CNN sues President Trump and top White House aides for barring Jim Acosta
CNN has filed a lawsuit against President Trump and several of his aides, seeking the immediate restoration of chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta's access to the White House.
The lawsuit is a response to the White House's suspension of Acosta's press pass, known as a Secret Service "hard pass," last week. The suit alleges that Acosta and CNN's First and Fifth Amendment rights are being violated by the ban.
The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday morning. It was docketed and assigned to Judge Timothy J. Kelly, a Trump appointee. CNN is seeking a preliminary hearing as soon as possible.

Both CNN and Acosta are plaintiffs in the lawsuit. There are six defendants: Trump, chief of staff John Kelly, press secretary Sarah Sanders, deputy chief of staff for communications Bill Shine, Secret Service director Randolph Alles, and the Secret Service officer who took Acosta's hard pass away last Wednesday.
The six defendants are all named because of their roles in enforcing and announcing Acosta's suspension.
"This is not a step we have taken lightly. But the White House action is unprecedented," CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker said in an internal memo to staff.
Sanders responded to the suit by saying that CNN is "grandstanding" by suing. She said the administration will "vigorously defend" itself. (Read the White House's full response here.)
In a statement on Tuesday morning, CNN said it is seeking a preliminary injunction so that Acosta can return to the White House right away, and a ruling from the court preventing the White House from revoking Acosta's pass in the future.
"CNN filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration this morning in DC District Court," the statement read. "It demands the return of the White House credentials of CNN's Chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta. The wrongful revocation of these credentials violates CNN and Acosta's First Amendment rights of freedom of the press, and their Fifth Amendment rights to due process. We have asked this court for an immediate restraining order requiring the pass be returned to Jim, and will seek permanent relief as part of this process."
The White House Correspondents' Association said it "strongly supports CNN's goal of seeing their correspondent regain a US Secret Service security credential that the White House should not have taken away in the first place."
CNN also asserted that other news organizations could have been targeted by the Trump administration this way, and could be in the future.
"While the suit is specific to CNN and Acosta, this could have happened to anyone," the network said. "If left unchallenged, the actions of the White House would create a dangerous chilling effect for any journalist who covers our elected officials."
Sanders pointed out that lots of other CNN reporters and producers have press passes. But to many journalists and press defenders, that's not the issue. Echoing the views of many journalists, the correspondents' association said the president "should not be in the business of arbitrarily picking the men and women who cover him."
Trump's actions and threats fly in the face of decades of tradition and precedent. Republican and Democratic administrations alike have had a permissive approach toward press passes, erring on the side of greater access, even for obscure, partisan or fringe outlets.
The ACLU, in a statement supporting CNN, said "it is un-American and unlawful for the president to expel a reporter from the WH briefing room for doing his job. It shouldn't take a lawsuit from CNN to remind the president of the First Amendment."

Nope. CNN could have one of their other reporters apply for the press pass. However, it's their choice to file a frivolous lawsuit instead.

Alex Jewns is a shill and it will obviously never make it to Trump but the salt alone that the petition would cause could be glorious. Throw it on cuckchan and around the normie web

WH press room access is a right, not a privilege
Good luck spinning that. If CNN has a right to be let in, then why not any YouTube "journalist"? I'm confused about how this argument's even supposed to work.

Yeah, they can. Remember, the Constitution limits the government's power and the First Amendment guarantees that the government cannot limit the free press - even if they're big ol' stinky meanie pants. That's been established principle since the very earliest of days of the country.

I'm surprised they didn't press the obvious advantage from this line of attack. If you just say Acosta sexually assaulted her, then, by their own rules, he's automatically a rapist.

The media has gotten so bold that when there's clear-cut video evidence of something happening they'll just say it never happened. Then they say everyone should listen & believe the press without question, and our democracy is under threat if people fail to do so.

dilbertman said Fox is just taking the highground and they don't care if Acosta returns.
If he returns then faux can talk about how he's being a dick again, because theater is ratings
if he doesn't return there are plenty of other reporter faggots and it doesn't matter

why do media blatantly lie when anyone can view the orgininal source?
Because NPCs don't check the source. They do it because it continues to work.

Typical kike bullshit. I managed to get my friends to acknowledge kikery by showing them some choice clips from the Kavanaugh hearings, primarily when everytime the left tried to concern troll him as hard as they possibly could with flat out lies, it was always a kike.
"Oy vey goy, this is in your very best interest! I want you to be free! You have nothing to be concerned over just pass this to the FBI, they'll protect you!"
