    We’ve come to know and love Jim Acosta’s ridiculous, narcissistic antics at White House press conferences, so it was all in all good news he was being allowed back in to make a fool of himself all over again. Friday, a judge ruled that the White House must give the CNN reporter (I use that term loosely) his hard pass back, which granted him access to the White House grounds. Acosta’s hard pass had been temporarily revoked after he refused to hand the microphone back to a White House intern per the President’s instructions.

    CNN) The White House has issued a new warning to CNN's Jim Acosta, saying his press pass could be revoked again at the end of the month. In response, CNN is asking the U.S. District Court for another emergency hearing. "The White House is continuing to violate the First and 5th Amendments of the Constitution," the network said in a statement Sunday. "These actions threaten all journalists and news organizations. Jim Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and the President." Last Friday CNN won a temporary restraining order, forcing the White House to...

    Federal Judge Timothy J. Kelly, a Trump-appointed judge, ruled that the White House had to restore CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass because it potentially violated “due process” of law, and since no crime was committed and no charges have been filed, I believe that Judge Kelly has no idea of what due process is nor what the Constitution states about it and should be impeached. ... I ask, Judge Kelly, where is the jury in this matter? Where is the crime charged? Where is it? Judge Kelly is succumbing to political pressure by a news outlet with a history...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) No, Jim Acosta and CNN did not “win” their case today, so everybody needs to calm down here. All the plaintiffs in the case against the White House this morning was an injunction in which the judge in the case, Timothy Kelly, ordered the restoration of Acosta’s hard pass to the White House grounds while the case is in the process of being heard and decided. Believe it or not, I think this was a completely reasonable action for the judge to take, since it ensures Acosta will not have been...

    Rather, they’re proudly dependent on an unaccountable globalism If you want to know where media bias resides, simply look at who the media isn’t questioning. The most recent row between CNN’s Jim Acosta and President Donald Trump reinforced this observation. On the heels of the Trump Administration’s decision to revoke the press pass for Jim Acosta (which a D.C. judge has since ordered the White House to reinstate), the “mainstream” media backed Acosta in decrying the purported assault on America’s hallowed First Amendment. Piggybacking on the mainstream media’s argument, the New York Times’ “True Conservative™,” Bret Stephens, shared his fear...

    God bless the work that the good people at Newsbusters do on a daily basis - watching liberal crap on TV and calling out leftist nonsense so that the rest of America does not have to. This time, Newsbuster's Brad Wilmouth snagged a clip from Friday night of CNN's Don Lemon's panel of liberal hacks (except one) accusing white, pro-Trump women of being racist fools who support white supremacy. From Wilmouth: Liberal contributor Kirsten Powers argued that such women must be "racist" because they voted for Trump, while UC Berkeley Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers argued that women have long benefited from...

    A reporter can ask tough questions and aggressively follow-up without being a jerk. But CNN’s Jim Acosta . . . not so much. Nonetheless, the so-called Clinton News Network’s lead White House correspondent is back at work, again in possession of his coveted press pass, thanks to a preliminary ruling from a federal judge newly appointed by President Trump. he judge’s temporary restraining order against the Trump Administration requires that Acosta’s revoked credentials be restored. It doesn’t mandate that the president call on Acosta when he shouts out a question. Of course, Trump may relish this continuous battle as much...

    It is disgraceful enough for CNN and other networks to allow such bad behavior on their airwaves, but the President and his Press Secretary have a right to prevent it from occurring during their news conferences In the aftermath of U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly’s ruling that reinstated the White House press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta, the President outlined some overdue changes that will be implemented. Hereafter, the White House will be “writing up rules and regulations,” according to the President. He also predicted that “if they don’t listen to the rules and regulations, we’ll end up back...

    Liberals love “virtue signaling,” the self-righteous act of letting everyone around them know they think they’re better than they are. When an old neighbor of mine found out what I did for a living, one of those “Hate Has No Home Here” signs suddenly popped up on their front lawn, for example. We never really spoke again, which was fine with me, so I didn’t find out what “hate” they thought had homes on the rest of the street. But I can imagine in their minds it was whatever kind of “hate” that was fashionable to be against at any...

    A lot of my fellow journalists are upset that CNN's Jim Acosta was banned from White House press conferences. Not me. I would prefer that all press conferences be restricted to the press, by which I mean the print media. I've been a print journalist since before Acosta entered kindergarten. For the first five years or so of my career I never attended a press conference that included TV and radio people. That made for a much more informative interchange between journalists and politicians. The reporters wanted simply to have their questions answered. The answers could then be incorporated into...

    If you wanted a constitutional crisis, folks, federal judge Timothy Kelly has given us one with the issuance of a temporary restraining order requiring the Trump White House to reinstate CNN’s petulant Jim Acosta’s press pass giving him access to the building in which President Trump resides and leads the Free World. Revoking Jim Acosta’s press pass did not threaten the First Amendment rights of either CNN or Jim Acosta. CNN is free to broadcast what it wants and report on anything it wants and Acosta is free to do the same. The funny thing about freedom of speech and...

    The administration is drawing up rules for White House reporters' behavior, and the president said if journalists don't follow them, 'we'll end up back in court, and we'll win.' CNN and Jim Acosta may have won their battle with the White House in court on Friday, but President Donald Trump has found a new weapon in his long war against the media. After a judge ruled that the White House violated the CNN correspondent’s right to due process by stripping him of his press badge, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declared that the administration was drawing up new rules to...

    Last week, the White House revoked the press pass of CNN's chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, and denied him access to the building. CNN responded by filing suit in federal court against the president. Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights had been violated, said CNN. The demand: Acosta's press pass must be returned immediately and his White House press privileges restored. "If left unchallenged," CNN warned, "the actions of the White House would create a dangerous chilling effect for any journalist who covers our elected officials." A dozen news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post,...

    Moment of Truth: It isn’t often that CNN gets a story right in the Trump era, but network correspondent John King actually offered an honest assessment of the Democrat-caused election chaos playing out in Florida. He said during a broadcast Thursday that the party of the donkey will have to find Left-wing judicial activists on the bench who are willing to “bend” Florida law in order to hand victories to Democrats Andrew Gillum and Sen. Bill Nelson. Noting that based on legitimate returns from last week’s midterm elections, King said there’s no mathematical path to victories for Dems unless they...

    If we are honest, the early conventional wisdom was Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams had zero chance of beating Republican Brian Kemp. She is a progressive black woman running for governor against a conservative white man in a deep-red state that Trump won handily in 2016. But the truth is: Her campaign was so good, and she is so compelling, that Abrams would almost certainly be governor-elect right now -- if the election had been fair. As the final votes are tallied, Kemp enjoys a razor-thin margin -- but it is the product of misconduct so brazen and unethical...

    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...
