Acosta’s rage comes after historic declines in ratings for the company.
“It’s that time of the year, the days are getting shorter, it’s cold outside — it’s also when we start looking back at the past year,” Acosta began. “And what a year it was over on Fox — or, as I’ve described it this year, the bullsh*t factory. Just in the last week, they’ve churned out so much BS it’s hard to keep up.”
After playing out-of-context clips from Laura Ingraham and Jesse Watters, Acosta turned his focus to the most popular name in cable tv – Tucker Carlson.
“We once honored you with the distinction of bullsh*t factory employee of the month,” he said of Carlson. “But now that 2021 is coming to an end, we decided to honor you as our first-ever BS factory employee of the year,” Acosta continued.
[…]“Fox News can’t run away from Trump or Trumpism. Fox is Trump, and Trump is Fox. This idea that Rupert Murdoch is suddently going to change course, pull the plug now, I’m calling bullsh*t on that one, too,” he concluded.
Isn’t it sad that Acosta can’t let go of his obsession of President Trump and Fox News?
CNN’s over leftism would be fine if the company framed itself as pushing a leftist message. This site, for example, is obviously on the far-right. No one reading here would think otherwise, so you know that bias is baked into each and every article. Similarly, MSNBC is an openly leftist network; we might make fun of what it says, but it doesn’t have the same credibility issue as CNN because it’s expected to be left-leaning, not accurate and unbiased.
But for CNN, that’s not necessarily the case; readers might guess that it’s full of leftists, and indeed it’s hard not to grasp that when consuming its awful content, but it presents itself as real news, not news mixed with editorializing.
As Acosta’s bitter rant shows, nothing could be further from the truth; CNN is a company run by leftists for leftists, whatever its marketing material says.
Now, though Acosta’s ridiculous rant is old news, it’s still important; at a time when CNN is trying to shift how people view it, Acosta and his words stand as a testament to what the leftist network is really about; it’s for leftists, not for accurately telling the news in an unbiased manner.
