As we told you last night, Playboy reporter and CNN analyst Brian Karem had his White House press credentials suspended for 30 days, and they do plan to appeal:
Suspension of credentialed press by the government is incredibly concerning. We are working with our lawyers to appeal the decision to suspend @briankarem. Since 1953, Playboy has fought to protect First Amendment rights, and the fight must continue today.

Meanwhile, Karem believes that Gorka should have been the one to lose White House access:

Gorka responded to Karem’s tweet about losing his White House credentials for a month this way:
Don’t be a punk and you may get it back.

We’re not sure what Karem thinks he was doing that day, but “journalism” doesn’t come to mind.
