As we told you a few days ago, Jim Acosta sharing a picture of Jim Acosta recording the audio version of his forthcoming book earned itself some major eye rolls:
Putting my vocal cords to the test this week, recording the audio version of my book out in June: “The Enemy of the People – A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America.” (The studio placed me in the U2 suite. Loved that!) pic.twitter.com/ub8jhrsupg

Today, Glenn Greenwald had this to say:
This self-glorifying book title from this preening, manicured, coiffed, banal, coddled corporate liberal icon is so grotesquely offensive to journalists (and activists) around the world whose work subjects them to real dangers: https://t.co/7UxdCalW1O

Color Charles C.W. Cooke unimpressed by CNN’s chief Resistance journo’s upcoming book as well:
The worst part of this is that he was writing the book while racking up anecdotes. That is, he was trying to create circumstances in which he could claim to be oppressed—the precise opposite of what people who are actually in danger do.

Ouch! Acosta certainly won’t be including those as promotional blurbs on the back cover of his book.
