Moments after President Trump’s Wednesday press conference before a hostile press itching for his impeachment, CNN’s The Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer and chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta preyed on the fact that most people had not read the transcript of the phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine and blatantly lied about the “favor” Trump asked for.
While most of Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ two-year tenure as President Trump’s press secretary led to many clashes with the media, her replacement -- Stephanie Grisham -- is continuing some of those traditions, including no daily briefings on a regular basis. Grisham made the announcement while a guest on the Fox & Friends morning program on Monday, when she accused reporters of turning the event into political “theater” during their attempts to “get famous.”
After shouting at President Donald Trump on Monday because he didn’t get to ask a question at his G-7 press conference, the ever-petulant CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta instead pontificated on At This Hour, knocking Trump’s intelligence by ruling he’s “like a cat chasing a laser pointer, you know, when it comes to trying to get the President to answer a direct question.”
Less than a day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was subjected to death threats from protesters outside his home and threatening Twitter hashtags (#MassacreMoscowMitch and #MassacreMitch), two CNN shows downplayed the protesters and one also featured 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio expressing support for one of the hashtags.
Following up on Friday’s item showing the best (or worst, depending on your word choice) quotes from narcissistic Looney TuneJim Acosta’s book The Enemy of the People, NewsBusters decided it was worth sharing two specific anecdotes that could stand on their own with one pertaining to the press corps in 2016 and the other about Fox News Channel’s John Roberts.
CNN chief White House correspondent and cartoonishly self-centered Jim Acosta released on Tuesday his 353-page work of narcissism, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America.

Publishers Weekly magazine has a new interview with CNN's Jim Acosta under the headline "Speaking Truth to Power: PW talks to Jim Acosta." Will Boisvert was a tougher interviewer than Acosta's colleague Brian Stelter, but that's not saying much. The last question and answer was a hoot. Asked about media bias, Acosta claimed "I have never witnessed a concerted effort by any news organization to take a stand one way or the other on a political issue, to damage one particular party or help another."
The liberal media are certainly not “the enemy of the people”, as President Trump often suggests, but they do operate as though they’re part of an opposition party in how viciously they cover him. Now, during a vomit inducing interview with his CNN colleague Brian Stelter to promote his new book The Enemy of the People, CNN chief White House correspondent and showboater Jim Acosta said he regretted how the media wasn’t more hostile against the President.
Far-left CNN journalist Jim Acosta couldn’t help but taking some shots at Donald Trump as he reported live from Normany on the 75th anniversary of D-Day. During live coverage of the President’s speech honoring those who fought on the beaches, Acosta detoured: “Now, one thing we should point out, one of the reasons why President Trump was delayed, one of the reasons why he was late getting here, he was sitting down with a Fox News personality before his speech began.”
CNN White House shouter Jim Acosta has a new book coming out on June 11, and The Guardian took an early peek. The headline was blunt: "'The president's insane’: book by CNN's Jim Acosta charts Trump war on press." The book's title is also blunt: The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America. The book summary tells us "Acosta is tenacious and unyielding in his public battle to preserve the First Amendment and #RealNews."
CNN claims to be "Facts First," but showboat White House correspondent Jim Acosta mangled President Trump's statement on asylum claims on Thursday. During the speech, Acosta tweeted: "Trump in Rose Garden speech paints asylum seekers with broad brush accusing them of misleading immigration authorities at border: 'These are frivolous claims.'" That's not accurate.
All set with his hair sloshed to one side (presumably by the wind), CNN chief White House correspondent and carnival barking extraordinary Jim Acosta reported on Wednesday’s Situation Room ahead of a Trump rally that the President has plunged America “toward a constitutional crisis” while solidifying a reputation as a con-man, turning “the art of the deal...into the art of the conceal.”
