#1 Female White House interns, they be DANGEROUS!

#2 I got some spittle on me from Jack Chaiter7913's unhinged shouting.

#3 The Rantburg medical team's determination is that Jack has lost his sanity, otherwise he would simply be shot as a spy. Hold the line Herb.

#4 Fox News President Jay Wallace said that Secret Service passes for working White House journalists "should never be weaponized." Fox News was one of the organizations part of the filing.

I was ok with Fox defending the guild; this statement is just stupid. The press is a guest in the house, and acting the ass will get us all kicked out. Acosta was obviously on a two Irish Coffee 3pm gripe. Police your own.

Accosta is an ass. Painfully obvious. He drips of it. So much of an ass when a dog greets him, the dog sticks its nose in his ear. I haven't seen a more classic 'no my blankee' move since I had a two year old with a head cold.

#5 Give him his pass and then cancel the press conference every day. Maybe his peers will suggest he behave professionally in the future.

#6 Whatever the judge decides will also apply to the next Democratic president. Something to keep in mind.

#7 Considering the last democratic president tapped the phone of major journalists I am unsure that any judges decsion will impact the next democratic president.

#8 It does have broad discretion. The press are guests. It can resend any and all passes if it so wishes.

Personally, I am at the point where I would pull all press passes and just email a press statement to everyone each day.

#9 Fox made a mistake mixing itself up with that a$$h__e Acosta. It has nothing to do with freedom of the press. It has everything do do with Acosta's behaviors that went beyond the Pale. All the President wanted to do is to preserve some decorum and respect the dignity of the White House and Presidency. Acosta is just an attention 'ho.

Europe doesn't even have free speech rights; you guys work on that and stay out of our business.
