I don't know what they were expecting. Trump always hits back. It's the one thing about him that is predictable and their reporter should have known Trump wouldn't let them ask the question. Pwease Mr Trump can I ask a question? lol If he wanted to have a chance of winning that engagement he needed to just ask the question in a strong and clear voice and make the start of the question so enticing that Trump could not help but listen to the rest of it.

I suppose there is strategy in trying to push trumps buttons.

Acosta said this morning, if anything people were telling CNN for awhile that they as a news organization haven't been pushing hard on Trump enough

Lol. Wonder what mouth to their ears was saying this.

Imagine the flip in stories in the MSM if this was Obama that was disrespected. We wouldn't be seeing "his way or the highway" on CNN. We'd be seeing editorials laced with racial undertones denoting a disrespect for the POTUS and an applause for him standing up to the bully. Instead we see directly the opposite. The MSM is a propaganda machine not unlike that of Fahrenheit 451.

Lock anyone in a room who doesn't care about politics and have them watch CNN

and if they come out with the conclusion that obviously it's an biased marathon of one sided news, they'll be jot down in the results as a "Trumpeter"

Ive seen plenty of pressers, as have you... I never saw Obama tell fox news they were fake. Hmmm


That would be because he has absolutely no huevos and has proven so for the last 8 yrs, with the exception of what he's been told to do by the people that own him.



As far as Acosta, yeah he was rude as hell, made me want to slap his pie hole just listening to him. CNN has been extremely biased against Trump and has been against any and all Republican candidates. I've come to have zero respect for any of our current so called "new's" organizations including Fox. Anyone that takes any of these news orgs seriously, needs a wake up call. We're being played by all of them, period.

Do you'll really believe you're being told the truth by any of them?

If so, can you please direct me to which one I need to believe.

I used to get a lot of what I would call non bias news with healthy discussions here at ATS, but that's not the case anymore. It's unfortunetly become infested with moronic talking heads on all sides of the fence.

You know, I have no love for CNN or the MSM but having a president openly remove journalists he doesn't like doesn't set for a good precedent on how the next 4 years will be. We all know Trump can't not attack ANYONE who criticizes him and if he keeps this up the only person at White House Press conferences will be Breitbart, the ultimate online FAKE NEWS outlet and who Trump appointed to his cabinet.

This is insanity and we're living in idoacracy.

So Ill address this AGAIN. Its a presser. Reporters shout over themselves multiple times. Acosta knew he was being ignored, as was his network, and he had a job to fix that. Its that simple. If youre a reporter for CNN and you let Trump ignore you the entire presser, CNN is probably going to remove you themselves

What we saw was not typical behavior for a reporter.... continuing to shout over another reporter after they have been called on for their question.



It was like that mexican dude that got removed from a Trump presser last year.

I bet he was hoping to get thrown out too.

And just which journalist did he have openly removed?

I believe swills was talking about the most recent press meeting, not the Univision incident in 2015. But, I've been wrong before.

The reporter said that his question wasn't even about the buzzfeed thing but he also said that since Trump brought CNN up (basically Trump just said "CNN built it up" in regards them) and because of that they deserved a response... Which is it? Was he going to respond to the buzzfeed fake news or ask his little question about the Russians that trumps heard a million times.

The reporter really instigated the whole situation resulting in getting CNN blasted by the.. well.. President, Just to ask an unrelated question about Russian contacts?

Press conferences have etiquette.. More so with Presidential press conferences. Yes they clamor over each other but once someone gets called you shut the f*ck up a wait for the next round.

Seriously.. Lol... Let me defend us by asking an unrelated question..

This.

Re-quoting because this is important.

Its like the Twilight zone at the moment, the Republicans embracing the Russians, and now effectively attempting to censor the press as well by claiming anything that doesn't suit them to be fake news.

The answer is to address the issues in a calm manner, give your side of the story and not engage in a slanging match. That is basic PR 101. The whole issue could have been put to bed by now.

But this is a 140 character Snowflake President, setting a precedent.

What a sad display in this thread as we see 'the people' siding with government when 'the people' try to ask the president (elect) questions. There was nothing that could be considered over-the-top in the question that was being asked. Could you all be any more transparent in your bias here?

And the audacity to call Acosta rude... rudeness is (sadly) what got Trump elected (he speaks his mind! he's not PC! We love him for that!). I thought it was about time we had some balls and left all that niceness behind? What happened, just Trump gets to be rude? Besides, Acosta repeating a question loudly is nothing compared to Trumps brand and history of rudeness.

This could get really dangerous when Trump has basically coerced the masses (albeit the minority) to give him blind pass that cannot be questioned. But we all knew this going in... didn't we. And we've already seen it in all the blind trust.

There is no disputing Trump. Do so and prepare for a tidal wave of spiteful lash-out and childlike twitter-tantrums.
Dangerous.

I guess you didn't read the headline? The point you're ignoring is that the presidents administration refusing and removing journalists they don't like is Dictatorship 101.

America and free press are sort of a thing.

CNN is the "people"?

For which people? Clinton people? Anti trump people? Unbiased news people?

Balanced news people?

Yeah I read it. He's telling him to have a little respect for our Prez or he will be removed as he should be. The guy was only trying to stir the pot anyway or do you not see that?

"Removing" is an ambiguous word.
Simply removing someone from a room is not a particularly dictatorial action- it would have been no worse in principle than the act of removing rowdy protesters from a Congress meeting. Or was that dictatorial too?

Looks like CNN just found out the hard way that being allowed to attend presidential press conferences is a privilege not a right. If the CNN people can`t conduct themselves in a civilized manner then they will have to do their reporting, of presidential press conferences, from the sidewalk of Pennsylvania avenue.

I don't see the loss in any of this. CNN is just another cog in the propaganda machine anyways, as far as I'm concerned we would all be better off without them and their so called "journalist".
