Some of Jim Acosta’s co-workers at CNN think his public clashes with the Trump White House signal he wants to be given his own talk show on the network, Katelyn Caralle writes at the Washington Free Beacon.
An on-air conservative political commentator for CNN said that he gets the impression from Acosta’s actions that he wants a new role at the network, according to the Washington Examiner.
“He’s angling to host an opinion show,” the CNN commentator said. “These [White House] briefings are his auditions.”
Acosta made himself the story last week as he jousted with White House Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller at a press conference about President Trump’s proposed immigration reforms.
Things got pretty intense.
Acosta accused Trump of pursuing a racist, even white-supremacist approach to immigration reform because the ability to speak English would be stressed among would-be immigrants.
