Acosta obviously has some pent up hostility. He is a time bomb waiting to explode.
He needs a long vacation and some "couch" time.
Conservatives always complain about government control, yet they defend a president from trying to silence a reporter's legitimate questions!!! They defend a president who continues to call the press the enemy of the people! All this whining about Jim Acosta vicious attacks, yet doesn't Trump himself engage in vicious attacks??? ...name calling, belittling people, continues to call-out CNN as "fake news" at every press conference, makes fun of a handicapped reporter, and refuses to answer hot button questions related to his own contradictions.

Ah yes legitimate questions you mean the same questions that have being asked by CNN for at least 400 times over and over again?
Your side meanwhile aka the far Liberals have no problems being racist towards white people and making fun of war veterans.
Trump didn't like Acosta's temerity. Trump got called out for dehumanizing people (in ads) who are migrants and didn't like it. How dare someone question him.
An elected government official is way more important than a reporter
Freedom of Press
Freedom of the press protects the right to obtain and publish information or opinions without government censorship or fear of punishment. Censorship occurs when the government examines publications and productions and prohibits the use of material it finds offensive. Freedom of press applies to all types of printed and broadcast material, including books, newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, films and radio and television programs.
The Constitution's framers provided the press with broad freedom. This freedom was considered necessary to the establishment of a strong, independent press sometimes called "the fourth branch" of the government.An independent press can provide citizens with a variety of information and opinions on matters of public importance.
According to the current state of law, freedom of speech does not protect the following: Speech that contains "fighting words" (insulting or abusive language that is likely to cause "an immediate violent response"); Obscenities; Language or communication directed to inciting, producing or urging the commission of a crime; Defamation - words or communication that are false and untrue and are intended to injure the character and reputation of another person; Abusive, obscene or harassing telephone calls; Loud speech and loud noise meant by volume to disturb others or to create a clear and present danger of violence.

An elected government official is way more important than a reporter....any reporter.
And here we see the right sell their soul (and everything about their prior beliefs) wholesale. What a sad day in America.
LOL, these questions have to be asked over and over again because Trump won't answer them or his answers are blatant lies and not based on actual fact!! A reporter isn't doing his or her job if they don't press for truthfulness. This is a typical response from a Trump supporter trying to cover for a president that has a proven track record of lying and twisting the truth. (Deny this? All you have to do is search for the numerous YouTube recorded videos proving Trump's lies and contradictions! I can just imagine how you would react if this was a liberal president doing the same thing, lol. Wake-up and smell the coffee!
