Fox News files amicus brief on behalf of CNN’s Acosta — and calls out ‘antagonistic’ Trump

Published

on

Fox News on Wednesday announced that it would be filing an amicus brief on behalf of CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who recently had his White House press pass rescinded by the Trump administration.

“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” the network announced. “Secret Service passes for White House journalists should never be weaponized.”

The network then called out the “antagonistic tone by both the president and the media” during recent press conferences, while reiterating that it supports “a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”

The White House stripped Acosta of his press pass after a testy exchange with the president. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also drew criticism for promoting a doctored video that made it look like Acosta had been physically aggressive with a White House intern.

We can’t say with any certainty that Iran wasn’t behind the attacks on two ships in the Gulf of Oman this week, but it is clear that the Trump regime’s account of what happened unraveled very quickly. Shortly after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a video of a small vessel removing something Pompeo said was a mine from the damaged port side of one of the ships, the vessel's owner said that it had actually been struck on its starboard side, above the waterline, by a flying object. If this were in fact an effort to pull a Gulf of Tonkin, then the fact that this was the best dog-wagging they could conjure up would be downright pathetic.

Here is how ABC gave a helping hand to Donald Trump in his bid to be re-elected

Published

on

On Friday morning, some affiliates in ABC News’ digital division posted an article promoting an online “birthday card” for President Donald Trump — who turned 73. The “card” turned out to be linked to a petition website created by Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC). And those ABC affiliates, according to the Daily Beast, helped Trump and the RNC add to their e-mail lists.

“Happy Birthday, Mr. President!,” the content read. “To help him celebrate, the GOP has made him a digital birthday card.”
