    I mean, I think the main weakness in CNN's First Amendment case is partly what I said earlier. Not only does the White House as an institution barter access for good coverage, it has long had the ability to exclude outlets from briefings that it does not deem credible, that engage in hate speech, etc. On the flip side, I don't think that has ever extended to individual reporters from outlets that are otherwise given access as credible. While I'm sure the President would want the Justice Dept. to argue that CNN is "fake news" and thus not credible, I doubt that would have legs. Then they would have to explain why they target just one reporter.

    In any case, I think a judge will rule on it at about 3 PM. So we may actually hear something based on the arguments.
    See post right above this

    BTW, there is NOTHING in the Constitution (or ANYWHERE else) that says the Admin HAS to give press briefings in the first place.

    Cute on "militia" BS.
    Sorry this came in as I was writing.

    Of course it's BS because, you're caught.

    He can't get the info from his cronies! They're biased! The only way to hear verbatim is to be right in front of Trump when he lies.

    If he loses his case, maybe you guys have an argument, but Jim Acosta has not been silenced in the public square, just in the White House, which can take another CNN reporter in his place. It's not like CNN is denied access entirely.

    Do you honestly believe if he wouldn't be all but unilaterally condemned for it, not to mention sued (or even impeached), that he wouldn't bar CNN yesterday if given the opportunity? He hates them to his core.

    That doesn't answer my question.

    Do you believe, if he could avoid the consequences, he wouldn't ban the network entirely?

    "Miltia" to defend against a tyrannical govt does NOT equate to any of the armed forces branches. Exactly why the founders put it in.

    So you admit it! Acosta's cronies (April Ryan, Jeff Zeleny, Athena Jones and Sara Murray. Jeremy Diamond, Stephen Collinson, Kate Bennett ) ARE BIASED!! And as full of shit as CNN. But they are still in front of Trump so again. No 1A violation.

    And what grounds would the impeachment be based on? Show me the law that says the Admin MUST hold press briefings. And the law that says who should be included.

    Yeah, I actually read more than one news source, so really, I'm good. Appreciate your patronization, though.

    DO you have a gun? Are you in the militia? When do you drill?

    He can just read this thread, see who's saying what, and get a pretty good sense.

    if he could avoid the consequences? sure. but that's like with anyone else. im sure Obama would've love to shut down FOX news if he could when he was prez., or Clinton the whole republican party. does not change the fact that they cant.
