Jim Acosta went after Sean Hannity in a despicable way. He called him a liar and worse, and basically blamed darn near everything that is wrong with the world on Hannity (and to a lesser degree Trump).
Thankfully Sean wasn’t having it and fought back to defend his stellar reputation.
From Business Insider:
Jim Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent who is a frequent target of President Donald Trump and his supporters, criticized the Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.
“Hannity is a propagandist for profit, peddling lies every night,” Acosta said on Twitter. “He says he’s just a talk show host, not a journalist. But he’s injecting poison into the nation’s political bloodstream warping public attitudes about the press. I’m confident in the long run the truth will prevail.”
Hannity is one of Trump’s close confidants and a vocal supporter of the president. The opinion-show host responded to Acosta’s criticism with a few broadsides of his own, accusing the veteran journalist of being a “liberal partisan hack.”
Sean said, “You’re extremely rude. Oh, and a liberal partisan hack. That’s why Americans don’t trust you or Fake News CNN… You’re not reporting facts, you’re giving your opinions. You’re an opinion channel!”
Hannity just can't quit Jim Acosta: 'You're extremely rude. Oh, and a liberal partisan hack. That's why Americans don't trust you or Fake News CNN… You're not reporting facts, you're giving your opinions. You're an opinion channel!" pic.twitter.com/hIvUATdzhq
