Fox News fans are not happy that their favorite network is filing an amicus brief on behalf of CNN’s Jim Acosta, who had his White House press pass revoked by the Trump administration last week.
“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” Fox News President Jay Wallace said on Tuesday. “Secret Service passes for White House journalists should never be weaponized.”
After Fox News media critic Howard Kurtz tweeted out Wallace’s announcement that his network would be supporting Acosta’s challenge to his press pass getting revoked, he was met with heavy criticism from several of his followers, who saw Fox’s decision to show solidarity with CNN as a clear betrayal of President Donald Trump.
