Hypocrisy is an over-used charge in politics. But sometimes, the shoe fits. In his Late Night With Stephen Colbert interview, CNN reporter Jim Acosta subtly levies that accusation at the American right wing.
Pro-Trump conservatives accuse CNN and other news outlets of selective truth-telling, of having made up their minds about the Trump presidency before knowing if it will succeed or fail. But Acosta explains that his “Acosta-ing” of Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the White House is not motivated by liberal bias or partisan agenda.
Instead, the Washington D.C. correspondent believes that President Donald Trump’s entire political career is based on a lie. Therefore, it would be dishonest for Acosta to cover the current administration in a less-aggressive way.
Simple when you spell it out, right? There are those in the GOP who would prefer not to.
