White House suspends credentials for CNN's Jim Acosta

Trump blows up at Jim Acosta

He repeated that Acosta was a "very rude person", adding, "the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is awful", referring to his White House press secretary.

Perino, a former press secretary for President George W. Bush, said she knew many of Acosta's colleagues were privately frustrated with his conduct, which often appears more made for television than to garner meaningful information.

It is unclear whether Acosta will be turned away again on Thursday.

It's been another bad day for CNN, though Trump's favorite "fake news" network to mock, and its notoriously grandstanding reporter, don't appear to have figured that out just yet.

In an official statement, CNN said that "Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied". As I told the officer, I don't blame him. A White House intern tried to step in and take the mic from Acosta, but when he held onto it, she backed away. In between the two questions, Trump attempted to move on, but Acosta refused.

"So that White House intern should be arrested for battery". The Radio Television Digital News Association, which represents newsrooms across the country, called the revocation "unconscionable". He called reporters rude, hostile, unfair.

The removal of Acosta's pass is a sharp escalation of tensions between the Trump administration and the media.

On Wednesday, the White House shockingly pulled the credentials of reporter Jim Acosta, after the CNN reporter got into a heated exchange with President Trump during a televised press conference. They screamed "assault" and "abuse". The video is clear. It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today's press conference.

After asking a follow up question, Acosta let go of the mic.

The Raleigh-Durham area was one of 20 in the USA and Canada in the final running to lure the Amazon site, dubbed HQ2. In Denver, 16 percent said they were somewhat or strongly opposed to having Amazon to set up shop there.

"Plenty to criticize Acosta about", Ross wrote, "but he did not "place his hands" on the intern".

The response to Sanders, who constantly echoes the president's "fake news" claims, apparently using an inaccurate video to ban a member of the press led to her tweet being heavily criticized.

"There's no evidence that the video was deliberately sped up - but the change in format, from a high-quality video to a low-quality GIF, turns the question of whether it was "doctored" into a semantic debate", BuzzFeed's Charlie Warzel reports.

In a later tweet, Sanders said the White House stood by its decision.

Sanders "provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened", the USA cable network said. "A free press is vital to democracy, and we stand behind Jim Acosta and his fellow journalists everywhere".

Press freedom groups also weighed in.

"It's such a hostile media", Trump said during his post-Midterms news conference, after ordering reporter April Ryan of the American Urban Radio Networks to sit down when she tried to ask him a question.

Ewen added, "This severe measure, paired with the president's treatment of several other esteemed White House reporters, is unacceptable given the already hostile environment for reporters in the United States".
