    Pot calling the kettle black on Trump calling Acosta rude, but lord that was a looooong time comin. About time he came out and said it. 

    I think Trump was emboldened after every one of his endorsements won tbh. Acosta had to go and put his hands on the intern to stop her from getting the mic too apparently, preceding Acosta being chastised, so now he's gone from the WH(for now?o). Free to try and talk at CNN all day about how persecuted he is 😂. 

    This was one of those situations that would have been so worth it if i were in Trumps shoes. Dude has family that is Jewish, and CNN has people on trying to attribute the recent synagogue shooting to him. Saying he's radicalized more people than ISIS, appealing to white nationalists, etc. I'd be ready to throw down tbh 😂

    The worlds different reaction from Trump between MSNBC and CNN was funny. 

    "Well you know how it(MSNBC) is, and i can't change that" 

    "You wanna talk about voter suppression? Take a look at CNN's polling, that's voter suppression.(it was abysmally bad?)" 

    🔥So Spicy🔥

    That was sweet. But the WH should have bouncers to make reporters follow the rules. Big Canadian dudes who will MAKE entitled reporters give up the mic and shut up.

    when he walked away from the podium, I would have kept walking and said sorry folks this is over and you can thank him for it, and left.  He's doing THEM a favor talking as long and often as he does, they sure as hell are doing Trump any favors.  why these mics don't have a remote cut off switch i'll never understand.

    What about the evidence that the WH used a doctored video to support their argument against Acosta?

    It'll be hand waved away as either fake news or irrelevant.

    There is no shortage of coverage for this event.  What relevant information to the behavior of Mr. Acosta is missing from the video?

    It was an edited video that zoomed in on the Acosta and the intern. 


    The claim was that it was doctored in a fashion that speeds it up. But it's almost like things automatically look faster when they're zoomed in cause now the frames focus has changed, centered around a smaller area, which causes a blurry effect to movements outside it. 

    For a comparison look at football broadcasts. When they take closer looks in replays such as on hits, they slow it down. This is necessarily to keep the picture itself clear and remove motion blur. The video is "doctored" in the sense that it zoomed in on the exchange. But the speeds from original, to zoom, if you actually comprehend how cameras operate, wasn't actually changed, it just looks that way as a natural by by product of zooming in. 

    Seriously, the argument being made here is basically, "i did put my hands on her and refuse to acquiesce the mic after already asking a couple questions. But the video is doctored so that means I did nothing wrong!" 

    No, even if the original offense was still committed. If you smash somebodies windows, and they come out with a video that shows you smashing their windows. It doesn't matter whether it's sped up or zoomed in. That doesn't change that you smashed their windows. What kind of fantasy world does one have to live in where that's what it means?

    It was edited! Says the people being played for suckers cause they dont know how cameras and video editing work.

    What next? Clearly if you look at the original video her arm looks like it moves far less when Acostas hand comes down on it!"

    Yes, because the further away from something you are in perspective, the less perceptible movements appear. What more about our own senses and how cameras and editing works is it required we cover?

    doctored how?  zooming in and looping is done all the time, can't be considered doctored, there was nothing added, removed or faked from watching the original and the zoomed.  I was actually watching when it happened and there's nothing 'doctored" unless you are seeing something different, if so a link is really needed.

    No, it actually was, literally, sped up. Even factoring in the zoom.

    Seriously, the argument being made here is basically, "i did put my hands on her and refuse to acquiesce the mic after already asking a couple questions. But the video is doctored so that means I did nothing wrong!" 
    Two people can do things wrong. Just because one person does something wrong doesn't mean any and everything and all things done against them in response is automatically acceptable.

    The White House shouldn't be using doctored footage as evidence against someone. Period. This statement is true, regardless of the factuality of the accusation.

    And, if this was a court of law, you're absolutely right that the case of the prosecution would be diminished by the use of doctored evidence.

    Can someone explain how this works to me?  I would assume you need to cut frames to digitally "speed up" part of a video.  I can't verify this twitter guy's work.  Is there a doctored infowars video that matches exactly what Sarah Sanders uploaded onto her twitter?

    you can change the playback speed on files then save them, it's not complicated at all, even if it was sped up I don't see how that's relevant in anyway way, Acosta has gotten more leeway than he deserves for a very long time, he pushed her arm away, doesn't matter what video you watch, that's what happened, she was trying to get the microphone from him, she seemed to be in a hurry so not sure what exactly her job is/was, but no matter what speed you watch the video at, what happened happened.

    here watch it in slow-mo

    Acosta is a notorious heckler, and Trump should've thrown him out long before he did.

    Agreed on all points. But I think a White House that habitually lies is more concerning than an aggressive reporter.

    tbh I'm use to and expect politicians to lie, I mean how can you not be?  it just boils down to their skill at it.  Imo they didn't need to use what you see in the video as an excuse for the ban.  I'm not sure why they even went there other than to make Acosta look bad/worse than usual and perhaps gain some sympathy.  Acosta knows/knew the job of that intern, so he's a dick for many reasons and on many levels. To that end there should be several microphones which have a kill switch.  They should have left him holding a deactivated mic and given an active one to someone else, issue solved.

    The same is true of children, yet we still teach them otherwise and establish consequences.

    Less sympathy for themselves and more antipathy for Acosta and the press in general.

    what has surprised me is the other reporters don't put pressure on him or black ball him.  The time he uses and wastes is time they could be asking questions etc  He's like the basketball player who hogs the ball, shoots ever chance he can, and sucks at it.

    I mean let's face it, he used his male strength to prevent her from take the mic which she grabbed, but using his left hand/arm to push her arm down.  Bit aggressive given the setting etc.

    children are generally teachable hehe  politicians who are mostly lawyers go through 8 years of grueling college to learn and hone this skill, and some make a great deal of money doing it.  But w/o going too far into the weeds, civility is all but dead, we are near the bottom imo as evidenced by violence against those whom they disagree with.  I see no turning back from the polarization.

    Idio-ump is notorious heckler of truth and morality and should be Locked Away Today! Along with his Super-Trumpanzee shpeele.

    He and they are disgrace to civilized humanity.  They ____ in the civilzed water and then stir it round and round to make it the smell worse and worse.

    393 million guns in america and Trumpanzees still do not have enough guns.  Sick-n-the head.

    Holy crap, seems not long ago during the last president's administration it was thought to be in the low 300's, about one per person.  The market observers disagree about not having enough though, said to be in the "Trump slump" right now.  I wonder how many media devices we have.

    According to my 1 minute search there are thought to be over 300 million televisions and over 200 million smart phones in the US.  Over 10+ million tablets were sold recently in a single year.

    It's irrelevant. In today's meetoo witch hunt zeitgeist, merely touching a female without consent as a male is rape.
