READ The White House’s ‘New Rules’ For Press Conferences In The Age of Jim Acosta

Published

on

The White House has issued New Rules that all journalists must obey when partaking in the time-honored tradition of the daily White House press conference. These rules apply to pressers led by both President Donald Trump and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who received Secret Service detail as Maxine Waters called for liberals to invade Trump administration officials’ personal spaces in real life.

Jim Acosta is clearly the delinquent here, having been banned from the White House and re-instated for 14 days after winning a lawsuit. It appears now that Acosta is back permanently, according to real-time news reports. But Acosta has to follow the rules this time around. (READ: O’Reilly Criticizes Fox News Management For Supporting Acosta).

The White House rules state:

  1. “A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists;”
  2. “At the discretion of the President or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up has been allowed and asked, the questioner will yield the floor;”
  3. “‘Yielding the floor’ includes, when applicable, physically surrendering the microphone to White House staff for use by the next questioner;”
  4. “Failure to abide by any of these rules (1)-(3) may result in suspension or revocation of the journalist’s hard pass.”

Josh Hawley RIPS World Health Organization Director After ‘Body Bags’ Threat

Tedros Adhanon claimed targeting the WHO would lead to more deaths.

Published

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley slammed World Health Organization director Tedros Adhanon in a Wednesday tweet, after the latter threatened that American sanction or defunding of the WHO in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus epidemic would lead to “many more body bags.”

President Trump had announced that the United States would be cutting its annual contributions to the WHO during Tuesday’s press briefing, pointing out the UN-affiliated entity’s long track record of pro-Chinese distortion, inaccurate medical advice, and political agitation against the United States and the travel bans instituted on China.

If Adhanon didn’t want the World Health Organization to be identified as a political actor, he shouldn’t have openly condemned the notion of common sense travel bans on China as countries across the world implemented them.

Adhanon resorted to dramatic threats when Trump’s intention to cut WHO funding was announced, stating that the United States would incur many more “body bags” if it “politicized” the coronavirus epidemic. Adhanon has consistently resorted to political rhetoric since the onset of the pandemic.

Hawley’s not the first Senator to repudiate Adhanon in the wake of the WHO’s lackadaisical coronavirus response. Arizona’s Martha McSally called for the Ethiopian bureaucrat to resign from his post, citing Adhanon’s long track record of affiliating with Marxist-Leninist political parties.

President Trump went on to blast the WHO’s dubious and ineffective response to the coronavirus disease at Wednesday’s press conference.

The United States has been the greatest individual contributor to the budget of the World Health Organization for years, regularly paying hundreds of millions of dollars into the WHO’s multi-billion annual budget.
