I fail to see where "the media lost their shit."  In this case, the man who denied touching her is on film GRABBING her.  In the Acosta case, his arm did brush hers, but at no time did he GRAB her. 

All ultra righties are liars.

Watch the video. Acosta replied to Trump, "Mr. President, the caravan is NOT an invasion. It's a group of migrants blah blah blah blah."

That's not asking a question. Acosta was literally injecting his own opinion.


No, he was challenging an answer that was at best bogus, at worst an outright lie, with a fact, not an opinion.

That is your opinion. As President Trump appropriately stated, they have a difference of opinions.

You see Acosta's definition as "fact" through biased eyes.

A reporter is supposed to ask questions, not lecture their subjects.

No, Acosta said "Pardon me, ma'am."   I saw what happened.  Mojo has it right.


And for what was he asking her pardon? Refusing to give her the mic and pushing her arm away like a petulant child.

Give it up.  Acosta was the ONLY person who acted unprofessionally in that situation.

Number one, Der Fuhrer does not, never has, never will, welcome tough questions.  That's why he likes Fox so much.

Number two, Acosta did not put his hands on the intern.

Number three, for anyone in Trump's WH to utter that highlighted statement is beyond the pale.  I mean, he's the proverbial self admitted pussy grabber!


What garbage.  1) Acosta didn't ask any tough questions, he just whined as usual. 2) Acosta's hand's were occupied with a childish death grip on the microphone, but used his arm to rough up the intern. 3) Other than some locker room braggadocio, do you have any actual proven instances of Trump doing any such thing?

Leftists had no problem with an admitted coke head who thought there were 58 states like Obama (our failed first black POTUS) or an actual sexual predator like ole' drop trouser Bill C. as our president, but they never, ever let go of a single quote from an old TV interview by Trump.

Not all questions are the ones you seem to specialize in: the ones that demand a simple yes or no answer. Intelligent questions, on the other hand, often require a set-up so that the context of the question is clear. But it's also important not ask leading questions or ones that preclude an answer. I didn't see Acosta making those kinds of errors; but Todt kept interrupting, insulting, and evading. He seem most outraged at the question of whether he was demonizing immigrants (and it's so obvious that he is), or why he's categorizing a slow moving march hundreds of miles away from our border as an "invasion". True answers to such questions would be very embarrassing for him.

He was advocating.  He was "challenge"ing the president.  Reporters ought to be asking questions of fact and reporting the answers.  They shouldn't be advocating or challenging.

Advocacy and challenging are certainly legitimate acts, even duties, of a free press.  But reporting ought to be separate from advocacy.  Acosta should not be seen as a reporter.  He should be seen as an advocate.  there is nothing wrong with being an advocate, but it is wrong to do so while purporting to be a reporter.

A "reporter" is someone who asks "what do you think of the migrant caravan", and reports the president's answer, "the president stated that he believes it to be an invasion with ulterior motives...others believe it to be peaceful immigrants seeking a better life".   An advocate "challenges" the president by laying out why they think that this group is not seeking to do harm and shouldn't be considered an invasion and the president is wrong.

All one has to do is look at Acosta's Twitter feed to see his political bias. Not exactly the definition of an objective reporter.
