An incorrect generalization. POTUS stops to answer questions almost every day.

I'm betting the other reporters who are waiting to ask their question are a little annoyed at Acosta's antics and are happy he is out.

I disagree. I bet they're like any other group of people and will band together to defend one of their own against an outsider.

apparently, the judge just sided with CNN and Acosta and is ordering them to return Acosta's press pass.. can a judge do that?

I was surprised that a judge could order it, too.

What's to prevent the WH from telling the judge to piss off?

The WH would have to tell all reporters to piss off.
If you open the door to one, it's open to all and "rights" get involved.

Similar to a store that is open the general public where you can't discriminate despite a sign saying "we have the right to refuse service".

The judge granted a TRO, that is all. Acosta gets his pass while the case goes forward. No, the White House doesn't have to abide by that ruling (freedom of the press mean you can write/publish whatever you want, freedom of the press doesn't codify the right to access the White House). The WH will abide by the ruling, just as the Trump White House has abided by several judicial rulings when the court lacked jurisdiction over POTUS.

The judge said it was because the WH did not allow due process in the revoking of the pass.

I am surprised that there is not a statement the pass recipients need to sign acknowledging the pass may be revoke for reasons...Why is "due process" required.

It's not simliar or even close. Stop posting when you don't know what you're talking about.
