Of Course Fox News Is Supporting CNN…
Would Fox News really want to help set a precedent where a President can ban people from news conferences because he or she doesn’t like them or the questions they ask? What happens then to their reporters the next time an angry Democrat might be in the White House…?
As Fox News’ President says: “Secret Service passes for White House journalists should never be weaponized.”
Still, that move spurred plenty of insane takes, like this one from Politico which insists: “Trump’s relationship with Fox News starts to show cracks”. Rest assured, the bond between Fox News and the President will be very much unbroken by this, whatever the outcome.
At a hearing before U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly in Washington, D.C. lasting nearly 2 hours, White House lawyers argued Acosta was not banned for his viewpoints, but for grandstanding and disrupting a press conference. CNN says Trump violated its reporter’s “constitutional rights to gather news.” The Trump-appointed Judge says he will give his ruling tomorrow.
