White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, asked point-blank by CNN’s Jim Acosta to do so, did not say that the press is not the “enemy of the people,” as President Donald Trump has claimed.

In a jawdropping exchange which got the CNN reporter so frustrated he eventually walked out, Acosta challenged Sanders to stand against the president’s tweets.

“You read off a laundry list of your concerns about the press and then things that you feel were misreported but you did not say that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta said. “I think it would be a good thing if you were to state right here at this briefing that the press, the people who are gathered in this room right now, doing their jobs every day, asking questions of officials like the ones you brought forward earlier are not the enemy of the people. I think we deserve that.”

But Sanders did not do so.

“It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the president for his rhetoric when they frequently lowered the level of conversation in this country,” she said.

“The media has attacked me repeatedly… When I was hosted by the correspondence association you brought up a comedian to attack me. As far as I know I’m the first press secretary in the history of the United States that’s required Secret Service protection,” she continued. “The media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the president and everyone in this administration and certainly we have a role to play but the media has to role to play for the discourse in this country as well.”

“You did not say in the course of those remarks that you just made that the press is not the enemy of the people,” Acosta replied. “Are we to take it from what you just said, we all get put through the wringer, we all get put through the meat grinder in this town and you’re not an exception and I’m sorry that happened to you. I wish that did not happen.”

“For the sake of this room, for the people in this room, this democracy, this country, all the people around the world are watching what you are saying and the White House for the United States of America, the president of the United States should not refer to us as enemy of the people? His own daughter acknowledges that and all I’m asking is you acknowledge that right here and right now.”

“I appreciate your passion. I share it. I’ve addressed this question. I’ve addressed my personal feelings. I’m here to speak on behalf of the president. He’s made his statements clear.”
.
IMO this is classic Jim Acosta, he's been growing increasingly more shrill. So of course he had another sanctimonious tantrum and stormed off. I'd say that a lot of the press have become enemies of the people, but there are still some serious and respectable journalist out there. I just don't think Jim is one of them.

It's absolutely shameful that the press secretary to the president, when given a chance, an easy out really, couldn't say the press isn't the enemy of the American people.

Worse, her only response was basically "My views are his, and remember that a comedian roasted me at a roast so we're the real victims".

Pathetic. Jim Acosta gave her every out and she failed.

The President's popularity hit 50% today and showing no signs of waning before the November election cycles. Acosta is currently off the rails, and will go appositively apoplectic over this latest development.

Despite losing round after round, the left keeps repeating the same mistakes as they attempt to vilify a populist President. All the while presuming it will lead to a different outcome. It will not.

It's fun to watch yes, but insanity is not a good quality to have on one's resume.'

Of course the msm are the enemy of the people. The media's job is to report the news in a fair and balanced way. Obviously this doesn't happen. Instead, the msm distorts, lies, exaggerates, etc.

So yes, the msm are the enemy. When they stop bein' a bunch of partisan sheep, they'll stop bein' called that.

The ball is in their court.

Here's Jimmy showin' his partisanship. These are his own words about those who support Trump.

Quote:
“The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act,” the reporter said. “They’re not in on the act, and they take what he says very seriously, and they take attacks from [former White House press secretary] Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders and what they do to us on a daily basis very seriously. They don’t have all their faculties in some cases — their elevator might not hit all floors.
So if ya support Trump your elevator doesn't hit all the floors.

Acosta is just another sheep in the flock who lies and distorts the news. The fact peeps call him a "journalist" or "reporter" is scary as fuq.

Oh please spare us another dose of Acosta's sanctimonious indignation that has been on full display for over a year and a half. But sure, that's all she said. Shameful of you but par for the course.

Of course she wouldn't answer his demands. I betting Sarah is smart enough to refuse the bait and give Acosta any words with which he can twist.

What is shameful is that slime ball Jim Acosta, he's a disgusting piece of work.

Sarah said a LOT more than that, a LOT more. Good freaking grief, she has to have flipping SS protection.

And we have that moron Auntie Maxine telling people to go after Trump employee's and Trump supporters.
Trump supporters are being violently attacked and Trump's staff and cabinet members AND their families have been terrorized.

Let us not forget the leftist that SHOT Steve Scalise.

All the while the punk a$$ media is telling people the 'end' is coming fast and telling lie after lie about Trump.
America is not as stupid as the media and the Democrats/leftists/progressives make them out to be. America SEES this booming economy.
And as for the haters that put their hatred before the good of the country, I don't give a fig about them and in addition I say:
Screw the media, the Media IS the enemy of the people.

The 10 most mortifying media moments of 2017

Quote:
10 — It’s Our Job to Tell You What to Think. During a February broadcast of “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski chastised Trump for telling Americans to be skeptical of the press, worrying Americans may trust him over her media colleagues. “He could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job."



9 — ABC Botches Biggest Story of Year. Shortly after Michael Flynn was indicted for lying to the FBI, ABC’s Brian Ross broke what appeared to be a massive scoop: that during the campaign, Trump instructed him to coordinate with Russia. This led to reporters giddily anticipating the apparently inevitable downfall of Trump, which no one highlighted better than Joy Behar, who literally shouted “Yes!” after delivering Ross’s “scoop.” The only problem is the story was completely wrong; it was then President Elect Trump who had given these (very normal) instructions, just as President Elect Obama had reached out to Iran during his own transition. Ross was subsequently suspended for the “serious error.”



8 — Late-Night Leftism. When Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy sponsored a health-care reform bill that would have given states more flexibility to operate health-care exchanges, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel abandoned comedy altogether and instead used his show to rally his audience against the bill. After turning “Jimmy Kimmel Tonight” into a platform for nauseating left-wing sermonizing, he was dubbed “America’s Conscience” by his colleagues in the media.



7 — Hillary, Our Hero. After spending months hunting for an opportunity to expose a Trump scandal, Hillary published her book on the 2016 race (“What Happened”) and went on a whirlwind publicity tour, where reporters treated the scandal-scarred former First Lady to chardonnay, flattery & panda videos.



6 — ‘Reporting’ as an Excuse for Venting. All too often in 2017, “reporting” on the Trump Administration became synonymous with “venting.” Mika Brzezinksi, for example, used the opportunity of reporting on a Trump tweet to say (all in one sentence) that the president has no morals, is a bully, acts like a bigot, is racist, and is a sexual harasser. The New York Time’s Tom Friedman, commenting on a torrent of news from the Trump Administration, said that “from a journalism perspective” Trump is like a “brain eating disease.” Former reporter Mark Halperin said the election of Trump was a “more cataclysmic event” than 9/11.



5 — Let’s Impeach Trump Already! After President Trump fired FBI director James Comey, the media appeared certain he’d just committed his first impeachable offense. Almost without fail, Democratic guests appearing on TV in May were expected to announce when they would initiate impeachment proceedings against the president.



4 — Vegas Scapegoating. When an atrocity of inexplicable scale struck Las Vegas, Americans demanded answers. When those were slow in coming, the media turned their sights on Republicans, blaming gun rights for the tragedy. (Note: They did the same thing after the mass shooting in Texas.)



3 — Abandoning Any Sense of Perspective. After Donald Trump Jr. acknowledged accepting a meeting a sketchy Russian lawyer who said she had dirt on Hillary Clinton, reporters and others in the media jumped the rhetorical shark, calling it a case of “treason.” Yet months later it was reported the Clinton campaign solicited anti-Trump gossip from Kremlin agents (via their intermediary, Fusion GPS), an arguably far worse ethical lapse, and these same talking heads were curiously quiet. https://grabien.com/file.php?id=277165



2 — Emoting as Reporting. Just weeks into the Trump Administration, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski was struggling. The emotional toll was already too much; after Trump had tweeted that the Trump Tower had been wiretapped, she could no longer take it, telling viewers it was OK to be scared. “We’re all really nervous, too,” she emoted.



1 — Reporters Treat Obama to One Final Slobberfest. In President Obama’s final appearance before the White House press corps, reporters used the opportunity to … shower him with praise, adulation, and hagiography. These sycophantic reporters were seemingly competing to see who could offer Obama the most effusive praise. That honor may have gone to The Blade’s Chris Johnson, who itemized to the president what he felt were his greatest accomplishments -- before inviting him to bash Trump. Or the LA Times’ Christi Parsons, who begged the president to call her (while pointing at her phone), and telling him it’s been “an honor” covering his administration. Her actual question? How he was going to explain the election of Trump to his children.

Watch the vid and tell me how non-partisan Jimmy is. Dude is the furthest thing from a journalist.
