Judge to Rule Thursday at 3 PM on Jim Acosta’s White House Hard Press Pass

An initial hearing in CNN vs. Trump opened Wednesday afternoon.

CNN is defending their reporter to be as big a jackass as he wants when attending White House press briefings and harassing and shouting at President Trump or his staff.

Acosta’s lawyers asked Judge Timothy J. Kelly for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction that would restore Acosta’s hard press pass right away.

Jeremy Barr from The Hollywood Reporter tweeted this out minutes ago.

The White House asserted in their case that they can pick and choose which journalists are given permanent a hard pass to attend the briefings.

They have been operating this way for over two years now.
The Gateway Pundit can confirm that they block conservative reporters from attending briefings all the time.

Tuesday’s CNN lawsuit against President Trump and several of his top aides alleged that the ban violates CNN and Acosta’s First and Fifth Amendment rights.

CNN approves of Acosta’s disrespect and hostility.
And the rest of the media supports this — even FOX News.
