Jim Acosta Writing Book About Jim Acosta Reporting the News as Jim Acosta
CNN’s Jim Acosta is writing a book, and shockingly, the theme is, well, Jim Acosta.
“CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta is authoring a book about the Trump administration and its battles with the news media,” CNN said of its own reporter. “The Harper imprint of HarperCollins Publishers announced the book on Thursday morning. Harper says Acosta will share ‘never-before-revealed stories of this White House’s rejection of truth, while laying out the stakes for how Trump’s hostility toward facts poses an unprecedented threat to our democracy.'”
True to mainstream press journalistic form, the book will likely a steaming pile of partisan hackery.
“This is a dangerous time to tell the truth in America, but the truth is bigger than a bully,” Acosta reportedly said.
Accordingly, the book will be called The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America, which is dangerously close to this reporter’s upcoming book, out July 16, called Enemies: The Press vs. The American People.
“Simply put, I am writing this book to share what I’ve experienced covering President Trump during his first two years in office,” Acosta said Thursday. “This sobering, bewildering, and sometimes frightening experience has made it absolutely clear that this is a dangerous time to tell the truth in America.”
Aide from the fact that CNN does not tell the truth, annoyingly, Acosta just cannot seem to give America a break from his tiresome, self-congratulatory babble.
“The president and his team, not to mention some of his supporters, have attempted to silence the press in ways we have never seen before. As just about everybody has seen, I have witnessed this first hand. As difficult as that challenge may be for the free press in America, we must continue to do our jobs and report the news. The truth is worth the fight,” he said.
You’re a regular hero, Jim. Keep up the great work!
