As President Donald Trump points to CNN's Jim Acosta, a White House aide takes the microphone from him during a news conference in the East Room of the White House, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, in Washington.

Acosta was denied entry to the White House grounds after his sensational confrontation with Mr Trump at a news conference following the midterm elections.

Saturday Night Live tackled the recent controversy over the removal of CNN's Jim Acosta's credentials on "Weekend Update", as a "White House intern" appeared on the show and snatched co-anchor Colin Jost's pencil.

"We have asked this court for an immediate restraining order requiring the pass be returned to Jim, and will seek permanent relief as part of this process", CNN said in a statement.

"Mr. Acosta's press credentials must be restored so that all members of the press know they will remain free to ask tough questions, challenge government officials and report the business of the nation to the American people", said Theodore Olson, former USA solicitor general and one of CNN's lawyers on the case. They both agreed that this will happen again, now that the White House is setting the position.

"The White House can not run an orderly and fair press conference when a reporter acts this way, which is neither appropriate nor professional", Sanders said. She called his behavior "absolutely unacceptable".

She said his press credentials were revoked because the White House will "never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern". But that would make them look like they're at war with the president, just as he always says they are. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history.

Rutenberg quotes a Democratic strategist who said that the President calling out media bias is simply a way of "turning out his base" without any acknowledgment that many Trump voters have been extremely frustrated by anti-conservative media bias.

CNN sent a letter to the White House formally requesting the immediate reinstatement of Acosta's pass on Friday, warning that a legal challenge could follow.
