Noone in the press room has a right to be there as an individual.


I can see how you might think that, but think a little more.

They are the Press. This is PUBLIC PROPERTY, doesn't belong to Trump or his people. Belongs to taxpayers and the Public.

So how do they restrict American Citizens from being on Public Property?

Security exception. The Secret Service background checks are done before the "hard press pass".

The Secret Service though was not the one to pull this pass and no security concern was expressed.

The WH can say that they consider Acosta's behavior to be a threat to either POTUS or nearby interns, but they have not done that.

There is a case that CNN can make legally here.

All of this while agreeing that Acosta is an ahole.

Trump and Sanders however clustereffed their over-reaction.

I can see what you are saying, but think a little more...

How many reporters/journalists are there in this country?

How many do you think would like to have access to the White House Press Briefings?

And the answer is (drumroll)... a lot!

Now for the important part...

For both Security and practical purposes, access to the White House Press Briefing Room is not a right, it is a privilege, and imo, Jim should have lost that privilege a long, long, long time ago.

If I had been Trump, as soon as he assaulted the intern, I would have, on camera, turned to the nearest SS agent, and, so everyone could hear, ordered him/her to revoke/retrieve Jim's Pass and escort him out of the room and off the premises.

Legally they would lose in court IMO,

Good thing you at least added the IMO, because your opinion is so ridulous it is insane.

CNN has ZERO legal standing to sue for this.

And the Right Wing Nut Jobs that shoot random minorities, often en masse, deserve the death penalty.

As do the left-wing-nut-jobs that threaten and assault people in public, at their homes, and while driving down the street.

And you know it was intentional as opposed to a compression artifact because?



Because a compression artifact does not apply to video that is not compressed.

And perhaps you can explain how the Audio Track that accompanied the bogus footage selectively deleted where Acosta said "pardon me mam"?

Just two coincidental, accidental deletions to make Acosta appear both visually more aggressive and verbally unapologetic.

please don't start playing the morn now.



Fast or slow, he makes enough contact with enough force to bring her shoulder down. Is that at all debatable?

Would you let someone touch your wife that way? I wouldn't. Wouldn't expect any employee male or female to deal with that # either. Cry me a river.

The guy who made it says he "downloaded a GIF - exported it as an M2T video file then converted it to an MP4 before uploading to Twitter, that compression is going to make it not identical. But I did not "speed up" or "distort" anything, as this track from the edit in Sony Vegas proves. "

He then provides a sample that seems to show it is plausible. You're able to say, no?


You want to address the fact that every video shows Jimbo pushes her arm down/away with enough force to lower her shoulder? You want to claim that is acceptable? Or gloss over that bit and assert the video has to be "fake" so who cares?

Irrelevant. To me, his comment was not apologizing for touching her, it was saying 'Pardon me mam, I'm talking to the President and I'm not finished yet.'

As I said, it was long overdue, as was Sessions firing.
Things are really starting to get interesting...

Do most/any .gifs have audio? Is audio file recognition or embedding a supported function of gifs? I honestly don't know. I don't think so, but admit to not being a big computer guy.

He started with a gif he downloaded. Presumably that means it had no audio from the start unless you can demonstrate that gifs have internal audio support. So the answer to your leading question: "And the selected audio got deleted how?" Is that it didn't .

so are they still blaming Infowars and Alex Jones LOL....

Roger Stone is in Florida....Infowars...

Infowars is everywhere!! Heard it mentioned repeatedly on MSM today and Trump is defending them now.

One day people are going to get it. Trump is Infowars!

Isn't it just incredible how much influence they admit Alex Jones has?

Sure, he can get off topic sometimes but he's exposed a lot of lies

The fact he's been under attack 24/7 just says he's on to something "You know you are over the target when you start taking flak"

That's OK this whole thread was about Tucker Carlson and now we're all fighting over Jim Acosta?

Don't we have threads for that?

So he didn't start with a gif, it's all a lie? Sarah Sanders deliberately reposted a "fake video". The "evidence" that is fake is the guy that made it is lying. The evidence he is lying is ..?

You're better than that.


Why do you keep arguing about this particular video anyway when all the videos show he applied enough force to lower her shoulder involuntarily? Are they all #ing fake? You didn't answer if you'd let your employees be subjected to that kind of physical contact (nevermind a wife or daughter). Why is that? What's so awful about admitting Jimmy was asking to have his access cut so he could reap the outrage from phonies like you, and that he was completely out of line and doesn't deserve his hard pass to keep his circus on the road?

You're as bad as the media youre pretending to softly condemn. You use it as an excuse to try to score a political point. Noone is making them (or you) respond this way unless you're easily manipulated, and I tend to think you're too bright for that. Which just makes you a hack when you do this.

Not the first time...

You know what today on ATS taught me?

I thought I was in the way of the US Govs race to the bottom. The broad agenda to debase the USA and it's unique principles.

Today taught me that you are in the way too.

The press secretary for the President of the United States is selling the public a video that was doctored up to support their claims...and yes they didn't even have to do it. That's what makes it special-sick. It's just a social confirmation, a pulse on how the progress is going.

I think you might be an a-hole now, but something tells me you are a fighter when you recognize what is going on.

It really is not an (R) or (D) debate, it's about where this country is heading and who is steering the ship.

Propaganda from the WH at this level is new. You can scream about the last guy, but the current guy is breaking new ground.

When do good people stop competing in the death match and turn their focus to the box seats shouting orders?

This # aint OK.

If you can't see it?...Well then I will give you a hand on the other side of this if both of us are still standing.
