Fox News and a host of other broadcasters and media outlets are filing friend-of-the-court briefs to support CNN and Jim Acosta’s lawsuit against President Trump and several top aides.
As well as Fox News, other media companies joining in the protest are The Associated Press, Bloomberg, First Look Media, Gannett, NBC News, The New York Times, Politico, USA Today, the National Press Club Journalism Institute, the Press Freedom Defense Fund, and the E.W. Scripps Company.
Despite being rivals, Fox News said this was about free press and it was siding with 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.”
On Wednesday, the White House said it had the right to expel media reporters from talking to the President. In court, it defended its right to revoke the press pass of CNN’s Acosta.
The judge will make its ruling today in the case.
