As we told you last night, CNN did some editorializing during President Trump’s rally in Wisconsin. Trump called for civility and also said the media should contribute to a more civil tone. It obviously wasn’t enough for Jim Acosta, who joined his network in serving up personal opinions about what was said during Trump’s rally:
Trump talked about the bombs sent to former public officials at his rally in Wisconsin. But once again he didn’t mention CNN. On top of all that he criticized the “media” for coverage he doesn’t like. And, of course, he took no responsibility for his own rhetoric.

Donald Trump Jr. fired back with a reminder about rhetoric:
Jim, did you or your colleagues take any responsibility for your rhetoric in constantly calling my family Racists and Nazis for 2 years when my wife actually opened an exploding envelope of white powder intended for me? What about when it happend to my brother? https://t.co/TpMTk17x9W

The last thing Acosta or the MSM in general would ever acknowledge is that the media’s irresponsible rhetoric & reporting also contributes to the eroding political climate. But Acosta’s gonna Acosta:
Q: why would a ‘journalist’ demand anyone apologize for something before we have all the facts. Jim here, is illustrating why the media is a complete joke now.

When will the media and Democrats (but I repeat myself) take responsibility for their own rhetoric?

“Editorializing” is the new “journalism.”
