Ladies and gentlemen, it’s the “Jim Acosta Show!” Starring the one and only Jim Acosta.
Jim Acosta is doing his afternoon opinion show during the briefing again. But with a different hair color.

On today’s episode, our hero tries to get White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to acknowledge that Donald Trump is responsible for the mail bomb scare. Let’s see how that goes!
Sanders tells CNN's Jim Acosta: "I think it's irresponsible of a news organization like yours to blame responsibility of a pipe bomb that was not sent by the president, not just blame the president, but blame members of his administration for those heinous acts." pic.twitter.com/ZR8flNoWal

.@Acosta: "Shouldn't you have the guts, Sarah, to state which outlets, which journalists are the enemy of the people?"

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Real Journalist™ more insufferable than Jim Acosta. He’s actually trying to paint himself and CNN as the victims. That’s some chutzpah, right there.
White House message, delivered twice so far by Sarah Sanders: “The very first action the president did was condemn these heinous acts. The very first thing that the media did was condemn the president.”

Sanders defends President Trump against those who say he has created a tense political environment following recent acts of violence: “You can’t start putting the responsibility of the individuals on anybody but the individual who carries out the crime” pic.twitter.com/muk8Lobw9v

Just because the truth hurts doesn’t mean it’s not the truth.
Jim Acosta: are you willing to give us a list of who you/POTUS consider an enemy of the people?
Sarah Sanders: "I think those individuals know who they are."

No, she’s not. CNN dedicated hours upon hours of programming — not to mention graphics work — to blaming Donald Trump for the mail bomb scare. CNN’s president issued a statement explicitly holding Trump and Sarah Sanders personally responsible for the threats (despite the fact that John Brennan, and not CNN, was the intended target of one of those threats).
But Jim Acosta still thinks what he and his network have done constitutes journalism. Please.
CNN's Jim Acosta is once again making the White House press briefing all about himself

Jim Acosta back at it again making the entire Press Briefing about himself. Such a baby. Glad to see Sarah Sanders back at the podium.

Glad to see her refusing to put up with his crap.
Jim Acosta is the worst.
He's just not acting in good faith. He's acting in self-interest.
That's my opinion. I am open to possibility that I'm wrong. But man.
— Jason Howerton (@jason_howerton) October 29, 2018
You’re not wrong.
Acosta needs to stop trying to make himself a martyr and accept responsibility for his own role in the media’s fall from grace. Until then, he can expect to continue to get his butt handed to him on a silver platter.
'Laughably false'! CNN steps on every last rake in mad rush to paint Sarah Sanders as a liar [pics] https://t.co/j4I9L1A9LB
