CNN’s Jim Acosta: WH Doesn’t Want ‘You To See And Hear What They’re Doing’

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta blasted the Trump administration for refusing to allow cameras to record a “normal” press briefing and for “taking away” voters’ ability to “see and hear what they’re doing” in series of tweets on Thursday.




Acosta also said that, while ” ‘pen and pad’ gaggles are common, the White House’s refusal to hold on-camera press briefings “is different.”

The Hill added:

“Acosta has emerged as one of the most vocal critics in the media of President Trump’s administration’s alleged efforts to block reporters’ access to information and hinder their ability to ask questions.

Acosta and other reporters fumed over a decision Monday to hold an off-camera briefing, after the White House had not done so in a week.”
