White House suspends CNN's Jim Acosta

NABJ President Sarah Glover called them among the "finest reporters covering the White House".

The video, originally made by an employee of Infowars, a far-right conspiracy website, shows Acosta's reaction to a White House employee who tried to grab a microphone from him while he attempted to question Donald Trump at a press conference on Wednesday.

"Honestly, I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better", Trump eventually told Acosta before trying to move along to another reporter. It doesn't help that I'm from a smaller news network, American Urban Radio Networks.

"He knew it would cause a problem and it would make a story", Huntsman said, as Behar tried to switch the discussion back to Trump. But she is very nasty and she shouldn't be. "That's not doctoring", Trump later said.

Regan shot back by pointing to Trump's exchange with "white male correspondent" Jim Acosta, "just in case you were too inside your own head, April, and too inside your own situation to actually notice anything else that was going on in the room".

Acosta, meanwhile, is in Paris, where Trump will be landing later on Friday.

Trump said "nobody manipulated" a video distributed by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders that showed Acosta resisting an intern's attempt to take a microphone from him during a news conference on Friday.

The version shared by Sanders also omits Acosta's "Pardon me, ma'am". The video proved otherwise. CNN said Sanders' explanation a lie.

He continued, "When you're in the White House, this is a very sacred place to me".

"Sources with direct knowledge tell Jonathan Swan that since the earliest days of his presidency, Trump has mused about revoking press credentials for reporters who infuriate him", Axios reports.

CNN has been working behind the scenes on a resolution that would restore Acosta's pass.

Jimmy Kimmel is weighing in on the ongoing feud between the White House and CNN reporter Jim Acosta.

But some journalists - concerned about which reporter might be targeted next - have been calling for action to match the words.

Social users were quick to accuse the press secretary of "editing" the footage to make Mr Acosta's movement appear more forceful. "Surely", he wrote, "we must realize that if it works with CNN, this will just be the first time, and not the last". But in effect, the White House is trying to veto Acosta. "But they have to come in legally".

As he left the White House for a brief trip to France, CNN reporter Abby Phillip asked the president whether he wanted his new acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, to "rein in" special counsel Robert Mueller, as has been widely speculated.

When NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the mic for the next question, he defended Acosta as a "diligent reporter" - earning Trump's ire.
