CNN's Acosta: Sean Hannity Is Propagandist

CNN’s Jim Acosta hit back at Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday for saying that attendees at President Trump’s rally were right for heckling the CNN correspondent.

According to The Hill, the White House correspondent appeared to be responding to Hannity’s comments siding with attendees at a Trump rally in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday, who heckled Acosta.

"I’m actually going to give your network some advice, if you have an open mind and an open heart," Hannity said during the opening monologue of his show on Tuesday after the rally, addressing Acosta. "The people of this country are screaming at you for a reason. They don’t like your unfair, abusively biased treatment of the president of the United States."

"If you want to earn the respect of all Americans, not the coastal elites in California, San Francisco and New York, maybe try reporting the entire story and getting rid of the bias," Hannity continued. "Maybe examine why people are saying this to us."

Acosta, who faced boos and chants of “CNN sucks” at the rally, tweeted after the event that the response to CNN's presence was a “sad scene.”

Tom's Take: It's Acosta who continues to insist he's non-partisan and objective.

  1. Worst of all, Tom, Acosta is a "reporter". Hannity is a commentator. How can a reporter have such a blatantly one-sided political profile?
