This deserves more upvotes. The word "assault" may be too much, but the left has used it for far less. Jim Acosta is a jerk (in general and to fellow reporters) and has been getting out of hand over the past almost 2 years. His banning is more of a personal punishment for being disrespectful to everyone in the room and not at all an "attack on free press".

Anyone who thinks that was an assault is clearly delusional.

I think you misjudge me. I am not an npc and I would be defending Tucker Carlson if this happened with Obama as president. Maybe some other people defending Jim, but not me.

How about you watch the unaltered footage before making false allegations.

Believe women? I don't think the women claimed that she had been assaulted. I've watched both the doctored and unaltered footage and neither show an assault claiming otherwise is insulting to women who have actually been assaulted.

Falsely accusing someone of assault is wrong irrespective of their politics. If roles where reversed my opinion wouldn't change.

You and I have very different definitions of assault.

Also, why the hell would you put hashtags in a meme?

We do; I'm using the legal one for D.C. FYI: Assault of a federal employee on federal grounds can carry a penalty of up to 8 years prison time. According to the law no contact is needed for charges to be filed. He stopped a government employee from doing their job.

I live in DC. You are grossly misinterpreting our laws. He did not show any intent to harm her. He did not show any intent to frighten her. He did not touch her sexually without her consent.

Simple assault requires one of those things.

Nah, if he was from Saudi Arabia he'd be charging HER with assault for daring to touch a man with her bare hands.

oppression of the free press? only one journalist was banned, it wasn't even his network. cnn can send some other asshole to speak out of turn and refuse to shut up, just not acosta any more. I don't think you understand what free press means

If the president throws a hissy fit and revokes press passes every time he doesn't like the questions...

then he still isn't infringing on free press. they can go home and write all the nasty articles they want without fear of being shut down or censored. Free press does not mean all-access

Kicking one reporter out of the WH is a signal to others that some questions are off limits. That is censorship. Also, violation of the constitution.

"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."

please tell me where in there it says that anyone must answer their questions?
No, that isn't censorship. That is refusing to answer a question. As I said, freedom of the press doesn't mean they get to go anywhere they want or that people must answer them. If the president doesn't care to give them an answer, freedom of the press does NOT compel him to. censorship is when a government censor is sitting in the CNN offices telling them what they can and cannot write. That DOESN'T happen and the only time I'm aware of that it DID happen was under a democratic president in WW2. You seem to be confusing the concept of free press with "I should be able to do anything I want wherever I want because I have a press pass". What you seem to be wanting is more like an inquisition than a press corps. Do you feel the same about people not answering questions from the press when some asshat reporter gets in the grieving mothers' face and asks her how she feels about the murder of her son?

from https://ncac.org/resource/what-is-censorship
"Censorship happens whenever some people succeed in imposing their political or moral values on others by suppressing words, images, or ideas that they find offensive."

from houstonchronicle.com
"Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., called it “an offense against the First Amendment interests of all of us.”" (The White House took retaliatory action against Kaitlan Collins)
"The courts have refused to recognize an overarching “constitutional right of access” to government information."
"...journalists do have a right not to be retaliated against, regardless of what form the retaliation takes."

from pen.org
"WHITE HOUSE’S WITHDRAWAL OF JIM ACOSTA’S PRESS CREDENTIALS FURTHER EVIDENCE OF REPRISALS THAT VIOLATE THE FIRST AMENDMENT" (their caps, not mine)
"The First Amendment protects our press from having to operate under the cloud of such intimidation and threatened reprisal. Our lawsuit is an effort to affirm that fundamental principle, and ensure that no one—not even the President of the United States—is given free rein to violate the Constitution."

My thinking is based from clear explanations such as these here. Your descriptions are exaggerated and hyperbolic. I have not seen a claim that the president must answer a specific question or pivot for that matter. So, saying : 'never mind that, next question' appears to be acceptable.

And when the president tries to move on to the next question 3 times and the reporter refuses to stop..? You've defeated your own argument.

Maybe not assault, but definitely rude and inappropriate. He deserves to have his White House privileges revoked.

I agree, but Trump was definitely being very rude as well, hardly presidential. Jim Acosta was asking questions negative to Trump, but Trump, like any other president, could have reacted in a better manner instead of insulting a reporter who is asking questions shared by many.

He tried that in case you didn't actually bother watching the video.. it was after Acosta interrupted him about 4 times that he finally started being outright rude to him

I bothered to watch the video :-| Trump making fun of him and CNN calling his real reporting make news and dissing CNNs ratings. It is the reporters place to ask hard questions and interrupt. Im sorry to tell you I hold our President to much higher standards than a reporter.
reply

It is a reporter's place to ask hard questions, it has NEVER been their job to interrupt or be rude. If you cannot be civil towards the president while inside the White House of all places, you shouldn't be there to begin with. Not only does his posturing make our country look like a joke, it makes it impossible for any of the other news agencies to ask THEIR hard questions. Acosta is a narcissistic asshole who thinks he is more important than every other reporter in that room. Might be on par with the president himself, tbh.
