This week at President Trump's rally in Tampa, Florida, Jim Acosta specifically and CNN in general were the subject of an angry display by Trump supporters who shouted, cursed, and mocked the “news” network and its reporters, as well as the main stream media in general.
"CNN SUCKS!" Was the battle cry, then members of the crowd took selfies with their chief antagonist, Jim Acosta.
Yelling at the press is not unique or new in American politics. As a matter of fact, it is the American way! Compared to previous administrations, this week's display of displeasure for Acosta and CNN was a big fat nothing burger.
Words. Just words.
Now, let’s go back to 2008 and look at how the left treated the one media outlet Barack Obama didn't like.
Take a look:
Obama wasn't asked about it. No Democrat candidate was made to disown it. The media didn't cover it. Nothing to see here. I'm telling you, if were not for double standards media would have no standards at all.
