Jim Acosta Comes Right Out And Admits CNN Will Cover Biden Differently Than Trump

Jim Acosta of CNN has made an ass out of himself attacking Trump at every opportunity over the last four years.

That’s all over now. Acosta is already admitting that Biden will get better treatment.

We all knew this but it’s nice of Acosta to come right out and admit it.

The Washington Times reports:

CNN’s Acosta, Tapper say media coverage will change under Biden

CNN’s Jim Acosta and Jake Tapper both predicted in new interviews that the media will change under the incoming Biden administration, arguing that the new president will likely provide for less combative coverage.

Mr. Acosta, the network’s chief White House correspondent who has repeatedly made headlines for his confrontations with President Trump and even wrote a book about his contentious relationship with the current administration, told The Atlantic in a piece published Tuesday that he “couldn’t stomach” the president’s attacks on the press and his “fake news” tagline.

“The drama has made him famous,” The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins reports, “but Acosta said he doesn’t expect to bring the same crusading style to his coverage of the next administration.”

“I don’t think the press should be trying to whip up the Biden presidency and turn it into must-see TV in a contrived way,” Mr. Acosta told the outlet.

“If that sounds like a double standard,” Mr. Coppins reports, “Acosta told me it’s not partisan — it’s a matter of professional solidarity. In his view, Trump’s campaign to discredit the press has constituted a ‘nonstop national emergency,’ one that required a defiant response.”

This could backfire on Acosta.

The people who work at CNN hold themselves in such high regard.

They’re like heroes. Just ask them.
