CNN Links to Own 2017 Report Disproving Charlottesville Hoax; ‘Very Fine People’ Referred to Statue

CNN failed to correct, retract, or apologize for its repeated false reports in recent weeks that President Donald Trump had referred to neo-Nazis as “very fine people” in his remarks about the Charlottesville, Virginia, riot in 2017. But on Tuesday, CNN linked to its own report at the time that reported, accurately, that Trump had used “very fine people” to refer to protesters for and against the removal of a historic statue, not to neo-Nazis. The context was a CNN report Tuesday about a new book about the Trump administration…

CNN’s Jim Acosta Pushes Charlottesville Hoax at White House Briefing

CNN continued Monday to push the false claim that President Donald Trump referred to neo-Nazis as “very fine people” in his remarks about the Charlottesville riot in August 2017. The network’s White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders: “But the president used rhetoric after Charlottesville, saying there are ‘very fine people’ on both sides in Charlottesville, essentially suggesting that there are very fine people in the Nazis.” Sanders responded: “That’s not at all what the president was saying.” She could have added that Trump had condemned…

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta claimed Thursday that President Donald Trump referring to the media as the “enemy of the people” could help create an environment where journalists are killed. Speaking before the Oxford Union Society in the United Kingdom, Acosta made several attempts at justifying his confrontational style when it comes to covering the Trump administration, which has not only garnered strong rebukes from the president, but even some of his own establishment media colleagues. In his remarks, Acosta criticized President Trump for characterizing news organizations which have a partisan bend against him as…

Nolte: Fox News Anchor Julie Banderas Melts Down After Mild Criticism from Trump

Fox News anchor Julie Banderas melted down Monday on Twitter after President Trump criticized a couple of Fox reporters over their border coverage. In a spectacle that has become the norm from preening CNN’s neurotics such as Jim Acosta and Jake Tapper, Banderas made a public fool of herself, getting all screechy and overheated about the president’s criticism. All Trump said (via Twitter) was, “I think @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner @FoxNews have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC!” Never thought I’d say this…

An excerpt from former West Wing official Cliff Sims’ new book — provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of the book’s public release on Monday — shows how CNN’s Jim Acosta peddled unsubstantiated misinformation from a disgruntled ex-Trump campaign aide about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as part of the network’s effort to push the Stormy Daniels scandal story.

CNN’s Jim Acosta: Shutdown Deal ‘One of The Biggest Tactical Defeats’ of Trump Presidency

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta remarked Friday that President Donald Trump’s plan to re-open the government was “one of the biggest tactical defeats” of his presidency and that the White House was like Alice in Wonderland over their celebratory mood. “You could see the vice president, you could see Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, and senior adviser, cabinet officials, other top officials, applauding as if this was some sort of victorious moment–celebration. That was just right out of Alice in Wonderland,” Acosta said. “To see the White House and…
