CNN's former White House correspondent Jim Acosta is in deep trouble.
Acosta announced he was suing the White House for revoking his press credentials this week after an ugly incident at last Wednesday's press conference.
Video of the incident shows Acosta refused to give up his turn after asking two questions and, when asked to stop shouting, tussled with a young White House intern that tried to take back the microphone. Later that day, the White House revoked his press access.
After filing the lawsuit against President Donald Trump, the uniformed secret service agent that took his credentials, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (and others), Acosta has faced a serious backlash from his fellow reporters.
Instead of being defended by other journalists, Acosta's latest stunt was met with a collective groan of annoyance.
Once again, Acosta made the story about him — and this time, the mainstream media is fed up.
According to reports, serious journalists in the White House press pool are sick of these attention-grabbing stunts.
