‘This Is a Betrayal’: Trump Fans Descend Into Pandemonium After Fox News Supports CNN’s Acosta
Donald Trump fans are not happy that their favorite “news” network is filing an amicus brief on behalf of CNN’s Jim Acosta, who had his White House press pass revoked by the Trump administration last week.
“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” Fox News President Jay Wallace said on Tuesday. “Secret Service passes for White House journalists should never be weaponized.”
Wallace’s announcement that his network would be supporting Acosta’s challenge to his press pass getting revoked was met with heavy criticism from several of Donald Trump supporters who saw Fox’s decision to show solidarity with CNN as a clear betrayal of the President.
Check out some of the reactions to Fox News media critic Howard Kurtz after he tweeted the network’s announcement below.

First Tell me where the first amd guarantees you access to anyone and anywhere?
If I was @realDonaldTrump @PressSec I would solve the problem by NOT holding any press briefings! Kinda of takes the poor media (FYI that isn't needed anymore) out of the POOR LITTLE OLD ME coverage!

The time has come to find a new voice for Republicans. FOX news has lost its focus. If I want to hear CNN, I know where to find them, and the rest of the left-wing liberal biased media. Say it ain’t so, FOX.

If the Supreme Court decides Trump must accept Acosta I hope he closes down all press briefings. Famous quote Andrew Jackson… The Supreme Court has made their decision let them enforce it
