In response to the president’s especially adversarial attitude toward Acosta and other members of the news media during the post-election news conference, the National Press Club issued a statement of criticism.

“The president’s personal attacks on reporters, especially on CNN’s Jim Acosta, during a Nov. 7 news conference were unprecedented and beneath the dignity of the office,” wrote Andrea Edney, the organization’s president. “The president and his aides have suggested they are aggrieved only by certain segments of the media, not all of it. But the Fourth Estate stands as one. An attack on any of us is an attack on all of us.”

She went on to claim that Acosta’s credentials were revoked “without reasonable cause,” calling it “a new low” that the White House would use “a doctored video” to support its decision.
