White House Threatens To Ban CNN’s Jim Acosta If He Asks Trump About Gillibrand Tweet (He Asks Anyway)

The Washington Examiner reports:

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta claimed White House press secretary Sarah Sanders threatened to curtail his media access if he shouted a question at President Trump. Acosta ignored the alleged warning, using a “pool spray” Tuesday at the White House to ask Trump about a tweet he sent out earlier in the day about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

Acosta’s question to the president was related to a tweeted Trump sent out earlier in the day, accusing Gillibrand, who has called for his resignation, of “begging” him for political donations. He added a parenthetical to the tweet that said Gillibrand “would do anything for” the donations.

    • Mark McGovern

      I dunno I’m not on this CNN bashing band wagon. Yes they gave a forum to Trump’s spokespeople, but isn’t that what they are supposed to do? If they interview only those who do not support Trump and his administration, how are they any better than Fox, who very seldom has credible opposing voices. Isn’t that what news is supposed to do, provide both or as many sides of the story as is reasonable?

      • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

        Actually, you’re thinking of entertainment. News is supposed to report facts and nothing else. Opinions are not facts.

        • Mark McGovern

          Facts as determined by whom?

          • Frank McCormick

            Who are you? Pontius Pilate?

          • Mark McGovern

            LOL that’s rich. I have an opinion, and prefer to hear dissenting opinions rather than stick my head in the sand, and that makes me Pontius Pilate? You may prefer to hear only from those who you agree with, but you will learn nothing about your adversary that way. That’s how we got into this fucking mess in the first place, by not listening and not paying attention.

          • Christopher Smith

            LOL. You’re a laugh riot! We got into this fucking mess because of MORONS like you saying ‘both sides do it,’ ‘there is no difference between Rethugs and Democrats,’ ‘Clinton is as bad as dRUMPf,’ etc, ad nauseam. You also cannot even spell ‘Pontius Pilate,’ much less comprehend the truth of that appellation for yourself (though it is, of course, far too charitable in your case.) There is no ‘objectivity’ in the Rethugs’ abolition of the Fairness Doctrine, the creation of Faux Noise as a reactionary propaganda tool and nothing more, or the ownership of the majority of our media by toads like Rupert Murdoch. According to your imbecilic trope about ‘news’ never being factual or objective, the FACT that casualty counts change means that all other matters which do not change (dRUMPf’s and the Rethugs’ lies on every subject, voter suppression as practiced just today in Alabama, Charlieboy Koch’s absolutely sociopathic determination to destroy this country, and so forth) are equally mutable and may be put into the same category. This is beyond bad logic and well into collaboration with fascism. You ARE our adversary, and you bear part of the responsibility for this abattoir. OWN IT. EAT IT.

          • Mark McGovern

            With each word you type you reveal yourself to be more LIKE the President you despise than not.

            And seriously, I am your adversary because I have a different opinion on reporting news??? Just to put that statement into perspective, after your President was elected, I (who am not an American btw – I already enjoy full and equal rights in Canada) drove 2700 km to DC in June to participate in the anti-Trump LGBT march in support of YOUR rights. While I don’t want or expect anything for it, part of what I and my husband marched for was the right to be heard, and the right not to be silenced by the power of ignorance.

            So if you think I am likely to be silenced by the incoherent rant you just penned about me, you are sadly mistaken. And if you think you are going to win over any of the votes we need in 2018 and 2020 by calling people names, you are again sadly mistaken. That strategy clearly is not working for POTUS, and will not work for us, in my opinion.

          • dempseyzdad

            “Facts” by definition are indisputable. No one can “determine” a fact. A truth is a truth and nothing changes that.

          • Mark McGovern

            But news is not a process of someone regurgitating known facts. News is the process of establishing the facts, or at least trying to. A reporter may, in 2014, have reported a fact that 400,000 civilians died in Iraq during the war. Additional research, reporting and fact finding could amend that number repeatedly over the ensuing decade. News is often people on the ground, experiencing the circumstances, and reporting on what they see, hear, and feel.

            To the point of this discussion, news is supposed to be factual, and objective. News is not served by hearing from one side only. There is no objectivity in that.

          • JD

            Your essential point stands, to me anyway, but what has been lost s the understanding that objectivity does not mean giving equal voice to every opinion, or that coverage is presented in a bubble in which context does not apply. Amending facts based on evidence is valid. Presenting opposing views as “fact” when one is “strongly held belief” is aiding and abetting the view not supported by the preponderance of available evidence.

          • Mark McGovern

            I agree with you. For example, on issues of climate change, there should be a panel of 9 climate scientists who agree it is man made to 1 panelist who disagrees on that point.

            That said, I get my news from CNN, CBC, BBC, CTV and whatever other links that articles on this site lead me to, including NYT, New Yorker, USA Today and various LGBT websites. I do follow CNN somewhat consistently, and would say they definitely already lean left. In my opinion, if they leaned further left than they do; as far left as some here want them to, they would in my opinion compromise their ability to be a credible news site, which is where FOX is. Personally, I want to know what Kellyanne Conway is saying, and I think it is important for intelligent capable interviewers like Cuomo to confront her. Otherwise, she says what she wants, and that’s the end of it.

            But if you are saying that CNN presents opposing views as fact (one way or the other), I disagree with you. I don’t see that. They moderate their panels’ discussions; some better than others. There are times I cringe when they let one side or the other get away with preposterous statements, but I think that will happen. Cuomo rarely lets that happen.

            Anyway that’s my 2 cents worth for which, you might note, I have been called “Pontius Pilot” here haha. I’m actually sitting here laughing at that as I read it. The irony is, the accusation has at least a mildly Trumpian flavor, except that Trump wouldn’t even know who the fuck Pontius Pilot was.

          • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

            Wrong. News is a report of known information. If i report that a plane went down today and crashed into the White House and it didn’t, that is easily determined by examining facts. Can it be seen for example. There is no “as determined by whom”. Either anyone who goes to that location at that moment can see it, or it did not occur.

          • erik grohe

            But people don’t care about that. They want to hear pundits opine on the topics of the day and forget the straight forward, objective reporting. I used to work at a local news outlet and all the viewers cared about were those stupid “news you can use” segments.

          • Mark McGovern

            Well if that is the case then, tell how many civilians were killed in the Iraq war? As you will see, if you search, there are varying reports. Some will try to minimize the death count in order to whitewash the reality, while some will maximize in order to stir the pot. Are you saying the death count in the Iraq war is either not news, or not news until somehow the factual count of deaths is certified? It will be many years before the facts are known, if ever. Thus, it is inevitable there will be opinion and research based variances which may not be factual, but are still relevant news.

        • Duh-David

          Remember when the news used to have some expert on to explain some complex idea — some senior professor from an Ivy League institution who had written several books on the subject? Now we get some fresh-from-homeschool, political mouthpiece with no expertise on the subject interpreting things for us.

          That’s a problem with modern entertainment news: We don’t need a counterpoint weatherperson to tell us it isn’t going to snow, after the first meteorologist shows us a wave of snow bearing down on us from the west. The fact is the front is there on radar, I can choose to hope it brings no snow to my street, but that doesn’t change the fact as reported, that there is a front of snow.

        • erik grohe

          There is NO news station now that delivers objective facts. None. Fox, MSNBC and CNN all have pundits that deliver opinions. That’s all people care about. I used to work in local news in L.A. and even a normal local newscast was filled w/ bias. The days of objective news are long gone. Viewers have demonstrated that they don’t simple, objective reporting and news organizations are doing what viewers want to get ratings.

      • Christopher Smith

        Did you manage to miss the entirety of dRUMPf’s 2016 campaign? The Hillary-bashing and dRUMPfsucking from CNN was beyond atrocity. Try those for FACTS, Pontius PiLATE.

        • erik grohe

          Really? I never saw that (not to the extent you are saying). I have always said that Fox is too far to the right, MSNBC is too far to the left and CNN is right in the middle. I think they are usually right on point. If you don’t like CNN. try watching Fox for a while and see what you think….

          • Christopher Smith

            Sorry. Faux Noise is all lies all the time, not ‘too far right.’ Well documented. MSNBC is barely even progressive, particularly with the thugs they have recently hired in the interests of ‘bothsidesism,’ and CNN was wildly biased against Clinton.

        • Mark McGovern

          Time to grow up now. We already have a name caller in the White House. People are allowed to have a different opinion than you. If your best response is to call someone names, that generally means you have zero relevant input to offer, as your post clearly indicates.

          • Christopher Smith

            Time to rent some brain cells now. You of course have no answer to my unanswerable FACTS. You are allowed to have different opinions; you are not allowed to have different FACTS. If your best response is nothing but pathetic attempted condescension, that generally means you don’t have shit–as all of your posts make abundantly obvious. Your insane ‘bothsidesism’ in the face of overt racism, fascism, homophobia, kakistocracy, and the attempt permanently to subvert our democracy into a fascist oligarchy is nothing short of pathological. Your juvenile attempts at paternal, avuncular ‘wisdom’ are utterly vomitous. Of course, you’re merely a visiting Whitebarf troll who is a shred more presentable than the usual manifestation–and, as such, I’m delighted to block you and stop wasting valuable time refuting you.

      • J Ascher

        CNN could have countered Trump and his surrogates’ outlandish claims and shown more pro-Democratic stories.

        • Mark McGovern

          It’s tempting for me to simply just agree with you.

          But really, what if I did, what would we be saying? We want CNN to be an extension of the Democratic Party and FOX to be the GOP, and every other news outlet line up behind their favorite?

          Honestly, I just can’t see how that benefits the fractured and polarized American democracy. We all should be getting our news from a variety of sources. We cannot expect CNN to elevate the Democratic Party. That is the job of the party leadership, not the press.

          • J Ascher

            No, I’m saying CNN could have been far more balanced in its coverage of the 2016 campaign. CNN definitely shouldn’t be a mouthpiece for the Democrats nor should any network be for any party.

          • Mark McGovern

            I just didn’t see the lack of balance you (and others) reference, and I did follow closely; but not exclusively CNN. I follow a number of news sources. You may well have seen more than me.

    • barryearle

      I’m never sure what that means? Are you inferring that there wasn’t enough info out there during the campaign about Trump–his lies, his bad business dealings, his predatory behavior, his nearly criminal frauds, his reneging on payments to people who worked for him, etc?

      The reason he is in the White House has nothing to do with the media’s reporting. If anything, they helped elect him with his base because of ALL the coverage they gave his every tweet and outrageous statement which is exactly what Acosta was doing today. Trump is great at getting and keeping the media and the public’s attention. Hence, “she would do anything.”

      The media will be talking about this for the next several news cycles. And his press secretary will be obfuscating it which will only cause more media attention to it as the Republicans are, meanwhile, meeting behind close doors to finalize a tax bill that will screw most of us and probably sink the economy down the road. But no one will be paying much attention to that. A $1.5 trillion addition to the deficit? But let’s talk about “she would do anything” instead. It’s how Trump works. And he’s brilliant at it.

      He won because Clinton, for all hers and her husband’s political experience, forgot the Electoral College Game. She won the popular vote which means 3 million votes got the word about Trump probably through the media. However, he won the Game. So shame on the Clinton campaign for dropping the ball.

      Now, onto Roy Moore.

      • Reality.Bites

        I just placed an online order from a site in BC. Pay by Interac transfer, delivered by Canada Post Express Post one or two business days later.

        The west seems to be moving towards a free market solution to weed retailing, while central and eastern Canada are moving to strict government control.

        Thing is though, weed is light as air (almost). It makes cigarettes seem like lead. Booze is bulky and heavy. They can set up all the inter-provincial trade barriers they want, but BC is going to dominate the market and, I believe, force Ontario and Quebec to start treating weed like they treat alcohol.

        • AmeriCanadian

          What do you believe the Ontario government will call their new cannabis outlets? Mary Jane’s? 😉 I hope it’s catchier than “The Beer Store”.

            I remember being in Toronto in 1991 and seeing “The Beer Store” and “The Liquor Store” as two separate entities. I don’t know when “The Liquor Store” changed to LCBO but moving here in 2005 I would not have known what it was had I not seen descriptors on the awnings. I would have expected “The Beer Store” to have changed names too. I did not know it was once “Brewers Retail”

            Also, I’m familiar with ONRoute but I don’t remember what it was called prior. I only remember stopping for food and noticing that the ketchup was sweeter than what I was used to at my then home.

            Thanks for the explanation on the need for bilingual names. I did not know that but it makes sense now that I see it.

          • Reality.Bites

            I think the old name was “place rural gays go for blowjobs” and it was just too hard to come up with a snappy translation. 😉

            LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) has always been the name, but wasn’t always the brand.

  • Again I say it: the press corps just needs to NOT SHOW UP at these briefings. JUST ONCE.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      That or wait until the vapid cow lumbers into the room, starts to talk and then they all get up and leave. Now THAT would be a sight to see.

      • EVEN BETTER.

      • Chucktech

        Unfortunately, I believe she’d be just fine with that.

        • Jonathan Smith

          I’ve been wishing for that for 11 months.

    • William

      And then there will never be another briefing, the press banned from the White House entirely.

      • Treant

        Acceptable! Sarah stands there and does nothing but lie anyway.

        • William

          That isn’t good in a supposed democracy. If nothing else, Sarah is recorded when she tells lies to the media.

          • Treant

            We’ll always have her press releases.

        • Gianni

          It might be worth it to stop attending. They don’t get anything worthwhile from her anyway. From what I can tell, we get all the real news from the sieve that is the West Wing of the WH. There is so much leakage there that every news network has plenty to report. Only FUX News doesn’t need the leaks, They have their own really easy script prepared – What about Hillary and how she did this, and this, and that, and the other thing?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    I don’t know if hate her more than Kelly Ann, but I do know, it’s not less.

    • AJ Drew

      Wanna know why most folks who believe in being moral and just are not in politics, or especially do not have a job that requires ‘splaining others?

      I’d rather be poor.

    • teeveedub

      Once one reaches the saturation point of hatred (as I have with the two aforementioned mouthpieces of tyranny), there’s no where left to go.

    • Gianni

      That’s a tough one but I have to go with Kellyanne. She’s a couple of degrees more grating to me.

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    Trump minions: Al Franken accusations: must resign!!!, Trump accusations… we need to keep the conversation civil.

  • William

    Every reporter should ask the same question.

    • Gianni

      THAT would be worth watching! I’d even bear with Miss Twat getting irritated to see that.

      • William

        Sarah would stomp out by the fourth time.

        • Gianni

          That too would be doubly worth seeing. 🙂

  • Do Something Nice

    Because in a world two seconds from nuclear war, this is important.

  • Cuberly Deux

    So we’re now threatening reporters for doing their jobs. The norms are gone so how is this even a surprise?

    Sorta irked that I totally missed the innuendo in Donnie’s tweet at Gillebrand. But then I tend to be innuendo blind most of the time. Some people just need it spelled out. (bows head in shame)

    • William

      You need remedial education immediately.

    • Treant

      Every day in spring, I am in the garden. And I would like to plow you, too.

      • Cuberly Deux

        Oh my…..I’ve heard that’s a great cure for migraines. 😉

        • Treant

          Sometimes, it is. 🙂

      • Gianni

        That doesn’t qualify as innuendo.

        • Treant

          So when I say, “Let’s fuck,” I’m not being subtle?

    • ColdCountry

      How can anyone who has been around here more than a week be innuendo blind? Not everyone can be a Todd – he raises seeing innuendo to an art form – but really? (Though it is rather refreshing.) 😉

      • Cuberly Deux

        It happens. I know, it’s weird.

  • TominDC

    Why does Huckabee always look like she’s trying to decide whether she had just farted, or sharted?

    • Mikey

      maybe because that’s what she’s thinking?

    • Vinnie NYC

      Oh, and I thought that was her gut sounding like a growling dog behind the gate

  • William
    • 2patricius2

      I wish a whole string of reporters would ask this question of the Drumpf in his face. But barring that, I wish they would ask that same question of Sarah Huckster.

  • Steverino

    Funny how the “First Amendment Restoration” crowd seems to forget that freedom of the press is also a First Amendment right that would be covered under that proposed Act. It’s not just about religion.

    • Jonathan Smith

      no. it’s “freedom” of the press, provided you do NOT ask a question he has to answer.

  • Friday

    More fascism in the name of a creep and asshole.

  • bkmn

    What delicate snowflakes.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    ….

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Wolf’s literal response: “Yeah, I noticed.”

  • dogdadny

    Trump just sexually harassed Sen Gillibrand. Lock him up! Throw away the key. I’d ask Twitter to ban him but he’s hanging himself with his tweets.

  • JackFknTwist

    I should hope he f ucking asked anyway !

  • Daveed_WOW
  • JackFknTwist

    I have little respect for the American press after their failure under the W. Bush years to raise questions about the legal advice of those two a ssholes, Yoo and Bybee, who gave their ‘legal’ opinions approving ‘ extraordinary rendition’ to black sites and their approval of torture and the suspension of habeus corpus for Guantanamo internees. What a disgraceful pair – yet the US Press gave everything in those years a free pass. It was all 9-11, no one could be disloyal.
    Well how about doing your job ?

  • Tempus Fuggit
    • Reality.Bites

      Well what other kind of shit would they expect her to spew?

      • MDixon34

        Frankly I find human shit far more disgusting than horse shit.

      • Tempus Fuggit

        Cow.

    Um, why does anyone want to see a bill signed? OK, why would MOST people want to see a bill signed?

    Having asked that, I’ll confess to an interest in the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act — the first act that Obama signed into law. I had taken a class in Employment Discrimination law and we’d read the Court’s decision against her — a mean, unnecessary decision.

    Otherwise, what the hell?

    BUT since the primary source of Fake News is trump and his spox, I’d like to see the White House correspondents boycott the press briefings. Just for a day. To start.

    If there’s no human energy in the room, what’s she going to live off?

  • Gianni

    When Donnie signs something at those signing ceremonies of his, he then holds up the document and proudly displays his accomplishment. Is anyone able to make out his name in that ungodly scrawl? I sure can’t. I presume it’s supposed to be “Donald John Trump” but it looks more like a very exaggerated electrocardiogram tracing. He shows it off like a kid proudly showing mommy how he colored within the lines. What a dick!

    • William

      It’s the kind of script favored in Nazi Germany.

  • iambu

    That’s not a great lip color on her…

  • kaydenpat

    Fascism.
