CNN Doesn’t Spin, Isn’t Anti-Trump, We’re ‘Defenders Of The People’


No doubt why their ratings are so high...


Quote:CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta insisted that he works “on behalf of the American people” and that his network doesn’t “spin” its coverage.

Promoting his new book “The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America” on “CNN Tonight,” Acosta explained that he “wanted to write something to the American people, ‘You know what folks, we’ve got to think deeply about this… Do we want to hand off to the next generation a country where it’s okay for the president of the United States to refer to journalists or any segement of the American population as the ‘enemy of the people.'”

“I think what the president fails to understand is that we’re not here to do a commercial for him, we’re not part of the Trump Organization, we’re here to do the news for the American people,” Acosta told CNN anchor Don Lemon. “And just like the folks who work in the White House need to keep in mind that they work on behalf of the American people, they don’t serve the president, they don’t serve just the man who’s in the office right now- they serve the presidency in the United States of America… we’re here to work on behalf of the American people.”

He lives in a bubble, and not a normal bubble but one that is painted black which doesn't even allow for the slightest light from the outside world to penetrate.

Now there's a man who occasionally enjoys a bit of self celebration.

So a CNN program invited a CNN reporter to come on the air and discuss the new book he’s written. And while they were talking, the CNN reporter and the CNN host agreed that CNN is not politically-motivated in its reporting, and CNN is not hostile to Trump.

Precious!
