New York (CNN Business) Reporters from many news organizations have expressed support for CNN's Jim Acosta after the White House revoked his press pass. The "hard pass," which speeds up entry to the White House grounds, was suspended by the Trump administration on Wednesday night "until further notice." It also remains to be seen whether White House reporters will walk out, or show solidarity with Acosta and CNN in other ways. Within minutes, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had announced the suspension. "I do think they are trying to shut us down, to some extent, inside the White House press corps."
