Some people never learn. Little kids. Spoiled little kids. Bratty, spoiled little kids. And CNN’s Jim Acosta.
Case in point: I’ve lost track of how many times CNN’s intrepid former White House reporter has gotten his a** handed to him by Fox News and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R), but it’s a lot. Yet, he never learns.
As for Fox, it’s all about the ratings, Jim. End of story. And Cruz? Not exactly the guy you want to challenge to a mental gymnastics contest, my man. Simply put: battle of wits, no ammunition.
Yet, there he went again — and we love every minute of it.

As gleefully reported — although I have no idea why, given the fool Acosta made out of himself — by left-wing rag Raw Story, the CNN “journalist” on Friday repeatedly “called bulls**t” on Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Jesse Watters, Fox itself, and Cruz, a frequent Fox News guest.
Acosta was infantile from the outset.
“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.
And what a year it was over on Fox — or, as I’ve described it this year, the bulls**t factory. [How cute, bless your jealous little heart.] Just in the last week, they’ve churned out so much BS it’s hard to keep up.” [Oh, ha.]
Acosta, who has always fancied his silly self as some kind of modern-day Edward R. Murrow or Walter Cronkite, got his typical Barney vibe on, all proud of himself for saying “bulls**t” on the air — particularly about Fox News. Almost like he wet his pants a little bit, each time he said “the naughty word.”
Speaking “directly to” Carlson, Jimbo said:
“We once honored you with the distinction of bulls**t factory employee of the month, but now that 2021 is coming to an end, we decided to honor you as our first-ever BS factory employee of the year.”
“Honored”? Says who? Post-Trump, CNN’s ratings have raced down the ratings toilet faster than Michael Moore running from a door-to-door health food salesman. Now that Corn Pop’s pal sits in the Oval Office, CNN’s only reason for existence has been to desperately try to save this guy from himself — to no avail.
Acosta eventually turned to Cruz, suggesting the Texan could’ve been a candidate for CNN’s silly “bulls**t factory employee of the month” award if he were a Fox employee instead of an “aspiring” employee.
Here’s how that went:
“Ted Cruz — he could have been a contender with his recent criticism of Big Bird — and his accusation that Liz Cheney suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome.” [Um, Jim?]
CNN then rolled a clip of Cruz saying:
“I look at the situation of Liz Cheney and I just think it’s sad. I think she falls into the category of people who Donald Trump just broke. Just shattered — she’s lashing out at Trump, at Republicans, at everything. She’s become a Democrat and it’s sad to watch what has happened. It is Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
As to Big Bird, as we reported earlier this month after the bird-turned-COVID-vax-advocate showed up on CNN to shill for the vaccine, Cruz promptly labeled the PBS taxpayer-funded kid show’s sales job: “Government propaganda… for your five-year-old!”
Fortunately — purely for entertainment purposes, Cruz responded to Acosta’s silliness.
There is a reason that CNN has no viewers.
It is not remotely a news organization. It’s just angry, dishonest, partisan propagandists.
Can you imagine Walter Cronkite doing this?
Acosta is a ??
But that’s ok: 6X as many people will see this tweet as watch his show!
Mic drop, right? Not yet.
Who cares? Acosta’s rant so imbecilic & juvenile, it doesn’t matter how many people watch it. The more the better–it unmasks & beclowns CNN, simultaneously.
Finally, this last bit of stage 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome insanity from our Jimbo:
“Fox News can’t run away from Trump or Trumpism. Fox is Trump, and Trump is Fox.”
Earth to Jim: Fox News kicks CNN’s a** every day of the week and twice on Sunday. And nobody knows whether or not you’re even still on the air, much less when. Why the h*ll would Fox News want to run away from anything? Least of which, you and CNN?
You know — the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” thing?
