FOX Execs Turn on Trump, Stand with Jim Acosta

FOX News announced its support for CNN’s anti-Trump lawsuit, Wednesday.
The right-leaning network is turning on the Trump administration to try
to force the White House to return Jim Acosta’s press pass.

Fox reports:

        Fox News announced on Wednesday that it supports CNN’s efforts
        to restore Jim Acosta’s White House credential after the network
        filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration.
        “Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White
        House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus
        brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for
        working White House journalists should never be weaponized.
        While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the
        president and the press at recent media avails, we do support a
        free press, access and open exchanges for the American people,”
        Fox News President Jay Wallace said in a statement.
        CNN filed the federal lawsuit against the Trump administration
        on Tuesday demanding that the White House restore the press
        credential of star reporter Jim Acosta. The administration
        suspended Acosta’s “hard pass,” which provided expedited access
        to the White House grounds, after he broke protocol by refusing
        to surrender his microphone during a press conference last week.
        Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a scathing statement,
        calling the move “more grandstanding from CNN” and pointing out
        that the network has other reporters who are still allowed to
        enter the White House.

FOX has faced criticism from the Left for their close association with
the Trump administration. But maybe not so much after Wednesday.

        I disagree with the position that Fox News has taken in this
        matter. Jim Acosta was entirely out of order with his actions &
        does not deserve to attend White House Press Conferences. What
        he did was not an act of free speech, it was arrogant &

                Not only that, FOX News has lost nothing as they have
                other reporters they can send in his place. They just
                want to make news, not report it !!

                I would do one of two things if I were in the White
                Houses shoes.
                1. I would give asscostsus his press but simply never
                call on him again
                2. I would tell all the other so-called journalists that
                we were going to answer all of asscostsus’s questions
                and if we had time for them ok and if not tough $hit.

        This is just more evidence that the press, once a source of
        information and news, is now more interested in MAKING the news
        than reporting it. Sad.
                November 15, 2018 at 1:38 pm 
                These press stories have been leaning more to plain EGO
                sustained in their self serving moves over anything
                else. EGO ruins. Evidently those of us smart enough to
                know that simple life fact aren’t able to speak our
                voices in numbers great enough to sway thoughts of
                consideration when it comes to things like this. It’s
                exactly the same for Democrats. They really believe
                their way of thinking should not be questioned. This is
                a sign of mental illness. That’s true. But unless
                Americans grow some spine and literally and physically
                fight with fist and voice (again, literally) then this
                country is toast. Some feelnit already is I guess and
                let their wimpy minds take over and cower under their
                roofs. Speak out. Do something!

                In the quest to become one of the Biggest Liars of Fake
                News, Fox is now complicit in supporting Acosta’s
                assault on a reporter. In his increasingly frantic
                efforts to reveal Trump as an unfit Charleton who
                somehow fooled a nation of people into voting for him.
                Acosta has descended into the little man/big man mode
                and now brags on a pedestal provided by Fake News CNN.
                In his quest for international glory, Acosta’s antics
                have increased from irritating and supercilious to
                self-aggrandizing, disrespectful, and assault.
                While his contemporaries look on and applaud Acosta’s
                faux bravery, a threat level of major proportion
                There is not another country in the world that would
                tolerate this behavior from a “guest” or the sponsors
                who encourage it. Acosta should never be allowed to
                report anything other than garbage pick-up. CNN’s should
                be banned for encouraging him in his dangerous behavior!
                If Acosta is the best face of American journalism, our
                nation has been shamed, mocked and caught with their
                pants down!

                Money moves the business world. This is especially the
                reality of the television news industry as advertising
                dollars fund everything. The influence of the wealthy
                and ultra wealthy global socialist, the New World Order,
                twenty-first century mavens of control everything is
                massive and corrupt. George Soros, Tom Styer and other
                elitist socialist ilk the likes of Bill Gates, Michael
                Bloomberg, Bill & Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, et al
                wield global influence with their wealth. It is all
                aimed at securing the lone bastion of independence and
                personal freedoms, the United States to fall in line and
                march to the global orders the rest of the world has
                acquiesced to. So the already liberal leaning off
                springs of Rupert Murdoch didn’t need much coaxing to
                begin slowly but surely appeasing to the influences of
                extreme wealth from the aforementioned elitist groups
                and the advertising dollars they control or heavily
                influence. The Juan Williams, Geraldo Rivera, Jessica
                Tarnov, Sheppard Smith, Chris Wallace, and an ever
                growing list of Fox News regulars are socialist pawns
                and have done their best to attack Trump and his immense
                base at every turn, truth and facts mean nothing to
                them. Farewell Fox News.

        If CNN would send a real investigative REPORTER instead of an
        interrupting EDITORIALIST I am sure they would have a seat at
        the table. Otherwise, shut-up and take your medicine.

        FOX News should side with the President! A reporter asking
        questions is one thing –
        but arguing with the President is NOT gathering news. Jim Acosta
        should not have access if
        he cannot control himself! He’s worse than Sam Donaldson was –
        and I was
        surprised that Sam kept his pass!

                        generation called a little attitude adjustment.
                        Some of those adjustments left the egoist

        Well I think you are doing the wrong thing to Trump,that news
        person was a jerk,acted like a little kid that did not get his
        way,did not your babies acted in the same way,but the babies
        just cry all the time,what a joke on how low people will go and
        kiss someone’s ass.
        November 15, 2018 at 12:45 pm 
        As much as admire the Fox News guys I have to part with their
        management on this one. Acosta behaved like an ass and should
        have has his placard pulled. CNN is bad enough but this twit
        takes the cake and the White House was correct having his
        credentials yanked at the gate! Acosta has gotten away with too
        much disrespectful behavior…enough is enough. Fox should shut

        Fox was the only source of Media we trusted enough to watch. Now
        they have destroyed our trust so I guess we’ll have to leave
        them too. While we do not watch the shows of their liberal
        pundits that love Obama and all things Democrat, like Shepherd
        Smith, Neil Cavuto, Chris Wallace and others that just hate
        President Trump, we do watch a few of the programs that just
        give us the news facts, leaving it up to each individual to
        decide what we think of the information. Hope the Fox Owners
        enjoy watching FNC fall into the whirlpool of other news
        agencies swirling down the drain into the cesspool.

                and friends, Lou Dobbs and Maria Bartaroma. I’m viewing
                more of OAN, One America Networ. They have more actual
                news coverage at home and overseas. I give FOX another
                year before they Become no better then MSNBC.
        November 15, 2018 at 1:02 pm 
        If CNN wants to be represented at White House media events, then
        they can send another reporter. There is nothing in the 1st
        amendment saying that some person cannot be reprimanded because
        of bad behavior.

        on things will not be changed. 
        Jim Acosta was definitely wrong as is the whole Left Wing Media.
        Takes courage to stand up for what is right. Seems like Fox News
        is just another Tabloid Magazine and I don’t have time for junk
        like that.

        Fox News supports CNN lawsuit. And in other less than
        interesting news; Mr. Ed, the talking horse, is still dead!
        CNN’s Acosta is a whiny bytch, suffers from ‘little man’ issues,
        and has a huge case of ‘TDS’, Trump Derangement Syndrome, as
        does that whole failing network!

        i watch fox news 24-7. i am so disappointed in
        Fox News. president Trump is doing a great
        job making things happen with no support
        from the press. it’s sad for our Country.
        President Trump is the best President in my
        lifetime and I’m old. Shame on Fox!
        November 15, 2018 at 1:25 pm 
        Jim Acosta is rude, ill mannered, pushy, smug, not smart and
        should not be allowed in the bathroom of the White House. Would
        you invite someone to your home as described ?
        He is trying to get attention and is sanctioned by the worst
        network in America. CNN hates everything America stands for and
        also should be continually snubbed. They smell !

        Why is it necessary to hold White House News conferences, when a
        press release would suffice. I say dump the whole dog-and-poney
        show aspect and concentrate on the people’s business. A periodic
        on camera statement, with NO Reporters, present would be enough.
        Between Rush, Hannity, Bill Oreilly and other heavy hitters why
        not develop a Super Network, with actual news and limited
        talking head shows. I’d would love to know what Congress is
        doing… and probably THEY would like to know what THEY were

                November 15, 2018 at 3:14 pm 
                I wholeheartedly agree…stop the briefings! There are
                very few real reporters, like in the past. I simply want
                to hear plain, truthful news. Leave their opinions at
                home. The more criticism of President Trump, the less I
                listen to them! Acosta is a low self-esteemed fathead.
                And none of the other attendees have the courage to
                stand up against him.
        November 15, 2018 at 1:38 pm 
        If Acosta is allowed to go where ever and say what ever he
        pleases, then why does Fox ban many of their contributors who
        don’t toe their line? Sounds like bias to me. Pick and choose
        just smells to high heaven.

        November 15, 2018 at 1:50 pm 
        Did you expect anything less – there has always been a part of
        me (little voice) saying beware of those that throw their
        support that buy ink by the gallons – they are showing that
        depending on the situation their ability to be objective and
        just stick to the news can change. If you were watching the
        Acosta questioning it becomes evident that it was an attack and
        nothing more – his body language, tone and line of questioning
        was clearly an aggressive attack which in my opinion was more of
        a look at me The lady that was attempting to remove the
        microphone was doing as directed and Acosta did act aggressively
        toward her – in my opinion Acosta was so caught up in “look at
        me” that he probably didn’t realize that he did, in fact,
        aggressively chop, and in my view, push the lady’s hand away.
        This is not acceptable there or anywhere else – there comes a
        point when a person is so caught up in what they are doing they
        do not realize what they are doing “they are just doing their
        thing” and as Pelosi says “people become collateral damage” in
        this case the intern.
        This is not the first time for Acosta to continue a badgering
        and hostile style of questioning. So he has a history –
        especially toward President Trump and his staff – of aggressive
        behavior and mean spirited tone. In my opinion his actions,
        especially on the day of the news briefing?, were unacceptable
        and he deserved to have his credentials removed. Also, to have
        news (?) corporation(s) coming forward and attempting legal
        action is just stupid “as a lot hollywood stars and numerous
        other people call women and us deplorables”. Acosta – you earned
        what you received – be a big boy and admit you screwed up and
        move on!!!!

        Acosta disrespected the President. Kept asking questions not
        allowing the President to call on others. I saw it all. So, now
        Fox has joined the other networks in bashing our President.
        Would not give the Mike to the WH staffer. I have no respect for
        him. I guess I will quit watching Fox now and hope some other
        network will report the news as it really is!!!

                November 15, 2018 at 3:34 pm 
                Martina, you are a real reporter. Very few have reported
                on Acosta’s total disrespect for our President. TOTAL
                DISRESPECT!!! President Trump needed to say “that’s
                enough” too many times. Acosta kept talking. PRESIDENT
                TRUMP was elected to be OUR CHIEF, not acosta.

        Acosta is a rude and ignorant person, who does not deserve to be

        shame on you!

        I can’t believe the only news I watch is standing behind CNN’s
        Acosta. He’s a biased whatever he is, I won’t call him a
        journalist, trouble maker is the more appropriate word for him.
        He’s an antagonizer and he doesn’t belong in the White House
        causing a raucus everyday. Now I’m beginning to wonder if Fox
        can stand behind left wing liberal cable news channels, what
        does that really say about them. No wonder you hold on to
        Sheppard Smith and Juan Williams the other two liberals that
        continuously have something derogatory to say about the
        president everyday. The hell with Fox Nation, won’t be watching
        that one, will decide about about watching you at all.

        This rises almost to the level of a traitoris action on the part
        of Fox.
        This is where I have gone to get the (mostly) unbiased reporting
        of the news. Seems, no longer.To me, this issue is plain and
        simple…. respect for the office of the presidency and
        procedures. Acosta is ,and has been , a hired attack dog for
        President is simply not a passive person and Acosta and CNN
        should be ashamed of their anti Trump agenda and shame on fox
        for not standing up for the president.

        Doesnt make any difference what network he may represent, his
        behavior was out of line. Keep him out. CNN has other reporters

        Acosta does not DESERVE his press pass to be returned!!! His bad
        behavior is what caused him to loose the pass. They should NOT
        reward bad behavior!

                AGREE!!! Acosta is a bad role model.
                DOWN WITH FOX!!!
                DOWN WITH CNN!!!

        NO, Acosta should not be allowed to rejoin the press
        conferences. He has proven he is nothing more than a
        disrespectful individual merely trying to stir BS and in
        esscense promote himself. Ryan should be added to the list of
        banned individuals. (Notice I didn’t use the term ‘journalist’
        as neither of them are.). Acosta proved his intention of taking
        over the last conference he was at by shoving the arm of the
        intern trying to take the mic. He is a paid bully by the left
        and sent there just to be disruptive and cause chaos.

        YES! He is a paid bully! End the briefings…end this
        self-inflated meathead who has absolutely nothing to say.
