Jim Acosta, CNN Reporter had his White House press pass revoked after a heated question and answer session.

Should reporters have their wings clipped, and only be able to ask nice questions in nice ways?
Is Trump denying Acosta freedom of speech?

Trump is fine as long as he is in charge but this is a good example of him under a little pressure from tough questions. He knows this looks good to the base and he hates not being in full control of the media.

Just another example of Trump taking a crap all over the constitution while his followers cheer him on.

Jim Acosta: Do you consider the caravan an invasion?

Trump: YES

end of story. Press briefings are not the Jim Acosta show. As soon as he kept talking after President Trump answered his question by injecting his own personal beliefs he should of been shut down.

No, not really, goob. Not end of story.

They are not the Banana Republic Don Show either. Somebody needs to remind Dictator Wannabe Don that this isn't The Apprentice. This is a time for real questions & answers - some of which are admittedly factually challenging for Trump to answer. However, we live in a country with a free press, and that doesn't give Trump free reign to go off on rants or rages, which he does all the time.

Very classy how he also went after Republicans that didn't embrace him and lost. MAGA.

CNN is suing to get Jim Acosta's pass restores and requesting a restraining order against him being barred from the press conferences. Bringing up Constitutional rights.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/cnn-sues-white-house-over-revoked-c redentials-of-correspondent/ar-BBPEQtV?OCID=ansmsnnews11


Remarks: Suing the President and members of his administration, all of this is a waste of taxpayer money.

1. Does a President have to allow a reporter who he does not like because the reporters opinions differ from his because of free speech?

2. Reporters are supposed to be objective and not put a slant on their questions when asking them.

3. Does a President have a right to decide who is allowed to come from the various news sources to the meetings? Can he request a different reporter if he wants to? Can he refuse to accept questions from a reporter he has a problem with?

The networks will certainly put their spin on events and answers to their questions, but the questions themselves should be objective and seeking to fact find not just start with a pre-conceived premis and then try to prove that by the questions and answers received.

The Pakistani media did a good job when they interviewed Osama, they would tell him what was said and then ask him 'what do you have to say about this?" They remained neutral in their reporting which is why it was better than US reporting which tried to convince you of their talking points. The British reporters do the same, they present information to the person they want to ask questions of and then they allow that person to answer the questions. There needs to be more decorum from the media. They should ask their questions then report the FULL quotes on what was said not edit and then try to sway public opinion to suit their own agenda.

If good manners prevail, there should not be a conflict in a White House press or any other breifing.

Yours seems like a post for a banana republic.

This strategy of Trump, Sanders, Conway, etc. is nothing more than reinforcing the idea that in a free country like ours, those 3 consider the press & media the enemy of the people because "truth" and "facts" are mutually exclusive with this administration.

The results of the election and rejection of Trump has put his anger & frustration over the top. Wait until the HOR starts doing overtsight in January - something that has been absent the last 2 years. Thank you, Mr. Ryan. Enjoy your retirement after being a lackey for Donnie for 2 years.

So you are good with his rants and condescending manner in which he addresses reporters when he is in defensive posturing mode and lashing out? He has a hard time accepting facts & truth. It is much easier to bash reporters than acknowledge facts or ever being wrong.

That should surprise no one. I guess Trump trumps the first and fifth amendments? Those are freedoms that anyone of any party affiliation should be concerned with.

How long will Hillary be a topic for you & goob - for eternity? She is no longer relevant.

Well, Republicans still bring up Jimmy Carter, so I would say Hillary will remain a hot topic for Republicans for the next 38 years.

And besides, how do you expect Republicans to defend Trump without bringing up Hillary? Trump is a disaster, so they can only defend him by bringing up a hypothetical scenario that in their minds could have been worse.

Fair enough, seems to bother you more than me. I brought up her name for the contrast; it's obvious we will never see eye to eye and that's OK.

Enjoy the day.

What do Libertarians think of Trump stepping on first & fifth amendment freedoms of the press?

I do not speak for anyone but myself.

Watch the video. A young female intern approaches Jim Acosta and attempts to take the Microphone away from him 3 times and is brushed aside. The President told him 6 times that, "That is enough" and still he pushed with his line of questioning. I hope the Intern sues him for assault.

I have zero empathy for anyone, representing and media organization who acts like that.

Zero empathy is one thing. That reflects opinions & feelings. The question is not about lack of empathy but about a Libertarian interpretation of Trump's attempted trampling on the first & fifth amendments of The Constitution.

If we want to relegate to empathy or lack of, then we only need to look at Trump calling out 3 black female reporters.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/what-a-stupid-question-trump -demeans-three-black-female-reporters-in-two-days/2018/11/09/272113d0-e441- 11e8-b759-3d88a5ce9e19_story.html?utm_term=.47428cec14a0

President Trump has made no secret of his contempt for reporters, whom he calls “fake news” and “enemy of the American people.” He’s also had unkind things to say about women and people who are African American.

This week, he hit a trifecta, singling out three African American women who are journalists. The women — Abby Phillip, April Ryan and Yamiche Alcindor — earned his contempt apparently just for asking him questions.

Trump called one of Phillip’s questions “stupid,” described Ryan as “a loser” and brushed off Alcindor, saying her question was “racist.”

Phillip, a CNN reporter and former Washington Post journalist, drew Trump’s wrath on Friday, after she asked whether he hoped Matthew G. Whitaker, Trump’s appointee as acting attorney general, would “rein in” special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe of Trump’s presidential campaign.

“What a stupid question that is. What a stupid question,” Trump snapped. He didn’t answer the allegedly “stupid” question, but he did pour more contempt on Phillip. “I watch you a lot,” he said. “You ask a lot of stupid questions.”

He suggested he was considering pulling other reporters’ press credentials to cover the White House, as he did with CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Wednesday. Among those he brought up in that context was Ryan.

“You talk about someone who’s a loser,” Trump said of Ryan, a reporter for American Urban Radio Networks and a contributor to CNN. “She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing. She gets publicity and then she gets a pay raise, or she gets a contract with, I think, CNN. But she’s very nasty and she shouldn’t be. You’ve got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect.”

Trump’s “loser” comment came two days after he admonished Ryan at a White House news conference.

“Sit down! I didn’t call you,” Trump commanded after Ryan tried to ask him about alleged voter suppression in the midterm elections. “Such a hostile media, it’s so sad,” Trump added as Ryan pressed him. “You rudely interrupted him,” Trump told her, referring to another reporter.

A few moments later, Alcindor asked Trump about his recent characterization of himself as “a nationalist” and whether that label was “emboldening white nationalists.”

Trump interrupted her and responded, “I don’t know why you say that, that is such a racist question.” He repeated that characterization — “racist” — two more times.

Trump has disparaged many people, so his responses to Phillip, Ryan and Alcindor might simply reflect equal-opportunity contempt. But all three of the latest examples fall into the categories of people — journalists, women, African Americans — for whom Trump has reserved special nastiness. Among the African American figures are Democratic Reps. Maxine Waters of California and Frederica S. Wilson of Florida.

“He’s not able to finesse his disdain for certain people,” Ryan said in an interview Friday. “Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately because you can see for yourself what it is, perception is reality with this president.&#8201;.&#8201;. He attacks the people he feels are beneath him.”

She added, “He’s not apparently built for this. Being in the pressure cooker of the White House has exposed him for what he is.”

Phillip didn’t respond to several requests for comment on Friday. Alcindor declined to comment but tweeted after Wednesday’s news conference, “I followed up the president calling my question ‘racist’ with a policy question about his proposed middle class tax cut because that’s what journalists do. We press on. We focus on the privilege of asking questions for a living. We do the work.”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders didn’t respond to a request for comment.

The attacks on the three women left Sarah Glover, the president of the National Association of Black Journalists, shaking her head.

“The most powerful man in the free world is verbally abusing journalists,” she said. “Donald Trump’s comments this week have reached an all-time low with attacks on three black female journalists.”

She called Trump’s comments about Ryan, Phillip and Alcindor “appalling and irresponsible. They should be denounced.”

Goob is right that a reporter cannot put his/her personal beliefs in an interview. They can only ask questions and report the responses that the interviewee or speech giver provides to them. The reporter can tell the person they are asking questions of what someone has said or about an event or policy and then ask their opinion or plan for a response or change but they cannot tell that person how anything should be.
