Whereas Fox News hosts are in the habit of calling out hypocritical Democrats who disobey the COVID mandates they force upon others, CNN’s Jim Acosta apparently prefers calling out Fox News hosts for the supposed crime of not being hypocrites.
In a stunning segment Saturday, the frequently mocked host showed a photo of staffers at a Fox News office in Washington, D.C., all masked, as if that proved anything.
In a way, it did. D.C. has an indoor vaccine mandate, so the photo proved that Fox News genuinely believes in abiding by the rules.
However, the network also supports people’s right to voice dissent, which is why its hosts have complained about mask and vaccine mandates.
But to Acosta, this dichotomy — the hosts wearing masks because it’s required, but the hosts also speaking out against such mandates that have been issued by Democrat officials — somehow makes them look bad.
Even worse, according to him, is that the corporate top dogs at Fox News have their own vaccine mandate.
Listen to the CNN commentator’s opinion below:
The clip began with him accusing the unvaccinated of not listening to “the advice of medical professionals.”
“When it comes to the vaccine, all of a sudden, you want to play dress up, put on a lab coat and do your own research over accepting the advice of medical professionals and your research consists of listening to Tucker and the Internet?” he said.
What about the medical professionals who’ve raised concerns about the vaccine?
Acosta then displayed an image of masked Fox News staffers and dropped his allegedly bombshell “point.”
“Almost all the people in that photo — see it right now, that’s at Fox here in Washington — wearing masks. Apparently, 90 percent of company employees have been vaccinated. Might even be higher than that now,” he said.
“The Fox slogan used to be, ‘We report you decide.’ Maybe it’s, ‘We mandate, you comply.’ Perhaps now it’s, ‘Your body, your choice.’ Your body. Your choice. And just look at the choices that they made. I guess they don’t want to be replaced.”
The “replaced” part was in reference to what he’d said earlier in his monologue. He’d aimed criticism at the so-called “Great Replacement Theory,” which is the left-wing prerogative used anytime conservatives correctly note that Democrats seek to import more Democrat voters. They’ve admitted as such.
Listen to the full segment below:
Not once in the segment did Acosta point out that the woman responsible for D.C.’s mask mandate, Mayor Muriel Bowser, is a Democrat. Nor did he tell his audience about her unscrupulous behavior.
Only hours before the district’s latest mask mandate went into effect on Saturday, July 31st, she was spotted celebrating her birthday unmasked.
A photo shared to Twitter that morning by her deputy mayor for planning and economic development, John Falcicchio, showed her posing for a photo by four other people, including comedian Dave Chappelle.
The photo was snapped sometime the previous evening at Officina, an Italian restaurant in D.C., presumably before Chappelle performed that evening at The Anthem.
Another photo that surfaced showed an exceptionally large group of people gathered around the mayor, who was wearing the same dress seen in the Chappelle photo.

The photos spurred accusations that she’d purposefully scheduled the mask mandate to start on the 31st so that she could enjoy her birthday first.
Fox News is one of the few networks that called her out. It’s also one of the few networks that’s consistency called out anyone who commits the worse sin of imposing mask mandates and then violating said mandates after they’ve gone into effect.
Meanwhile, records indicate that Acosta has never once called out these Democrats for their unscrupulous behavior and hypocrisy.
It appears that to him, far more concerning than bad behavior and hypocrisy by people in power is the rule-following behavior of his competitors at Fox News — competitors whose ratings, by the way, are significantly higher than his.
Regardless, if Acosta thought that his bizarre attack on Fox News would earn him likes and ratings, it appears he thought wrong:
The new talking point at @CNN seems to be “hey look at these hypocrites at Fox who follow the law”. I’m sure @Acosta is aware that DC has an indoor mask mandate even for the vaccinated, why didn’t he share that with his viewers? pic.twitter.com/pElQOxgwxL

Again for those not really paying attention.. Jim Acosta did an entire segment on Fox News employees complying with the DC Mayor’s indoor mask mandate.
Jim Acosta did not do a segment on the mayor of DC breaking her own mask mandate.
Jim Acosta is a real life Kent Brockman. https://t.co/gtXtH5dsAA

I’m guessing that @Acosta did not have any segments on the DC mayor breaking her own mask mandate.

Wow!!! They are following the law instead of getting an exemption unlike your Hollywood friends. Haven’t heard you mention Biden who takes his mask off to lean close to talk to press then puts it back on to walk away alone. You are all hypocrites.

Mayor Bowser broker her own rule but sure guys

So @Acosta‘s beef is that they’re following the city’s mask mandate which the mayor doesn’t follow?

Funny, he’s trying to make a point of hypocrisy (that isn’t one as they all recommend people get fully vaccinated), yet the real hypocrisy is right under his nose, but because of the “D” in their profile it’s ok, they are “sophisticated” after all…
