Hofstra Experts In the News Lawrence Herbert School of Communication

CNN/White House Legal Battle

Los Angeles Times

Mark Lukasiewicz, dean of the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, weighed in on a court decision that reinstated CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press access to the White House on the grounds that he was denied due process.  The White House initially revoked Acosta’s press credential after he and President Trump had a heated exchange at a Nov. 7 press conference.

“The White House has lots of other ways to deal with the behavior of reporters, if that’s their concern, but closing the gate to a news organization is not one of these ways, and it’s important that the court stood up and said that,” Dean Lukasiewicz told the Los Angeles Times.  “It’s not the first time a reporter has behaved in a way that a president doesn’t like.”
