CNN's Acosta denied entry to White House following aggressive Trump press-conference

"We urge the White House to immediately reverse this week and misguided action", the WHCA wrote.

Acosta had been holding the microphone, trying to ask a follow-up question, while the president was calling on a different reporter.

As the reporter continued, Trump declared: "That's enough, put down the mic" and walked away from his own podium, as if leaving.

In response, Sanders said the White House ban on Acosta's credentials would stand. Watson's video, posted two hours before, has been seen at least 740,000 times.

How a viewer may perceive the incident in the video may be subject to bias.

US President Donald Trump points to journalist Jim Acosta from CNN during a post-election press conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC on November 7, 2018.

Trump is known to watch a great deal of cable television, especially Fox channels, and to make decisions apparently based on that information. And Acosta has been one of the more visible thorns in the side of the White House. They're hundreds and hundreds of miles away.

"Unfortunately this criminal will have to be dragged lying and obstructing his way out of the White House".

Social media has predictably erupted in a frenzy, while CNN president Jeff Zucker reportedly tried to reassure Acosta's colleagues with a memo that read in part that Trump's "ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far" and "are disturbingly un-American".

Both CNN and Acosta have described the allegation as "a lie".

The incident comes amid an atmosphere of heightened hostility toward the media in the U.S. In late October, CNN was targeted with explosive devices sent through the mail.

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration".

"Had it been a true effort to inform the American public, the president would've announced the removal of his attorney general".

"I understand", Alexander said, attempting to ask a question. "President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history". "This conduct is absolutely unacceptable", she said. He said that "I can do something fantastic, and they make it look not good".

"There is a clear moment (frames 13, 14, 15 in our first clip, where C-SPAN version is on the left) when the Sanders video halts and the C-SPAN footage does not". "We stand by our decision to revoke this individual's hard pass".

The intern attempted to grab the microphone from Acosta, who nevertheless tried to shout out one last question.

InfoWars did not respond to a HuffPost request for comment.

Video of the staff member trying to take the microphone from him quickly appeared online.

Infowars.com is a controversial far-right site described by many as a publisher of conspiracy theories and fake news.

"Just sit down", Trump said. He told the conspiracy theorist, "Your reputation is awesome. I think that you can't be surprised if they're a little crunchy".

Brinkley said that not even President Richard Nixon, who famously mistrusted the news media, tried to pull credentials from reporters.

The adjustment is "too precise to be an accident", said Shapiro, who trains instructors to use video editing software. "It starts feeling like a banana republic", he said.
