Home law Federal Judge Rules CNN Was Right, White House “Must Reinstate” Press Pass...

A federal judge has ruled that the White House must let CNN’s Jim Acosta have his press pass back.

The White House had suspended Acosta’s press pass after an altercation in which a White House intern had grabbed a mic out of Acosta’s hand  during a press conference. The White House claimed– erroneously– that Acosta had put his hands on the woman consequently. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders even offered a doctored video of the incident.

CNN sued the White House over the matter. Thirteen or more news organizations, including Fox News, filed briefs in support of CNN and Acosta.
