Sarah Sanders on Jim Acosta Ban: ‘We Stand by Our Statement’

WOW! Trump BLOWS UP at Jim Acosta: 'You are a rude, terrible person' Conservatives, Media Figures Clash Over Acosta's Behavior

She said his press pass was being suspended "until further notice".

After the exchange, CNN, through its public relations department's Twitter feed, said Trump's attacks on the press have gone too far. Members of the press should be able to say what they want without a mob targeting their families. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", he said.

The White House Correspondents' Association released a statement Wednesday saying it "strongly objects to the Trump Administration's decision to use U.S. Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a hard relationship". The way you treat Sarah Sanders is disgusting.

"This is a test for all of us", Acosta told Cooper later. And to be totally honest, I don't think that sitting here saying "back and to the left" gets us anywhere.

"The irony of this White House video involving Jim Acosta is that if it is found to be doctored, it will show the administration to be doing what it accuses the news media of doing - engaging in fake information", said Aly Colon, a professor in journalism ethics at Washington & Lee University.

Reporters and historians said it was hard to recall a similar episode.

The site, InfoWars, has been a longtime supporter of Donald Trump's, and Trump has reciprocated the admiration with an interview when he was running for president. Trump was interviewed by Jones in December 2015 when he was still just a candidate in the GOP presidential primaries. After CNN reporter Jim Acosta forcefully blocked a White House intern doing her job of taking away his microphone after a nasty spat with the president, the media have mostly defended him.

In this March 5, 2018 photo, a man removes the word Trump, off a marquee outside the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower in Panama City. Sanders cited this alleged "inappropriate behavior" to suspend Acosta's pass.

NBC, in particular, took some heat for their coverage of the altercation, with many conservatives wondering if Acosta should have put his hands on the staffer as she tried to take the microphone back.

Mr Acosta's press pass was later cancelled amid accusations that he "placed his hands" on the intern.

Bill Gates Promotes New Toilet Technology With Human Waste
Every dollar invested in sanitation yields about $5.50 in global economic returns, according to the World Health Organization. The three-day event took place in China, where President Xi Jinping has made the "toilet revolution" a key priority.

After asking a follow up question, Acosta let go of the mic. "It's ridiculous for anyone to suggest he did".

Nearly immediately, there has been a major backlash for Sanders to resign in the wake of sharing the video, which was created by the widely discredited alt-right site InfoWars.

The Storyful report also says: "The video shared by Sanders appeared under an hour after the same video, with the same close-up, was posted by Infowars.com contributor Paul Joseph Watson".

"I've edited video for 15+ years".

Sanders "provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened", the U.S. cable network said. "This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better", CNN added. "Jim Acosta is always the story".

Sanders did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Dot.

Trump's personal income taxes, which he withheld during the 2016 campaign and in his two years in office, are expected to be the purview of the House Ways and Means Committee.

And CNN has slammed the White House for its actions.

It said the video shared by Sanders "has several frames repeated".
