Something spooked Jim Acosta.
CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta claimed Thursday that President Donald Trump referring to the media as the “enemy of the people” could help create an environment where journalists are killed.
Speaking before the Oxford Union Society in the United Kingdom, Acosta made several attempts at justifying his confrontational style when it comes to covering the Trump administration, which has not only garnered strong rebukes from the president, but even some of his own establishment media colleagues. In his remarks, Acosta criticized President Trump for characterizing news organizations which have a partisan bend against him as “fake news” or the “enemy of the people.”
Now, at this point, I think that a lot of people are confused and afraid.
For the most part, they’re cowering and hunkering down – except the Boomers who, like blissfully unaware children, continue to do anti-PC things by mistake.
But there will come a moment, in the not-too-distant future when that shock and fear and confusion turns into anger.
I don’t know when and I don’t know enough about mass psychology to say how… but there’s no way that this doesn’t end badly for journalists sooner rather than later.
Well, they keep harassing regular people. They film FBI raids on senior citizens’ homes, accuse soccer moms of being Russian agents and ruin teenagers’ lives for FaceCrime.
There’s no way someone doesn’t get really mad about their life getting ruined before this is all over.
So Jim is right to be worried.
There are only lay-offs and lynchings in the future of the profession.
