For starters, Jim Acosta isn’t a “reporter” because he editorializes constantly, spouting DNC talking points poorly disguised as questions. In any case, the White House yanked Resistance Cronkite’s press credentials:

And with that, many “journalists” (the media have been so ridiculous these last two years the quote marks should be required by law) were defending Acosta on constitutional grounds, starting with the Godfather of Fake News, Dan Rather:

Sorry Dan, but the American press remains as free as it was the day you used your First Amendment right as a reporter to push bogus documents in an attempt to sway a presidential election just days before it took place. Sit down.

Others also weighed in:

Even Jeb Bush got in on the act:

Like I said before, Acosta does not ask questions — he makes political statements on behalf of Democrats. And there is no First Amendment right to grandstand in the White House.
