Sean Spicer Accuses CNN’s Jim Acosta of “Hurting the Profession” With His Outbursts




Sean Spicer has taken the gloves off and is going after CNN hack Jim Acosta BIG LEAGUE.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Spicer accused Acosta of “hurting the profession” with his grandstanding and outbursts at White House press meetings.
Let him have it, Sean!
In an interview, Spicer denounced Acosta in some of the harshest terms a press secretary has used — at least in public — to refer to a reporter.
“If Jim Acosta reported on Jim Acosta the way he reports on us, he’d say he hasn’t been very honest,” Spicer said.
“I think he’s gone well beyond the role of reporter and steered into the role of advocate. He’s the prime example of a [reporter in a] competitive, YouTube, click-driven industry,” Spicer added.
“He’s recognized that if you make a spectacle on the air then you’ll get more airtime and more clicks. . . . If I were a mainstream, veteran reporter, I’d be advocating for him to knock it off. It’s hurting the profession.”
This is actually what Farhi found, that Acosta’s over-the-top routine isn’t drawing standing ovations from colleagues:
A curious sidelight to all this has been the relatively tepid support Acosta has received from his fellow White House journalists.
Only a few have publicly spoken out in support of him.
There have been no walkouts or calls for boycotting the briefings (although Acosta has suggested “collective action” to get the cameras back).
