CNN Lawsuit Against White House Contains Multiple Mistakes, Stupid Reference To Meme
Well, it is CNN so of course, they have fake news in their lawsuits… But the details of their lawsuit don’t really matter because all they want is to be able to say that President Trump was sued for denying their “Freedom of the Press” rights.
CNN news is riddled with errors and factual omissions as are their allegations. This lawsuit is absolutely absurd. There is no constitutional right to a press pass. Give me a break.

CNN has filed a lawsuit against the White House for stripping the hard pass from CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta after he rudely refused to hand over his mic and physically blocked an intern from taking it. But CNN’s legal team appears to have rushed its big lawsuit, which contains some glaring errors and curious references.
The feud over Acosta’s indefinitely revoked hard pass revolves around his behavior at a November 7 press conference last week in which he, as White House Press Sec. Sarah Sanders put it, “plac[ed]his hands” on a female White House intern whom he had repeatedly refused to allow to take the microphone despite having already asked multiple questions and the president telling him in no uncertain terms that his time was up.
“President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration,” Sec. Sanders wrote in a series of tweets announcing the removal of Acosta’s pass. “We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history.” More
Anyone with a working set of eyeballs can look at this video and see that it was Jim Acosta getting physical with the young intern, and not the other way around.
