Jim Acosta’s a victim, but Tucker Carlson isn’t?

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

The media coverage of Jim Acosta has been amazing, hasn’t it? Nobody is claiming that Acosta really violently attacked the White House aide, but what he did really wasn’t right. 

Physically attempting to stop an aide from taking away a microphone he should have relinquished is unacceptable and appropriate action was taken – but the media doesn’t see it that way.

In fact, I can’t seem to stop seeing Acosta being branded a victim in the press, while the attack against Tucker Carlson is brushed off as a nothing burger.

Antifa mobs gathered outside Carlson's house, threatening his family while chanting about knowing where he sleeps.

Why is there such bias when it comes to conservatives having their lives destroyed and their safety compromised?

Does anyone NOT understand why so many (and the number is growing rapidly) in America now ‘carry’? The left has a storied history of accepting and using violence to gain for them what the ballot box has denied. This is just another example of how the left is willing to threaten and attack anyone who does not goose step with them. 1930’s Berlin, anybody?

Acosta is a domestic terrorist plain and simple. He’s at the WH press conferences only to stir up shit, nothing more

What the president did was justified and I’m so glad he did it too. I only hope he continues to turf more left wing reporters because they offer no real value to news reporting.

If Stelter and Acosta want to get the press back, they should first confess to what happened, apologize to the President and the intern and undertake there will not be a repeat of Acosta’s behavior. Until then, Acosta can take a hike.

What a sad joke CNN has become.

IMO, Acosta should have his WH privileges restored after a period of time. When restored, Sarah Sanders and POTUS should call on him last. If he asks the same question as another talking head, the standard response should be “asked and answered Jim, have a nice day!”

Robert, the DC police should hand over footage to the Anons on 8chan to identify ANTIFA scum. They could do it!

Acosta needs to have his White House privileges revoked permanently.
His uncontrolled hatred for Trump is beyond calling it bias. And he is a Prima Dona making everything g about himself .
His hatred will definitely be transferred to others who may perpetrate violence against Trump supporters.
Enough is enough. Take the idiots stage away and he will be forgotten.

The Acosta video speaks for itself. It is clear he made physical contact with the intern in an effort to prevent her from touching the microphone he was withholding from her. His refusal to turn over the microphone when directed and his physical resistance to the intern was inappropriate. The the suspension of his pass was entirely justified. The left stream media continues to discredit itself in it’s futile efforts to deny the obvious reality of the situation. CNN calls this an assault on the freedom of the press while it tacitly supports Antifa.
