The temperament of the mainstream media is undoubtedly a worrisome bit of American politics in this day and age.
We have seen nothing less than pure, unadulterated scandal-capitalism at play with these media miscreants over the course of the last two years. CNN and others have long been pushing the idea of a “New Civil War” – a devastating and horrific wish being made simply because it will vastly improve the failing ratings all over the corporately-controlled world of cable “news”.
One of the most egregious characters in this mess has been Jim Acosta of CNN.
Acosta’s antics from within the White House have created a reputation for the liberal journalist as a man hellbent on making a name for himself alongside President Trump’s. In many ways, it feels as though Acosta may be betting his entire career on this tactic.
Now, as he continues to face pressure from the American people over his behavior, Acosta has snapped.
CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta does not like to be teased, not even a little bit.
On Thursday, a former White House official mildly teased the left-wing provocateur in a tweet which led to Acosta snapping back in a private message, telling the former official: “F**k you.”
The latest emotional outburst from Acosta came after he complained about the music being too loud at President Donald Trump’s rally in Montana.
Justin Caporale, a former official for First Lady Melania Trump, teased Acosta in a tweet that said, “Dear Diary,” a term that is commonly used on Twitter to tease Acosta over his tweets since they usually sound like whining.
Acosta then responded via direct message.
IM SORRY. WHATTTT?????

In this day and age of mounting political violence and vitriol, Acosta’s incredibly shallow and pedantic escalation of the situation is appalling and abhorrent. If he is allowed to continue his work with CNN, there will certainly be an uproar from the disenfranchised right wing, for whom the rules of civility and consequence still matter.
