Also asks White House to seat Jones beside Jim Acosta
WE THE PEOPLE ASK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO PROPOSE A NEW ADMINISTRATION POLICY:
Give Alex Jones press credentials and sit him next to Jim Acosta
Created by T.S. on November 17, 2018
A White House petition calls for Infowars founder Alex Jones to receive press credentials, following CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s pass being reinstated.
“Alex Jones’ first amendment [sic] rights are being violated everyday he does not have White House press credentials,” the petition reads.
THIS IS AMERICA!
“Let Alex Jones have press credentials and a permanent seat next to Jim Acosta!”
The petition comes after a federal judge last week ordered the White House to return Acosta’s pass, prompting questions over a potential free speech double standard – especially considering CNN was a prime mover behind censoring Alex Jones and Infowars.
On Friday several prominent conservatives questioned why Acosta’s free speech seemed to trump that of Jones’.
As of writing, over 5,000 people have already signed the two-day old petition. Petitions at WhiteHouse.gov require 100,000 signatures within 30 days in order to be considered for an official response.
