    FOX News Backs CNN’s Lawsuit Against Trump Administration GTSA

    FOX News Backs CNN’s Lawsuit Against Trump Administration $

    FOX News announced Wednesday that it would back rival CNN's lawsuit against the Trump administration.

    FOX News President Jay Wallace said in a statement that the network intends to file an amicus brief with a U.S. District Court in the lawsuit.

    CNN filed suit against the White House on Tuesday seeking the return of correspondent Jim Acosta's press credentials, which were revoked last week after a testy exchange with President Trump during a press conference.

    "FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter's press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized," Wallace said.

    "While we don't condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people."

    CNN has argued that the Trump administration violated Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights of free speech and due process. The case was filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., and is being overseen by Judge Timothy Kelly, a Trump appointee, who scheduled a hearing in the case for Wednesday.

    The White House dismissed CNN's lawsuit on Tuesday, accusing the network of "grandstanding." White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Acosta "is no more or less special than any other media outlet or reporter with respect to the First Amendment."

    The White House has argued that it was justified in suspending Acosta's hard pass after he did not allow a White House intern to take the microphone from him during a press conference when Trump cut him off after he asked several questions about the migrant caravan and the federal Russia probe.

    "After Mr. Acosta asked the President two questions — each of which the President answered — he physically refused to surrender the White House microphone to an intern, so that other reporters might ask their questions," Sanders said in a statement Tuesday.

    There have been numerous instances when I have agreed with FOX News.  Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for a shock.  I agree with FOX News for standing by CNN in their lawsuit against the Trump White House.  FOX News and CNN are rivals, both networks have differences in terms of style of reporting and getting the facts.  One thing they have in common, is that they both stand for a free press, and they believe in standing for both the first and fifth amendment rights when it comes to the press and due process.  I've once said that the job of the news media is to get the facts as far as the President of the United States is concerned.  It's part of the system of checks and balances in our government.  When questions get too heated for that President, unless you're Donald Trump, you're gonna say "No Comment At This Time."  Donald Trump would prefer to be combative.  The press is gonna continue to do their job, and I support it.

    Just saying.
