NEW RULES: The White House will not seek to again revoke CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta's hard press pass, as first reported on Monday by FOX News' John Roberts ... “Today the White House fully restored Jim Acosta's press pass. As a result, our lawsuit is no longer necessary. We look forward to continuing to cover the White House,” CNN said in a statement. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also implemented a series of rules that will govern White House press conferences going forward.
According to Sanders, the new rules include: (1) A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists. (2) At the discretion of the president or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up has been allowed and asked, the questioner will then yield the floor. - Reported by Brian Flood (@briansflood on Twitter)
