Jim Acosta Is a Preening Showboat But He Deserves First Amendment Protection

“A federal judge on Friday ordered the Trump administration to restore the press credentials of Jim Acosta of CNN, handing the cable network an early win in its lawsuit against the president and members of his administration.

Presiding over one of the first major tests of press rights under President Trump, Judge Timothy J. Kelly of United States District Court in Washington ruled that the White House had behaved inappropriately in stripping Mr. Acosta of his press badge shortly after a testy exchange at a news conference last week.”

The New York Times

Stripping CNN journalist Jim Acosta of his press credentials because he`s stubborn and obnoxious was a grave violation of the First Amendment, and I am delighted with the federal judge`s ruling.

Donald Trump may be the only person who`s happier than me, Acosta is the perfect foil. He`s the perfect sap for the White House`s anti-press crusade, every time Trump or Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tango with Acosta the president`s base salivates with glee. Trump`s followers hatred of reporters is only slightly less than their revulsion of gays and feminists.

Trump didn`t need to resort to the nuclear option to silence the preening CNN reporter, he could simply ignore him and not call upon him to ask any questions.

Acosta`s fellow White House correspondents probably despise him more than Trump, he hates relinquishing the microphone and attempts to turn every question into a mini-interview. Acosta is as reluctant to give up the microphone as a crack head is to let go of his crack pipe.

I`m betting that at the next White House press briefing Acosta will be called upon to ask a question, he`s catnip for Sanders and Trump.

Acosta doesn`t need another rebuke from Trump or Sanders, but his employer should counsel him to ask his question, and a follow-up if necessary, and try not to turn every press conference into the Sanders and Acosta circus.

The CNN ‘This is an Apple’ Ad

“CNN launched a Facts First marketing campaign this morning. The ad features only an apple, though it`s hard to see it as other than a nuts-to-you response to Donald Trump`s campaign to brand CNN as `Fake News.`

`This is an apple,` the ad begins:

Some people might tell you that it`s a banana.

They might scream banana, banana, banana, over and over and over again.

They might put BANANA in all caps.

You might even start to believe that this is a banana.

But it`s not.

This is an apple.

Facts First.

CNN.”

Deadline

I would love to make my own video. My ad would feature only a Jack O` Lantern.

“This is a rotten Jack O` Lantern,” my ad begins.

Some delusional cultists might tell you that it`s the president of the United States.

They might scream president, president, over and over again, demanding that you grant him respect commensurate with his office.

They might even tweet in CAPS: TRUMP IS A GREAT LEADER! TREAT HIM WITH RESPECT.

You might even start to believe that this grotesque orange buffoon deserves to be treated with respect.

But he`s not entitled to any respect.

He`s a rotten orange freak.

The truth hurts.

CNN and Ice Cream-gate

“Is this why voters have lost faith in the American news media?

In what some are now calling `Ice Cream-gate`, CNN`s coverage of Donald Trump`s interview with Time Magazine highlights an apparent scoop: the president is said to receive extra ice cream with his chocolate cream pie.

`Trump takes two scoops of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, TIME reported, while everyone else around the table gets just one,` CNN trumpeted.

Media Equalizer

The revelation that Donald Trump receives an extra scoop of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie isn`t exactly breaking news. Trump resembles a baby hippo; I`m surprised he doesn`t eat two cartons of ice cream with his damn pie.

If the Food Channel gave the breaking news treatment to the discovery that Trump usually gets two scoops of ice cream while everyone else around the table gets just one, it might be understandable. But for a cable news network to give so much play to such an insignificant story is unforgivable.

We already know that Trump is a greedy pig who thinks he deserves special treatment, if he ate two scoops of ice cream served on Sarah Huckabee Sanders` naked butt that would be a big story, but I hope to God there wouldn`t be any video.

I realize that we need a little bit of comic relief from the disastrous Trump administration, but CNN played it straight.

I`m glad I`m an unknown blogger, because if Trump read my article he would tweet: No soup and certainly no ice cream for Robert Paul Reyes! He is pathetic. SAD!!!

Brooke Baldwin Loses It When Guest Says “Nigger”

brooke-baldwin

“Memo to CNN Newsroom guests: Check your racial epithets at the door.

“CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin savaged a guest on CNN Newsroom Tuesday, after the guest hurled the N-word on the show.

Baldwin took author Charles Kaiser to task for using the slur while he was condemning President-elect Donald Trump`s choice for chief White House strategist, Steve Bannon.

`Charles … just hang on a second,` Baldwin said. `Please don`t use the N-word on my show.`

`The more I`ve sat here and listened to the fact that somebody used the N-word on this show ” it is not OK. It is not OK, Charles Kaiser,` she continued.

`I never use the N-word except when I`m quoting someone who`s been appointed by the President to serve in the Oval Office,` Kaiser protested, to no avail.”

CNN

Memo to CNN anchors: Check your political correctness at the door.

Memo to the writer of this article, Tim Kenneally: Charles Kaiser didn`t hurl any word, and certainly not the N-Word, on Baldwin`s show.  Kaiser condemned Steve Bannon for his alleged use of the word “nigger.”

It is the responsibility, indeed the duty, of a journalist to accurately describe a newsworthy event. If a reporter attends a Klan rally, and the racists are shouting “Kill Niggers”, he is being remiss in his duties if he doesn`t write that the Klan members were screaming: Kill Niggers. If the reporter writes that they were shouting the N-Word, that fails to covey to his readers the racial hatred that permeated the meeting.

Baldwin`s histrionics and faux outrage at a guest for having the temerity to use the word “nigger” are emblematic of the political-correctness that prevents CNN for delivering the news in an unbiased manner.

When a commentator or a correspondent uses the word “nigger” in the context of precisely reporting the news only a jackass would think that he is endorsing the use of the vile racial epithet.

Baldwin should focus her outrage at the white supremacists who don`t hesitate to hurl the word “nigger”, and not at a guest who used the word in the context of quoting a newsmaker.

Editorial note: There is no proof whatsoever that Steve Bannon has ever used the ugliest word in the English language.
