As Trump Bans CNN Acosta UN Guterres Roughed Up and Bans Inner City Press 126 Days

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NY Post

UNITED NATIONS, November 7 – Amid the outrage at the Trump White House suspending the credential and access of CNN's Jim Acosta - which we share - it is worth noting that UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on 3 July 2018 has critical Inner City Press roughed up as it covered the UN Budget Committee: UK Independent with video here

 Then Guterres had Inner City Press' UN media accreditation, in place for ten years, suspended for weeks and weeks, with Inner City Press having to report on the UN from the sidewalk. CJR here.

  On August 17 Guterres' Global Communicator Alison Smale issued an order withdrawing Inner City Press' accreditation, without any hearing and no appeal. She never answered UN Special Rapporteur David Kaye's question about an appeals process. There is none, and the UN unlike the US government is not immune from lawsuit.

  The UN has gone further, putting Inner City Press on a non -public list of people banned from all UN premises for life. Guterres even had his Security get Park East Synagogue head of security Shay Amir try to oust Inner City Press from his speech on tolerance on October 31.

  So while the outrage at the White House action on Acosta grows, as it should (the Free UN Coalition for Access opposes it, like the arrest of journalists in Cameroon), why is the UN given a free pass to rough up and ban a journalist? Is there a right or principle of free press or isn't there? It has been raised - watch this site.
