CNN’s Jim Acosta seems to live in a dimension that is not this one. His tantrum is a perplexing one to say the least.
Journalism has collapsed for the Left and Right propaganda mills disguised as news outlets, but his fuming seems silly:
“To our friends in conservative media, Anderson, I say this: It is no guarantee that you get to stay in power forever,” Acosta told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “Another administration could come in and do the very same thing to them and say, 'Well, Donald Trump did it. Guess what, we’re going to do it to you guys, too.'”
As I recall, Barak Obama’s administration already did that.
But this is narrative spin: pretend there were no problems until the guy you don’t like won despite your targeted campaign against him. Trump won by bypassing the press for Twitter and stumping, not because of Fox News.
There is no power in journalism anymore. Acosta is fantasizing out loud, hoping all it takes is a Democrat in the White House and the press will be telling the little people what to think and that is precisely what they will think.
That ship has sailed. Journalism is dead, and the denials won’t change that reality…
