3.) Siding With CNN

Fox News stood by CNN after Jim Acosta, their senior White House correspondent, had his credentials revoked.

Acosta’s contentious relationship with President Trump hit rock bottom when he wouldn’t immediately surrender the microphone after challenging the president about the then-approaching migrant caravan.

Afterward, Acosta lost his Secret Service “hard pass.” This prompted his network to sue the president. 

Fox News announced it would file an amicus brief in the case, supporting CNN:

“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. 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,” Fox News President Jay Wallace confirmed in a press release. 

After a Trump appointed federal judge granted CNN’s request for a court order to temporarily reinstate Acosta’s credentials, the White House abandoned its plans for further punitive action.
