CNN and Jim Acosta are allegedly suing the Trump administration for removing the press credentials of the controversial reporter following a tense incident Wednesday during a news conference at the White House.

Saturday Night Live tackled the recent controversy over the removal of CNN's Jim Acosta's credentials on "Weekend Update", as a "White House intern" appeared on the show and snatched co-anchor Colin Jost's pencil. CEO Jeff Zucker, in a letter to White House chief of staff John Kelly, called it a "pattern of targeted harassment". CNN claims the revocation of Acosta's press pass violates the constitutional rights to freedom on the press and due process. A White House intern came to take Acosta's microphone, but Acosta moved away and said "pardon me, ma'am" and tried to continue questioning.

"At this point, though, even the White House Correspondents' Association has not threatened a walkout", Rutenberg writes, seeming to suggest such a strategy.

"They don't need to cover a man who is picking fights with them for the objective of turning out his base", [the Democratic strategist] said. Acosta posted a video on Twitter showing him being denied entry. They both agreed that this will happen again, now that the White House is setting the position.

CNN asked for an injunction to immediately reinstate Acosta, as well as a hearing on the larger issue of barring a reporter.

That wasn't mentioned by Sanders in a statement Tuesday.

Ms Sanders said he had behaved inappropriately towards the young woman.

Trump told Acosta at the news conference that "CNN should be ashamed of itself, having you work for them".

The Washington Times stated Acosta "refused to yield the floor to questions from other reporters", and he also refused to return the microphone to a White House intern, prompting Trump to call him "a very unprofessional guy", according to NBC. "You are a rude, bad person". "In doing so, the CNN White House reporter gave President Donald Trump room to critique Acosta's professionalism".
