*On Tuesday, Nov. 13, The Real welcomes back guest co-host White House Correspondent, Washington Bureau Chief of American Urban Radio Networks and CNN Political Analyst April Ryan. April has a lot to say about the lawsuit filed today by CNN against the Trump administration for revoking correspondent Jim Acosta’s press credentials.

The hosts also discuss former First Lady Michelle Obama’s revealing new memoir and Serena Williams’s GQ Woman of the Year cover – is it insulting or artistic that “Woman” is in quotes?

And New York City week continues as The Real shouts out to Dolla Holla Back contestants!

April Ryan Weighs In on CNN’s Lawsuit Against The White House

April Ryan: I think CNN is doing the right thing… if you remember…

[The Real audience applauds]

April: Yes.

Jeannie Mai: Way to stand up for reporters; way to stand up for your people.

April: Yes. If you remember… Friday, the president talked about Jim Acosta and then I wasn’t even there and he brought my name into it…

Loni Love: Right.

April: Without even being there, as saying that I could have my press credentials pulled, because we ask the questions. What the White House wants to do is dictate what kind of questions we ask. They want to dictate – I say that word strategically – on the real. When you ask questions of a president, it’s about issues facing the day, or issues of the moment, and I have been under fire in that administration since I asked the question in January, “Mr. President, are you a racist?” You know? That suit covers all of us. But when the White House comes at us in the way that they came after Jim, you know, stripping his pass, and then issuing a propaganda video. That video was doctored. That video – Jim Acosta did not assault that young woman, who snatch – tried to snatch the mic from him. Jim Acosta did not assault that woman. And when the White House – not Russia, not China, but the White House – issues a propaganda video, that’s saying something. And you have to remember – the First Amendment is about Freedom of the Press.

[The Real audience applauds]

April: But! When we talk about Freedom of the Press, and stripping and possibly stripping credentials, it’s not about us it’s about you. When they oppress us. When they suppress us, they suppress you. You don’t get the information that you deserve and that you need.
