At this point, everyone is sick of CNN’s Jim Acosta.
As a matter of fact, even the president of the WH Correspondents’ Association has had it with Jim’s childish and bombastic behavior and slammed Acosta in his own book:
Karl, chief Washington correspondent at ABC News, provided the criticism of his fellow White House reporter both in his new book Front Row at the Trump Show, released Tuesday, and during recent interviews.
In the book, he argued Acosta, who has had a multitude of verbal dust-ups with President Trump during press briefings, was “playing into the explicit Trump strategy of portraying the press as the opposition party” and encouraged him not to “give speeches from the White House briefing room.”
Karl later told The Daily Beast, “Regarding Jim Acosta, to paraphrase Voltaire, I will defend to the death his right to report from the White House, but I have some issues with the style in which he has done so … We can be tough, we can call out things that are not true, we can be aggressive in our questioning, but I don’t think we should act like we are part of the resistance.” [Washington Examiner]
We all know Acosta is scum, but no one has truly summed it up is as brilliantly as Jonathan Turley.
Turley, like many others, was disgusted by Acosta’s behavior at a recent press conference where he repeatedly interrupted Dr. Birx. Acosta is well-known for his spats with President Trump, but this tactic being used against Dr. Birx was the last straw for Turley.
He issued a savage tweet, where he labeled Acosta as the source of the “press pandemic” surrounding COVID-19.
Jim Acosta's interruption of Dr. Birx is an example of how CNN's echo-journalism model is destroying the media's credibility. Every question from Acosta is an effort to score points rather than elicit information. It is a press pandemic that continues to rage without relief.

We all know it’s been said many times before, but Acosta seriously needs to get his press pass pulled.
He’s clearly just acting this way to score points with the fringe left and not to actually “report” on anything.
