Leftist journalist called out for his biased “fake news”
On Friday CNN’s Jim Acosta was confronted by attendees at CPAC over his biased news coverage. Video immediately posted on social media showed the Leftist reporter surrounded by people chanting “CNN sucks!”
A reporter asked Acosta when CNN was going to cover the scandals surrounding New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. scandals:
“Hey, hey, hey, Jim,” Federalist reporter David Marcus said as Acosta spoke in an interview about the 2020 election. “Hey, Jim, I’m David Marcus from The Federalist; when are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?”
“Sorry, I’m conducting an interview,” Acosta responded.
“When are you going to start covering Cuomo?” The Federalist reporter repeated. “But, David, we do cover that; we have too,” Acosta replied before asking the Federalist reporter to wait until the completion of his current interview.
Acosta‘s Twitter showed his reaction shortly after: He tweeted: ”I Thought they were against cancel culture.”
The former White House Correspondent was recently moved to cover domestic stories.
While CNN hasn’t covered Cuomo’s scandal intensely, the network has called Cuomo out. Acosta, who is covering CPAC for CNN this year, hasn’t been welcomed kindly by Trump supporters who earlier in the morning yelled at him that “CNN SUCKS!”
