White House re­vokes re­porter’s press pass

Daily Racing Form National Digital Edition - - News -

The White House took the highly un­usual step of re­vok­ing a re­porter’s press pass af­ter press sec­re­tary Sarah Huck­abee Sanders retweeted doc­tored video of an en­counter be­tween CNN’s Jim Acosta and a White House in­tern dur­ing Pres­i­dent Trump’s press con­fer­ence Wed­nes­day. The in­tern tried to grab a mi­cro­phone from Acosta’s hand sev­eral times, and his wrist briefly brushed with her arm be­fore he im­me­di­ately said, “Par­don me, ma’am.” The doc­tored video omits au­dio of this state­ment and shows Acosta’s arm move­ment sped up.
