Trump insults reporters, claims Acosta video wasn't altered

"He's a very unprofessional guy", Trump said.

Twitter has veteran journalist April Ryan's back after President Trump called her "a loser" and threatened to revoke her press credential, as he did with CNN's Jim Acosta. "The question is: Did the reporter make contact or not?" she asked reporters a day after the White House revoked Acosta's press credentials for his alleged transgression.

The statement is a notable gesture from Medill, a respected stalwart in the journalism industry that sends many of its graduates to national publications, including CNN.

In another infamous case, Acosta told White House official Stephen Miller that preference shouldn't be given to immigrants who know English, even though that's already a requirement for naturalization. The beginning of the clip has extra frames that would be indicative of an adjustment to slow the clip down, and then the actual moment of the incident is sped up to make Acosta's actions look more aggressive than they actually were.

Trump's combative relationship with the media in general, and CNN in particular, has been a fixture of his time in federal politics, fuelling support from a grassroots, blue-collar base that cheers his descriptions of unfriendly reporters as "enemies of the people" and their work as "fake news".

President Donald Trump speaks to the media on the South Lawn of the White House, on Friday, November 9, 2018.

"Denying press passes as a method of retaliation is a violation of the First Amendment".

On Wednesday, Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign. "This is a very special place", Trump said.

Co-host Sunny Hostin added, "I've always said the media is under attack".

"But when a president repeatedly declares that information provided by news organizations is not to be trusted and that government pronouncements are the only trustworthy source of information, that's crossing a red line".

"I guess the White House is being accused of altering or doctoring the video or something like that", Watters claimed.

"Mr. Trump is not likely to temper his rhetoric", it concludes. Not only was Acosta's behavior toward the young intern objectionable, but, similarly, his constant mistreatment of the President and his Press Secretary is completely unacceptable. She doesn't know what the hell she's doing. In the 1970s, President Nixon tried to get Washington Post reporters banned from the White House.

CNN's other White House reporters and producers have been unaffected by the action against Acosta. The worldwide Committee to Protect Journalists did the same and called on the administration to restore his credentials.

He went on saying that the bad blood between him and the media was the fault of journalists showing insufficient deference. More than 333,000 people have signed the petition.

Acosta's attempts haven't come without criticism and that particular incident earned him a derisive critique from White House advisor Kellyanne Conway.

Ryan admitted that no one is flawless and that sometimes the media gets it wrong, but sometimes, "we are great".

"It's a bad look for working beat reporters to abandon their reporting role and jump into the arena", he said. "The worst thing a journalist can do is take that bait and enter into combat".

While leaving the White House on Friday for a trip to France, the president said other journalists might be in jeopardy of losing their credentials. CNN said Sanders' explanation a lie.

In previous administrations, real journalists explored the truth from an objective viewpoint, with no political agenda.

On several occasions Trump could be seen shushing, interrupting the reporter.
