The Same Liberal Media Defending Jim Acosta BLOCKED Breitbart and Gateway Pundit From Obtaining Senate Gallery Press Pass
Last Wednesday CNN’s Jim Acosta once again took over the White House press briefing, started screaming at the President of the United States, refused to sit down, refused to turn over the microphone, hurled insults at the US President and took a swipe at a young female intern.
In response to this latest outburst Acosta’s hard press pass was revoked.
The liberal mainstream media then uniformly defended Acosta’s right to harass and abuse the US president and hijack a press conference.
The media even invented a COMPLETE LIE that the White House “doctored” a video of Acosta taking a swipe at the female intern.
This is modern liberal journalism in the United States.
** These same liberal reporters actually BLOCKED The Gateway Pundit and Breitbart.com from accessing a Senate Press Gallery pass in 2017.
As TGP previously reported, on Monday, June 12th 2017, The Gateway Pundit’s founder and EIC Jim Hoft along with D.C. Correspondent Lucian Wintrich and Media and Ethics Lawyer, Charles Glasser, counsel to Gateway Pundit, met before the Senate Press Gallery Executive Committee.
The Senate Press Gallery Executive Committee is a group made up entirely of liberal journalists and pseudo-journalists.
We argued the implications and the necessity for alternative voices in the room – voices that aren’t financed by special interests – but voices that are a specific and genuine reflection of the voices of America and every day Americans.
The Gateway Pundit was one of the largest and most vocal pro-Trump websites before the November election.
We later received a call from a liberal reporter that we did not win our appeal.
The committee’s decision was leaked to the far left Daily Beast — They didn’t even contact us.
We went into the hearing with good faith and with the expectation that we would be treated fairly and that the committee would listen to our arguments.
But we were told by Lloyd Grove at The Daily Beast that the committee rejected our appeal the minute we left the room.
They accused us not reporting enough original content. Have they even read their own websites?
Our readers would take offense to that.
The Gateway Pundit has over 20 million page views a month.
Has over 19 million unique visits.
The Gateway Pundit is listed in the top 10 of most commented websites.
The Gateway Pundit breaks national stories that are regularly cited by The Drudge Report and FOX News.
The committee’s arguments just don’t hold water.
And yet NOT ONE media outlet came to our defense or to the defense of Breitbart.com — the largest and most influential conservative website next to The Drudge Report.
Now these same people are defending jackass Jim Acosta.
