Besides, the intern made the first move by reaching in and going for the microphone in Acosta's hand. There was no assault, an accidental brush of someone actively invading your space is not a crime.
Sadly for the Resistance the microphone belongs to the WH making it under the President's control. There is no personal space issue, the intern's job is to retrieve the microphone so it can be handed off to the next reporter. It's a measure of how deep the blind hatred for Trump runs that the WH press corps association is willing to endorse Acosta hogging the microphone depriving other reporters.

Even if we accept Acosta's unlikely claim he didn't touch the intern there is no doubt he took a swipe at her arm. He should be rewarded for missing?

she invaded his space; he gestured 'hold on' invading her space. no assault no accosting anyone. neither has suggested that. there was a tweaked video and you bought that. sad for you and your partisanship fog if you can't understand that right off the bat.

He was told by the legal and current occupant of the White House to stop and then Trump instructed the intern to take the microphone from Acosta. That is akin to saying hand it over. He had no personal space at that point because he was violating his privileges to be there in the first place by his actions. He should have been physically picked up and tossed out onto the street for the way he acted.

No, Acosta failed to pass the microphone like every other reporter at the press conference. Instead like a small child with a favorite toy being told it's time for bed Acosta threw a tantrum and the Resistance faithful concocted some ridiculous excuse "personal space.

Trump answered questions from more than 2 dozen reporters at the press conference but only Acosta chose to act the fool. The President acted with restraint, he could have easily been justified in have Acosta removed by force.

:fy
Acosta was holding the microphone in his right hand. At one point, the intern reached under Acosta's left arm to try to grab the microphone, and he appeared to gently block her with his arm. Here is the moment as broadcast live on NBC:
https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses...23697838137345
A video shared on Twitter by the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, makes Acosta's movement appear more violent.
Here is the video shared by Sanders:
https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses...74680991883265
What appears to be the same video was shared two hours earlier by Paul Joseph Watson, the editor-at-large of Infowars.com, a far-right conspiracy outlet whose content has been barred from almost every major tech content distributor, including Apple, Facebook, Spotify, and YouTube, generally for violating their policies on hate speech.
The CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter asked Sanders for the source of the video. "Surely you don't trust InfoWars...?" he said on Twitter.
Other Twitter users showed Sanders' video side-by-side with the original broadcast to argue the one she posted had been doctored.
The White House suspended Acosta's press credentials after the press conference, limiting his access to the White House grounds. Sanders said on Twitter that the White House would "never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern," though no video evidence has so far supported that claim.
Acosta told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Wednesday that he did not "put my hands on her or touch her as they're alleging."
"It's unfortunate the White House is saying this," he said. "I think I handled myself professionally."
At the press conference, Acosta had been repeatedly challenging the president's characterization of a Central American migrant caravan as an invasion.
The White House Correspondents' Association condemned the suspension of Acosta's credentials, saying the White House should "immediately reverse this weak and misguided action."

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


ummm...
okk.
2 things "strike" me.

1. the fact that alex jones being banned is passed off as a-ok and reason to dismiss his content (whatever it may be).
For better or worse he's part of the news media as well. and the corporate left shut his voice down just as effectively as Trump is trying to do this guy from the right.
Seems to me both sides simply want the other to STFU and be silenced.
One's doing it via Corporations and default control of the media and internet, the other via Government authority. both versions are horrific, and ANTITHETICAL to the ideals of free speech we Americans CLAIM we revere.

2. I'm shocked at what passes as "an assault" by folks these days... and by folks on the right no less
Doctored video or not, neither one shows much more to me than a guy trying to keep his hold on a mic.

when cops push people who are not even breaking the law face first into a car hood or wall or ground and more, it's often not consider "assault". it's just called part of the job... "good" acceptable police work.

This little strike/push/attack by the reporter is a NOTHING burger. I've hit my daughter in the arm harder than that getting her attention to pass the TV remote.
And isn't his job to ask questions? Even and maybe even especially to ask annoying questions. Holding on to the mic generally just means he's trying to do his job in some fashion.
And Unlike in police work, reporters are not obligated to treat people respectfully and as if they are innocent.

I'm still laughing my booty off at the lefty conspiracy theory that the WH doctored the vid.

Then I guess you missed the part where Trump answered sixty-plus questions over 1 hour-27 minutes...
