CNN received their wish on Tuesday that the White House press briefing would allow cameras, but it wasn’t enough as senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta and media reporter Dylan Byers melted like liberal snowflakes over Breitbart receiving a question and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slamming the media’s thrist for destroying President Trump.
At Monday’s audio-only and photos-only White House press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta continued to make a fool out of himself, melting down and screaming at press secretary Sean Spicer over the current set-up for briefings. Acosta first interrupted after a female reporter didn’t get her question answered. When he yelled at Spicer to answer her question, Spicer lobbed some A+ shade at Acosta: “There's no camera on, Jim.”
On Monday afternoon, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta became absolutely unglued, expressing deep anger and horror at the Trump White House following the White House daily briefing that was conducted without audio or video to show viewers on orders from the White House.
During the Friday White House daily press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta berated EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt on behalf of planet Earth: “Why, then, is the arctic shelf melting?

CNN’s Jim Acosta has become a prominent media figure thanks to the presidential campaign and is frequently blogged on NewsBusters.

Journalists on CNN, Thursday, made no effort to disguise the disdain and rage they hold for the White House. Anchor Don Lemon compared Sean Spicer to the Adam Sandler movie Billy Madison. After playing an extended clip of March 16 press conference, Lemon mocked Spicer: “Did anyone see Billy Madison? The game show scene? ‘Everyone in this room is dumber for having listened to that.’ I hope that you're not dumber and I hope we're providing information.”
Before White House press secretary Sean Spicer threw down with reporters over President Trump’s wiretap claims on Thursday, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney faced left-leaning questions on the President’s budget that included fears people will “suffer” as a result of the conservative proposals.
Another day, another liberal journalist scolding White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. This time, ABC News's Jonathan Karl and CNN's Jim Acosta sparred with Spicer over wiretapping and press bias. The Trump aide accused Karl of "mischaracterizing" and chided Acosta for "cherry picking" the conclusion reached by the Senate and House Intelligence Committees that former President Barack Obama did not order a wiretap of Trump Tower during the 2016 election.
Amidst the snow on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer held a daily briefing and he tussled with CNN’s Jim Acosta after Acosta defended ObamaCare and wondered if President Trump is “okay with that there are going to be millions of people who aren’t going to have coverage.”

On Sunday’s series premiere of ABC’s Time After Time, Dr. John Stevenson aka Jack the Ripper (Josh Bowman) was finally caught in 2017 by friend H.G. Wells (Freddie Stroma) after stealing Wells’s time machine from 1893. When they met at a New York City bar, however, Stevenson boasted about the accessibility of guns in 2017 and how he’s “an amateur” compared to the 21st century’s violent criminals.
