The guy takes three times as many questions as Obama during his first press conference after the midterms and salty calls it "avoiding most questions"...

If anyone wants to know or even understand why Trump won in 2016, this is a perfect example. Most politicians in this case would have tried to be polite to a reporter acting like a petulant 5 yr old, continuing to try to talk over other reporters after having his question answered.

However, instead of allowing this to happen and placating to the scumbag Acosta, Trump shut him down and instructed the aid to take the microphone from him. Then after Acosta kept up the shenanigans, Trump lambasted him in front of the press corp and the world, putting Acosta in his place.

This was Trump's press conference, not Acosta's. For some reason, Acosta believes he is above everyone else and can play by his own rules. Having WH press credentials are handed out with the expectation that their access is not abused. Acosta violated that expectation and has paid the price by loosing his access.

Trump is handling the media the way that most of middle America appreciates. He is not allowing the media to run roughshod over him and it giving it back to them in spades. And when they publish their dishonest trash that they call news, Trump is calling them out on it.

As I stated in another thread, the First Amendment protects the media so that the media can inform the public as to the actions of our government. But when the media becomes a propaganda wing for one party and works to undercut the opposing party, not for the good of the country but for the advancement of one party's agenda, they ARE an enemy of the people in that they violate the trust that the First Amendment seeks to protect.

The press has become an arm of the corrupt Deep State, and Jim Acosta is a good example of it.

AFAIK there is no first amendment right to access to any public official. That would include the press. The official makes the rules.

Subject to a few restrictions, Jimmie can write whatever he wants. He can stand in the streets yelling and screaming. Even go on social media. Yelling and screaming will get you gone.

Some people need to be reminded that the First Amendment does not make it mandatory for a person to stand still and listen to the babblings of a jackass.

He didn't yell or scream at the president. Trump just cannot handle tough questions. The 1st Amendment doesn't include an asterisk for when the president is triggered.

Oh and the WH releasing a doctored video to push a lie about Acosta assaulting that woman, that was beyond reprehensible.

Exhibit A...
Lying through your teeth or avoiding most questions is not "accessible".
yes he changes subjects, humiliates the press or goes on a me, me, me tirade, or just outright lies.
that is not accessibility. It is trump reality tv.

Again, Wally, there is no right to access. To refresh your memory:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Jimmie can take his rants to the streets, CNN, or sing it to his bathroom mirror.

If that's doctored video, I wish somebody would post the full uncut version. The video I saw, Acosta was making statements, not asking questions. Trump was answering questions. More than any other President typically does.
