We, indeed, do need a “watchdog” press in this country with the likes of CNN and other failing mainstream liberal media sources running rampant. That, however, is not something CNN’s Jim Acosta is ready for, hitting a new low this week which, among many faults, is treating the White House Press Briefing more like an interigation rather than stating the current White House happenings.
As Written By David Limbaugh for Newsmax:
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 key elements.
Miller’s presentation was hijacked by Acosta, who is apparently on a crusade to establish himself as America’s conscience and chief protector against President Trump.
We’ve all seen the give-and-take of White House news conferences, and they sometimes involve feisty exchanges between the administration’s spokesperson and members of the media. But there is a difference between a journalist respectfully challenging the White House representative and a militant advocate posing as a journalist and disrespectfully interrupting, disrupting, speechifying and trying to make himself the star of the show.
Acosta put on a clinic on how not to behave in such settings and illustrated why ordinary Americans are so distrustful of the mainstream liberal media.
The proposed legislation would mark a significant overhaul of the nation’s legal immigration policy. Currently, our system substantially burdens taxpayers and the economy. More than half of immigrant households receive welfare benefits, whereas only 30 percent of native households receive welfare. Existing policies discourage assimilation and hardly incentivize learning English.
