Jim Acosta got hit with a big surprise that will have you red with rage
CNN’s Jim Acosta is the fake of the network’s Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The White House correspondent peddles misinformation and Democratic Party talking points under the banner of “straight news.”
And now Acosta juts got hit with a career changing surprise that will leave you red with rage.
A prestigious journalism organization announced that Jim Acosta would be the 2019 winner of the “Truth to Power” award.
New York Press Club president Jane Tillman Irving announced that Acosta would be receiving the award,
“We are proud to honor a man such as Jim Acosta, who has proven himself throughout his storied, decades-long career to be a journalist of the utmost integrity,” Tillman Irving stated. “For his unwavering commitment to fact and journalism, we are pleased to add to Jim’s many accolades with the Gabe Pressman ‘Truth to Power’ award.”
Liberal fake news organizations love the phrase “truth to power.”
What they mean when they say it is relentlessly bombarding Republicans with stories where the left’s attacks and issue framing are presented as news.
Acosta provided a perfect example of this.
In the infamous post-midterm press conference that led to the White House temporarily revoking Acosta’s “hard pass” the fake news CNN “reporter” berated Donald Trump during a press event claiming there was no illegal alien caravan invasion, no migrants were climbing over fences and the mobs of illegal aliens were weeks or months away from reaching the United States.
“As you know, Mr. President, the caravan was not an invasion,” Acosta began. “It’s a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border with the U.S.,” he said smugly.
“Do you think that you demonized immigrants in this election?” Acosta asked
When president Trump responded that he did not Acosta jumped in with more lies.
“But your campaign had an ad showing migrants climbing over walls and so on,” Acosta continued. “They’re not going to be doing that … They’re hundreds of miles away … That’s not an invasion.”
Just weeks later video emerged of thousands of illegal alien migrants rushing the border with some climbing over border fencing.
The crisis only grew from there.
In March, Homeland Security reported apprehending over 100,000 illegal aliens at the Southern border.
But because Acosta told Democrat Party approved lies in a public setting – and had his hard pass taken away for rudely spreading fake news and misinformation – a bunch liberal so-called “journalists” got together and bestowed upon him an award.
This phrase vanishes from the media landscape when a Democrat is in power.
During Barack Obama’s two terms in office, the fake news media saw it as their job to act as stenographers dutifully reporting every Obama statement as fact without offering any pushback or questions.
They worked as a cleanup covering up or downplaying the multitude of scandals that plagued the Obama administration.
To this day, when Obama claims his White House was scandal free so-called journalists nodded along and uncritically report this lie as truth.
And – of course – none other than Jim Acosta was the poster child for softball coverage of the Obama administration.
Jason Howerton of the Blaze put together a montage of Acosta teeing up friendly questions for Obama where he all but invites then President Obama for a day of spa treatment.
