White House Press, You Only Think You Won … Trump Tells Fox’s Chris Wallace Conduct ‘Rules’ Coming for Press
NOTE TO WHITE HOUSE PRESS, YOU CAN BLAME CNN’S ACOSTA FOR ALL THE RULES THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO FOLLOW IN THE FUTURE …
The main stream media only thinks they have won, when on Friday a judge ruled that CNN reporter, Jim Acosta, press access be reinstated. Smile and smirk now Acosta et al, but you actual just lost. If the media bothered to report on the story, including the shills at establish Republican FOX News, you will have noted that the judge stated that this was not a First Amendment issue, it was supposedly a 5th Amendment of due process. What does that mean? Well, know that President Trump will be handing down rules of decorum of how the media will conduct themselves in the White House during press conferences, if they disobey the rules, they will be thrown out of the room and have their press credential revoked. The MSM has been put on notice. You will now be subject to a strict criteria of rules of conduct during press conferences, and if you do not behave you will be thrown out or they will end altogether.
So MSM, how do you think you won again?
President Trump seems to be already working on a plan to regulate press briefings, hours after a judge ruled an ousted CNN reporter’s press access be reinstated.
In an interview with Chris Wallace for Fox News Sunday, Trump brushed off Judge Timothy Kelly’s Friday ruling that CNN’s Jim Acosta have his Secret Service pass to the White House grounds be reinstated. Despite the ruling being a interim rejection of The White House argument that the president has “broad” discretion in which credentialed members of the press are allowed access to attend official briefings, Trump said, “It’s not a big deal,” and that his team is already working on “rules” for reporter conduct.
“We’re doing that, we’re going to write them up right now,” Trump told Wallace. “It’s not a big deal and if he misbehaves we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”
Pushing for specifics, Wallace asked if certain things are going to be considered “over the line” and Trump reiterated that these new rules are being written now, but that they will cover “decorum” and outline that reporters “can’t keep asking questions.”
In other words MSM, in the end, you lost. You can thank CNN’s Jim Acosta, his boorish behavior and his grand standing for your new set of specific rules that will govern your behavior. Gone will be the days of you getting follow up questions and a dialogue back and forth with Sarah Sanders. You will sit, raise your hands, ask one question, sit back down and shut the hell up. You have brought this upon yourselves. President Trump was asked about the judge’s ruling, he stated, “It’s not a big deal. And if he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”
