Jim Acosta was among those in attendance Thursday at the Trump-hosted Social Media Summit, and CNN’s chief Resistance reporter had to sit towards the back (but at least he has his WH credentials for now):

During an event in the Rose Garden, Playboy’s White House reporter Brian Karem, who is also a CNN political analyst, was caught on video basically heckling the participants, saying they were “prone to demonic possession,” when at that point Seb Gorka took exception and approached Karem.

Here’s how Jim Acosta recounted what happened, and he shared a video that leaves out key details:

“West Wing aides did nothing when those social media figures began to verbally abuse reporters who were trying to do their jobs”? Is that really all there was to it?

Acosta’s account skipped some important context, because the full video tells a different story than just a journalist “trying to do his job”:

Well sure, there was that.

So yes, there’s more to the story than Acosta let on. Lots more.

Give it time.
