    Acosta's defenders urged people to look at video of the interaction, saying it proves Sanders was incorrect that the journalist 'placed his hands' on a female intern. A still of the video is seen above

    The video shows the intern reaching for the mic, as Acosta's left hand appears to push her left arm down as he grips the mic

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is seen at the press conference on Wednesday afternoon. She issued a statement later in the day saying Jim Acosta's press pass had been suspended until further notice

    Jim did you believe you were in the MMA Octagon when you used a move to push her left arm down as she reached for the mic.

    The intern did not formally complain or try to destroy Jim.

    Unlike Joy Villa who tried to destroy Corey Lewandowski

    Please post a singular example of this happening from 2009-2016.

    It should be on Youtube so you can do that and show everyone how smart you are.

    Thanks in advance.

    Im not sure Republicans see it as good thing - they despise the media and the country is doing great so they could care less about soft cunts like Jimmy Acosta

    More lies and deceit out of this White House....

    Expert: Acosta video distributed by White House was doctored


    BC-US--Trump-Media,5th Ld-Writethru
    Nov 08, 2018 8:57PM (GMT 02:57) - 881 words
    By DAVID BAUDER and CALVIN WOODWARD , Associated Press
    Eds: Links video. With AP Photos. AP Video.


    NEW YORK (AP) — A video distributed by the Trump administration to support its argument for banning CNN reporter Jim Acosta from the White House appears to have been doctored to make Acosta look more aggressive than he was during an exchange with a White House intern, an independent expert said Thursday.
    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted the video, which shows Acosta asking President Donald Trump a question on Wednesday as the intern tries to take his microphone away. But a frame-by-frame comparison with an Associated Press video of the same incident shows that the one tweeted by Sanders appears to have been altered to speed up Acosta's arm movement as he touches the intern's arm, according to Abba Shapiro, an independent video producer who examined the footage at AP's request.
    Earlier, Shapiro noticed that frames in the tweeted video were frozen to slow down the action, allowing it to run the same length as the AP one.
    The alteration is "too precise to be an accident," said Shapiro, who trains instructors to use video editing software.
    The tweeted video also does not have any audio, which Shapiro said would make it easier to alter. It's also unlikely the differences could be explained by technical glitches or by video compression — a reduction in a video's size to enable it to play more smoothly on some sites — because the slowing of the video and the acceleration that followed are "too precise to be an accident.
    Sanders, who hasn't said where the tweeted video came from, noted that it clearly shows Acosta made contact with the intern. In her statement announcing Acosta's suspension, she said the White House won't tolerate "a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job."
    While the origin of the manipulated video is unclear, its distribution marked a new low for an administration that has been criticized for its willingness to mislead.
    The White House News Photographers Association decried the sharing of the footage.
    "As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth," said Whitney Shefte, the association's president. "It's deceptive, dangerous and unethical. Knowingly sharing manipulated images is equally problematic, particularly when the person sharing them is a representative of our country's highest office with vast influence over public opinion."
    CNN has labeled Sanders' characterization of Acosta's exchange with the intern as a lie. Its position has been supported by witnesses including Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason, who was next to Acosta during the news conference and tweeted that he did not see Acosta place his hands on the White House employee. Rather, he said he saw him holding on to the microphone as she reached for it.
    "The irony of this White House video involving Jim Acosta is that if it is found to be doctored, it will show the administration to be doing what it accuses the news media of doing — engaging in fake information," said Aly Colon, a professor in journalism ethics at Washington & Lee University.
    Several journalists and organizations — including the American Society of News Editors, the Associated Press Media Editors and the Online News Association — demanded Acosta's press pass be reinstated.
    "It is the essential function of a free press in every democracy to independently gather and report information in the public interest, a right that is enshrined in the First Amendment," said Julie Pace, AP's Washington bureau chief. "We strongly reject the idea that any administration would block a journalist's access to the White House."
    The New York Times editorialized in favor of restoring Acosta's pass, saying it signaled Trump's view that asking hard questions disqualifies reporters from attending briefings. The newspaper said that if Sanders was so offended by physical contact, "what did she have to say when her boss praised as 'my kind of guy' Rep. Greg Gianforte of Montana, who was sentenced to anger management classes and community service for body-slamming a Guardian reporter last spring?"
    CNN has been a frequent target of the president, who has characterized journalists as enemies of the people and who routinely accuses the mainstream media of spreading "fake news." And Acosta has been one of the more visible thorns in the side of the White House. During their verbal altercation on Wednesday, Trump called Acosta a "terrible person."
    Still, it's rare for the White House to pull the so-called hard passes from journalists.
    During Lyndon Johnson's presidency, the Secret Service denied clearance to Robert Sherrill, a reporter for The Nation who had gotten into physical fights with government officials. During the George W. Bush presidency, Trude Feldman, who worked for various news outlets, was suspended for 90 days after security cameras recorded her looking through a press aide's desk late one night. In the 1970s, President Nixon tried to get Washington Post reporters banned from the White House.
    Despite losing his White House pass, Acosta is expected to travel to Paris this weekend to cover Trump's trip to meet with world leaders.

    I watched the whole conference live on CNN.

    That was not doctored it was live.

    Acosta clearly delivered a karate chop to the poor girls arm.

    The conduct of a handful of so-called reporters during President Trumpís news conference was disgraceful beyond measure. This is not journalism, this is narcissism.

    Naturally, the boorish Jim Acosta of CNN was the instigator. As is his habit, Acosta doesn’t ask questions — he makes accusations and argues. Almost daily, he does it with the press secretary; Wednesday, he did it with the president.


    “I want to challenge you,” Acosta began after Trump called on him. Trump realized he’d made a mistake, murmuring, “Here we go,” and Acosta didn’t disappoint.


    He insisted that despite the president’s use of the word “invasion,” the caravan of Central American migrants “is not an invasion.”

    You can post all the crap you want but simple fact is that trump unraveled and showed how weak and on tilt he is. You guys really think past Presidents haven't been hounded by the media and purposely provoked?

    Weak. Weak minded silly old orangutan. Lol. He's going tilt already. He's unraveling and so are his supporters....That's why you're trying so hard beets.

    Recall how Obama used to spend 10, 15 and even 20 minutes answering a single question — without interruption.

    But they would never interrupt him or insult him or refuse to give up the microphone.

    Trump seems to amuse you. That's good because he'll be doing it for the next 6 years.

    Just think of how pleasant your life will be.
