Media Rallies Around CNN in White House Fight Over Press Access

Donald Trump, Jim Acosta. President Donald Trump watches as a White House aide reaches to take away a microphone from CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a news conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington. CNN is suing the Trump administration, demanding that Acosta's press credentials to cover the White House be returned. The administration revoked them last week following President Trump's contentious news conference, where Acosta refused to give up a microphone when the president said he didn't want to hear anything more from himMedia CNN vs Trump, Washington, USA - 07 Nov 2018

Even Trump-favored Fox News sees a CNN reporter being banned from covering the White House as an unacceptable move against the press.
