CNN continues its disgraceful attacks against Donald Trump.
One of the network’s most dishonest and obnoxious personalities is White House reporter Jim Acosta.
Now Acosta got caught telling one ridiculous lie that just destroyed CNN.
Recently, on CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin’s show, Jim Acosta went on an insane rant against Donald Trump and conservatives in general.
Acosta said Trump was spreading antipathy toward the press like a “virus.”
He also said conservatives aren’t being discriminated against on social media.

Everything Acosta said is a lie.
First, the mainstream media have destroyed their own credibility.
A June 2018 Gallup poll showed that 62% of Americans believe the media are biased, and 44% believe the media are inaccurate, hence “fake news.”
Nearly half of the American people believe the news is fake, and that number is likely higher after the media’s disastrous handling of the Brett Kavanaugh, Covington Kids, and Jussie Smollett hoax sagas.
The media coverage has gotten so bad, CNN founder Ted Turner said the network had gone too far with partisan politics.
And CNN chairman Jeff Zucker admitted the network relentlessly goes after Trump because he drives ratings.
Independent investigative journalist James O’Keefe got CNN producers and anchors on camera admitting that the Russian collusion story was a “big nothing-burger.”
Acosta also claimed that Trump has inspired other leaders, like Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro, to call out the press.
Criticism of the press certainly isn’t new.
Journalists around the world literally risk their lives to report the truth.
But much of the mainstream press in America tell lies and slanted stories, yet are not silenced by the government, because of the First Amendment that so many leftists are trying to dismantle.
Trump isn’t alone in his justified critique of the media.
Former liberal journalist Bernard Goldberg became a conservative in large part due to seeing left-wing media bias up close and personal.
Former Fox Business host John Stossel had a similar experience.
And longtime Democratic strategist Pat Caddell, who recently passed away, called the press “the enemy of the American people” before Trump ever uttered the phrase.
Trump didn’t incite attacks on the media, he just shined on their dishonesty.
Finally, Acosta claimed that conservatives aren’t being discriminated against on social media, and that they even have a bigger media footprint.
This is laughably false.
Almost every single outlet and mainstream publication leans to the left.
Fox News is the lone conservative news channel in a sea of left-wing media, but somehow they’re the “problem” with journalism.
The partisan leftists want complete conformity.
As for social media, right-wing personalities have routinely been banned from Twitter and YouTube for dubious-at-best reasons.
Meanwhile, leftists get away with the same behavior.
Even leftists who aren’t in complete lockstep get purged.
Radical feminist Meghan Murphy got banned from Twitter for the biologically correct statement that “men aren’t women, tho.”
Jim Acosta is a symbol of what’s wrong with modern journalism.
He isn’t about the truth.
He’s only about himself.
