WASHINGTON—A federal judge granted an emergency motion to restore the White House press credential of CNN correspondent Jim Acosta—a victory for the network in a closely watched press-freedom case.

The lawsuit could determine whether the government can ban individual reporters from public buildings.

District Judge Timothy Kelly, who was appointed to the bench by President Trump, granted CNN’s request for a restraining order temporarily restoring Mr. Acosta’s press access to the White House while the case proceeds.

Lawyers for Mr. Acosta, the network’s chief White House correspondent, argued that the unusual revocation of a reporter’s press pass by the White House last week necessitated emergency action.

How about NO or you and what army, Judge. Or, as an alternative, no more press conferences?

Trump should just walk out without answering any questions if he is present.

Because the reporter is a Democrat. That's the way things work on Planet Earth.

Postpone daily press briefings entirely...until the court case is decided because it’s “under investigation” as per DOJ/FBI SOP, drag it out in court until when ever..or never.

In the mean time daily briefings are available on the

So Reporters are allowed to just scream and yell at the President? That’s ridiculous.

Just talk to press gaggles and special interviews.

Don’t bother with the regular press beiefings as long as CNN is there.

Enough is enough.

Trump should just say no and carry on, take it to supreme court, and if it does not work eliminate the briefings altogether

Simple solution - suspend all WH press briefings for the foreseeable future.

"...Trump should just walk out without answering any questions if he is present..."

no, no, no, No - bullshit!

just letting him back in reinforces this b/s that judges rule supreme, even over the most insignificant crap.

I heartily second x100 Truth29's in post 6.

The White House is NOT a public building if you and I cannot just stroll in when we feel like it.
