James Acosta, one of CNN’s resident bloviating adolescents, stomped out of a press conference after getting bitch-slapped by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, and now he’s on a crying jag after patriots chanted “CNN sucks” at a Trump rally in Tampa, Florida:
Wednesday, on HLN’s “S.E. Cupp Unfiltered,” CNN Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta said being shouted at by Trump supporters at a rally in Tampa, Florida, last night, “felt like we weren’t in America anymore.”
Acosta said, “I mean, honestly, it felt like we weren’t in America anymore. I don’t know how to put it any more plainly than that. Americans should not be treating their fellow Americans in this way. But unfortunately, what we’ve seen—and this has been building for some time since the campaign—I’ve been talking about this as an issue since the campaign. When the president, during the campaign, referred to us as the dishonest media, the disgusting news media, liars, scum, and thieves, and so on, and then he rolled that right into the Oval Office, and started calling us the fake news and the enemy of the people, he is whipping these crowds up into a frenzy, to the point where they really want to come after us.”
He continued, “And my sense of it, S.E., is that these opinions that these folks have at these rallies, they’re shaped by what they see in the primetime hours of Fox News and what they hear from some conservative news outlets that just sort of give them this daily diet of what they consider to be terrible things that we do over here at CNN. It’s very unfortunate, but it’s a pitting of American against American and honestly, it needs to stop.”
He added, “I think it’s been dangerous for some time. I was worried during the campaign that a journalist was going to get hurt, and it has been building. But when you refer to members of the press as the enemy of the people, you’re essentially putting targets on our backs and it’s not just some Joe Schmo on a barstool in Kalamazoo saying this. This is the president of the United States. And that comes with a serious force behind it. And he has a lot of people out there who are extremely angry at us.”
‘Hurt’? The lunatic fringe of the Dem party and liberal media produces wackjobs like James Hodgkinson. We The People have come to see the press for what it is: a cesspool of tabloid smears and a fake news factory. The thin-skinned liberal press is finally getting a taste of its own belligerence. Their putrid self-righteous indignation is rife with hubris and the attitude that they are the sole purveyor if what’s good for the masses. Some actually admit their bias and don’t care. They spew bile and venom at President Trump, Republicans, conservatives, and Trump voters on a daily basis. Now, they throw tantrums over Trump’s assertive counter attacks on their rancid hate.
They have a lot of gall giving lectures on freedom of speech. The First Amendment is not exclusive to their brand of propaganda.
The ‘Fourth Estate’ has mutated into the Fifth Column.
All pretense of media “objectivity” went down the toilet during the Obama regime.
The Cult of the Black Jesus Obama was in full swing for Obama’s presidential campaigns. An infatuated male CNN correspondent wrote love letters to Obama and kept an archive. Evan Thomas deified him. Brian Williams usually brought knee pads for Obama interviews. Chris Matthews got ‘a thrill going up his leg’ every time he heard Obama speak. Curtis Sittenfeld, ( a female by the way) loves, loves, loves Obamessiah so much, she’d suck his dick if she had the chance. It’s some of the most disturbing, perverted behavior ever displayed by leftwing media.
Obama and his media tools were infuriated that Fox News was the one holdout; the one network they couldn’t control or get to cooperate with the Party Line.
Once Donald Trump was elected the mainstream liberal media, Dem politicians, and the leftie moonbats at large, are foaming at the mouth with some of the worst animus ever recorded.
Jeff Zucker, the head propaganda honcho at CNN, takes a swing at Trump and hits his own network in the chops.
Our perception of CNN and the rest of the liberal media is that you suck. Your reporting is guided by a politically motivated agenda, which you don’t bother to hide. You just keep presenting it as ‘news’ and ‘facts’. The adversarial relationship with President Trump started the day he announced his candidacy. Your mistake was thinking he (or we) would put up with it.
You have zero credibility.
