“Fox News supports CNN in its legitimate effort to regain its White House reporters press release,” said Wallace. “We intend to put an amicus card with the US District Court.”

After the initial statement came out, CBS said it intends to submit a card “in support of CNN’s trial to defend its constitutional rights”.

CNN’s target was filed Tuesday morning at the US District Court in Washington, DC. It is scheduled to be scheduled at 3:30 pm Wednesday.
