CNN operative and White House Correspondent Jim Acosta is set to all but admit he’s a full throated progressive motivated in his reporting work by his political preferences, according to reporting from The Guardian.
Acosta made it clear that he had discarded with the pretense of journalistic “neutrality” as a consequence of the Trump presidency. He’s quoted as stating that “neutrality for the sake of neutrality doesn’t really serve us in the age of Trump,” in his memoir, apparently under the impression that he’d be considered as some sort of objectively impartial journalist if not for the Trump presidency.
The longtime provocateur went even further, admitting that he was guilty of “grandstanding” and “showboating.” Acosta even went so far as to admit that his life began “spiraling out of control” when he lost his White House Press Pass.
It goes without say that many critics of establishment media never would imagine themselves congratulating the disruptive protestor thought by many to be a buffoon, but Acosta’s admission of partisan affiliation is praiseworthy.
Employees of liberal mainstream media outlets have traditionally hid behind a transparently fake veil of “impartiality” and neutrality, pretending as if they are qualified to report on issues of political consequence without the influence of their own views. A media marketplace in which the mainstream media has been forced to compete with more honest entities hasn’t led to more reporters reconsidering their model of journalism like Acosta has seemed to, instead calling for their competitors to be forcibly silenced by social media monopolies.
Acosta’s frank admission of liberal bias is relatively unheard of among major CNN and MSNBC “reporters,” and could open new possibilities for personalities working for the networks. Traditional cable news is facing difficulties as audiences tune out in favor of alternative media, and CNN chief Jeff Zucker recently admitted the platform’s international channel was losing $10 million a year.
CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes
The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.
CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.
Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.
Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.
“Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…”
Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.
“What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?”
The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
