Dearest readers, spare a thought for the folks at CNN because, as Thursday wore on, they’re having a difficult time accepting reality of no collusion and no charges on obstruction of justice following the release of the Mueller report. Between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern, CNN Newsroom was filed with media statements divorced from reality.
CNN’s most obnoxious White House correspondent is about to get rewarded again from his peers for his unprofessional behavior. According to a press release on April 12, the New York Press Club will give Jim Acosta their “Truth to Power” journalism award.
Four White House correspondents flew out to Las Vegas for this past week’s 2019 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show and, as is usually the case with such public events, journalists offer revealing takes that are both good and bad. Most notably, they condemned the President’s rhetoric toward the media, suggesting it places their lives in “serious danger.”
CNN's Jim Acosta interviewed Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, focusing on his efforts to secure disaster relief for the island in the wake of Hurricane Maria. During the interview, Acosta could not resist asking Rossello a leading question; namely if he thought he was “dealing with a bully” in President Trump. Rossello took the bait, warning that “if the bully gets close, I’ll punch the bully in the mouth.”
The Media Research Center would like your assistance in helping those suffering from Collusion Delusion Syndrome (CDS). Many journalists are baffled, sad, and bewildered after the Mueller report failed to find collusion or obstruction by Donald Trump. In a special video, MRC President Brent Bozell explained, “The Media Research Center, with your help, is sending a special care package to every member of the news media and on Capitol Hill suffering from CDS.”
The Sunday afternoon letter from Attorney General Bill Barr on the Mueller report has rocked the political world and burst more than a few bubbles in the liberal media, most notably their years-long insistence that the President and/or his team colluded with Russia. Some journalists have conceded this reality, while others are mimicking Japanese soldiers still fighting World War II in 1971.
In the past few weeks we’ve seen the media get excited for Beto O’Rourke while also blaming Donald Trump for the actions of a crazed shooter. Vanity Fair sent Joe Hagan to pen a cover story on Beto that left the writer giddy about a “gleam in his eye” as the “too innocent to be a politician” began his presidential campaign. Conversely, journalists raged at Donald Trump’s reaction to the shooting in New Zealand, a tragedy they all but blamed Trump for. CNN host John Berman indicted Trump for using the same “language” of the killer. The following are just a few of the worst moments of media outrage from the last month.
Following the President's joint press conference Tuesday afternoon with his Brazilian counterpart, CNN chief White House correspondent and carnival barker Jim Acosta offered a lengthy diatribe and meltdown to the delight of his colleagues. In four-and-a-half minutes, Acosta attacked the Daily Caller for a “softball” question to the President, bashed Trump for spreading a “virus” around the world that the media has a liberal bias, and even suggested conservatives have a bigger media and social media influence than liberals.
In light of President Trump’s weekend of tweeting about seemingly everything (and no further tweets about New Zealand since Friday afternoon), CNN returned to one of its favorite storylines with an assist from George Conway, which is that the President isn’t a stable person and might have a mental illness that makes him unworthy of the presidency. CNN Right Now was one such show and featured host Brianna Keilar and chief White House correspondent and armchair psychiatrist Jim Acosta.
After what must have been an insanely painful 42 days for the White House press corps, Monday afternoon featured a White House press briefing and, needless to say, carnival barker, CNN chief White House correspondent, and infamous newsman Jim Acosta made sure to make this briefing count. Acosta used his allotted two minutes as best he could, tussling with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders over the Democratic Party’s issues with Jewish people and the President’s rhetoric as a source of what ills America.
An hour after he trumpeted Thursday’s abrupt end of the second U.S.-North Korea summit, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta appeared in need of a safe space following President Trump’s Hanoi press conference. Acosta wasn’t called on, so he aired his grievances on CNN while falsely suggesting the President had “steered clear largely” of the White House press corps.
Early Thursday morning in the United States, CNN gloated about the abrupt end of the Hanoi, Vietnam summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un with a potpourri of liberal bloviating. Such hot takes ranged from taunting Trump as a failure on North Korea, not understanding that the presidency isn’t like The Apprentice, suggested the Michael Cohen hearing hurt talks, and wondered how much longer Trump will be in office.
