CNN’s Jim Acosta took another jab at President Trump. In a new interview, Acosta argued that the media has been more honest with the American public than Trump.
“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,” Jim Acosta told Publishers Weekly.
In addition, he also defended the press, arguing that, unlike Trump, the media are issuing corrections if they make a mistake.
“We have been far more honest and straightforward with the American people than President Trump has,” Acosta said.
“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.“
Fox News reported that the interview came as Acosta released his memoir titled “The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell Truth in America.” The book itself basically recounts Acosta’s time covering the Trump White House.
