just enjoys.

We ignore the freedoms we enjoy in this country.
