CNN has sued the Trump White House in an effort to regain correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House credentials.
Acosta was booted from the White House press corp after the Trump administration wrongfully claimed that he assaulted a White House intern that was trying to take his mic from him at a Trump presser.
Fox News, NBC News and other organizations are filing briefs on behalf of CNN. That news has to have both Donald Trump and Sean Hannity seeing red.
“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” said Jay Wallace, president of Fox News, in a statement. ” Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.” ABC News said in a statement: “We stand with CNN in believing that Jim Acosta should have his White House pass reinstated. We hope this is resolved swiftly.”
