BREAKING: White House SUSPENDS ACOSTA’S PRESS PASS!
Jim Acosta just doesn’t get some of the basic tenets of journalism.
Even when you are asking questions to someone you might disagree with personally on something, you have to put that aside and try to be as impartial as impossible.
Shoot, look at Mike Wallace during the Iran hostage situation so many decades ago. He was sitting across a table from someone who was responsible for the hostages being hostages in the first place and he still kept his cool.
Jim Acosta can’t keep his cool for nothing.
So, what do we do here. Well, we do what we do with a relative for example that acts like a jerk at every family gathering. We kick them out and tell them never to come back.
The White House suspended the media credentials of CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Wednesday night, citing his “absolutely unacceptable” conduct for tussling with a White House intern at a presidential press conference earlier in the day.
The US Secret Service just asked for my credential to enter the WH. As I told the officer, I don’t blame him. I know he’s just doing his job. (Sorry this video is not rightside up) pic.twitter.com/juQeuj3B9R

“This is a test,” Mr. Acosta said. “I do think they’re trying to shut us down, to some extent.”
