Entertainment Company CNN Files Lawsuit Against Trump White House

Given the wide chasm of political animosity that Americans are now learning to traverse, it should come as no surprise that the mainstream media will be undergoing a transformation.

In fact, we have already witnessed a great deal of this metamorphosis thanks to the ever-increasing power of corporate advertising.

Thanks to the exorbitant amount of money that our planet’s major corporations hold, the world of marketing and advertising has become an oppressive regime all their own as of late, using their massive wealth to influence those who they do business with.  In the realm of the mainstream media, this has led to an indelible shift away from facts and into the realm of entertainment.  You see, no one will watch television commercials unprovoked, so the only way for these advertisers to accomplish their goals of exposure is to ensure that CNN and other networks employ conflict and drama to keep eyes glued to the television.

If the advertisers feel as though these networks aren’t doing an adequate job of keeping viewers through the commercial breaks, they will simply pull their ads and take a bit out of the channel’s revenue.  This, folks, is not how the “news” works…this is how TV works…and our mainstream media is embarrassed to admit this reality.

So when CNN reporter Jim Acosta was relieved of his press pass after creating high drama in the East Room for the sake of ratings, his parent network lost a very real opportunity for viewership.  You see, Acosta was a nuisance that attracted a whole plethora of “resistance” viewers to the network.  Now that he’s sidelined from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, CNN is concerned about their ability to create drama and sell commercials.

That’s why they are suing the White House.

It’s official. CNN has just sued President Trump and several of his top aides over their decision to suspend Jim Acosta’s White House credentials:

CNN is filing a lawsuit against President Trump and several of his aides, seeking the immediate restoration of chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s access to the White House.

The lawsuit is a response to the White House’s suspension of Acosta’s press pass, known as a Secret Service “hard pass,” last week. The suit alleges that Acosta and CNN’s First and Fifth Amendment rights are being violated by the ban.

The suit is being filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday morning, a CNN spokeswoman confirmed.

Both CNN and Acosta are plaintiffs in the lawsuit.

CNN is a private company that sells advertising on television, and is suing for access gather material from the home of the US President in order to do so, even after their reporter caused a scene and accosted an intern while berating the President.

Much like the mainstream social media world has rescinded the ability of conservative news outlets to speak freely on the internet, the White House has taken precautions against a known agitator and television personality who put his hands on a young woman when told that his time was up.  This is pretty cut and dry here, and CNN’s lawsuit may be nothing more than an attempt to get their star annoyance back in front the cameras before they lose any more advertisers.
