Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 08, 2018

"The revocation of Mr. Acosta's White House press pass, especially on fabricated grounds, is an absolute blow to freedom of the press," said Margaux Ewen, Director of RSF's North America bureau. "This severe measure, paired with the president's treatment of several other esteemed White House reporters, is unacceptable given the already hostile environment for reporters in the United States. President Trump has continued to refer to journalists as the 'enemy of the people' and fails to treat them or their profession with respect. Now he appears to be retaliating against a reporter for asking tough questions of his administration by denying him access. The White House must cease its continuous assault on the First Amendment."

Who needs reporters when Fox News tells me everything I already "know".

But Acosta placed his hands on the White House intern, according to Sarah Huckster.

Then he knocked the intern to the ground, kicked her in the ribs and snatched the mic out of her hands. Then he followed her home and blew up her house, killing her entire family, before taking the intern's neighbors hostage and demanding Trump's head on a platter.

Oh, you have video showing that none of that happened? Okay, never mind.

Andrea Mitchell reports that trump's WH Briefing confrontation with ace reporter Jim Acosta was planned by trump a distraction from the news of the day; "Dems flip the House". Quoting trump aides who laughed with each other, prior to the briefing, "This is going to be fun."

No surprise, Gal. This administration never stops with the deceit and propaganda.

Acosta viciously roundhouse kicked the intern into unconsciousness.

Acosta is the liberal media's equivalent of Michael Avenatti. Talks a lot, makes a lot of accusations, gets discredited, gets beaten down.

#3 And of course even that is overshadowed by the mass murder republicans support.

You should easily identify how Acosta and Avenatti have been discredited, then.

I know! What an annoying little libby spies from the enemy! Throw them out!

I am very disappointed that Humpy didn't body slam him as an example for the OTHERS.

BTW-Avenatti and Acosta have NOTHING in common except their disgust and disdain for corrupt politicians.

No. You don't.

Acosta is a reporter, not a source.
Avenetti is rarely on CNN, especially as a source.

Why lie?

Avenatti was on CNN 82 times in 3 months.

Could easily be following your example. If he also runs away, we'll know for sure.

I'm really not a big fan of Acosta. He does like to showboat. That said, Trump is doing what he always does, pumping up his base as a distraction from the negative news, which in this case is his firing of Sessions so he can regain control of the investigation against him.
