“The media has changed. We now give broadcast licenses to philosophies instead of people. People who project themselves as journalists on television don’t know the first thing about journalism. They are just there stirring up a hockey game.” ~Gary Ackerman
Yesterday, the president held a press conference … and a hockey game broke out.
Jim Acosta … CNN’s ankle-biting chihuahua … couldn’t wait for the Democrats to launch their post-election strategy, so he did it for them.
Went straight for the presidential jugular. Chewed out Donald Trump in his own house. Hogged the scene … and got his look-at-me moment.
I wonder how the Democrat leadership liked having their post-election euphoria stepped on by the boorish bad-boy of the New Media.
Poor Schumer and Pelosi … given the hook by Jim Acosta. Their House victory wilted by a media goon who thinks he’s bigger than any story.
And neither Schumer nor Pelosi dares to speak up … because they need him … and they fear him.
Acosta is now more than the leader of the not-so-loyal opposition. He is the de facto leader of America’s newest, yet-to-be-named political party.
Democrats now take their cue from his media mob. No need for any strategies or policies. Democrats can download all they need straight from the CNN website.
How sad is that?
The Democrats … America’s third party.

1. “Former President Obama throws out a heckler… he took to the podium in the East Room of the White House, in 2015 where the heckler interrupted Obama shortly after he began to speak.”
2. “The conduct of a handful of so-called reporters during President Trump’s news conference was disgraceful beyond measure. This is not journalism, this is narcissism. Naturally, the boorish Jim Acosta of CNN was the instigator. As is his habit, Acosta doesn’t ask questions — he makes accusations and argues.” ~Michael Goodwin NY POST
3. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that the administration will “never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman” — referring to a tussle for the microphone between Acosta and a White House intern. ~Joe Tacopino NY POST
