CNN’s White House Correspondent Jim Acosta made a name for himself by being obnoxious.
He is not reporting news. And he doesn’t belong in the press room.
He disrupts everyone, and takes up time from other reporters.
Finally, Acosta is suffering the consequences for his juvenile, self-centered behavior.
After laying his hand on a White House intern during Wednesday’s press conference, he should be forced to apologize. Both the President and the intern deserve to be treated in accordance with the rules of common decency.
In fact, Fake news CNN, and Acosta, should be banned from all political events.
Even CNN’s former talk show icon, Larry King, sees CNN as fake news.
In an interview with RT America on Tuesday, King mocked his former network. In his commentary, King said his past employer “stopped doing news a long time ago.”
The media landscape of the 1960s completely shifted to focus primarily on covering President Donald Trump.
“The internet and cable news. Could you imagine cable news in Watergate? And they don’t do news anymore. In fact, RT is one of the few channels doing news. RT does news. CNN stopped doing news a long time ago. They do Trump. Fox is Trump TV and MSNBC is anti-Trump all the time,” he said. “You don’t see a story — there was vicious winds and storms in the Northeast the other day – not covered on any of the three cable networks, not covered. Not covered!
“So when CNN started covering Trump — they were the first — they covered every speech he made and then they made Trump the story. So, Trump is the story in America. I would bet that ninety-eight percent of all Americans mention his name at least once a day.”
The Great Divider?
King blamed the president for polarizing the media against him and claims Trump wants to be a dictator.
“I know Donald, 40 years — I know the good side of Donald and I know the bad side of Donald — I think he would like to be a dictator. I think he would love to be able to just run things. So, he causes a lot of this,” he said. “Then his fight with the media and fake news. I’ve been in the media a long time, like you — longer than you, Rick. And at all my years at CNN, in my years at Mutual Radio, I have never seen a conversation where a producer said to a host ‘pitch the story this way. Angle it that way. Don’t tell the truth.’ Never saw it. Never saw it.”
Ok, we get it. Larry King sees the truth of the Fake News, but a dictator? Come on. Trump isn’t trying to dictate. He’s trying to restore greatness. And that’s something completely different.
This man gets up everyday and goes to work at a job people hate him for doing.
And he doesn’t even collect a paycheck. He spends the entire day putting out fires. But King is right about one thing. CNN screwed the pooch on this one.
“During the 2016 presidential election, CNN gave Trump more airtime than the other GOP candidates. As they thought he would lose and hurt the GOP, but their strategy backfired.”
“I guess it’s to their regret. But, they covered him as a character. They carried every speech he made. They carried him more than Fox News, at the beginning,” he said. “And so they built the whole thing up and the Republicans had a lot of candidates and they all had weaknesses. When I saw Senator Cruz hug Donald Trump the other day I said, ‘this is what America has become… Cruz’s father helped kill Kennedy.”
