Liberals accuse Fox News of being state run media.
They claim it’s in the tank for Donald Trump.
But what Fox News just did to Donald Trump will leave you speechless.
CNN sued the Trump administration after it yanked White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.”
This pass allowed Acosta free run of the White House.
He can still apply for a visitor pass and report as he pleases and CNN still has 50 individuals with hard passes.
But CNN seems to think Jim Acosta himself has a Constitutional right to report from inside the White House.
So they sued.
And out of nowhere Fox News joined their lawsuit.
Fox News is supporting CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump administration over the White House’s revocation of Jim Acosta’s press pass and plans to file an amicus brief in the case, according to a statement from the network’s president Jay Wallace.
“FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone 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.”
Fox News joined with the opposition party media even though CNN’s so-called media reporters spend all day attacking the network and trying to get its primetime hosts kicked off the air.
Conservatives were stunned.
Acosta put his hands on a White House intern and disrupted a press conference. No media outlet would defend a Fox reporter if they behaved this way when Obama was President.
Does this move signal Fox under its new leadership may be moving left?
