OAN!!!! Conservative outlet One America News files brief in support of White House in CNN legal battle

The head of conservative outlet One America News Network (OANN) said Thursday that the organization will file an amicus brief in support of the White House as it faces a lawsuit from CNN over the revocation of reporter Jim Acosta's press pass.

OANN CEO Robert Herring wrote on Twitter that the organization backs the White House's decision in part because he believes Acosta prevents the network's own reporters from asking questions.

"We are going to file in the CNN vs White House court an Amicus Brief in favor of the White House. Acosta’s actions are stopping our people from getting their questions answered, so that we can give our audience the real news direct from our President," Herring wrote.

He singled out Fox News for its support of CNN, saying the network has "direct communication to the President."

"We are lucky if we get a five minute interview once a quarter," Herring added.

Emerald Robinson interviewed Trump for OANN last month. Trump has not appeared on CNN since he took office. 

CNN filed a lawsuit earlier this week alleging that the White House violated Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights by pulling his press credentials following a heated press conference with the president.

Fox News, Bloomberg, CBS News and several other organizations have issued statements or filed amicus briefs backing CNN's legal challenge.

"The ability of the press to question vigorously and regularly elected officials and to report freely on the activities of these officials is fundamental to our democracy," the White House Correspondents Association argued in its brief.

The judge in the case, Timothy Kelly of the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., said he will rule Friday on CNN's request for a temporary restraining order that would restore Acosta's credentials.
