Jim Acosta Is Getting His White House Credentials Back
Donald Trump's battle with the free press keeps getting nastier. The 45th president recently revoked the press pass of prominent CNN reporter Jim Acosta. Acosta has been known to engage in heated exchanges with the president and various White House representatives at press proceedings. Most recently, he was the subject of major controversy when a White House intern tried to take a microphone out of his hands after he repeatedly questioned the president about the immigrant "caravan." Subsequent to his revocation, pundits from the left and right have been arguing over the legality of removing a journalist for exercising his first amendment rights. But a federal judge ruled on Friday that the White House must restore the press credentials for Acosta.
