I'm loving this. Acosta is a miserable piece of excrement.
I wonder how long it will take before a lawsuit is filed

I'm surprised. I thought Trump was just keeping him around because he made him and Sarah look even more reasonable and intelligent by comparison.

To bad the chick that took the microphone didn’t “accidentally” pop him in the nose with it.

Would have made some great headlines.

I would love, love, love to see him charged with assault.  Hard to argue, when there is clear videotape of him striking that woman.

I guess CNN is trying to spin this as happening as retaliation for "tough" questions.  Honestly, if the questions were the reason, this would have happened months ago or more.  This is what happens when you act like a jerk.  You get no slack when you cross the line.

They need to teach the interns that move.

I think the first 5 or 6 or 12 reporters would be surprised, but eventually they'd learn. Maybe not Acosta and Ryan, but most of them.

Does anyone think that banning Acosta was unwarranted? I have a non liberal but also non Trump fan zuckbook friend who thinks it's the end of the republic.

Me, I have  other ideas for Acosta, none polite.

The man refused to stop after his allotted questions, pushed and physically struggled with a young woman only trying to do her job.

Completely justified in booting the grandstanding "martyr".

Agreed.

Also: attending a White House press conference is a privilege, not a right.  Attendees are expected to behave themselves.  There are consequences for not doing so.

Nope.

Late, perhaps, even overdue, but ... unwarranted? No way, Jose.

My opinion is this whole thing centers around decorum. Some idea has sprung forth that to prove we have a free press reporters have to be jackasses. Whatever happened to take the BS answer, thank you Mr. President, sit down, and then roast him on the Sunday talk shows?

Orange man bad took about seventy questions from the assembled throng, I am struggling to see the free press suppression.

I guess I come down a little bit on an authoritarian side with this, too much military learning to respect the uniform, position, office what have you, even if you despise the man.

Someone needs to do a compilation video of press vs. Obama compared to press vs. Trump. I seem to remember Obama could go for ten minutes of beautiful speaking, never answer the question and the reporter sat down happy. Now we have Trump getting a 90% unfavorable coverage? Is he really doing that bad?

If CNN were banned, that would be another debate. A loudmouthed bully that works for CNN? No problem.

I also saw that CNN and others are running with "Trump doctored the video to make it look lke Acosta hit her harder than he did" while ignoring Acosta telling everyone that he never laid a hand on her.

Since when does freedom of the press mean that someone *HAS* to answer them?

I've never seen anything that says the President has to even let them into the White House or talk to them at all.

That said, I'm kind of disappointed they gave Acosta the boot. I want to see more Trump verbally bitch slapping the press and Acosta gives him plenty of opportunities.

They seem to be running hard with the "doctored video" line, https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2018/11/08/white-house-shares-doctored-video-support-punishment-journalist-jim-acosta/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.765381243c69

I don't even see a difference between the "doctored" and undoctored version.
They seem to be going into Alex Jones territory.  cheesy

I think that's why the White House tolerated him for so long. It's been clear for some time that he intentionally disrupts by grandstanding. This was a good time to smack him around, and spin it as defense of the weaker sex.

Fake news. I don't even buy that Acosta was particularly mean to the girl. The fact that he refused to surrender the microphone, physically resisted, and still disrupted proceedings after relinquishing it, is what counts.

And how about revoking the press pass of any organization that tries to spin this as "punishment"? (jk) I've about lost patience with every reasonable result of one's actions being labeled "punishment." Acosta is not a child (though he acts like one). Acosta is not being punished. He's being kept away from the White House press gaggle so that it can be carried out with some kind of order. Flipping snowflakes...

I can agree with that. It was more like brushing her away, which, if an old white guy did that, would have feminists raging about disrespecting women.

It doesn't help that she didn't have a good poker face. She knew how that altercation was going to get played the second it happened. *shrug* I have no doubt that's why they had a pretty young thing assigned to that task. Hold enough press conferences, eventually one of the contentious reporters wasn't going to relinquish the mic and *viola* instinct scandal.

*shrug* It's all a game and I think the Trump won this round, despite CNN's bitching.

He knocked her arm away.  The APS law team can double check me, but I'm pretty sure that would be considered either assault or battery.
