Who is Sherrill v Brown or (Sherrill vs Brown as in case law)? I asked Google, but even Google doesn't known.
Beg pardon, Sherrill v Knight.

https://m.openjurist.org/569/f2d/124/sherrill-v-h-knight

In 1966, plaintiff-appellee Robert Sherrill, who has been the Washington Correspondent for The Nation since 1965 and who has throughout this period had credentials for the House and Senate press galleries, applied for and was denied a White House press pass.1 The denial resulted solely from the determination of the Secret Service, after investigating Mr. Sherrill, that he not be issued the pass. A memorandum from the Secret Service to then White House Press Secretary Moyers requested that the background information obtained about Mr. Sherrill upon which this determination was based "not be disclosed to Mr. Sherrill or his employer."2

Did this guy also behave like a child throwing a tantrum and prevented the other journalist form asking their questions like Acosta with his super first amendment rights that bulldoze those of everyone else?

You mean did he try to hold the president accountable to answer difficult questions that he clearly didn't want to answer? I think he probably did. That's the job of the press.

No. The press doesn't have the authority to hold anyone accountable for anything. They get to ask questions(difficult or not)and report on it. If Trump gives a BS answer, he gives a BS answer, then the next guy in line gets his turn to ask a question.

The job of the press is simply to report the news nothing more, nothing less. You don't understand what the press is ment to do that's probably why you don't understand what Acosta did wrong.

Doesn't really matter what you think to be honest, CNN will win the suit. Not that it will matter, the damage has already been done by the WH's frontal assault on the press.

Furthermore a lawsuit is needed to protect other journalists whom the WH might deem too uncivil and attempt to strip access. It's an important precedent.
Absolutely. A precedent needs to be set that the antics of fake journalists from fake news organizations will not be tolerated. And snowflakes need to get it in their heads that pure tolerance is just plain evil. Get wise snowflakes, drop the tolerance

You guys are still discussing Acosta? What fail. He was a disrespectful *******. CNN still has a number of other reporters with passes. Move on already.

Actually that is the job of the house of representatives and the senate, and if needs be the courts.

Did you support Julius Malema when he chased out a journalist for asking too many questions?

I don't believe they will, they still have loads of reporters with passes... as for him 'winning', he may get his pass back on some procedure or something that wasn't followed, but nothing to do with 'rights' or 'ban'(although will be spun that way). My understanding on this is his 'hard pass' was revoked... that does not mean 'ban', although msm may be spinning it as 'banned', he can still get in on day passes(which cnn 'forget' to mention)... ie, he just can't walk in willy nilly like he used to, has to apply daily, he can still get access, just an inconvience to him to be doing it daily.
As said before, this is just an entitled snowflake being an entitled snowflake... and cnn will back, support and milk it for all the free advertising it can get... ratings ratings ratings

Yes, even though it's not the same thing. The EFF can invite who ever they want to their press breafings. I'm sure we don't have any law saying that all journalist so be given an eqaul amount of attention. That isn't what freedom of the press is.

So as was argued by many, the Caravan was essentially manufactured outrage by the Republicans as an electioneering tactic.

The caravan is still moving slowly North, yet the outrage from Fox, POTUS and Republicans has died completely.

Blows the hole in the Soros conspiracy theories and other such rubbish.

Fox News spent more than 33 hours discussing the caravan through Election Day, according to a study by Media Matters, a progressive media watchdog organization. On Nov. 7, the day after the election, Fox had no discussions centered on the caravan. On Nov. 8, the network spent four minutes and 57 seconds on discussions centered on the caravan, according to the study.

You are contradicting yourself.
1 caravan still moving north
2 manufactured outrage.

Pick one you can't have both

Outrage that the caravan was a major risk to the USA. If POTUS, Fox news and so on were concerned about that risk, why did they stop talking about that risk after the election?

Nothing has changed. The caravan is still on its way to the USA.

You don't understand the difference of manufactured outrage versus legitimate outrage do you?

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Calling for an “immediate end” to the recount in Florida, Donald J. Trump warned on Monday that it could set a dangerous precedent of the person with the most votes winning.
Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said that those in favor of the recount had a “sick obsession with finding out which candidate got the most votes.”
“Democrats are going on and on about counting every last vote until they find out who got the most,” Trump said. “Since when does getting the most votes mean you win?”
Trump said that, if the recounts are allowed to proceed, “We could be looking at a very bad, very sad situation where to be considered legitimately elected you have to get more votes than the other candidate.”
Having just returned from the Armistice commemoration in Paris, Trump said that Florida’s recount has made America “the laughingstock of the world,” adding, “Putin told me they never do recounts in Russia.”
