Most of the liberal media has let their mask of neutrality completely slip since the 2016 election, anyone who has been paying attention already knows this.
Now CNN’s Jim Acosta is now trying to justify this in a new book.
The Daily Caller reports:
CNN’S ACOSTA: ‘NEUTRALITY FOR THE SAKE OF NEUTRALITY’ DOESN’T WORK IN THE TRUMP ERA
Jim Acosta argues in his new book that “neutrality” doesn’t work for reporters in the age of Trump.
Excerpts of Acosta’s upcoming book, “Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America,” was published in The Guardian over the weekend.
He admits to “grandstanding” and “showboating” in the book, while adding that he “opts for the bait” when given the opportunity to question President Donald Trump.
“Neutrality for the sake of neutrality doesn’t really serve us in the age of Trump,” he writes in the book, scheduled for release next month.
Former CNN reporter Dylan Byers weighed in on Acosta’s comments saying, “There are a lot of really, really hardworking journalists at CNN who strive to be fair, impartial, responsible journalists and I’m guessing some of them aren’t crazy about this from Acosta.”

So he admits he’s not a journalist. He’s a loud mouthed activist

If @CNN were a journalistic enterprise, it would reprimand @Acosta and reassign him to the mailroom – if not fire him outright.

Acosta is knowingly playing the part of one of Trump's foils in the President reality TV show. He's basically what Omarosa was on the Apprentice…
Zucker was involved in that scam too 🤔

The absurdity of that comment is the implication that he and the media were ever neutral.

That last point is the most important one.
