And I voted yes because where is the fun if not? If I watch, I want to see conflict and fireworks. Otherwise, just boring.

I'm somewhere in the middle, but I lean towards yes. But serious question: Is it not possible to just not call on him for questions? Not sure how much he interferes with other reporters' questions, but I'd imagine his antics would be down to a minimum if he never gets called on.

I've seen a fair bit of press conferences where he appears to remain silent while others are asking their questions/getting answers. But I've also seen the few where he's overly difficult, and from what I recall, it's because they gave him the time of day to ask the question to begin with.

I cannot stand the guy and his only agenda is get publicity for himself and to cause havoc. That being said, I voted yes because it is part of Freedom of Speech and a president shouldn't take that right away.

That's because most naturalized Canadians and Europeans are Socialists and dont represent the US, it skews the results.

He's an embarrassment. No one should be that rude and impolite. Americans are already viewed as bred from a crude culture...he's the poster child exemplifying Americans with no manners.

Even though Acosta is a jerkoff and a grandstander, we should not be barring people from news conferences.

I voted no. There's a very limited number of seats, and I'd rather give one of them to one of the newer media voices instead of yet another of the predictable MSM clowns. You really only need one MSM representative, 'cause they're all going to write the same thing anyway.

The person any news organization assigns as their White House correspondent represents the best their organization has on staff. Acoster is an embarrassment; and further lowers the perception of CNN. For that reason, I don't think CNN should allow Acoster.

Why even have one MSM rep there, since they already wrote their stories before the press conference even started?

As for my vote, put me down for voting "present" in the tally.....
