CNN should have thought this whole “suing the White House over Jim Acosta” thing through (see President Trump Dresses Down Rude Jim Acosta on Live TV and Here We Go: CNN is Suing the White House Over Jim Acosta). Mistakes were made. Sympathy for Acosta isn’t there. And now they have Larry King calling CNN fake news.
Yes, THAT Larry King. CNN legend Larry King.
“You’re not bigger than [Trump]. It isn’t about you, it’s about him,” King said. “CNN has become — as is Fox, and MSNBC — Trump networks. There’s the anti-Trump network, the partial anti-Trump network, and the pro-Trump network. But they’re not news networks.”
King is actually right about the media as a whole. They don’t report news as much as have knee-jerk reactions anything Donald Trump tweets. It’s the main reason so many Americans have more trust for single-ply toilet paper immediately after bad Kung Pao than they do media.
So when CNN sues the White House over a sanctimonious prick like Jim Acosta, most people release a collective, “Meh.” Maybe the left and right can unify after all. Behind Jim Acosta being a douche who totally deserved it.
