    Media companies join CNN supporting Acosta; judge to rule Thursday

    The Department of Justice claimed Wednesday that "the President and his staff have absolute discretion over which journalists they grant interviews to, as well as over which journalists they acknowledge at press events.

No journalist has a First Amendment right to enter the White House." Dozens of media companies filed legal briefs Wednesday saying if CNN loses its lawsuits all journalists may be at risk if they cross the president.

    During this much-hyped midterm election, the curious voter might (or might not) want to check out which candidates his or her local newspaper recommends.
