Blowjob-Lipped Bitchboy Jim Acosta Cries About Being Yelled At by an Administration He's Constantly Yelled At

I've said this a hundred times before, so I won't belabor the point: An industry that exists on nothing but criticism and accusation and hostility to everyone outside the industry -- the media, of course -- has no right of any kind to complain about criticism and accusations and hostility directed against them.

Obviously.

There's only one way to justify this double-standard, and it's the same one the left always makes on behalf of its client groups: You can't criticize the media because they're too important. Also, you could encourage "harm" against them, which we cannot allow, and you must be silenced rather than even hypothetically, fractionally increasing the risk of "harm" directed at the media.

Note that they don't believe that they themselves are required to tone down their own hostile rhetoric at their out-group enemies for fear of fractionally increasing the risk of violence against those people.

In other words: they are asserting Aristocratic Privileges, special licenses, indulgences, and immunities that the Commoners expressly do not have. If the media increases the chances that some lunatic might, say, attempt to assassinate Steve Scalise and a dozen other Republican Congressmen: Oh well. The media's Aristocratic speech is too important to squelch for such trivial considerations, and the lives of Republican congressmen are too cheap to worry about much.

On the other hand, if Trump points at a CNN reporter and says "There's the #FakeNews media, at it again," well, his speech must be squelched because his speech is nearly valueless and the safety and security of the Aristocratic Press Corps is too important a thing to even hypothetically risk for speech by a mere president.

The media cheers the threats and harassments their fellow travelers make against Republicans -- some of them mere citizens -- while insisting it's a Crime Against the State to insult the media.

Fuck you. I'll start worrying about your precious little well-fed lives when you give a moment's thought to the lives of those you paint laser-targets on to guide your fellow traveler lunatic-missiles towards.

So here we have yet another insistence of Aristocratic Privilege -- Jim Acosta, who's made his semi-celebrity by yelling impertinently at White House officials, is claiming he's a free speech martyr due to an administration official yelling back at him.

White House staff singled out CNN’s Jim Acosta after he shouted questions at President Trump following a photo spray in the Oval Office.

Acosta shouted, "Mr. President, if there was no collusion, why does Rudy Giuliani consider there to be no crime in collusion?" "Make your way out," a staffer yelled to all of the reporters packed in the room. The staffer then singled out Acosta, who is known for shouting questions at inappropriate times at the White House. "Let's go. Move, Jim, let's go. Keep going, Jim. Let's go. Jim, we’re leaving. Come on, Jim," the side yelled.

Soon after the event, Acosta was on CNN complaining about getting yelled at "at the top of their lungs" by White House staff.


Also, Jim Acosta seemed to be shouting just as loud as the (female) aide telling him to move on. Furthermore, the female aide have every right to tell him to move on -- he was in the White House with the White House's permission, and when that permission ended, it was in fact time for him to "move on" and "go."



By the way, I heard a story that you should keep your ears open for, which the rest of the media seems to be embargoing. Typical stuff -- stuff that would be the lead on CNN for days on end is not reported by anyone in the media, because it concerns someone in the media.

Being a member of The Guild has its privileges.

Update: Well, gee, it's not really entirely embargoed -- the Post mentioned it -- and it was actually broken last year.

Though I have heard a new little wrinkle.
