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.

Jennifer Rubin Calls for Biden to Accuse Trump of Willingness to Kill People
A new low.
Washington Post neoconservative pundit Jennifer Rubin called for Joe Biden to descend to a new political low in a Thursday tweet, stating that the presumptive Democratic nominee needed to accuse Donald Trump of “willingness to kill people.“
If Biden is serious about winning he needs to accuse Trump of willingness to kill people. https://t.co/JiTMMGvDBE

Rubin has become increasingly unhinged in recent months, and now appears prepared to utilize the vicious vitriol she previously reserved for Bernie Sanders and his supporters on Donald Trump and his voters.
It goes without saying that Rubin’s call for Biden to attack Trump in such a sensational matter doesn’t even make sense. She’s framing Trump’s supposed willingness to kill people around the response to the coronavirus, but deaths from a naturally occurring virus are not the same thing as a president consciously choosing to kill people, let alone his own citizens.
Rubin has claimed that less Democrats will die of the Chinese coronavirus in the coming weeks and months because they’re supposedly less liable to conservative “misinformation” and will follow the experts. She seems to have missed that the coronavirus epidemic is most severe in reliably liberal and Democratic states such as New York, which has incurred the greatest individual share of American coronavirus casualties by far.
Joe Biden, to the extent that he has any power over his own campaign message and rhetoric, probably isn’t going to follow Rubin’s hysterical advice. Biden has avoided overtly political attacks against Trump involving the coronavirus, realizing that most Americans aren’t looking for everyday partisan politics in the midst of the historically unprecedented pandemic.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has admitted that President Trump has delivered in a meaningful fashion for his state, in any case. Perhaps Rubin should consider that Democratic governors are touting their fruitful cooperation with Trump before ascribing murderous intent to the President.
