    President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.

    NBC host Chuck Todd on Tuesday criticized the White House's new rules for reporters at presidential news conferences, calling them "absurd" and predicting that journalists won't follow them. "These aren’t exactly pro first amendment rules. I assume there isn’t a single serious journalist in the WH press corps who would abide by these absurd 'rules.' Manners is one thing, but regulating follow ups is a form of censorship," he wrote in a tweet. The White House announced the new rules on Monday after restoring the press credential of CNN reporter Jim Acosta. It had been revoked last week after he...
  • The public now says only 9% of Trump news coverage is 'fair'

    ...Media Research Center have confirmed that 90 percent of broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his administration has been negative since the president took office almost two years ago. Now comes confirmation of blatant bias across the entire news media from another source. “Respondents decisively side against the media when it comes to fair and unbiased coverage of the President and Republicans,” says a new survey from McLaughlin & Associates which reveals that only 9 percent of Americans now say that news coverage in general is “fair or not biased” regarding Mr. Trump and the GOP.

    CNN seems to have forgotten the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for." After filing suit over the revocation of Jim Acosta's hard pass to the White House and winning, that network's media beat reporter is upset. Speaking on CNN's Newsroom, Brian Stelter seems certain that danger lurks in the new open and transparent rules provided by the White House in response to the judge's demand for due process on decisions over revocation of access to press conferences or the White House. Joe DePaolo of Mediaite writes: Brian Stelter stated his belief that nothing has been resolved, and the...

    As a journalism professor, I have mixed feelings about Friday’s federal court ruling that the White House must reinstate Jim Acosta's press credentials. Ultimately, it may prove to be a pyrrhic victory as the entire press could lose much greater access from the fallout. To be clear, Acosta is no First Amendment hero. His antics set a bad example that makes it harder for me to teach students responsible reporting. The CNN White House correspondent has been rude and unprofessional for President Trump’s entire time in office, and purposely so, to make himself a front-page story. Most recently, on Nov....

    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.

    Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein said cable news networks should stop broadcasting White House press conferences and briefings in their entirety because they have become "propagandist exercises." "I don't think we should be taking them live all the time and just pasting them up on the air because they're basically propagandist exercises because they are overwhelmed by his dishonesty and lying," Bernstein said during a segment of CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday, referring to President Trump. "Maybe we should be there, edit, decide as reporters what is news, and after the press conference or briefing is over then go with that...

  • Trump Must Appeal Acosta Ruling Based On Separation Of Powers

    11/17/2018 10:15:10 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 57 replies
    Judge Timothy Kelly, a Trump appointee, verbally ordered the President of the United States to reinstate CCN Reporter Jim Acosta’s hard pass to access the White House on Friday. The judge, who sits in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, has not actually posted his ruling yet, forcing us, at least temporarily, to rely on press reports for details. Predictably, CNN has called the ruling a huge victory for the First Amendment. However, according to numerous press reports, Judge Kelly took issue, not with any alleged affronts upon the First Amendment, but rather, the process used...

    Meanwhile, it’s a dog-eat-dog world of which braying donkeys approve Proving the old adage that “The Law’s an ass”, a federal judge on Friday granted CNN’s request for a court order that would temporarily reinstate ‘correspondent’ Jim Acosta’s White House press pass. In this case, the law’s not only an # but donkeys are riding all over it because it, in effect, gives a bullhorn back to a badgering blowhard.

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has been accused of sharing a "doctored" video of CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s interaction with a White House intern that resulted in the reporter’s press pass being revoked. Acosta's press pass to access the White House was suspended "until further notice" Wednesday, hours after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with President Trump. A White House intern attempted to retrieve the microphone from Acosta, but the CNN reporter resisted and asked an additional question – and that’s where things get cloudy. Sanders said the suspension of his press credentials stemmed from his "placing his...

    By producing a split decision, the election that was supposed to end all elections turned out to be fairly predictable. But it’s the day after that was unlike any other. The Republican president, the likely speaker of the Democrat-controlled House and the Senate’s Republican majority leader each started Wednesday by talking about working together to get things done. They talked to each other privately and talked separately in public about what they thought they could accomplish for the country. For most Americans, that would make for a very good day. Given the overheated environment leading up to the midterms and...

No, it’s true. Do you think they were actors? They weren’t actors. They didn’t come from Hollywood. These were people — this was an actual — you know, it happened a few days ago.
