The press is pathetically playing the role of the innocent victim here. While acting shocked at the implication that they make have been anything less than virtuous freedom fighters and heavy handed truth proponents. They take immediate offense towards anyone who questions their virtuosity.
Guys like Jim Acosta would have been dragged out of the White House press room for behaving the way he has been behaving if he was around during the Regan era. It’s tough to go after a guy like Jim Acosta since he has a powerful platform on CNN and will claim that he is being oppressed and silenced because he’s a journalist and therefore conclude that they are part of a rising fascist regime.
