NYT Best-Selling Author Brigitte Gabriel: White House Doesn’t Owe Jim Acosta Anything
‘RISE’ Author Says the Constitution Provides Acosta the Right to Report What He Wishes But Does Not Demand That the White House Accommodate Anyone Who Demands Access to the President
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The White House and CNN are embroiled in a legal battle over the revoked press credentials from reporter Jim Acosta, but New York Times best-selling author Brigitte Gabriel says the president doesn’t owe anyone a free pass to the White House pressroom.
Gabriel addresses similar topics in her new book, “RISE: In Defense of Judeo-Christian Values and Freedom,” which was released on Sept. 11 by FrontLine, an imprint of Charisma House. In a chapter titled, “Lamestream Media,” Gabriel says the mainstream media is an institution of pure group-think, in which one radical leftist ideology controls the news.
“CNN’s lawsuit over the revocation of Jim Acosta’s White House press pass displays crystal clearly just how clueless the left is about the Constitution, as well as how readily willing they are to throw a childlike fit when they don’t get their way,” she said. “The Constitution provides Jim Acosta the right to report what he wishes about the president, even if ridden with the usual leftist lies and smears. What the Constitution does not do is demand that the White House accommodate anyone who demands access to the president or Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Until CNN can show some respect for the Oval Office and those who occupy it by refusing to follow direct orders, let them engineer their smear campaign from outside the White House, rather than within it.”
