CNN: Jim Acosta “has our complete support”

CNN’s senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta received a glowing endorsement from CNN today, following his disagreement with President-elect Donald Trump at a press conference, where Trump dismissed Acosta and CNN as “fake news;” and therefore unworthy of a question.

Incoming press secretary Sean Spicer accused Acosta of being “rude, inappropriate, and disrespectful,” and saying that he owes Trump “an apology.”

On Fox, Spicer said, “You do not treat the president-elect or any major figure in that way.”

But CNN pushed back, showing support for Acosta.

“As we have learned many times, just because Sean Spicer says something doesn’t make it true. Jim Acosta is a veteran reporter with the utmost integrity and extensive experience in covering both the White House and the President-elect. Being persistent and asking tough questions is his job, and he has our complete support.”

  1. Spicer is right, but what else was CNN going to say? Acosta lost any respect I might of once had for him.
