CNN’s Jim Acosta had another meltdown recently and it may be his most pathetic attempt for attention.
During a recent broadcast on his CNN program, which is struggling mightily based on viewership numbers, Acosta whined for several minutes about Fox News and the news that the conservative network is covering.
“That tale from the border didn’t just border on BS, this was USDA Grade-A bullsh*t,” Acosta said about the conservative network.
“And the reporter who wrote the story resigned, claiming she was forced to make it up. But the damage was done, pumped out over the airwaves at the bullsh*t factory also known as Fox News,” he added.
“Now you may want to laugh this off, as the old saying goes, while the truth is still lacing up its boots but the lies these days are moving at the speed of light while spreading so much darkness,” he said.
From Fox News:
CNN’s viewership is suffering three weeks into the experiment of giving former White House correspondent Jim Acosta weekend anchor duties.
Acosta, who become a household name and hero of the anti-Trump “resistance” due to his combative style of questioning, was given a gig anchoring the weekend edition of “CNN Newsroom” between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET on Saturdays and 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET on Sundays.
The Acosta-anchored Saturday programs have averaged 796,000 viewers since the former White House correspondent took over on April 3. Over the first three months of 2021, CNN averaged 1.141 million viewers on Saturdays during the same time slot, indicating a 30% drop in viewership with Acosta behind the anchor desk
But the decline isn’t simply a product of CNN’s brief post-election ratings bump at the beginning of the year.
CNN averaged 1.247 million viewers on Saturdays between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET during all of 2020, 36% more than the average for the Acosta-anchored programs.
Acosta’s viewership issue is worse on Sundays, when his edition of “CNN Newsroom” has averaged 710,000 viewers. That’s a staggering 41% drop from the network’s average of 1.196 million viewers in the timeslot over the first three months of 2021.
CNN averaged 1.149 million viewers on Sundays between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET over 2020, indicating that Acosta has lost 38% of last year’s audience.
Beyond that, Acosta spends most of his time making outrageous comments.
Last week, Acosta suggested that Fox News host Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist.
Before that, Acosta shared an image on social media of himself getting the vaccine and his shirt has gained a lot of attention.
