Did you miss the applause from the rest of the press pool when Trump finally got him to shut up and stop demanding an answer?


Those were trump staffers

Not exactly. The original briefing had some of that material in it, but it wasn't about damaging material in the sense that it was fact, it included that stuff as examples of the rumor mill -- a contrast between real news and fake news as it were. The dossier in question was an example of fake news.

But when it got published, it was presented as if it was real because it was in a briefing.


and that is 1000% buzzfeed and NOT CNN.


CNN followed up on the story when BuzzFeed splashed out the memos with another story explaining it as if the pages them gave it validity.

They try to get the president's attention, yes, but when another reporter has been called on and begins to ask their question, how many of them continue to try to override that choice and that reporter and continue to yell and loudly insist they be given the floor the way Acosta did?


When one specific network's reporter is being silenced in attendance with their peers, they have every right to try and get their question in a press conference. The whole game is who can get the question out when the person holding the press conference scans the crowd for a question

Wrong. It was in the brief as examples of disinformation to demonstrate the difference between good intel and bad, made-up intel. And it wasn't ever presented to him.


Where is your source for this?

Joe Biden just said that the 35 page report was given to him and Obama the same week it was given to Trump.

So yes, they were briefed on it. I would like to say a source that says otherwise.

Wait did I miss something? Perhaps I watched an edited video, what exactly did Acosta do/say that's considered rude?

Most of those reporters are not Trump's friends. That they clapped when he finally got shut down should tell you that even they were tired of his behavior in demanding an answer when Trump had clearly moved on to another reporter and was trying to let her ask her question.


Wow are you poorly mis-informed. Trump had his same cohorts in the area clapping. As usual.

when Bernie Goldberg rushes to the defense of CNN and Acosta on Fox, then maybe you should take a second and take a breath.


Why do you assume I saw Goldberg on Fox?

Isn't that your own bias in a nutshell?

No the organization has a problem with slanted reporting, Trump is looking to remedy their abuse of the freedom of the press, as he sees it.

I have a feeling this is going to be considered mild when it comes to Trumps dealings with the "old guard".

And CNN NEVER ONCE put a link to the buzzfeed 35 page dump

Which is a convenient excuse to ignore legitimate reporting and questions when they do come up.

How many press conferences have you watched?

I don't recall the press ever treating Obama like this. Once a reporter is selected to ask a question, the others quiet down and let that reporter proceed. They do not continue to bark like seals.

That behavior is entirely appropriate prior to the reporter being tapped to ask though. It happens in every press conference.

I have watched as we all, many press briefings and never have I seen anyone do what Acosta did.

touche...


However it took me aback when I had O'Reilly on last night. I think its reasy for people to jump on CNN given all their problems over the last year or two being on Clinton's payroll. But this time- They didnt do anything wrong. they never linked the story to buzzfeed. Never claimed any of the allegations were substantiated and never went into details for that very reason

Right and Acosta was fine to do what he felt he needed to get attention for question right up until Trump selected another reporter to ask, and then it's that reporter's turn to ask. It is not proper behavior to continue to yell and insist that someone ask you instead of whom they chose.

If every reporter behaved like that, there could never be a press conference because no one could ever ask a question.

Again- Acosta knew he was being ignored. His job to his employer is to fix that problem in real time.



Ive seen plenty of pressers, as have you... I never saw Obama tell fox news they were fake. Hmmm

Shep is sort of a wild card, but he can be so entertaining.

Nah, Obama just tried to bar them from the press corps entirely.

As for Acosta, why shouldn't he be ignored? Does Trump have some obligation to get drawn into discussion of a bunch of unsubstantiated rumors?

If you know the dish being set before you is poison, why bother taking a bite? There was no reason for him to do so, and he did not call the press conference to discuss mythical golden showers in Russia. He was there to talk about his divestment strategy and other topics.

The MSM with no natural predators became weak and stupid. They often fill their ranks in higher positions with people who have connections and always knew their competitors were based on the same structure with the same sources and methods. Their demise is an inevitable result of media evolution and in the short term it's entertaining to see these pompous self important people make fools of themselves again and again.
