Wow! Even Trump’s propaganda outlet recognizes that he stepped over the line.

Fox News announced Wednesday that it is supporting CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump administration over its suspension of Jim Acosta’s White House press pass.
“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” network chief Jay Wallace said in a statement.
“We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized,” he added.
“While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”
On Tuesday, CNN filed a lawsuit in US District Court in Washington, DC, seeking to have Acosta’s so-called “hard pass” restored after he was banned for tussling with an intern during a news conference with President Trump.
My prediction is that Acosta’s White House press credentials will be reinstated by next week.
I think Trump can handle criticism by those media outlets he calls the enemy of the people, but not the one that he counts on to help cover up for his ineptitude.
If Trump loses Fox News then he will only have his Twitter account to help spin his lies.
