White House bans CNN reporter Jim Acosta after Trump row

John Legend slams Trump during President's wild press conference

Acosta held on to the microphone and kept trying to question Trump.

Mr Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, said he was informed by Secret Service officers that he could not enter for his scheduled 8pm broadcast. After taking criticism for the gross mischaracterization of events, Sanders proceeded to tweet a video of the event as evidence of Acosta's "inappropriate behaviour".

"We stand by our decision to revoke this individual's hard pass".

Sanders did not disclose where she obtained the video.

"You manipulated this video". And since Acosta was denied entry back onto the White House grounds, many of his fellow journalists, media organizations and First Amendment advocacy groups have condemned his suspension and voiced their support for Acosta. Acosta pushed the woman's arm down as she tried to take the microphone away from him while he was haranguing the president.

Its report claims the video has several frames repeated.

Acosta responded by calling Sanders' statement a "lie".

What appears to be the same video was shared two hours earlier by Paul Joseph Watson, the editor-at-large of Infowars.com, a far-right conspiracy outlet whose content has been barred from nearly every major tech content distributor, including Apple, Facebook, Spotify, and YouTube, generally for violating their policies on hate speech.

It remains to be seen in the coming days if it will live up to the hype it has created and if it will do well at the box office. According to Yash Raj Films , the first-day box office figures of the film are estimated to be over Rs 50 crore.

Infowars.com is a controversial far-right site described by many as a publisher of conspiracy theories and fake news.

Fox News has not yet confirmed whether or not the video is actually doctored, or simply zooms in on the incident. "This video analysis by BuzzFeed News demonstrates what the GIF conversion process does to video". You are a rude bad person. It shows Acosta harshly tugging away the microphone. "Secret Service just informed me I can not enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit".

Sanders said Thursday the White House stood by its decision: "The question is: did the reporter make contact or not?" "Revoking access to the White House complex is a reaction out of line to the purported offense and is unacceptable".

During the 90-minute news conference, Trump snapped at Acosta after he asked why the president had called the Central American migrant caravan "an invasion" and "demonized immigrants".

"I do think, Anderson, that this is a test for all of us", he said.

CNN called the credential revocation an "unprecedented" move and "a threat to our democracy".

She continued, saying that reporters are "not supposed to be the story" and adding that she was "frustrated" watching the interaction between Acosta and Trump.
