Tuesday morning, CNN filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking alleged reporter Jim Acosta’s White House press credentials, but fails to address the stated reason why Acosta’s credentials were yanked.
“When Acosta attempted to ask a follow-up question, President Trump refused totake it. A White House staffer then approached Acosta and attempted to grab the microphone.The staffer reached all the way across Acosta’s body, successfully latched onto the microphone, and physically attempted to remove it from Acosta’s right hand. Acosta held onto the microphone, stated “Pardon me, ma’am,” and continued to ask his question,” the court filing said.
Of course, that is not a full or fair representation of the events that transpired. Acosta placed his hands on a female White House intern in an attempt to physically stop her from taking the microphone, as directed by Trump.
“We stand by our decision to revoke this individual’s hard pass. We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video,” said Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, attaching a video of the incident.

Leftists attempted to protect Acosta by claiming that the video was “manipulated,” which was disputed by forensic experts. The inappropriate behavior to which Sanders was referring is obviously, at least in part, based on the fact that Acosta placed his hands on White House staffer.
The lawsuit claims that Acosta did not put his hands on the staffer.
“Defendants initially claimed that they revoked Acosta’s press pass because he’plac[ed] his hands’ on an intern,” it said. “That contention is not accurate.”
“The President himself has stated that the Acosta’s conduct was not ‘overly horrible’ and that Acosta’s credentials were actually suspended because he failed to “treat the White House with respect,'” the suit continues.
The official cause of action stated in the lawsuit is a violation of the First Amendment.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins
Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.
Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.
Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.
Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.
Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.
It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.
Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
