CNN wins court order restoring White House reporter's access

CNN wins court order restoring White House reporter's access

CNN issued a statement after the ruling saying, "We are gratified with this result and we look forward to a full resolution in the coming days".

As noted by Sanders, U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly (a Trump appointee) did not rule on Friday that Acosta had his First Amendment rights violated when the White House revoked his press pass; he asserted that the White House indeed has the right to revoke such a privilege, but only after a fair process in which the facts are fully weighed before a final ruling.

CNN has argued that the ban on Acosta violated his First Amendment rights because it amounts to "viewpoint discrimination" - that is, the president is punishing him for statements and coverage he didn't like. They further claimed that by revoking access without any notice or due process, and without an opportunity to appeal the decision, the White House violated Acosta's Fifth Amendment guarantee of due process.

"The government must provide Mr. Acosta with due process", Kelly said.

"In response to the court, we will temporarily reinstate the reporter's hard pass", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

He described his ruling as "very limited" and left open an avenue to remove Acosta's pass with due process.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced Acosta's "indefinite" suspension last week after the confrontation at the news conference. She called his behavior "absolutely unacceptable". "I was asked a series of questions".

Many backed the network out of concern that they could be next to lose access to the White House, if they irk the president.




"What was going through my mind was 'Gee I hope this works out, '" Acosta said to reporters after he was given his credentials back. Last Friday Trump himself threatened more press pass suspensions for White House reporters.

The White House had argued the President has broad authority to decide.

At the press conference, which occured a day after the USA midterm elections, Trump dodged questions on a number of issues, including those about his role in contributing to the rise of white nationalism in the US.

"Thank you for telling me that", Trump said. "That's enough, that's enough", Trump told Acosta, as a White House staffer attempted to take the microphone away from the correspondent.

He said the White House position on that conduct was clear and not discriminatory. "Only they would attack the president for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of 1.5 hours including several from the reporter in question".

The journalist, who is CNN's chief White House correspondent, was barred from the White House after a contentious press conference with President Donald Trump. ". All because they REVOKED Jim Acosta's press badge after his continuous grandstanding and inappropriate refusal to yield to other reporters".

Sanders initially explained the decision by accusing Acosta of making improper physical contact with the intern seeking to grab the microphone.

"I was confident ... that our rights would be protected to continue to cover our government and hold our leaders accountable", he said.
