CNN Reporter Complains About Being Blackballed After Spending Press Briefing Interrupting Spicer
Daily Caller by Alex Pfeiffer June 26, 2017
WASHINGTON — CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta spent the White House press briefing Monday rudely interrupting White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Acosta has been complaining about the White House’s increased use of off-camera briefings, and instead of waiting to be called on like other reporters Monday, he decided to shout out his questions. The Daily Caller counted a total of five interruptions during the briefing.
Spicer called on a reporter who had raised her hand and Acosta interjected himself and asked if President Trump believes the health care bill in the Senate is “mean.” Spicer replied, “There’s no camera on Jim.” Acosta then repeatedly asked, “Why don’t you turn the cameras on?” Spicer then apologized to the reporter Acosta was interrupting.
Acosta’s subsequent interruptions inquiring about the briefing being untelevised were likewise ignored by Spicer. The White House press secretary said in a radio interview last week that he prefers the off-camera briefings as reporters “want to become YouTube stars” when the cameras are on.
(So this jerk-off kept shouting over Spicer as he had called on another reporter. He was just a rude entitled prick. You know. A journalist. He was demanding that Spicer call on him and CNN. He was demanding that they televise the briefing so he can look like a tough guy. Well lets show him how a tough guy operates. Throw him the fuck out of the White House altogether. Tell CNN that they have lost their press privileges. Totally. If the other outlets want to walk let them. Only do non televised briefings. Period. Just like the old days when FDR and Truman had press conferences. Actual talented reporters ask substantive questions without grandstanding and playing to the cameras. Let's go back to that. If the current group of Nancy boys can't handle that then so be it.
Or we can give Acosta and the rest of the scumbags at CNN two behind the ear. I am ok with that. They have started shooting our congressmen. We need to start shooting back.
But lets start with banning them and throwing them out of the White House. You can let an asshole like this shout and disrupt a press conference where other people are trying to do their jobs. Stick it to them. Hard. Show some balls. Now. Not later. No half measures. Now is the time.)
