CNN’s Acosta Walks Out of Press Briefing, Whines on Twitter

Published

on

CNN’s prima donna White House beat reporter was not pleased with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders today, and took to Twitter to whine about his displeasure.

“I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened,” Jim Acosta wrote on Twitter. “Sarah Sanders was repeatedly given a chance to say the press is not the enemy and she wouldn’t do it. Shameful.”

Sanders was asked if the press was the enemy of the people.

“The President’s rightfully frustrated,” she said. “Ninety percent of the coverage on him is negative despite the fact that the economy is booming, ISIS is on the run, and American leadership is being reasserted around the world.”

Sanders blasted the media for their refusal to cover President Donald J. Trump’s meeting in Florida with Gov. Rick Scott joined Trump and dozens of business leaders to announce thousands of new jobs. The press refused to cover the event in peevish protest.

After several more questions, Acosta began interrupting, asking if he could have a question and claiming that Sanders “attacked his organization.”

“You did not say that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta said when called upon. “I think it would be a good thing if you were to say right here at this briefing that the press, the people who are gathered at this briefing right now, doing their jobs every day, asking questions of officials like the ones you brought forward earlier are not the enemy of the people. I think we deserve that.”

Acosta has a difficult time taking a hint. First of all, he deserves nothing from the White House. He is not that important. Secondly, people hate Acosta and CNN, evidenced by how he was treated at Trump’s rally in Tampa this week. The people have decided that the press is their enemy, and they did it long before Trump was president.

“I think the President has made his position known. I also think that – I’m trying to answer your question, I politely waited and even called on you despite the fact that you interrupted me while your colleague was speaking,” Sanders said as Acosta interrupted her answer to his own question.

“It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the President for his rhetoric when [the media] frequently lower the level of conversation in this country,” she said.

Sanders detailed examples of the media attacks on her personally, and noted that she was the only press secretary in history to need a security detail.

Acosta then snootily lectured Sanders about how the world was watching what she was saying, and how for “the sake of this Democracy” she should make it clear that the press is not the enemy.

“I appreciate your passion,” she said. “I share it. I’ve addressed this question. I’ve addressed my personal feelings. I’m here to speak on behalf of the President. He’s made his comments clear.”

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

on

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
