There is seemingly little that Jim Acosta won’t do for attention.
The CNN White House correspondent has been using the Trump presidency as a catapult for his career, finding increasingly egregious ways to agitate the President. These outbursts, incidents, and accusations have been a staple of his network’s programming for some time because, let’s face it, conflict breeds ratings.
Now Acosta is turning his ire toward fellow
newsmen television entertainers, in a raucous and childish call to arms.
Host Hugh Hewitt noted Acosta wrote in his recent book, “Enemy of the People,” that Fox News acts as “propagandists” for President Donald Trump.
Acosta said he stands by his remarks, saying network hosts like Carlson and Hannity are “fixated on the conspiracy theories” spread by the president. He also likened Fox News to Cuban state television.
Then came Acosta’s most ridiculous remark on the subject.
He later added, “The likes of Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, they’re willing to go off on me on their shows, but they’re not willing to have me on in person to defend myself. What’s with that? You know, if you’re so darn tough, why don’t you give me an invitation to come on your show? What I’ve found over the last few days is that they’re not willing to do that. They’re willing to shoot spitballs from the sidelines like the class clown, but they’re not willing to meet me out on the schoolyard. And that’s on them.”
Acosta’s antics may be costing CNN, however, as the network’s ratings continue to dip into historically poor territory.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
