After President Trump spoke today about China, CNN’s Jim Acosta lobbied for more questions and was met by a familiar response:
Trump just pointed at CNN's @acosta and said: "you're fake news"

Trump to CNN's Acosta on why he did not do a Q & A presser "I like real news, not fake news. You're fake news."

It was difficult to hear Acosta’s reaction, but the official mainstream media “journalist” of The Resistance was proud of it:
Yes and I responded: "haven't you spread a lot of fake news yourself, sir?" https://t.co/Cz1Aks3cIj

Well, that kind of retort could backfire:
here a journalist acknowledges he's "fake news". https://t.co/zj2gWBjqQw

Can a reporter debase himself any more than this bleating attention hound? Nope. https://t.co/BlZmxge2SO

"Oh yeah? Well, the fake news store called, and they're running out of you!"

"I better tell everyone I did this or else no one will know that I did this. JIM ACOSTA!" https://t.co/RGuCjldUHC

Acosta just might be re-energized though:
Oh great, we'll be hearing about these heroics for a week. https://t.co/4pPZ5eORAX

A virtual certainty.
