Can we sue CNN for being the only news at the airports? I am asking for a friend.
Conservative Mark Levin weighed in on this madness by CNN who has chosen to sue the White House over removing Jim Acosta’s hard pass to attend press briefings. Needless to say and I will keep saying, he can still use a daily pass to attend WH press briefings. CNN claims he has a “right” to that permanent pass, Levin says no.
No one has ever banned a reporter because of bad behavior, and neither did the Trump White House. What we have here is a “news outlet” bringing a lawsuit against the sitting President over losing a permanent press pass. Needless to say, he can acquire a daily pass and still be seated.
In your wildest dreams did you ever think you would see this? CNN is disgusting, arrogant and full of bigots. They are really now just a Dem PAC or shall I say CNN PAC. What a stupendous waste of time. They will lose in the long run, and they know it. They just want to stir everything up.
#JimAcosta is not banned from the WH, he just doesn't have a permanent press pass. He can still get a daily pass.
CNN claims 1st and 5th amendment rights are infringed! America, do you see this mess? https://t.co/bFrrGbF3t3

I just read CNN’s lawsuit against the administration over Jim Acosta. It’s a very weak case, but if they get before an Obama or Clinton district judge, who knows. CNN hired Ted Olson’s firm, and he has signed onto the lawsuit. Olson was hired for a few reasons: 1. As a former Reagan official and lawyer for Bush in Bush-Gore, CNN hopes to make the PR case that this a bipartisan matter; 2. CNN hopes to make the PR case that it is upholding the Constitution against a rogue administration; and, 3. CNN has employed a top Supreme Court litigator.
Nonetheless, it is a ridiculous suit. CNN still has reporters at the White House and in the presidential press conferences; Acosta does not have a constitutional right to be physically present in the press room, anymore than the scores of media outlets that do not; Acosta can watch the press conference from outside the White House grounds as they are televised; the president cannot be compelled by any court to actually call on any particular reporter during a press conference; Acosta does not have a constitutional right to disrupt the press conference with his various antics anymore than any other reporter; and, a president is not constitutionally compelled to hold a presidential press conference. The courts should stay out of this on separation of powers grounds, among other things. No one is preventing Acosta from reporting or CNN from broadcasting.
.@CNN just sued the White House for not letting their reporter @Acosta continue to
—prevent other media from working by monopolizing Q&A
—physically overpower female WH staff so they can’t pass a mic to other reporters
Why would anyone support this?

Legal Insurrection not impressed with CNN’s lawsuit either https://t.co/8TosoYlm5H

Jim Acosta is protected by the little-known Article 66, Section 71 of the US Constitution which stipulates all Americans have a God-given right to a White House hard pass in order to scream at the President as long as they want to & play ‘hide the mic’ with WH interns https://t.co/T1REDENXhv

How about no more live press conferences until this is litigated? There’s no more Constitutional requirement to hold them than there is a requirement for Acosta to have access to one. Submit questions in writing, and we’ll get back to you. Don’t like it? Blame CNN and Acosta.
How many of you are more concerned about the biased questions Acosta screams during all press conferences then the lightly push back on the female aid. He is completely out of line with his arrogant antics and twisting words to make himself the story.
If Levin is correct and it goes to the Supreme Court, it will take a long time, and in the end, the network will lose. In the meantime, the public can hopefully hear real issues during the press conferences without Acosta being seated. I personally love the idea that Jim has to watch from outside. Does my heart good !
