CNN’s Jim Acosta is the poster child for fake news.
Acosta picks fights with the President and anyone who works for him in order to fabricate the anti-Trump narrative for CNN’s viewers.
But now Jim Acosta crossed the line by doing the one thing that could get him fired.
President Trump recently hosted a social media summit.
Social media influencers from across the political spectrum – from left-wing journalist Tim Pool, to pro-Trump content creators – gathered at the White House to discuss social media’s growing threat to democracy with their anti-conservative censorship schemes.
The fake news media did not take kindly to this event.
So-called “journalists” at all the major media outlets routinely lie to their audiences and claim that social media companies aren’t targeting conservatives for bans or content suppression.
But the fact that every major streaming platform took down James O’Keefe’s expose on Google’s attempts to rig the 2020 election against President Trump proves that the liberals who run Big Tech are out to slant the playing field against Republicans.
After the social media summit, President Trump held another event in the Rose Garden where he announced the administration was backing down from trying to include the citizenship question on the 2020 census.
That’s when things got ugly.
CNN’s Jim Acosta whined that the social media summit attendees got seats while reporters had to stand in the back.
Acosta also shared a deceptively edited video from the event – originally tweeted out by fake news New York Times reporter Katie Rogers – that showed former Trump administration official Sebastian Gorka threatening CNN White House correspondent Brian Karem with violence.
“WH officials invited Trump’s social media allies to sit in the Rose Garden. But after the event was over, West Wing aides did nothing when those social media figures began to verbally abuse reporters who were trying to do their jobs. A good snapshot of how press is treated by WH,” Acosta tweeted.

This was typical CNN misinformation deliberately meant to deceive the public.
The full video of the altercation showed that the boorish Karem – who thinks berating female Trump press officials like a bar-room drunk is professional behavior – instigated the confrontation by heckling the social media summit attendees.
Karem claimed the attendees were candidates for “demonic possession.”
When Gorka questioned what Karem was doing, Karem went into full-on professional wrestling mode and launched into a tirade much in the same way a villainous wrestling character would promote the main event of Wrestlemania.
Karem then waved Gorka over and invited him to go outside for a long talk, at which point Gorka called Karem a punk.
You can watch what really happened in this tweet from Breitbart reporter Kyle Morris who posted it in response to Acosta’s attempts to mislead the public.
Here’s a better angle. Sounds as if Brian Karem was only in attendance to berate Trump supporters. pic.twitter.com/gMhlcL3VDE

Karem and Acosta’s conduct on social media and at the White House was deceitful, unethical, and unprofessional.
And many Americans believe that if CNN wants to shed its fake news reputation, they should clean up their act by finding new White House correspondents.
