Petition to Give Alex Jones WH Credentials, Seat Him Next to Jim Acosta

The Legal Precedent That Could Protect Jim Acosta’s Credentials

A 1977 court ruling said that administrations cannot bar correspondents from the briefing room without “due process.”

 

Sherrill v. H Knight

 

Rather, we are presented with a situation where the White House has voluntarily decided to establish press facilities for correspondents who need to report therefrom. These press facilities are perceived as being open to all bona fide19 Washington-based journalists, whereas most of the White House itself, and press facilities in particular, have not been made available to the general public. White House press facilities having been made publicly available as a source of information for newsmen,20 the protection afforded newsgathering under the first amendment guarantee of freedom of the press, see Branzburg v. Hayes, 408 U.S. 665, 681, 707, 92 S.Ct. 2646, 33 L.Ed.2d 626 (1972); Pell v. Procunier, 417 U.S. 817, 829-35, 94 S.Ct. 2800, 41 L.Ed.2d 495 (1974), requires that this access not be denied arbitrarily or for less than compelling reasons. See Southeastern Promotions v. Conrad, 420 U.S. 546, 95 S.Ct. 1239, 43 L.Ed.2d 448 (1975); Lovell v. Griffin, 303 U.S. 444, 58 S.Ct. 666, 82 L.Ed. 949 (1938). Not only newsmen and the publications for which they write, but also the public at large have an interest protected by the first amendment in assuring that restrictions on newsgathering be no more arduous than necessary, and that individual newsmen not be arbitrarily excluded from sources of information. See Cox Broadcasting Corp. v. Cohn, 420 U.S. 469, 491-92, 95 S.Ct. 1029, 43 L.Ed.2d 328 (1975); Abrams v. United States, 250 U.S. 616, 630, 40 S.Ct. 17, 63 L.Ed. 1173 (1919) (Holmes, J., dissenting); United States v. Associated Press, 52 F.Supp. 362, 372 (S.D.N.Y.1943) ("right conclusions are more likely to be gathered out of a multitude of tongues, than through any kind of authoritative selection") (L. Hand, J.).

 

Alex Jones is based in Austin Texas, so that's going to be pretty difficult to say he's a Washington based journalist.

If banning even 1 reporter from WH press conferences is a violation of the 1st amendment then banning even 1 firearm is a violation of the second amendment.

The Saudis obviously hadn't learned that lesson until after the sh*tstorm erupted.

Because the rights in the BOR are not unlimited or unrestricted, as has been established by the courts for a few hundred years.

So, the President can't invite him to attend?

Trump could give Alex Jones a press pass and his moron followers would still complain about Fayke Nooz.

I"m sure if he were invited to attend he could get a pass. He hasn't been invited though, so a petition saying that he should get one is dumb since those passes go to DC based journalists.

 

And that's my last answer in the 'what if' game.

Says a lot that anybody would respond more to a post about Alex Jones and Acosta then Trump openly criticizing mcraven and the Obl raid.

 

Sort of the same way trash craves fast food.

Or be more concerned with going onto a website and constantly offering up the same old Trump whining that you do rather than actually doing anything with your life? Just saying... :dunno:

Technically there are two paths to control:

 

1. Revoke credentials of people you don't like.

2. Move the press briefing room to a larger venue and then pack it with all kinds of alt right people without revoking anyone's credentials, and then call on the alt righters.

 

Its a similar solution to the Supreme Court. If you can't beat the current court, you expand it and pack it with people who think like you.
