The White House is not letting CNN off the hook any more, are they?! This time around Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary, has accused CNN’s Jim Acosta of making a “spectacle” of reporting this past weekend.

Acosta stated, “When the president of the United States calls the press ‘fake news’ and ‘the enemy of the American people,’” Acosta said for the piece, “I think that’s when you have to get tough and ask the hard questions.”

To which Spicer replied to, “If Jim Acosta reported on Jim Acosta the way he reports on us, he’d say he hasn’t been very honest,” Spicer said. “I think he’s gone well beyond the role of reporter and steered into the role of advocate.”

And I love it! I truly feel like no one has held a light up to mainstream media in a very long time and no one, in any “power” sense of the meaning, has held them accountable. Now, they have to deal with a President and his administration that is willing to do just that! KUDOS!

As written for The Daily Caller by Amber Athey:

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer accused CNN’s Jim Acosta of making a “spectacle” of reporting in a Sunday interview with the Washington Post.

Acosta was the subject of a Washington Post feature in Sunday’s “Style” section because of his constant criticism of the current White House communications team.

“When the president of the United States calls the press ‘fake news’ and ‘the enemy of the American people,’” Acosta said for the piece, “I think that’s when you have to get tough and ask the hard questions.”

Sean Spicer didn’t hold back his criticism of the senior White House correspondent, accusing him of “hurting the profession” of journalism.
