White House shares doctored video to support punishment of journalist Jim Acosta

White House shares doctored video to support punishment of journalist Jim Acosta”

The White House has stood by its decision to revoke the access of CNN reporter Jim Acosta after a fiery standoff with the president, and defended sharing an apparently doctored video on social media.

In a statement issued Wednesday evening, CNN concurred, saying: "The White House announced tonight that it has revoked the press pass of CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta". But right-wing websites and pro-Trump commentators alleged that Acosta mistreated a White House intern who tried to take a microphone away from him during the press conference.

'I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN, ' he snapped. When an intern tried to take the mic from Acosta to let the next reporter ask a question, he continued needling the president, who finally called him a "rude, awful person". A White House intern tried to take the microphone away from him. "Surely you don't trust InfoWars.?" he said on Twitter. Sanders tweeted out a video of the incident. CNN stood with us [when Barack Obama declared war on Fox] ...

Beyond trying to get their hands on the Holy Grail of US President Donald Trump's business dealings - his tax returns - House Democrats are prepared to use their newfound majority and subpoena power to go after all manner of financial records that could back up their claims that he's using his presidency to enrich himself and his family. "Sped up to make Jim Acosta's motion look like a chop", Shimunov wrote.

Perino, a former press secretary for President George W. Bush, said she knew many of Acosta's colleagues were privately frustrated with his conduct, which often appears more made for television than to garner meaningful information.

Matt Dornic, a vice-president at CNN, said: "Absolutely shameful, @PressSec". Its position has been supported by witnesses including Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason, who was next to Acosta during the news conference and tweeted that he did not see Acosta place his hands on the White House employee.

InfoWars did not respond to a HuffPost request for comment. "Some people saw that as emboldening white nationalists". He doesn't like that there are some white nationalists who are supporting the president. Trump interrupted her, calling it a racist question. "What do you say to that?"

'You are a very rude person, ' Trump told him.

Alcindor moved on to a different topic. Acosta, President Trump's favorite punching bag, got into a tense exchange about his rhetoric on immigration, specifically about the illegal alien caravan approaching the southern border.

Trump told Ryan, of American Urban Radio Networks, repeatedly to sit down when she attempted to ask Trump about accusations of voter suppression. He called reporters rude, hostile, unfair.
