CNN journalists suffered a full-on meltdown during Thursday’s White House press briefing, screaming, waving their hands and offering repeated outbursts of emotion. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee dismissed CNN analyst Brian Karem and zinged journalist Jim Acosta, telling him: “I know it's hard for you to understand even short sentences.”
When President Donald Trump spoke to Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the phone recently he jokingly told him that "Didn't you guys burn down the White House during the War of 1812?" This triggered CNN's Jim Acosta to tweet a "correction" on Wednesday.The problem is Acosta's correction was wrong as even the liberal New Republic pointed out shortly afterwards.
From Roseanne Barr’s firing to the President condemning MS-13, liberal journalists found new ways to tarnish Donald Trump and his supporters as racist this past month. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used the Roseanne Barr controversy to condemn Trump voters as he deemed her racist reference to former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett “represented the actual worldview of a significant chunk of the Trump base.” The New York Times’ Michael Eric Dyson trashed that “bigot-in-chief” Trump had “unleashed” America’s racism. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities.
Yikes, Jim Acosta. When The Daily Show is mocking you alongside the President, it’s safe to say that you’re having a rough time in the credibility department. Thursday night on Comedy Central, Daily Show host Trevor Noah was exasperated that CNN’s chief White House correspondent lashed out at reality show celebrity Kim Kardashian West for meeting with President Trump to talk criminal justice reform and pardoning a jailed great-grandmother.
Figures for the May ratings period show that CNN's primetime audience shrank by 25 percent from May 2017. So it seems that obsessing over Stormy Daniels, having over 147 interviews with her lawyer, constantly going after President Donald Trump as an idiot and a racist, highlighting Jim Acosta's loutish behavior, giving an open mic to gun-controllers, and siding with Hamas terrorists attacking Israeli soldiers — only a few items from a much longer list — is not a winning formula. Imagine that.
If one person on CNN personifies the idea that the cable network has become an opinion network and not a news outlet, it’s Jim Acosta. The CNN Chief White House correspondent regularly appears for what amounts to an on-air commentary. On Wednesday, he whined about Donald Trump calling out some of the nasty comments from ABC: “Sometimes there are not more important things than the President's grudges that he feels he has to nurse on a daily basis.”
CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta found himself largely on the sidelines during his network’s Friday afternoon coverage of the horrifying high school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas. But when he was given a chance to swoop in, he lamented the lack of support from President Trump for “any kind of substantial gun-control measures.” Of course, Acosta failed to provide any evidence for how passing gun confiscation or control measures would put an end to school shootings like those in Texas and Parkland, FL.
CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta has suggested President Trump is a “racist,” while whining that Trump’s complaints about press bias were doing “real damage to the First Amendment,” speculating that some day we might see “a dead journalist on the side of the highway, because of the rhetoric coming out of the White House.” Then on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Acosta said this about his Trump coverage: “Listen, when I covered Barack Obama, I was just as tough on him. People might not believe that.” Let’s investigate.
During a fawning interview with CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta on Wednesday night, aired early Thursday morning, ABC’s left-wing late night host Jimmy Kimmel repeatedly heaped praise on the reporter for his notorious hostility toward the Trump administration.
Curtis Houck ably locked it down yesterday on how absurd it was for CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta to claim he was taken out of context when he said "people around the country" don't understand Donald Trump calling the media (especially CNN) "Fake News" is an "act." Try not to miss the official CNN Media Unit doubling down with Acosta, claiming Fox is taking Acosta out of context. No, it's CNN that is denying the context. He said "people around the country" -- not potentially violent people -- don't understand Trump's "act."
Behold the latest reminder that, for CNN, everything is about them. Wednesday’s White House press briefing saw another throw down between Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders telling off CNN’s supercilious White House correspondent Jim Acosta over claims the Trump administration has been suppressing reporters.
On Wednesday morning, CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta cried foul in a tweet concerning a Variety interview released Tuesday in which he insulted the intelligence of the American people by claiming that “[t]hey don’t have all their faculties in some cases” when it comes to the rise of fake news and rhetoric from the President or his advisers about the liberal media.
