    Jim Acosta Accidentally Admits CNN 'Sucks' in Pathetic Comeback Attempt

    CNN’s Jim Acosta is supposed to be a professional journalist, and that’s what makes his botched comeback — where he accidentally agreed with his critics — so gloriously satisfying.
    Now, don’t get tripped up on the word “professional” because you’ve watched him heckle and hector White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany with stupid questions one too many times.
    Acosta may be in the habit of engaging in self-aggrandizing confrontations rather than actual journalism, but he is the network’s chief White House correspondent and should have known better.
    In a live report from the President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Sanford, Florida, on Monday, a masked Acosta was prattling on about how dire the president’s re-election prospects are, even while a massive crowd was gathered behind him in anticipation of Trump’s arrival.

    “But Iowa and North Carolina are really states that should be in the bag for President Trump right now,” Acosta told “The Situation Room” host Wolf Blitzer.
    “That’s an indication as to how much trouble he’s in politically right now, Wolf,” Acosta said straight-faced in front of the large, enthusiastic crowd. (He seemed to be serious, but it’s hard to tell from behind the huge, clunky mask strapped to his face — can’t this network get sleeker masks?)

    As the din of the crowd grew with increasing chants of “CNN sucks,” Acosta tried to think on his feet and get cute, but deliciously failed right into a telling admission.
    “And as this crowd is chanting that there are members of the press here who suck, I should also point out, Wolf — what also sucks? Getting the coronavirus,” Acosta said Monday.

    So if the virus “also” sucks, then the crowd was right about CNN? No argument here.
    The president’s son, Donald Trump, Jr., ran with Acosta’s assessment and tweeted the clip with the caption, “Fact check: True.”

    Acosta might have had more luck with the “I’m rubber, you’re glue…” defense instead, but he apparently thought coronavirus was the kill shot because the left sees the pandemic as Trump’s political Achilles heel.
    To that end, Acosta tweeted photos to shame all of the naked faces he spied at the rally, and more than one Twitter user replied with a photo of a mask-less Acosta in the thick of the crowd.


    By now, the jig is up and everyone has caught on to CNN and its ilk for their left-wing bias, which is why those chants have been a regular feature at Trump events for years.
    The left is nervous because Trump’s supporters continue to come out by the thousands for their candidate while his 2020 presidential challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, counts his attendees by the dozen (if even that many).

    Despite Acosta’s finger-wagging and sniping at the crowd, the rally Monday — Trump’s first since his own coronavirus diagnoses — was a success to the people who really matter: His supporters.
    “I feel so powerful,” Trump told the crowd, according to the Orlando Sentinel, joking about his rebound from the virus.
    “I’ll walk in there and kiss everyone in the audience. I’ll kiss the guys; I’ll kiss the beautiful women.”
    If nothing else, it turns out Acosta’s comment was actually a good thing for CNN.
    You see, for all the fake news Acosta and his network churn out on a daily basis, they finally covered one story accurately: Coronavirus sucks, and so does CNN.

    The BBC an anti Trump organization funded by the Brits has decided to put up amonst others a video explaining how Americans can spot fake news,
    US election 2020: How to spot disinformation - BBC News - YouTube

    It would seem the media in English speaking countries is going mad to try to prevent Trump 2020

    I might have posted this somewhere else but since I hate the BBC this thread seemed most appropiate.
    When you think you have made a procedure idiot proof your company employs a better idiot.

    It may be true that some of the MSM news sources lean either a little left or right, but the sources you constantly quote are mostly far right conspiracy theory generators.

    I did away with by FB and Twitter accounts. I've had enough.

    I don't know what pisses me off more....the fact that the media is extremely biased or that liberals try to tell me that they're not.
