CNN’s Jim Acosta Demands President Trump Stop Calling the Media By These Two Words

Maybe he will when they actually start telling the truth.

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, a man who has earned a reputation for annoying not only conservatives and Trump supporters with his abrasive style of journalism and rude behavior during press conferences, but the left also, has had about enough of the president calling the media “fake news.”

So much so, he’s demanding he and other conservatives stop using the phrase in reference to the country’s leading news networks. The reason why? He’s apparently scared that someone is going to get hurt.

The past week may have signaled a turning point in journalists fighting back against Trump’s attacks, with the White House Correspondents Association issuing a statement condemning him for praising a Montana congressman who body-slammed a reporter last year during a successful congressional campaign.

Acosta, Maggie Haberman and WHCA President Olivier Knox talked about the personal toll the words have taken during a panel Monday at CNN’s “Citizen” conference. Knox said the day after Trump referred to some news organizations as enemies of the people, his child came to him in tears and asked if he was going to prison.

Trump has been advised that his words against the media have an impact, but “he doesn’t seem to care,” said Haberman, who covered Trump as a New York real estate baron and now in the White House. A.G. Sulzberger, publisher of The New York Times, also said that he was glad Trump broke an agreement to keep a conversation the two men had off the record because it revealed publicly that he had made the same point to the president.

“All he hears is the cheering of the crowd when he gets up and says it,” Haberman said.

Acosta wonders how serious Trump actually is in his criticism, and the extent to which “fake news” is just another line delivered by a man who made “you’re fired” a signature when he hosted “The Apprentice.”

Look, there’s a legitimate reason why so many people have a deeply negative view of the mainstream media and why they believe so much of what is being reported on is “fake news.”

It’s because it is.

The mainstream media has been compromised for quite sometime, trading in their mission to be an objective force  dedicated to providing folks with all of the facts they need to make informed decisions and hold elected officials accountable.

Instead, they are only concerned these days with pushing an agenda. And when it comes to ousting Trump as president, they have been quite aggressive, often misreporting facts in an eager pursuit of finding the big scoop that will be the president’s undoing.

While folks might be throwing around the term “fake news” a bit willy-nilly, until the media becomes somewhat honorable again, folks are going to be extremely skeptical, and given the track record here, they should be.

Diplomats Speak On White House Transcript Of Ukraine Call, Say It Was ‘Substantively Correct’

Published

A pair of career diplomats who were highly involved in the crafting of U.S. policy in Ukraine have given testimony about President Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky which was transcribed and released by the White House, saying it was “substantively correct.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The transcript of the call, which is at the center of the Democrats’ impeachment investigation, shows no explicit quid pro quo between Trump and Zelensky but does show Trump pressuring Zelensky to investigate corruption allegations into 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden. Trump has said the call was “perfect” and decried the impeachment process as “the greatest political witch hunt in history.” During their public hearing on Tuesday, Jennifer Williams, a foreign service aide detailed to Vice President Mike Pence’s office, and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine specialist on the National Security Council, were both asked about the transcript by the House Intelligence Committee. “I didn’t take a word-for-word accounting. When I first saw the publicly released version, it looked substantively correct to me,” Williams said when asked whether the transcript was “complete and accurate.” “I certainly would describe it as substantively correct,” Vindman agreed, adding that it was “correct” and that he called it “very accurate” during his closed-door testimony. https://youtu.be/MEB-s2I205k Kurt Volker, who served as the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a former NSC aide, will also be giving testimony during the impeachment inquiry to be held on Tuesday. Despite saying the Trump transcript was “substantively correct,” Vindman spoke with House investigators during his private deposition and alleged the White House omitted some important words and phrases.

Dem Lawmaker Weighs In On Trump, Says, ‘I’d Like To Impeach The Bas**** Right Now’

Published

It seems that Rep. Dina Titus isn’t a big fan of President Trump, referring to him as a “bas****” during a rather incendiary speech delivered at a Democratic Party event in Las Vegas. Titus, a Nevada Democrat, was such a rousing success with her anti-Trump rhetoric that chants of “Dina! Dina!” broke out in the crowd. Here’s more from The Washington Times: “You have heard me say how many times that this is the most important election of your lifetime? Well, this time I really, really, really mean it, because it is,” the congresswoman told the crowd, according to a video promoted by the Republican National Committee. “The heart and soul of our nation is on the ballot, and it’s going to be up to you all,” she said. “That’s why our caucus is so important. It’s the first step to getting this con artist out of the White House. “You know, frankly, I think the House is going to do it, and I’d like to impeach the bastard right now,” she said, drawing a wave of cheers. Titus went on to state that the Senate would not probably impeach the president, so the Democratic Party needed to be prepared to “take him out” in November of 2020. When speaking with reporters later on in the evening, Titus stated she was “caught up in the moment” when she called Trump a “bas****.” “Well, I guess I just don’t have very much respect for this president,” Titus told a local CBS affiliate. “I don’t have respect for his moral standards. I think he doesn’t have any knowledge of history, he’s very anti-intellectual, he’s abandoned or insulted our allies, he certainly doesn’t work well with Congress. “That was just the first term that came to the top of my head,” she continued.
