CNN v Trump Might Be Settled, But The Fight Is Just Beginning

2018-12-05 00:28:221 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

The revocation of CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s “hard pass,” by the White House for asking hard questions of the President went to court and CNN resoundingly won. However, according to Politico all is not well. The government continues to claim broad authority to deny reporters access to the White House for asking tough questions. Making matters worse, the White House continues to adhere to a dangerous position: that the decision to revoke a hard pass doesn’t raise any constitutional issues because there’s no First Amendment right of access to the White House Politico states that this month’s judicial decision was the start of a long overdue conversation about the way that Trump has threatened our deepest constitutional values, and that we should not be fooled by the fact that just because Acosta has his hard pass back that things are settled.
