Petition to Give Alex Jones White House Press Pass Gets 50 Thousand Signatures
Needs 100K to be considered for White House response
“Alex Jones’ first amendment [sic] rights are being violated everyday he does not have White House press credentials,” states the petition, which pushed past the 50,000 mark Thursday.
Launched after the Office of the Press Secretary reinstated CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass, which was previously revoked over a spat with a White House intern, the petition further asks that Jones be sat directly next to Acosta:
“Let Alex Jones have press credentials and a permanent seat next to Jim Acosta!”
