Trump calls April Ryan a 'loser,' threatens to revoke more press credentials

Source: The Hill



BY JORDAN FABIAN - 11/09/18 10:03 AM EST

President Trump on Friday suggested he could pull press credentials from other reporters who don't show him "respect."

The comments come two days after the president suspended the press pass of CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta after a contentious exchange during a news conference.

"I think Jim Acosta is a very unprofessional man," Trump said of Acosta. Asked how long Acosta's credentials will be suspended, the president replied: "As far as I'm concerned, I haven't made that decision. But it could be others also"

Trump also went after April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks as a "loser" who "doesn't know what the hell she is doing."

1. Attacks another African American woman.

All reporters need to unify and stop covering this insanity.

4. So far, the rest don't care as long as their folks get in.

Faux would never pull their pretend reporters, true suckups. However, don't know why ABC, NBC,CBS and ll the others don't pull theirs. They 100% should.

17. Why? There are good reporters from the networks you listed.

The owners of the networks you listed are not progressive. I agree 100% with your post but those networks are going to have to start straying from their right wing narratives, notice I said networks.
MSNBC is falsely considered a progressive network. I remember back when Phil Donahue was railing against invading Iraq and Tweety was pushing for it, msnbc fired Donahue. Keith Olbermann, Dylan Ratigan, Harris/Perry, Brashear, Ugyur, Schultz all had worse than having their press passes taken away, they all had popular shows that strayed too far from the right wing narratives, they all lost their jobs, they all were fired.

I would very much like to see ABC, NBC, CBS, and the others pull their reporters, because they all have good reporters just like msnbc had good cable news hosts. All of the M$M is corporate controlled. We need a billionaire, Steyer maybe, to start a real progressive cable news network that is capable of changing the right wing narratives that we hear being preached every day.

One of Trump's best tactics is to project. The M$M was one of the biggest reasons that Donald Trump was elected president. The best thing that the M$M can do is to stop smothering us with right wing narratives.

NYT reporters spent a year and a half uncovering the Trump crime family's financial crimes, money laundering, scams, tax fraud, how long did cable news devote to that bombshell report, 2 days?

In summary, the M$M doesn't cater to Trump because it is a money maker, that is secondary, the M$M is complicit with Trump and his corporate right wing agenda.
Acosta is a popular reporter that's why there is this stink being made. Acosta isn't the first reporter to have his credentials taken away, there have been others, even a news agency was banned.

Sorry about the long rant. I agree with your post but there is already a long history of reporters being canned for straying from the narrative. I will say that I do watch Nicole Wallace, Chris Hayes, Rachel and Don Lemon to stay sane. They are pushing the limits and straying from the narrative, maybe things are changing, I hope so.

25. Phil Donahue was told that for every liberal guest he had to have two conservative ones.

Also -- and I don't know if this is still true -- at one time CNN had a military advisor to ensure coverage of the military was "accurate."

5. tRump the blockhead

is so quick to label others as incompetent. Has he EVER looked into a mirror, or does Malaria take up all the space? He accuses others of not knowing what they are doing, while he ambles along, insulting everyone but his closest "advisors", making mistake after mistake. The gop OWNS this stain on the US electorate. Biggest fraud to EVER set foot into the WH.

Then only the Disposables will have to be subjected to President Turd's lies. No reputable media organization has any business humoring the thug's fame fantasies.

9. He also called terrorists losers

After the terrorist attack in Manchester he said the attack was committed by a bunch of losers. He was very specific about using that word losers, thought it had a lot of impact. I know he’s an idiot and probably doesn’t remember saying that but it does seem suspicious.

14. The Constitution

That Trump continues to ignore, because he knows that the Republicans won't do anything!

On the advice he's probably receiving from Stephen Miller, Trump is pushing the envelope! As it stands now the Constitution means nothing to him...and as long as he has McConnell, Graham and the rest of those boot licking Republicans in his pocket(listed in his payment ledger), he will keep pushing until the US Constitution means nothing, at all!!!

15. the whole darn Press Corp should just boycott this liar permanently

The Idiot offers nothing of substance in his press conferences; instead he spews lies, belittles and bullies the press. He uses it as a propaganda ploy. They need to shut him off media coverage altogether as what he has to say is dangerous and undignified. There is no place in polite society for such a hideous man.

18. No. They should band together & be a huge prickly thorn in his paw.

If Trump kicks someone out, the next journalist should ask the same exact question. Ignoring him won't make him go away & their job is to question & hold him accountable. We need their help removing this shitstain.

they stop it.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

24. The press should not show up to interview him in person.

No more "helicopter interviews," no one showing up at his pressers or setting up cameras at the back of the audience at his taxpayer-funded rallies so he can scream about the "dishonest media." Just make him disappear from television. Let him tweet all he wants, but continue to do the great investigative journalism that has revealed all the corruption he's involved with.

Tell him that if he wants back on air, he will apologize publicly and privately to every single journalist he has insulted by name (Katy Tur, Jim Costa, etc.) and state without qualification to the American people that he fully supports the First Amendment and will never call the media "Fake News."

Yeah, that'll happen.

Listen up you orange asshole! If you had spent ANY time in the military, you would have learned that respect is a TWO way street.

Saluting an officer is not a one way deal. They salute back!

Sunday is Veterans Day AND the Marine Corps birthday.

I don't want to hear shit from him!

He has earned ZERO respect!

30. There are plenty of ways the press can push back.

Each reporter taking up any previous question that is dismissed would be sensible. If I were a managing a newsroom, this would be instigated starting on Trumps upcoming Europe trip. I would also place limits on photos. Nobody needs to see a picture of Trump trying to look Presidential appearing with foreign leaders, or standing by a memorial. If the President will not respect the press, the press should boycott staged photo-ops

BERLIN — When a video of two Donald Trump supporters shouting “Lügenpresse” (lying press) started to circulate Sunday, viewers from Germany soon noted its explosive nature. The defamatory word was most frequently used in Nazi Germany. Today, it is a common slogan among those branded as representing the “ugly Germany”: members of xenophobic, right-wing groups
