CNN’s Jim Acosta Is Accosted By Hecklers At CPAC – .
CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, who had earned a reputation as a bulldog at press conferences at the White House during the Trump administration, got a taste of his own medicine at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida on Friday.
A conservative journalist confronted Acosta with the network’s coverage of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is currently embroiled in controversy over his dealings with nursing homes during the pandemic and sexual harassment charges. The latter was vigorously denied by Cuomo.
Acosta was cut off in the middle of an interview with David Marcus, a correspondent for conservative magazine The Federalist. Marcus harassed Acosta with CNN without covering the Cuomo scandals. The governor’s brother, Chris Cuomo, works for CNN.
Even before Acosta met Marcus, he had to deal with an unfriendly reception. Acosta endured chants from “CNN Sucks” upon arrival
