On Tuesday, CNN propagandist Jim Acosta threw a temper tantrum and whined that White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took too many questions from conservatives while trashing left-wing propaganda outlets.

“Does this feel like America?” he sniveled on Twitter. “Where the White House takes q’s from conservatives, then openly trashes the news media in the briefing room.”

Translation: Waaahhhhh!!!

The Daily Caller noted:

Despite Acosta’s complaints, Sanders took questions from several reporters who work for outlets like CBS, NBC, NPR and Bloomberg News.

Acosta’s outburst was an apparent response to Sanders’ critique of CNN early in the press briefing. Sanders blasted the network over its retraction this weekend of an article which claimed that Trump transition official Anthony Scaramucci was under congressional investigation over Russian business ties.

Others also spanked Acosta:

Apparently.

I don’t think that’s the definition of a “free press.”

Acosta’s outburst, Chuck Ross said, “was an apparent response to Sanders’ critique of CNN early in the press briefing. Sanders blasted the network over its retraction this weekend of an article which claimed that Trump transition official Anthony Scaramucci was under congressional investigation over Russian business ties.”

That article was later retracted and deleted.  Three CNN employees who worked on the article resigned on Monday.

Sanders also slammed the media after a Project Veritas video was released showing a CNN producer calling the Trump-Russia conspiracy narrative “bulls**t.”

“There’s a video circulating now, whether it’s accurate or not I don’t know, but I would encourage everyone in this room, and, frankly, everyone across the country, to take a look at it,” she said. “I think if it is accurate it’s a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism.”

Here’s video of her comment:

Ross further said:

Acosta has been highly critical of the White House recently. His main beef is the administration’s scale back of its live daily press briefings. He has also expressed frustration over receiving fewer questions in press briefings than he believes he deserves.

However, Acosta was not at Tuesday’s briefing. CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny attended in his place instead.

Incidents like this, by the way, are just part of the reason CNN is now seen by many as the least-trusted name in cable news.
