#1 Trump-appointed Judge Timothy J. Kelly acknowledged that the White House credentialing process has a First Amendment component,

No it does not. Creating 'rights' where none exist. Another power grab.

#2 There are way more reporters than just those goofs from the major news shows. Rather than permanent admission, let's have a daily lottery to see who gets inside for the press conference.

#3 Everyone should turn up and demand a "question"...

Everyone should have the same First amendment rights after all.

#4 Getting invited isn't a "right". It is a public and government place, but the only government duty that the press corps has is to issue statements.

Other than that there is no real "right" to being their live.

Cancel the live press conferences and just issue a press statement daily.

#6 Just don't call on him. Don't SAY you're not going to call on him, because the Court would probably find that a violation of his rights. Just don't actually call on him - consider him an empty chair.

#7 That's fine for now; just never call on him again...

He can bring his own mic next time.

#8 Cancel all live press briefings. Just issue press statements and video. Let the rest of the Press turn on Acosta for causing it

#9 Me in the Press Pool.

"Thank you **** for selecting me for the next question. My question, however, is for Mr. Accoster...first sir, have you had your after lunch martini yet, because I would like a sober answer for a change. Why are you here?"
