Steve Krakauer, a former senior digital producer for CNN, has called out White House reporter Jim Acosta as “self-serving” and “an embarrassment on multiple levels.”

Krakauer was responding to Acosta’s latest juvenile tactic of yelling an unrelated question that President Trump had no chance of hearing, involving a false narrative, from across a room at an event touting benefits of the GOP tax cuts.

Acosta used the tragic shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland to push a narrative that the President’s rhetoric had something to do with the shooter’s actions. The reality is that the gunman had a personal vendetta against the newspaper dating back to well before Trump took office.

But that didn’t stop CNN’s resident stooge from trying to link Trump’s disdain for the media to the actions of a crazed lunatic.

“Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people!?” he repeatedly shouted, knowing full well he wasn’t getting an answer.

Somebody in the crowd even turned around to shush Acosta. That man is an American hero.

 

Krakauer took to social media and put Acosta on full blast, indicating that his willingness to propagate a false narrative is a major reason why Americans don’t trust the media.

He added that the CNN correspondent is “truly an embarrassment, on multiple levels” and that he “give(s) all good journalists a bad name.”

 

Acosta has no shame.

Even CNN host of the show “Reliable Sources,” of which the network has none, Brian Stelter, called him out for simply trying to get attention.

“When you’re at the back of the room like you were on Friday, and you shout a question to Trump and he probably can’t even hear it, isn’t it true that you’re kind of doing that just to get attention?” Stelter asked.

Acosta dodged the question and said people just don’t understand the process involved in being a noble journalist like himself.

“People don’t understand there’s a process to it and typically we adhere to that process,” he responded.

It’s a safe assumption that acting like a jackass isn’t part of the process.

Acosta bragged about his efforts, another method of getting attention as he often does, shortly thereafter.

 

Ever the warrior, aren’t we Jim?

Conservative actor James Woods took the criticism of Acosta to a whole new level when he responded to his antics on Twitter.

 

This particular court jester needs to have his media credentials revoked.
