The naming of Acosta as the biggest hater came before he declared himself a grandstander.
A new book, “Unmasked -- Big Media's War Against Trump,” has named CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta as member of the media who “hates” President Trump the most.
“Unmasked,” by L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham of the Media Research Center, hits stores on June 4 but Fox News obtained an advanced copy. The conservative authors include a subjective Top 10 list of “the biggest Trump bashers in the press” and CNN’s White House reporter takes the crown.
“Jim Acosta is our winner. We suspect he would protest if he wasn’t,” Bozell and Graham wrote. “He would proudly wear the moniker of the face of the Resistance if it was bestowed on him by us, but we won’t do that. No man in the world of journalism has made a mockery of his profession quite like this man.”
But the “Unmasked” authors aren’t the only ones bothered by Acosta’s antics. One current CNN employee recently told Fox News that threats to the free press should obviously be taken seriously and reporters need to seek the truth and report it – but Acosta may no longer be right for the job.
