White House Bars CNN Reporter After Verbal Duel With Trump

"Look, I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice", he added.

One wrote: "Sarah Sanders caught uploading InfoWars doctored video from her official gov account because the White House had an intern attack Jim Acosta to trump up false charges is peak Banana Republicanism - Sue her @CNN".

Trump insisted that the video distributed by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was simply a "close-up" and "was not doctored".

In his weekly column, published to his website Wednesday, before the White House announced action against the reporter, O'Reilly concluded that "the Trump administration would be in the right if it pulled Acosta's credentials".

In response to a question about how long Acosta's press credentials will be suspended, Trump declared, "As far as I'm concerned, I haven't made that decision". Instead, Acosta continued with a second question about the Russian investigation, which Trump shrugged off with another curt answer. If there is one thing that Trump knows well, it's how to get ratings, a fact that CBS Chairman Les Moonves once testified to when he said that "it may not be good for America" but Trump is "damn good" at getting viewers.

Looking back at Acosta, Trump added: "The way you treat [press secretary] Sarah Huckabee is frightful, and the way you treat other people is awful". "You've got to treat the White House and the presidency with respect". She said on the network that the three presidents she covered prior to Trump may not have liked every question she asked, but understood why she did so.

"Pardon me, ma'am", Acosta tells the intern as she reaches for the mic, shifting to keep it out of her hands. A reporter might not like the president, but he or she should always respect the office. "But it could be others also", he said.

Pulling a journalist's White House pass is rare and the misconduct bar is high. "So they use me as an example to show 'this is what can happen to you'". But then he said, "I don't hold him for that because it wasn't overly, you know, horrible".

A number of prominent journalism advocacy groups have come to Acosta's defense and called for an immediate restoration of his press pass. That night, Sander affirmed the decision to bar Acosta, posted a video of the incident, and said "we will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video".

"I mean, she intentionally disseminated doctored video footage to discredit a reputable journalist", Kimmel stated.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told "Fox and Friends" on November 8 "The reporter from NBC was already standing, getting ready to ask his question, and she was just doing her job, which was to reclaim the microphone that belongs to the federal government".

Eventually NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the microphone and defended his fellow reporter, despite him being from a separate network, calling him a "diligent reporter" - which only proved to anger Trump more.

CNN responded with a statement.
