Really
would you please point that out because I missed that part.
You do understand I posted the quote from the court case cnn is basing its lawsuit on and the case does not support cnns positon?
The case in question is about denying an application and points out specifically it is not intended for revocation of an approved permit.
It is in no way any kind of slope.
The white house has always controlled who can be in the briefings, where they sit, and who gets called on.

I do understand how from the outside the view could be confusing.
I linked the case, it is in pretty plain english, I encourage you to read it. It does not support cnns case.

No. Suppression would be revoking all twelve of CNN's remaining passes for the actions of one stupid reporter. That would be suppression.

Tell me, as I don't recall, were you this offended when Obama essentially went to war on FoxNews??

That argument has been debunk repeatedly by soberbacchus in this very thread.

Not much else I can really add... Except to say, it'll be an extremely slippery slope for the concept of freedom of the press, if this ban by Trump is accepted as legitimate by either the courts or the majority of citizens.
according to a fellow leftist, of course, case close.

Lmfao, plenty to add, you're just lazy and rehashing deluded liberal postings.

Well, I guess we'll find out very shortly whether the court agrees or not... for the record though, I stand by my opinion either way.

Nice, so you willingly choose self destruction regardless of what the courts say.

Meh, probably why you people cry so much.

Freedom of speech is a fundamental human right that should be afforded to everyone born to this earth.

If defending that fundamental right results in "self destruction"... Well, so be it.

When the POTUS tell you to sit down and STFU you sit down and STFU.


Or? What if the President tells me to STFU and sit down and I tell him to suck my nards?

Why do you guys infantilize anyone who Trump defames?

Journalists are mostly very serious people who have jobs of asking hard questions and trying to expose the truth.

Trump isn't above the law, he is supposed to be the exemplar of it.

I don't really understand the whole "violation of free press" angle so perhaps someone can clue me in?

Acosta is free to practise his craft as a journalist, is that correct? I believe that is correct but if anyone can correct me I would appreciate that.

Twist it however you want to justify your losing narrative 😌

The guy did his time and got his secret service clearance.

He deserves the right to scrutinize the president by asking legitimate questions... without the prospect or threat of being censored.

I'd guess that you'd find yourself on the outside, not able to even look in...

Just a guess.

Although, I have to ask, why would you feel it necessary to do that?

You will be politely asked to leave and if continue to resist, than an escort will remove you. Further resistance will result in an armed escort and most likely tasered at or on the nards, seared, not sucked.

But that isn't what happened, lol, leftist keep insisting its all about "tough questions", it's really a dumb cop out for leftist to run with because they can't seem to see this goes beyond that pitiful narrative.

You act surprised? When obama accused a fox news reporter James Rosen of treason and fox was excluded from briefings CNN supported fox.

On the plus side at least Trump is not trying to have acosta jailed. So were improving i guess.

Hahaha... at least it won't be a total loss for CNN. They get first-hand reporting on this story.

I couldn't help but notice this little tidbit

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday morning. It was docketed and assigned to Judge Timothy J. Kelly, a Trump appointee. CNN is seeking a preliminary hearing as soon as possible.


Yeah, this will go over like a lead balloon.

TheRedneck


Fascinating, could this be yet another ruse to engage the public in a "protect free speech at all costs" kind of deal? After all, if Trump turned out to be "The man who guaranteed the freedom of the press" through his behaviour and the press were to continue in their present form...I mean THAT is a conspiracy indeed.

That would make you a disrespectful little shi toddler like Acosta.
