CNN Gives Acosta Hero’s Welcome After Losing WH Credentials; ‘They’re Trying to…Shut Us Down’
You would expect no less from these self-absorbed, narcissistic cretins.
Just over an hour after CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his White House credentials suspended in light of his latest act of showboating, AC360 gave him a hero’s welcome while CNN argued in a statement that “this unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy” while Acosta asserted that “they’re trying to — to shut us down.”
Host Anderson Cooper welcomed Acosta on as the two sat inside CNN’s D.C. bureau and so Acosta first gave his account of when he tried to return to the White House grounds for a live shot slated for this same program.
With a smirk of contentment on Acosta’s face, Cooper then read through tweets from The New York Times’s Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman plus Reuters’s Jeff Mason and then this sanctimonious statement from CNN:
The White House announced tonight that it has revoked the press pass of CNN’s White House chief correspondent Jim Acosta. It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today’s press conference. In an explanation, Press Secretary Sanders lied. She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened. This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support.
