Now you are thinking. Quite honestly I like how Trump does the quick chats before taking off in the heli.

Neither you nor I know what the hell you're talking about. Even the most broad and generous interpretation of your comment, is still completely flawed.

Allow me to provide some insight.

Whenever anyone holds a press event; it is by design, to benefit the person/group conducting the event. The White House Press Conferences exist to benefit the White House; just as Pentagon press conferences exist to help the Pentagon; just as BMW press conferences exist to help BMW. These events provide a venue to promote and communicate their messages. There's a fundamental misunderstanding to think press conferences exist to help the press hold people/organizations accountable.

I'm meaning he has the right to say what he wants. If the President wants to call on him that's up to him. I don't think he should kick him out. Honestly isn't worth the fight, and quite frankly, it's what they want to happen.

Spent 8 years as an elected official so I have some back ground in this. I always let people have a voice, even if I didn't like what they had to say. Business and politics are not the same even if you want to think that way. Things would run smoother if they were. But this is all just my generous interpretation.

This is a moot point, the trump administration hasn't held a press conference in over 300 days. What is the likelihood they will hold one prior to the election?

The current Press Secretary has yet to hold an official press conference since she was appointed. Sure trump has yelled over the blades of a waiting Marine One, but that's not an official press conference. Why is this administration so afraid of the press?

Nobody is muffling the man, he has the right to spout off or print anything he chooses which does often. The President also has the right not to be forced to answer questions from those he chooses not to converse with. He’s American also and has rights also. There are other reporters from his network there and he does take their questions quite often. Acosta isn’t called on because he’s a dick.
Oboma seldom answered questions from Fox journalists at pressers and he bad mouthed the network pretty regularly. Where were all you guys then? Crickets

What? Okay man. Sounds like you're upset.
I could care less if he gets called on, or if his question is taken. Not allowing him in seems dumb. The president does not have to answer his questions, and can easily navigate the questions into something he wants.

You take from my post that I was upset? You must really be super sensitive.
Perhaps youíve witnessed Acosta refusing to let go at these pressers when the President is asking other reporters questions. He went so far as to refuse to give the mic back when a White House staffer tried to take it. He doesnít comply with the norm protocol at these events. The White House sets the rules there.

That may be so but he is not obligated to speak the truth. The press is obligated to speak the truth and not masquerade their opinions as fact (NYT, CNN). They have enormous power and influence over the readers, and when they become corrupt and use that power for their own gains, itís far more dangerous.

You sir, win The Internet today. Congratulations.
This is a succinct summation of the current press.


In it's current form, the media is the propaganda arm of the DNC.

Certainly that's Trump you're talking about.

Would Acosta be more liked if he tossed softballs to Trump, like "Fox and Friends"?
