    To be fair, we're not just picking on CNN. Almost all of the media have people on the ground (in the water) and are asking Texas residents who've just lost everything rather stupid questions. It was only a matter of time before a flood victim, witnessing the insensitive rush for ratings, had enough.
  • Trump's Secretary of Labor Attacks One Of Our Worst Job Barriers

    I was disappointed when President Trump’s first choice for Secretary of Labor, restaurant magnate Andy Puzder, was forced to withdraw his name. He would have made great use of the office as a Bully Pulpit to highlight the many ways the government impedes job growth through counterproductive regulations – such as the absurd notion that it’s possible to legislate better lives for workers by ratcheting up the minimum wage. Nevertheless, I’m pleasantly surprised by the performance so far by the man Trump subsequently chose for the position, R. Alexander Acosta, who was confirmed in April. Acosta, a former U.S. attorney...
  • Major Acosta Fail

    On Wednesday, CNN's Jim Acosta unwittingly demonstrated the difference between an unbiased, truth-seeking media and a biased, hostile and advocacy media. We need a watchdog press in this country, but its proper function is to report the news, not become the story. Acosta had displayed his obnoxiousness before, but he descended to a new low this week. Earlier in the day, President Trump had appeared with Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue to endorse their immigration bill, called the RAISE Act. The bill was the major focus of the White House press briefing, and presidential adviser Stephen Miller outlined its...

    WASHINGTON — White House senior adviser Stephen Miller battled reporters from The New York Times and CNN during Wednesday’s press briefing taking the reins from President Trump on the war on “fake news.” Miller was at the briefing in support of the Raise Act, a Senate bill that would cut immigration by half over ten years and represent the most significant immigration reform in over half a century. The bill, which is sponsored by Republican senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, would accomplish this by implementing a merit-based immigration system and largely ending the current practice of immigrants bringing over...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said a top White House aide put a CNN reporter "in his place" at the press briefing on Wednesday. Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller slammed CNN's Jim Acosta as having a "cosmopolitan bias" when Acosta questioned him about newly proposed U.S. immigration policy. Speaking on FOX News Channel’s "Hannity," Sanders predicted CNN would only run an "edited version" of the showdown which took place earlier in the day. "But my guess is, it's not the version where Stephen Miller puts him in his place," she said. Miller took questions on the new policy...

    White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller found himself clashing with CNN correspondent Jim Acosta at Wednesday's White House press briefing. "What the president is proposing here does not sound like it's in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration. The Statue of Liberty says, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses,'" Acosta said, quoting from the poem The New Colossus, which was inscribed on the statue after its erection. "It doesn't say anything about speaking English or be a computer programmer," Acosta continued. "Aren't you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant...

    The Department of Homeland Security announced Monday it would expand the number of temporary visas granted this year for workers in seasonal non-agricultural industries like tourism. In a statement, DHS said Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly had consulted with Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta and determined there were not enough “qualified and willing U.S. workers” to fill the needs of businesses. “Congress gave me the discretionary authority to provide temporary relief to American businesses in danger of suffering irreparable harm due to a lack of available temporary workers,” Kelly said in a statement. “As a demonstration of the administration’s commitment...

    CNN’s Jim Acosta accused President Donald Trump of “fake news” on Thursday for claiming that “three of four” intelligence agencies had identified Russia as the culprit in hacking during the 2016 presidential election — but the president was right, and Acosta was wrong. Last week, the New York Times was forced to issue a correction, admitting that “17 intelligence agencies” had not, in fact, accused Russia, as Hillary Clinton had once claimed. The correction read, in part (original emphasis): The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency,...

    In the moments following President Trump’s WWE-style tweet about CNN, Jim Acosta, the CNN reporter who has been one of the network’s main antagonists toward the Trump administration, rhetorically asked if pro wrestling was fake. "Isn't pro wrestling fake? " — Jim Acosta (@Acosta) July 2, 2017 Not the best idea. Immediately, the word fake was used by Donald Trump Jr. and others to hammer his network. "Yes, just like your coverage. " — Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) July 2, 2017 And the floodgates opened. "Just like the news on CNN… " — Stefan Molyneux (@StefanMolyneux) July 2, 2017...

    CNN’s Jim Acosta Tweeted fake news tonight and has not apologized for his hoaxing. Acosta Tweeted, “WH official on hospital visit: “President Trump did not meet with Scalise and did not go into the room where Scalise is being treated.” This was proven to be fake. Acosta deleted the Tweet after it received nearly 2,000 RTs. He did not apologize for his error. Ironically, Acosta’s pinned Tweet says, “We are real news Mr. President. #realnews.” Jim Acosta is fake news. CNN is fake news. Acosta tried doing damage control, blaming his fake news Tweet on an unnamed “poll reporter.” His...

    At Monday’s audio-only and photos-only White House press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta continued to make a fool out of himself, melting down and screaming at press secretary Sean Spicer over the current set-up for briefings. Acosta first interrupted after a female reporter didn’t get her question answered. When he yelled at Spicer to answer her question, Spicer lobbed some A+ shade at Acosta: “There's no camera on, Jim.”‘There’s No Camera on, Jim!’ Showboating CNN’s Acosta Yells at Spicer Over Press AccessThe CNN liberal immediately took Spicer’s bait, screaming as Spicer tried to move on: “Maybe we...

    Washington, D.C. - At the President and the Press event at the Newseum Wednesday, five members of the White House press corps weighed in on their experience covering the first three months of the Trump presidency. The audience was especially interested in what CNN’s Jim Acosta had to say, considering he has had some rather colorful exchanges with the president in his entertaining press conferences. Acosta, you’ll remember, was the reporter on the receiving end of Trump’s “fake news” retort back in January after his network reported on the unverified Russian dossier published by BuzzFeed. Acosta, however, has no regrets...

    President Donald Trump’s new nominee to run the Department of Labor is an accomplished lawyer and a rising star in the GOP’s Hispanic networks and also in the party’s pro-diversity establishment wing. The nominee, Alexander Acosta, is a Harvard graduate and a former senior justice department official under George W. Bush. From 2005, he served as a federal attorney in Florida, where he successfully prosecuted a series of high-profile cases and is now a university dean. If confirmed by the Senate to run the Department of Labor, Acosta will play an important role in overseeing and regulating the annual inflow...

    On Thursday, President Donald Trump named Alexander Acosta as his new nominee for secretary of labor — the same man who cut a sweetheart plea deal with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in 2008. Acosta, while working as the top federal prosecutor in Miami, agreed not to file any federal charges against Epstein — who was accused of having sex with dozens of underage teen girls — in exchange for him pleading guilty to state charges of soliciting prostitution and soliciting a minor for prostitution. The infamous pedophile had been accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls into a sex-slave network....

    I applaud President Trump for nominating Alex Acosta to be Secretary of Labor. I've known Alex for over twenty years; he and I went to law school together, and he's a smart, principled conservative with a passion for justice. His record of service, inclusion, and accomplishment spans decades. Alex has served as a law clerk to Justice Samuel Alito, as a Board Member on the National Labor Relations Board, as the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and most recently as a pioneering law-school dean. His nomination to the Labor...
