CNN is a fake news outlet. How is this a right? Furthermore, it is not lost on me, of all people, that CNN is suing based on their First Amendment rights when they have denied me (and many of my colleagues ours). They attacked and smeared us for our free speech event in Texas in submission to the speech laws under the sharia.
They adhere to the draconian prohibitions on speech under Islamic law. And they self-comply.
Speaking after the ruling, Ted Boutros, an attorney for CNN said the news organization is “Extremely pleased with the ruling today.”
“A great day for the First Amendment and journalism,” he said. “We’re very excited to have Mr. Acosta be able to go back and get his hard pass and report the news about the White House.”
Judge orders Trump administration to restore CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s White House press pass
CNBC, November 14, 2018:
A federal judge on Friday grants CNN’s request for a court order that would temporarily reinstate network correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House press pass.
CNN’s legal challenge comes in response to the Trump administration’s decision last week to yank Acosta’s “hard pass,” which gave him access to the White House grounds, after Acosta clashed with the president at a news conference earlier that day.
CNN’s lawsuit underscores Trump’s increasingly hostile relationship with many mainstream media outlets, which he regularly decries as “fake news” and “the enemy of the people.”
