    It was excellent. Even CNN, in a report to which Jim Acosta contributed, couldn’t find fault with anything Trump said, although it took the obligatory shots at the event itself. CNN acknowledged that Trump’s speech was not political, but rather “a message of national pride.” Unfortunately, the matter of national pride has become political. But there was nothing in the speech that anyone would have found objectionable before left-liberals rejected the notion of pride in America. There was nothing in the speech that any patriotic American rationally can find objectionable today. You have to dislike America to dislike what Trump...

    When Scott Adams first heard about the way Antifa brutally attacked gay Vietnamese-American journalist Andy Ngo, he was as outraged as any decent person would be. (Leftists, by celebrating the attack or, in Jim Acosta's case, ignoring it despite an entire book about journalists -- i.e., Jim Acosta -- being under siege, have shown themselves to be indecent people.) A problem arose, though, when Adams, who rightly prides himself on being logical and thinking out of the box, watched a video that made him do a 180: suddenly, he has no problem with Antifa. All I can say is that...

    At a time when the American political press could not possibly do any more to embarrass itself, CNN’s Jim Acosta strikes again. This time overseas after President Trump spent the weekend meeting with the world’s most powerful leaders. “Do you agree,” Mr. Acosta slithered, “that it is despicable for a government to kill a journalist?”

    She’s new on the job as White House Press Secretary but Stephanie Grisham has already created headlines of her own. Reporters on the scene of President Trump’s meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un claimed that Grisham was bruised up during a confrontation with North Korean guards. Grisham suffered bruises when a scuffle broke out Sunday between North Korean security guards and members of the media trying to get close to President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as they shook hands at the Demilitarized Zone, the Associated Press reported.The new press secretary was reportedly pushing back...

    The feud between Fox News host Sean Hannity and CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta continued Thursday night after the former ripped the latter’s book sales. In a series of tweets, Mr. Hannity accused Mr. Acosta of “begging” him to get on his prime-time Fox News show to promote his new anti-Trump book, “The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America.” Mr. Hannity called Mr. Acosta’s book debut a “total failure” compared to Mark Levin’s “Unfreedom of the Press,” which has been on the New York Times bestseller list for the last month....

    CNN’s Jim Acosta made a “surprise” visit to the Arlington, Virginia Barnes & Noble to sign copies of his new book, “The Enemy of the People” And to no one’s surprise (except maybe Jim Acosta’s ego) nobody showed up. I think he would have been far better off following in the footsteps of his hero Hillary Clinton and going the Costco route. Well at least while Jim Acosta was sitting around wearing “I’m so embarrassed” smile,” But the good news was Jim Acosta had plenty of time to add a new page to his next work of fiction: Dear Diary:...

    Reviews of the new book "The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America" are starting to pour in and they're panning the book and its author, CNN liberal star reporter Jim Acosta, who one critics insisted has "become a commentator" in the Trump era. NPR book critic Annalisa Quinn hits Acosta's book for not asking why President Trump has "succeeded" with his attacks against the media but used the anti-Trump memoir "as an opportunity to relitigate his spats with the White House rather than to meaningfully interrogate the cultural shift that left huge numbers...

    CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta has been a frequent focal point of anti-press rhetoric from the Trump administration: President Trump has called Acosta a "rude, terrible person" and "fake news." Acosta is the first to admit that “there have been times where, yes, the president and I have tangled with one another.” But he says that in those head-to-head instances, his primary goals have always been to report the news and “stand up for the truth.” .....

    Reading Jim Acosta's new book "Enemy of the People" is like watching a train wreck in progress, with passengers bracing for the inevitable crash. Friends and critics agree we have never seen a president like Donald J. Trump, whose disdain, even contempt and apparent hatred for many members of the press is almost daily on display. Acosta cites instance after instance when this President and many of his staff show that they are bent on interfering with the ability of reporters to bring the public an accurate account of the administration's stewardship. For most of his adult life, President Trump...

    Foreign policy expert Ian Bremmer, the president and founder of Eurasia Group and a New York University political science professor, got in big trouble Sunday for tweeting a fake quote attributed to President Trump, then claiming it was “plausible” the president would say it. “Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden,” Bremmer wrote in the now-deleted tweet, attributing it to Trump. North Korea has labeled Biden a “fool of low IQ” and an “imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being” after the U.S. presidential hopeful recently called North Korean leader...

    President Donald Trump rolled out a new immigration plan in a press conference held in the White House Rose Garden on May 16 that focused on addressing the major flaws in America’s current immigration laws and border control system. During his presentation of his new plan, Trump said the following: “We must also restore the integrity of our broken asylum system. Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum-seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims—these are frivolous claims—to gain admission into our country. Asylum abuse also strains our public...

    CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was accused of being dishonest over a tweet he sent while covering President Trump's immigration overhaul remarks. In a speech given at the Rose Garden, President Trump detailed what he hoped would be included in a massive reform, including using a merit-based system for new migrants and ending the visa lottery. Acosta opined from his account about a remark the president made about asylum seekers, accusing him of painting with a "broad brush."

    President Donald Trump has become irritated at an emerging impression his hawkish national security advisers are marching him closer to war with Iran despite his isolationist tendencies, according to people familiar with the matter. Instead, Trump is signaling his intent to speak with the Iranians as tensions rise in the Persian Gulf, and his national security team has taken steps they hope could facilitate a new diplomatic opening. The likelihood of such an opening appears slim. But Trump has raised concern with the heightened rhetoric, believing a large-scale military intervention with Iran would be devastating to him politically, people familiar...

    CNN is planning to cut up to 300 jobs, "many being older employees with years at the network," according to a report on Monday. According to FTVLive, a website that monitors the television industry, "Word is that just under 200 people will be pink slipped and just over 100 will be offered a buyout." Staffers are reportedly calling the cuts a "massive brain drain" because so many veteran employees are being given pink slips. The website obtained an email that Tony Maddox, the executive vice president and managing director of CNN International, shared with staff announcing his departure. "After 21...

    CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta ripped President Donald Trump over his repeated claim that the Russia investigation was an "attempted coup" by the Obama administration, suggesting that the president doesn't "understand what he’s saying." During a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the White House on Friday, President Trump insisted that there "absolutely" was an attempted coup and renewed his attacks on the "insurance policy" that was mentioned in a text exchange between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page. He also called the Russia investigation a "disgrace to our country." When...
