Media personality Jim Acosta insults his channel right out of a prime interview
We’ve been covering self-serving glory hound and CNN media personality Jim Acosta’s blatantly partisan embrace of the anti-Trump #Resistance Acosta is what happens when regressive leftist “journalists” become so enraptured with themselves that they forget all about the basic tenets of journalism and embrace reality tv status as a sort of birthright.
All the world’s Acosta’s stage, but Acosta’s abrasiveness seems to have alienated the White House, from the president to the press secretary to the National Security Adviser. In fact, NSA head John Bolton’s scheduled appearance on CNN was cancelled.
CNN host Jake Tapper said Saturday that the White House canceled national security adviser John Bolton’s appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” after President Trump’s tense exchange with a network correspondent at a Friday press conference.
Tapper tweeted that Bolton was scheduled to appear on the Sunday show and “remains fully prepared to do the interview but the White House has canceled it.”
Tapper cited Trump’s refusal to take a question from CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a press conference in London on Friday. He called the network “fake news” at the time.
Actually a @CNN reporter disrespected @POTUS & PM May during their press conf. Instead of rewarding bad behavior, we decided to reprioritize the TV appearances for administration officials. https://t.co/58LaJH6WaD

Ultimately, the president has dismissed CNN as #FakeNews yet again. Acosta will likely recover, but he and CNN may well part ways. After all, what’s stopping CNN from discovering that its boorish media personality schtick is tiresome to everyone . . . except Acosta?DONATE
