O’Rourke Slams Trump over Acosta’s Press Pass: He Shouldn’t Be Picking Who Covers the White House
REPORTER: "So what do you think about that? Is that a good move?"
O'ROURKE: "That he got his credentials back? Yeah, absolutely. I don't think the President of the United States, any president should be picking who is reporting what's going on in the White House or who's covering them. Look, I think the press, far from being the enemy of the people, is the best defense against tyranny. It's fundamental to our democracy being successful, to all of us making informed decisions at the ballot box, and knowing who — how those who are representing us are using the public trust and the public resources, so yeah, I think you just don't mess with that."
