ManicProgressive:   What does that even mean, he’s not a journalist? He got his bachelors in Mass Communication and immediately went to work in radio. He’s been working in journalism since 1993.   What exactly does he have to do to be deemed a journalist?

 

For a start, it would help if he became a bootlicker like Hannity. I don't don't take what conservatives say very seriously because they live in fantasy land and will just make stuff up in defense of Trump. No matter how wrong or absurd. That doesn't get any respect from me.

If Trump and Co. will stoop this low, what else will they stoop really low for? I can think of many, many things.

If a person votes for a President and when that person becomes President he does what he promised - how does appreciating it make on 'sheep-like'?

 

As to "The Invaders" - they're still coming. Don't you watch or read the news?


I noted that he promised not to take any vacations and not to play golf. When did he promise to doctor videos so they would fit his narrative?

Harassing the President and hogging the mic is hardly "doing his job" by any reasonable interpretation.
 


Is Acosta one of your neo Marxists? Lay a little conspiracy down for us.


you still do not understand. neo-Marxism is a political ideology. a reporter hogging a mic and making himself the story is just ego.

 

it really isn't all that difficult if one is willing to honestly approach the issue.

Obviously you didn't watch the News Conference.  I watched it all (responses above).  Also, did you know that Acosta is not a journalist (no shock) or even a press person?  He was on the Debate Team in school and knows nothing more than debating like his point means anything to anyone.  He starts many questions with "I challenge you...."  A REAL journalist will ask a question and then try to build his/her story from it. Acosta is an obnoxious jerk and deserves to be shut out of the WH...but maybe they should have just let him stay and ignore him completely from now on.  That might be more entertaining to watch.

Trump has made no secret about how he despises CNN.

 

Why did Trump call on Acosta and hand him the microphone?

 

Then broadcast a doctored video by the White House press Secretary to support a false narrative?

 

Trump and Republicans are playing the American people, this is just another of his stunts, and an attack on the fourth estate.

 

"His people" are buying it hook line and sinker, and saying that is giving them the benefit of the doubt.

No, he was banned for his aggressive movements toward the female intern who was doing HER JOB.  Acosta's 'job' was to get factual news for his employer, not to fight with the President.  Acosta is lucky that Pres Trump even allows him to ask a question....then he wants to hog the mic and attack the President.

 

Do some research and see how many times Obama allowed FOX News (the #1 News Channel) to ask a question at a conference.  Obama didn't even go around the room....he had a prepared list of those he would call on and only chose from his list.

 

Trump enjoys the 'tough questions' and doesn't run from them....Acosta never asks a question or allows Trump to answer.  He's ready to debate him right away and then keeps interrupting him....not that's SAD!

Ummmm - attractive young woman seated in the front row leaps up to grap the mike from a donny detractor and donny relies on InfoWars for a photoshop of the evidence to support pulling the guys press pass?  Would it be different if she wasn't attractive?  It wasn't 'photoshopped' it was sped up a little but makes no difference anyway.  Acosta pushed her arm away...where's the MeNeedAttentionToo movement or does that only work for Liberal women?

1. Who is she and what was she doing grabbing the mike? She was doing her job - to take the mic from one person and give it to the other, and she was asked to take the mic because Acosta kept harassing the president and not allowing others to ask a question.

2. Who decided she'd be seated in the best possible location for mike grabbing?  Another useless question, since she WAS 'seated in the best possible location for mic (sp) grabbing' because (again) it was her job to pass the mic around which makes it quicker (except in hog-the-mic Acosta's case) so one questioner can't monopolize the questioning (as Acosta was doing after Pres Trump continually asked him to give her the mic).

3. Did lil donny promis to pay her legal fees if she smacked the guy? Or (more likely) did he promise to FIRE her if she DIDN'T get into a confrontation?  immature question

4. Does donny grab anthing of her's while off camera and is it covered by a NDA? you really are despicable
