The hyperbolic, far-from-bucolic landscape of the mainstream media is in flames. Truly, absolutely, en fuego.
There are so few sources, on television especially, that can be trusted. We know exactly why this is, and we’ve explained it innumerable times in the past, but that doesn’t mean that our message has great reach.
You see, the mainstream is in control. If a single, solitary source speaks out against injustice, they can be wholly crushed by the corporately backed giants at networks such as CNN. These agendas and this bias are undeniable. Period.
Now what we have to worry about are the self-crazed characters of the dog and pony show we called the “news”, such as Jim Acosta of the aforementioned CNN. Mr. Acosta had himself an eventful day in the White House Rose Garden today.
President Trump scolded CNN’s Jim Acosta on Friday during the president’s Rose Garden announcement that he is declaring a national emergency on the southern border, telling the reporter he has “an agenda” — before angel moms in attendance confronted the chief CNN White House correspondent.
The clash came as Acosta challenged Trump over what he described as a “disconnect” concerning his description of illegal immigration.
“You are presenting information about what’s happening at the border, calling it an invasion, talking about women with duct tape over their mouths and so on, and yet there is a lot of reporting out there, a lot of crime data out there … that shows border crossings at a near record low,” Acosta said.
Trump fired back, “That’s because of us,” as the CNN reporter attempted to talk over the president.
A tongue lashing from the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces is usually enough excitement for one day for an average person, but Jim Acosta is apparently an overachiever. Moments later, the reporter found himself in the crosshairs of angel moms who have lost loved ones at the hands of undocumented immigrants.
After that somewhat heated exchange, Angel Moms are discussing immigration with @Acosta. One mom who lost her daughter tells him “there is a huge problem..there are mothers going through this everyday.”

Hopefully Jim Acosta will be able to enjoy his long weekend, and perhaps recuperate from where he has had portions of his derrière chewed off today.
Maybe he’ll even write in his diary about it…
