On Wednesday night, CNN issued a statement defending the actions of their WH reporter Jim Acosta.
CNN wanted to get their defense on record in regards to Acosta losing his press credentials earlier Wednesday evening.
“The White House announced tonight that it has revoked the press pass of CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta. It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today’s press conference. In an explanation, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied. She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened. This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders accused Acosta of “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern,” which pointed to Acosta placing his hand on the WH aide.
Acosta had his time, and he didn’t want to give up the mic and even accosted the female intern when she was trying to do her job. I guess that is CNN’s war on women. No one else in the press pool will admit it but they’re all glad drama queen Acosta got the boot.
One more thing, I don’t think Acosta or CNN are all that offended. In their view, this adds to their anti-Trump bona fides, which (by Zucker’s admission) is now their basic business model. Stating this is just the standard response.
