Wednesday evening, the White House suspended the press credentials of CNN's Jim Acosta.


White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused Acosta of "placing his hands on a young woman" -- though a Raw Story analysis of the video concluded otherwise.

Acosta was not the first journalist to be banned by Trump, as journalists discussed on Twitter.

"Trip Gabriel of NYT was among earliest to be barred from an event, in Iowa, during caucuses lead-up," noted New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman. "Buzzfeed constantly barred because of a story written in 2013."

Univision news anchor Enrique Acevedo noted they were actually the first news organization banned.

Before the ban was announced, Ramos offered support for Acosta.

Acevedo said people had a decision to make about whether the powerful should be held accountable by journalists.
