Reporters condemn White House decision to bar CNN’s Acosta

It is unclear whether Acosta will be turned away again on Thursday. It also remains to be seen whether White House reporters will walk out, or show solidarity with Acosta and CNN in other ways.
Acosta is CNN’s chief White House correspondent. He was trying to reenter the White House grounds for a live shot on „Anderson Cooper 360“ when he was stopped by Secret Service officers.

White House pulls pass from CNN reporter

The reasons Sanders gave for pulling Acosta’s press pass were clearly fabricated.

She claimed in a statement that Acosta placed “his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern,” which resulted in the decision to suspend Acosta’s access to the White House until further notice. Video replays of the interaction showed that this was clearly not the case.

To Axel Voss, the European Commission’s plan for a link tax is not extreme enough

(28.3.2018) Should the European Commission’s proposal for an extra copyright for news sites become law, restricting how we can share news online?

After repeated delays, MEP Axel Voss (EPP) has just released his proposal for the European Parliament’s position. His view? The Commission proposal for the “link tax” does not go far enough!

After he already advocated giving the green light to “censorship machines”, Voss wants the Parliament to double down on another disastrous law that would limit freedom of expression on the internet. It’s a direct attack on who big publishers feel threatened by: Internet platforms and web startups, as well as smaller, more innovative competitors.
