Reporter who engaged in alleged disrespectful behavior with former official loses White House access for a few days

Washington Post:
A reporter says the White House suspended his credentials, calling it an ‘attempt to stifle the free press’

Brian Karem, who covers the White House for Playboy, says he was told he was suspended for 30 days for a Rose Garden confrontation with former administration official Sebastian Gorka.
I disagree with Karem.  I think what the White Hosue expects is the media to treat those in the White House with respect whether they are a guest or work there.  From what I read of the confrontation Karem failed that standard.  There seems to be an element in the media that believes because they have a political disagreement with the Trump administration they are permitted to be a jerk.
