CNN’s Jim Acosta lashed out at White House for banning CNN reporter from a press event, Acosta said the banning is a “New low for the White House”

“A new low for the White House,” he tweeted. “My colleague … deserves better than this.”

“All journalists covering the [White House] deserve better than this,” he added. “As do the American people.

 

CNN has earlier confirmed that one of the network’s White House reporters, Kaitlan Collins, was barred from a press event in the Rose Garden for asking President Trump questions earlier that day.

As reported by Hill Collins was acting as the “pool reporter” for all networks during Trump’s meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday afternoon. During a photo op in the Oval Office, Collins reportedly asked the president questions about the day’s most talked-about stories, a typical move for a pool reporter.

The White House deputy chief of staff for communications Bill Shine and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later told Collins that she was not invited to a press availability in the Rose Garden that afternoon because she “shouted” and asked questions that were “inappropriate” for the venue during the Oval Office meeting, according to the CNN report.

Sanders confirmed that Collins was told she could not participate.

“At the conclusion of a press event in the Oval Office, a reporter shouted questions and refused to leave despite repeatedly being asked to do so,” Sanders said in a statement to the White House press pool.
