CNN reporter Jim Acosta thinks conservative media are un-American and should be censored at White House press briefings. Just like they were under the Obama administration.

That’s what he suggested in an inane tweet as part of his daily anti-Trump whine-fest. Acosta has repeatedly violated a key rule in journalism, which is: Don’t make yourself the story.

For the past two weeks, Acosta has trolled White House press secretary Sean Spicer and deputy secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in person or on Twitter every single day.

Last week, Acosta was smacked down by Sanders after he complained incessantly about new White House rules drastically limiting on-camera pressers in a bid to cut down on reporter showboating on live TV.

On Monday, Acosta hijacked a White House presser by repeatedly shouting at Sean Spicer to turn the cameras back on. While doing this, he rudely interrupted reporters from other media outlets who were patiently waiting their turn to ask questions.

On Tuesday, Acosta threw another childish tantrum by tweeting his outrage that Sarah Huckabee Sanders took several questions from conservative media at a press briefing he didn’t even attend. Acosta’s CNN colleague Jeff Zeleny went in his place.

“Does this feel like America?” Acosta bleated on Twitter. “Where the White House takes q’s from conservatives, then openly trashes the news media in the briefing room.”

Conservative editor Curtis Houck immediately shut Acosta down by reminding him that Sanders had also fielded questions from liberal media outlets NBC, CBS, NPR, and Bloomberg.

Acosta’s latest outburst came just hours after an explosive undercover video showed a veteran CNN producer admitting that CNN is relentlessly pushing the fake Trump-Russia hoax purely for ratings.

The CNN producer, John Bonifield, admitted that many of his colleagues know there’s no evidence to support the fake-news narrative, but CNN is promoting the propaganda around the clock because it’s a ratings cash cow.

The irony is that despite these shameless stunts, CNN’s ratings still lag far behind that of its rivals Fox News and MSNBC.

Jim Acosta’s daily whining has become so unhinged and shrill that Fox News anchor Sean Hannity smacked him down in a segment on his show Tuesday night.

“One of the top pushers of fake news is combative and whiny senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta,” Hannity said.

Earlier this week, three CNN reporters were fired after publishing a bogus story linking former Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci to the Russia investigations. Scaramucci had threatened to a file a $100 million lawsuit before CNN decided to can its reckless reporters.

Meanwhile, Twitter had a field day skewering Acosta by reminding him that it was just two weeks ago that he pushed a fake news story claiming President Trump did not visit Congressman Steve Scalise in the hospital after he got shot by a crazed leftist gunman. Acosta’s claim was 100% false.

Given these monumental lapses in journalistic ethics, Acosta should be grateful that CNN’s White House press credentials haven’t been revoked yet.
