Karma is boomeranging big-time on CNN’s Jim Acosta, who got heckled at a Trump rally in Florida. Acosta was barraged with chants of “CNN sucks!” and “Tell the truth!” by the fired-up crowd.
President Trump was in Tampa to stump for Congressman Ron DeSantis, who’s running for governor. As Acosta was filing a report, the audience shouted: “You’re a liar!,” “Fake news!” and “Traitor.”
Trump supporters around the United States are furious at Acosta, who repeatedly pulls clownish stunts in a bid to undermine President Trump and make himself the headline.
Millions of Americans are also fed-up with CNN, which attacks Trump around the clock and pushes false anti-Trump narratives in a bid to pander to its small liberal audience. CNN has had to retract, correct, or clarify many of its fake-news stories after the truth eventually emerged.

CNN has been criticized as the left-wing propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, and the public is starting to turn away from its nonstop biased coverage.
As BizPac Review reported, Acosta was heckled last month at a South Carolina Trump rally, where the crowd shouted, “Go home Jim!” and “Fake news!” hours before Trump arrived at the venue.

A 2016 Gallup poll showed that 94% of Americans do not trust the media to be accurate or unbiased, and CNN is proving them right.

Naturally, Jim Acosta tried to play the victim to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
“You can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here saying things like ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home,’ and ‘fake news,'” Acosta said (see video below starting at 3:35).
He continued: “Wolf, obviously all of things are false. We’re staying right here. We’re going to do our job and report on this rally to all of our viewers tonight.”
Jim Acosta tries to play the victim and push the narrative that President Trump opposes the media. In reality, Trump and his supporters oppose biased liberal propaganda masquerading as straight “news.”
For example, MSNBC is an openly leftist cable news network and its reporters don’t get heckled like Acosta does. This is because MSNBC is upfront about its liberal bias, whereas CNN disingenuously promotes itself as objective news when it clearly isn’t.
Acosta has also brought a lot of the public animus onto himself. In addition to barking questions out of turn at numerous Trump events, he was caught on a hot mic bragging that he had intentionally disrupted the peace summit between North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and President Trump as petty revenge.
Acosta was heard bragging: “Hey, if they’re not going to let me in the f*cking meeting, that’s what happens. That’s the way it goes, baby.”

Jim, if you keep up these unprofessional, ridiculous antics, don’t be surprised that the American public turns on you. Because “that’s the way it goes, baby.”
