CNN’s Jim Acosta blasted Fox News host Sean Hannity on Twitter after Hannity criticized him for complaining about how Trump supporters treated him during the president’s rally, on Wednesday night.
Hannity is a propagandist for profit, peddling lies every night. He says he’s just a talk show host, not a journalist. But he’s injecting poison into the nation’s political bloodstream warping public attitudes about the press. I’m confident in the long run the truth will prevail.— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 2, 2018
“Hannity is a propagandist for profit, peddling lies every night. He says he’s just a talk show host, not a journalist,” Acosta tweeted.
The Fox News host has been very critical of Acosta on his show on Tuesday and Wednesday. Hannity has pointed out that while Acosta may be the victim of name calling at the rallies, there are many Trump supporters that are assaulted on a daily basis.
Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy. pic.twitter.com/IhSRw5Ui3R— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 1, 2018
“I’m going to actually give your network some advice, if you have an open mind and an open heart, maybe a little humility. The people of this country, they’re screaming at you for a reason. They don’t like your unfair, abusively biased treatment of the President of the United States,” Hannity stated on his show Tuesday night.
