    When the government's agents (like the Prez) propose to stop a citizen from working in their chosen job, that's a deprivation of liberty and property that triggers a "due process of law" set of rights.

    But, I think if the right process is followed and Trump can justfy bannng him from the W H press corps for being disruptive and hogging the limited Q&A time, Acosta could and should be reassigned due to Trump's order.

    Even public officers should not have to continue to host and accommodate rude dix that harass thise gov't officers using special press credentials and by attending invitation-only events.

    If Acosta wants to protest against Trump, let him do it the way you or I would... by waving a cardboard sign on the sidewalk just on the other side of the black security fence.

    Let him show up and sit there wanting and waiting in futility to be called on to ask a question. Refuse to let him speak. Perhaps CNN will see how worthless the idiot is and replace him.

    I'd let him talk - the whole time. Let the other reporters get on him.

    Well CNN has only won a reprieve - the order is temporary while the case proceeds. No final decision yet.

    Acosta isn't being deprived of his livelihood. He's being denied the privilege of covering the White House. It's not a right open to any and all reporters. CNN can assign him to anything they want him to cover - except the White House. What right of life, liberty or property was Acosta denied due process from? None.

    Acosta got a short-lived reprieve to go ply his obnoxiousness. He isn't going to change his spots so he's already guaranteed his removal from the White House press corps.

    Another jumped up ambulance chaser that seems to have forgotten anything they read in the US Constitution.

    That's a rather spurious assumption concerning Acosta's reading habits, no?

    Acosta should have been charged with battery and frogmarched out of the press room. Banned for life from the White house. You don't touch the interns.

    Bill Clinton did! So it must be acceptable for Democrats and their supporters to.

    What's weird is the White House Correspondents Association vets the 'journalists' and maintains the master list of 49. By tradition. Which should be scrapped for something more fair to smaller / distant from DC journalists.

    Luckily I don't have to watch "The Phew." Let someone else deal with that crap. :puke:

    Uhhhhh, let me see. :-k Oh, yeah. ALL of them. There's no Constitutional right, 1st Amendment right or any other right that requires the White House to allow any member of the press free and unfettered access to the White House. Nixon was kind enough in 1969 to pave over FDR's swimming pool into a nice, cushy work space for the press. The White House isn't even required, Constitutionally or otherwise, to give any press briefings if it doesn't want to. It's all a privilege. People, especially stupid ones, just don't understand how things work in real life.
