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.

Published

on

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.

Mueller Drops A Nuke After BuzzFeed Says Trump Told Cohen to Lie to Congress

Thank you…Robert Mueller?!?

John Salvatore

Published

Liberal outlet BuzzFeed put out an original report claiming Donald Trump directed former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

Social media exploded because if the story is true the president would be in big trouble.

There’s no denying that.

Here’s a little taste of the report, per BuzzFeed:

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.

Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

Trump’s response:

The thing is, though, even Special Counsel Robert Mueller is saying BuzzFeed‘s story is bogus!

Here’s the deal…

In case you forgot, Mueller and his team are doing everything possible to find a connection between Trump and Russia.

They aren’t exactly fond of 45.

Therefore, Mueller smacking down the report from BuzzFeed should speak volumes to lefties.

More:

BuzzFeed is standing by their report:

WATCH:

Businessman Donald Trump was thinking about the idea of a Trump Tower in Russia in 2015, 2016-ish.

Naturally, some paired this deal (that was never made) to Trump working with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton.

Conservative rock star Mark Levin, lawyer and radio host, explains the legal consequences President Trump could be facing.

Hint: sorry liberals.

Listen:

People keep saying, ‘What are the legal implications for Trump?’ There are none. Zero. There’s no legal implication; there’s no legal jeopardy, period. Moreover, in all this so-called reporting and analysis by these phony experts, where did President Trump collude, coordinate, or conspire with the Russians during the election, to fix the result of the election? Where is this evidence? And since there’s not a scintilla of evidence, this should underscore the point that this entire investigation is bogus.

Shouldn’t [the media] be cheering over the fact that so far, all the leaks show that Trump did nothing? Shouldn’t they be celebrating that, that in our republic, the president that we chose is guilty of nothing? That he didn’t collaborate, he didn’t coordinate, he didn’t conspire with the Russians? But they’re not. They keep bringing in these phony experts, who are utterly predictable. ‘You know, uh, if I were Don Jr., I’d be worried about now’ — the country should be worried about now, about what’s taking place. The country should be worried.”

[…]

How many more damn times do I have to explain that it is the position of the United States Department of Justice that you cannot indict a sitting president? He’s not in any kind of legal jeopardy.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson explains how the FBI opened an investigation in 2017 to learn if President Trump was “secretly a Russian agent.”

You couldn’t make this up.

REPORT: Twitter Colluding with Ocasio-Cortez to Ensure Message Is More Effective

I’m sure @Jack will be QUICK to assist Republicans, too!

After years of searching, there is still absolutely zero evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

That’s not exactly a surprise to Trump supporters.

Collusion, however, seems to take place on the other side of the political aisle on a relatively frequent basis.

The latest example?

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Twitter.

Twitter is colluding with Democrats in Congress to ensure they’re using the social media platform as effectively as possible.

From USA Today:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dances outside her office, solicits Instant Pot recipes and gets into fights on Twitter. Soon you may see other Democrats taking a page from her social media playbook.

The House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee is hosting a session Thursday morning with Ocasio-Cortez of New York (@AOC – 2.42 million followers) and Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut (@jahimes – 76,500 followers) “on the most effective ways to engage constituents on Twitter and the importance of digital storytelling.” …

The decision to invite Ocasio-Cortez, a House freshman, to share her expertise signals the Democratic party’s attempt to bring in fresh voices – even when those voices don’t always agree with leadership.

Well, isn’t that swell?

People certainly need to learn more about socialist policies from a 29-year-old genius, huh??

Here’s a couple tweets from Dems who are “learning” AOC’s way…

Republican Congressman Steve Scalise (LA) was nearly murdered by deranged left-wing activist James Hodgkinson in June 2017.

If a Democrat representative had been shot in the Trump era, we’d be talking about it to this day.

Scalise sent a tweet calling out Ocasio-Cortez for wanting to raise taxes to 70%.

See it:

Alexandria responded.

Scalise sent another tweet that combined some responses from AOC’s “radical” supporters:

Her supporters showed their true colors…

https://twitter.com/randygdub/status/1081764089376849920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1081764089376849920&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fheres-how-scummy-ocasio-cortez-supporters-are%2F

There’s a lot Ocasio-Cortez still has to learn, especially about America.

Check out this message she sent, implying that she, herself, is an “American Revolutionary.”

The world the British colonists inherited was ruled by kings, hereditary aristocrats, and wealthy gentlemen. But in the year 1776, Americans decided to change that world. They would do without a king or aristocrats. They would create a new government based solely on “the people.”

But who would really count as “the people,” and how would it all work? Should wealthy and educated gentlemen still dominate the government? Should a new, representative form of government truly represent the interests and views of common men and women? How should those people participate to make their voices heard?

Reactions:

When people look back 50 years from now are they going to say George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Barack Obama, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were all crucial to America’s development over the centuries?

No.

Just two of those people will be credited, the other two forgotten.

Very few events in history should be compared to the Holocaust, right?

From Daily Caller:

New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday compared members of the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

Heck, these law-breaking migrants were caught on camera throwing rocks at cops.

https://twitter.com/WendyFry_/status/1066791682899959808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1066791682899959808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2018%2F11%2F25%2Falexandria-ocasio-cortez-migrant-holocaust%2F

Ocasio-Cortez claims “Republican commentators” are “stalking” her and “doctoring” her live streams.

Yes, Alexandria is delusional.

The only reason she’s being talked about so much is because she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

Check out this hilarious montage of Ocasio-Cortez proving she doesn’t know much:

Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.

Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.

See her tweet:
