    Ex-CNN producer blasts Jim Acosta for 'self-serving antics'

    Ex-CNN producer blasts Jim Acosta for 'self-serving antics'

    By Dom Calicchio | Fox News
    1 hour ago

    A former CNN producer took to Twitter on Friday to blast Jim Acosta, the network’s White House correspondent, for what he called Acosta’s “self-serving antics,” saying they “give all good journalists a bad name.”

    The posts by Steve Krakauer, a former senior digital producer for the network who is now is a top executive at Commerce House, a Dallas-based advertising firm, were prompted by a question that Acosta shouted to President Donald Trump on Friday during a White House event on the economy and tax cuts.

    Trump used the event as an opportunity to extend condolences to the victims and survivors of Thursday’s tragedy at the offices of the Capital Gazette, where five employees were slain by a gunman who was later taken into custody.

    Acosta tried to link the shooting to past criticisms that Trump had leveled toward members of the media, including calling them “the enemy of the people.”

    As the audience applauded at the end of the president’s speech, Acosta shouted from the back of the room:

    “Mr. President, will you stop calling us the enemy of the people, sir? Will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people, sir? Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people, sir?”

    The question drew no response from Trump.

    “Truly an embarrassment, on multiple levels,” Krakauer tweeted about Acosta’s performance.

    He continued in a subsequent tweet: “On a day journalists could honor the memory of fellow reporters tragically killed due to a deranged person with a vendetta going back years, Acosta tries to shift the blame to Trump,” Krakauer wrote.

    After the White House event, Acosta tweeted about his own performance: “I tried to ask the president if he would stop calling us the enemy of the people. He did not respond,” Acosta wrote.

    He added: “We also had a few folks who shushed is in the audience. Of course we are not going to be shushed.”

    Acosta is no stranger to controversy. Earlier in the week, the reporter drew shouts of “Go home!,” and “Fake news, Jim!” at a Trump rally in South Carolina.

    One rallygoer, identified as Maria Rojas, personally confronted Acosta, telling him he doesn't respect the country.

    “I do respect the United States, yes I do," Acosta told the woman in videos posted by an Associated Press reporter.

    Anyone wanting more opportunity to make up their minds about Acosta can tune in Sunday to CNN’s “Reliable Sources” program, where host Brian Stelter is scheduled to interview his CNN colleague, Jim Acosta.

    Fox News’ Nicole Darrah contributed to this story.

    Could at least some semblance of sanity be returning? I sure hope so.

    Just stay the course and stay tuned!! Great things are happening! Hey did you hear about Benjamin Watson and some other NFL players responding to Trump's Pardon Challenge? They want to work him to release through clemency more nonviolent drug offenders from prison who have already served long long prison sentences. Google and check it out. Watson was on Fox tonight, Shannon Bream's show, talking about it and Trump's staff is looking into it, could be thousands of people under a blanket type of clemency under certain list of conditions. I would so love to see that.

    So you support a blanket amnesty for thousands of convicted felon criminals without knowing the details of each criminal offense or criminal record? SMH.

    I support a blanket type clemency (not amnesty) for non-violent drug offenders (criminal offense) who have already served long, long prison sentences under a certain list of conditions (criminal records, US citizenship, behavior in prison, length of sentence, circumstance of conviction, ability to make it on their own if released, family support, etc., etc., etc., etc.). I also support a pardon for any of those who deserve it based on the circumstances of their conviction.

    What the US has done to US citizens with its failed and futile War on Drugs is a national disgrace and needs to be corrected as soon as possible.

    I am extremely grateful to this group of NFL players for their worthy platform and working with the President to correct this injustice.

    Oh, please.

    Most of those in our prisons for drug offenses are there for trafficking, distribution, and manufacturing. Very few people end up in prison for simple possession unless they have a long criminal record. Do the crime, be prepared to do the time.
