    Jim Acosta has 'never witnessed' news outlets trying 'to damage one particular party'

    ---
    CNN’s Jim Acosta says he has never witnessed an instance where new outlets try to “damage one particular party or help another.”

    The network’s chief White House correspondent — a persistent critic of President Trump — told Publishers Weekly magazine that his peers, from what he’s witnessed, have always been straight shooters when it comes to covering the White House.

    “Is there a grain of truth to claims of biased coverage of President Trump and his supporters by the mainstream media?” the magazine asked in an interview published Tuesday.

    “I have never witnessed a concerted effort by any news organization to take a stand one way or the other on a political issue, to damage one particular party or help another,” he responded. “We have been far more honest and straightforward with the American people than President Trump has. Are there times when we fall short? Sure. But the press issues corrections. When was the last time you saw the president issue a correction or a clarification? It’s a rare thing for Donald J. Trump.”

    Mr. Acosta’s response came while promoting his book “The Enemy of the People,” which excoriates the Trump administration.

    Just another example of how the media elitists are out of touch with the average Joe.

    During the McCain/Obama race and later Romeny/Obama, there studies done that showed that for every one positive story about Obama's opponents, there were four about Obama, and for every one negative story about Obama, there were four about his opponents.

    I'm not sure what the coverage disparity was between Hillary and Trump.

    This guy is out of touch with reality, in general.

    The problem is that Trump consistently says really lame and stupid things - like that on his watch the CIA would not have been allowed to recruit Jim Jong Un's brother - and they call him on it.

    So if a person is deluded into thinking Trump doesn't consistently say really lame and stupid things, they tend think the reporters are biased against him.

    Yet even if that is true, Acosta's remarks still are not. The MSM has been focused on and attacking Trump for the last 3 years. This thread is about Acosta and his comments, not what Trump has done or not done. And it is not a serious thread Jim, so lighten up.

    ox is under the same delusion as Acosta, that Trump really is the most horrible person ever, and that the media is doing nothing more than reporting the truth dispassionately and without bias, which I'm not sure how anybody could say that with a straight face.
