Video Contradicts CNN and NY Times Claims About Acosta Incident

U.S. President Donald Trump gets into a heated exchange with CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta as NBC correspondent Peter Alexander looks on during a post-election press conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington DC on Nove

Acosta had challenged the president on his characterization of the migrant caravan moving through Mexico as an "invasion". A White House intern tried to step in and take the mic from Acosta, but when he held onto it, she backed away.

"I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", he said.

It's been another bad day for CNN, though Trump's favorite "fake news" network to mock, and its notoriously grandstanding reporter, don't appear to have figured that out just yet.

"The irony of this White House video involving Jim Acosta is that if it is found to be doctored, it will show the administration to be doing what it accuses the news media of doing - engaging in fake information", said Aly Colon, a professor in journalism ethics at Washington & Lee University.

Sanders confirmed Acosta's claim and the White House Correspondents' Association - of which Fox News is a member - quickly released its own statement condemning the decision to revoke Acosta's credential.

The president had been talking to other reporters and really railing against them. When he tried to follow up with another question, Trump said, "That's enough!" and a female White House aide unsuccessfully tried to grab the microphone from him. "This conduct is absolutely unacceptable". "He was disrespectful to his colleagues in asking repeated questions and thereby making it harder for them to get in a question, and then the President of the United States told him to sit down and he refused, and he kept talking".

When NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the mic for the next question, he defended Mr Acosta as a "diligent reporter" - earning Mr Trump's ire.

Trump faces restraints as Dems seize House
Joe Donnelly in IN and Republican Marsha Blackburn's win in Tennessee made it much more hard for Democrats to make inroads. The average of the top ten polls still shows Democrats with a +7.3 point lead in the last 24 hours before the polls close.

"I'm not a big fan of yours, either", Trump replied. "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behaviour clearly documented in this video", Sanders said, posting a video of the CNN reporter allegedly placing his hand on a young woman.

The revocation of Acosta's "hard pass" which provides access to the White House grounds is without any precedent in modern history.

"I do think they are trying to shut us down, to some extent, inside the White House press corps". "We stand by our statement".

An activist interrupted President Obama at a White House event celebrating L.G.B.T. Pride Month to demand an end to the deportation of L.G.B.T. immigrants.

Acosta is CNN's chief White House correspondent. "Jim Acosta has certainly does that and this is a moments that not just all reporters but all Americans should be really concerned about and stand together against".

On Thursday, she wrote: "The question is: Did the reporter make contact or not?"

Faux Donald Trump and alleged parking spot-puncher Alec Baldwin said, "Trump attacks Acosta bc he needs someone, anyone, to be worse than him".
