Pathetic: CNN’s Jim Acosta Reacts to ‘Fake News Awards’ and It’s Just What You’d Expect

In case you missed it, President Trump released his highly anticipated “Fake News Awards” on Wednesday night. I would have liked to have seen a bigger production than a tweet, but, hey, the message is out and the Democrat Media Complex cannot deny it because each of the stories was proven to be patently false with many embarrassingly retracted. Well, they can and likely will deny or ignore it but they would be demonstrating once again how disingenuous and intellectually dishonest they are. Since when has that stopped them, right?

The leftist media suffers from such a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome that they have been quick to publish unverified stories just to hurt President Trump. They whine and complain when Trump calls them “fake news” while giving him more ammunition for his accusation over and over again. (NOTE for the lefties: By ammunition, I mean news stories, not bullets.)

If they don’t or can’t deny because the evidence is overwhelming, then they attempt to destroy their accusers with deflection. That’s precisely what one of the ultimate sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome, CNN’s Jim Acosta, did when he was confronted with evidence from the ‘Fake News Awards.’

According to Politico, when confronted with the information about the ‘Fake News Awards’ by Politico’s Christiano Lima, accosting Acosta immediately went into ‘destroy and deflect’ mode because, quite simply, there is no denying the stories that caused CNN to be ‘honored’ with four of the awards were outright fake news.

An event on press freedom co-hosted by the Newseum and the Committee to Protect Journalists came to a screeching halt after an audience member mentioned mid-event that Trump released the awards. POLITICO’s Cristiano Lima informed Acosta that CNN was among the recipients, prompting the White House correspondent to fire back: “I would say, having been called fake news myself, the president is the king of fake news.”

I’ve got news for you, Jimmy. First of all, President Trump is not a news organization. When your network not only spouts fake news but spends hours every single day hammering it before issuing a weak retraction, you demonstrate just how corrupt, and in the bag for the left, the press is. On a daily basis, you make it perfectly clear that you believe what MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski when she said she believes it’s the media’s job “control exactly what people think.”

Second, I didn’t hear you deny the fake news allegations probably because the examples given are so glaring.

  • CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
  • CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.
  • CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”
  • CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.

How do you like them apples?

This is just a small example of CNN’s habit, or dare I say commitment, to disseminating fake news. Own that, Jimbo.
