Fox News Accuses Trump of ‘Weaponizing’ Press Passes in Statement Supporting CNN Lawsuit

Published

on

Further proof that the pre-Trump “Democrat vs. Republican” dichotomy was simply an illusion of choice, Fox News tipped its hand by supporting CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump White House for revoking the press credentials of activist, protestor and alleged reporter Jim Acosta.

“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” Jay Wallace, President of Fox News said in a statement according to AP reporter Zeke Miller.

“We intend to find an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court,” the statement continued. “Secret Service passes for Working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”

The “free press” argument is obviously bogus. If Trump is truly assailing the “free press” by revoking Acosta’s credentials, then everyone calling themselves a reporter must be granted White House press credentials. Acosta is a guest in the White House. The First Amendment does not grant him the right to be there.

This is the latest in Fox News, supposedly the alternative to far left cable news (which includes every other news network), siding with Democrats. Last week, they outraged their audience by calling the House of Representative in favor of Democrats before polls even closed on the West Coast on midterm election day.
