The White House decision to suspend the access of CNN journalist Jim Acosta is regrettable and should be reviewed, the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, Harlem Désir tweeted.
Revoking of press pass of @CNN's Jim @Acosta by @WhiteHouse is regrettable. Journalists must be allowed to ask probing questions and hold leaders to account. Call for it to be reversed and not to call journalists enemy of the people. #USA— OSCE media freedom (@OSCE_RFoM) November 8, 2018
