Since Tuesday, liberal journalists on CNN and MSNBC have been teaming up with elected Democrats to shoot down the notion that their collective obsession with impeaching President Trump slowed the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The biased coverage argued the “talking point” was “dangerous” and predicted that it would not “pick up much traction.”
Naturally, CNN has been unable to resist their impulse to depart from solely informing the public about the coronavirus pandemic to insteadblame everything on President Trump as the death toll passes 4,000 Americans. One form has been refusing to carry portions of the Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing. On Wednesday, the lies and whiplash boiled over as CNN repeatedly dipped in and out of the briefing, including for an extended period of time to falsely claim that the briefing had been hijacked by an announcement on drug trafficking.
On Monday, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta stepped back in the ring for Monday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing and, as usual, he made a fool out of himself. Fortunately for our collective sanity, the ordeal lasted less than two minutes and ended with President Trump torching Fake News Jim for his “nasty, snarky question” about the President’s past statements at what was then a disturbing but evolving pandemic.
Mere moments after President Trump concluded his Wednesday Oval Office address to the nation about the extraordinary steps the administration was taking to stem the deadly coronavirus, CNN, via pompous chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, was already insisting the address was “smacking of xenophobia” and bigotry. His evidence was Trump calling the coronavirus a “foreign virus,” which was accurate.
During a press conference in New Delhi amid his India trip on Tuesday, President Trump had another run-in with CNN’s favorite liberal resistance reporter Jim Acosta. After the biased reporter hurled typically slanted questions, the President told him that he “ought to be ashamed” of having “the worst record in the history of broadcasting.”
Liberal CNN journalist Jim Acosta appeared at Point Park University on Thursday to lecture on how his truth telling “gets under your skin.” Acosta also explained his worry that the President’s comments could lead to violence against the press. According to a story in The Pitt News on Friday, “The concern I have is that if you have a situation here in the U.S. where a journalist is seriously injured or killed, we cease being the United States of America that we grew up with.”
President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday evening had several dramatic moments, including when the GOP official awarded conservative icon Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor a civilian can receive. Although the radio talk show host recently stated he has been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, CNN reporter Jim Acosta nevertheless slammed Limbaugh for “a history of making derogatory comments about African-Americans,” a comment Fox News Channel anchor Laura Ingraham hammered as “disgusting.”
Mitt Romney’s vote to convict President Donald Trump on the impeachment charge of abuse of power won him a bunch of new fans amongst the liberal press. CNN’s Jim Acosta and John Avlon swooned over the Utah Senator’s “Profile in Courage” in standing up against Trump and his fellow Republicans. This is a far cry from the treatment Romney received when he was the GOP presidential nominee looking to take down their hero Barack Obama in 2012.
Picking up from Nick Fondacaro’s item on some of CNN’s initial reactions to the Senate trial coming to an end Wednesday afternoon, the Jeffrey Zucker-led circus continued into The Situation Room. Most notably, Fake News Jim hailing Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) and seven panelists ganging up on former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) over, well, how one could act on principle and not want to remove President Trump.
Of course, hard-left CNN journalist Jim Acosta couldn’t let a touching moment in Tuesday’s State of the Union go without injecting liberal spin onto it. Regarding the President’s awarding of the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh, Acosta smeared the radio star as a racist, claiming a “history of making derogatory comments about African-Americans.” I
In the aftermath of the Iranian missile attack against two U.S. bases in Iraq Tuesday evening, it appeared as though there were no U.S. casualties (as of this post's publication) and both President Trump and Iranian officials were ready to deescalate the situation. But CNN was not having it. During an appearance on CNN Tonight, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta insisted that Trump was backed into a corner, and could do nothing but push the United States closer to a major conflict with Iran. He even suggested Trump was gambling with the lives of U.S. troops.
Criticize the media, and you’re threatening the freedoms and lives of journalists. That’s the gist of the story from New York Times media reporter Michael Grynbaum: “After Another Year of Trump Attacks, ‘Ominous Signs’ for the American Press -- Threats of ‘retribution,’ more accusations of ‘fake news’ and the end of the White House briefing made 2019 the darkest yet for journalists in the Trump era.”
