Fox News Sides With CNN in Lawsuit Against Trump Administration

Washington Post chief executive Fred Ryan said: "We supportCNN in its effort to restore the press credentials of its White House reporter".
Tompkins and McBride noted how Acosta's manner of confronting Trump contained the accusation that the president was demonizing the migrant caravan that's heading towards America's southern border.
"It's not an invasion", Acosta insisted. The lawsuit asserts that this ban is really about Trump's dislike of Acosta. "I consider it an invasion".
"He doesn't even know what he's asking you half the time", he added.
Free speech activists have warned the case has important implications, and that public officials should not be able to bar access to journalists if they dislike news coverage.
Videos of the encounter show Acosta pulling back as the intern moved to take the microphone. He then pointed to Acosta and pointedly said, again, "that's enough - put down the mic".
CNN asked for a temporary restraining order, warning that Acosta's credential suspension could set a precedent for future attacks on other outlets. "You shouldn't be working for CNN". Trump interrupted, saying he wasn't anxious because the whole Russian Federation business was "a hoax". "You shouldn't treat people like that". Trump repeatedly told him to sit down, but he didn't listen to him, which ultimately led him to be accused of manhandling the intern. Fox News was one of the organizations part of the filing. "Imagine anybody doing this to Obama".
Sanders called his behavior "absolutely unacceptable".
The White House Correspondents' Association - of which Fox News is a member - issued a statement in support of CNN's decision to take legal action.
"The president is generally free to open the White House doors to political allies, in the hopes of furthering a particular agenda, and he is equally free to invite in only political foes, in the hopes of convincing them of his position", the lawyers said in the filing.
In the past, there have been occasional flare-ups between the White House and the press corps over the qualifications of individual applicants for White House passes.
Theodore Boutrous, a lawyer for CNN and Acosta, said the White House was punishing Acosta for the contents of his reporting.

But Acosta was not the only reporter to ask multiple questions at the press conference and the event was only the latest escalation between Trump and the media.
The president himself suggested that it was not only Acosta, with whom he's sparred frequently, or his frequent target CNN, but that "it could be others" who face the same retaliation. "You are a rude, bad person" and when "you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".
"Anything that's good for ratings is good with Trump", he said. But I haven't read them, the lawsuit. Media outlets jealously guard their prerogatives - and White House access is the lifeblood of their business. "The White House can not get away with this", he said in an interview with CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin.
