What is Jim Acosta´s job, anyway?
Washington Times, by Larry O´Connor

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/9/2018 5:14:03 AM

After the latest episode this week in the reality show “Jim Acosta: White House Meltdown,” it’s long past time for CNN to tell us what exactly Mr. Acosta’s actual job is. His title is “senior White House correspondent,” but the manner in which he executes his duties betrays that label. During Wednesday’s epic press conference, Mr. Acosta was called upon by President Trump to ask a question on behalf of his network. Mr. Acosta began by saying, “Thank you, Mr. President. I wanted to challenge you on one of the statements you made during the campaign.” “I wanted to challenge you” is not the beginning of a question; it’s the

The president does not answer to journalists. They can ask questions but they can´t judge and do not have the right to be rude, to anyone.

Sarah, and President Trump, need to STOP calling on people like Acosta. April Ryan is first on my List. If they are not called on, maybe their Bosses will replace them with someone who has respect for the White House, and Sarah Huckabee. I absolutely would just let them sit there like a Bump on a Log. I would Seat them is the back of the room and ignore them!

Acosta reminds me of a college intern who walks into a company and instantly starts insisting on giving stupid opinions that no one asked for and demanding their rights. When he gets fired on day one he goes home and high fives his Mom who thinks he is brilliant.

O´Connors suspicion that Acosta´s actions are not what his "colleagues in the White House briefing room want" is wrong.

The over-the-top outrage at Acosta´s ban and the claim that the video of Acosta striking the female WH intern was "doctored" shows that disrespect and aggression is exactly what the WH press corp and their owners want.

Can we PLEASE stop this idiotic and unwarranted worship of "journalism" and "journalists"? Put them to scrubbing toilets in turnpike rest stops or something on that order, more along the lines of their "talents".
We do not need and generally do not want "journalists".
What we could use are honest and reliable REPORTERS. Honest and complete reporting of the Who?, What?, When?, Where?, and, sometimes with great care, the Why? matters. The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Not personal opinions, wishes, etc. and not covering up (as the Journ-o-list cabal) some "inconvenient truth" things.
In a better world, creeps like Acosta would be playing the piano in a brothel or being a dog-walker or the like. Ditto for George Will and the crew at Weakly Sub-Standard.

Two southern Republican gubernatorial candidates are ready to move into their governor mansions after appearing to have pulled off victories in their races but their never-say-die Democratic opponents are refusing to give up – though the writing is on the wall. In Florida, the contest for governor between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum appeared all but over Thursday, with a machine recount showing DeSantis with a large enough advantage over Gillum to avoid a hand recount in that race. The latest numbers posted online by the state of Florida show DeSantis with more than 33,683 votes than Gillum.

Seven current and former Dartmouth College students filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Ivy League school, alleging it ignored an “animal house” atmosphere created by three professors in the school’s department of psychology and brain sciences. The lawsuit, which seeks $70 million in damages, claims the professors “leered at, groped, sexted, intoxicated and raped female students.” It alleges the professors conducted meetings at bars, invited students to late-night hot tub parties in their homes and invited undergraduate students to use cocaine during class.

The installation of Matthew Whitaker as the acting attorney general has the recusal pundits barking like shelter dogs in the presence of a trespassing squirrel. In case you’re wondering how the recusal rules work, it’s simply a matter of whether it helps or hurts Trump. Don’t believe me? See if you can detect a pattern. Since Whitaker might rein in the special counsel, he must be recused, they argue. Similarly, when it appeared former attorney general Jeff Sessions might help Trump, he acceded to demands he recuse himself. But Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

Obama Judges Can’t Save Dem Losers

Obama-appointed federal judges have brazenly rewritten election statutes to favor Democrats challenging the outcomes of races in Florida and Georgia. In both states, however, the apparent losers haven’t benefited from arbitrary changes these partisan jurists made in the laws by which election officials are legally bound. Thursday, for example, an Obama appointee changed the rules governing how mail-in ballots with signature mismatches must be handled in Florida — just hours before the legally-mandated recount deadline. In Georgia, two Obama appointees changed the rules regarding how to count incomplete absentee ballots, provisional ballots,

British politics and markets are in chaos because Prime Minister Theresa May can’t sell her long-awaited Brexit plan — and no one knows what comes next. After British voters narrowly approved a withdrawal from the European Union in 2016, we felt the United Kingdom would be better off — able to make its own decisions on trade and immigration and free from lunatic EU regulations. But little of that is in the deal May unveiled Wednesday night. It leaves the UK within the EU’s economic orbit, subject to many of the bloc’s existing regulations and tariffs,

About 1,200 auditors sharpened their pencils and pored over the Pentagon´s accounting books and were able to identify discrepancies that will likely take years to resolve, Reuters reported. The undertaking was massive and an early goal for the Trump administration. These auditors looked into spending on military personnel and weapons systems, the report said. Patrick Shanahan, the deputy secretary of defense, said "the fact that we did the audit is substantial," and said the agency "never expected to pass."

The good thing about screwing up is that you can learn from your mistakes and do better next time. That, of course, assumes you are not a Republican Party official, because the GOP Establishment seems largely incapable of learning from its mistakes. We should try again anyway. We won some races, but we lost a lot more. Losing has one advantage over winning – pain is a better teacher than joy. After all, winning generally teaches you the wrong lessons. It makes you complacent. Look at Texas. The governor did worse than expected; Ted Cruz had a close call, and down ballot

President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron have a unique and often strained relationship. They alternate between clashing with and fawning over one another, because even though they are quite different people, they seek similar goals: the greatness of their countries. The age difference and generational dynamic explain some of the ups and downs of this relationship, as do the different political cultures of the two countries. But there is more to it than that. There is the history of each country and our relationship across history; there is the current state of world affairs

President Trump has not received adequately grateful recognition for withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and effectively scuttling the Clean Power Plan. These measures, which reinforced each other and were an outright assault on American capitalism and economic growth, were, with the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the nuclear giveaway to Iran, the core of Barack Obama’s effort to be a transformative president. The whole basis of the Clean Power Plan and the Paris climate accord was false from the beginning, yet the premise on which they were based attained a tremendous level of momentum and effectively bulldozed opposition

CHICAGO — To read the worshipful press coverage you’d never know that, for Democrats, the unthinkable has happened: Michelle Obama has revealed herself as just another guru for sale. On Tuesday night, the former first lady kicked off her 10-city North American book tour, which more closely resembled a cult-of-personality-propaganda-rally, at the United Center in Chicago. (Dates have been added in London, where scalped tickets are going for over $90,000 each, and Paris.) A sliver of the 20,000 seats available for the Chicago event were priced at $29.50, and those sold out within five minutes of going on sale in September.
