CNN Files Lawsuit Against White House Over Jim Acosta's Press Credentials

CNN has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration for suspending Jim Acosta's press credentials, alleging the move violates the First Amendment. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders responded by saying Acosta's "attempts to monopolize the floor" cost him his pass, after initially saying it was because he pushed an intern, a claim that was widely debunked. Experts are divided over who has the stronger case: some say it was a clear violation of free speech, arguing that Trump retaliated against Acosta over the content of his questions, while others contend it was Acosta's behavior that cost him his pass and that CNN has other reporters who can cover the White House.
