CNN Communications VP Rips Chris Wallace After His Criticism of Jim Acosta: ‘At Least Acosta Doesn’t Work for State TV’
Matt Dornic, Vice President of Communications and Digital Partnerships at CNN, described Chris Wallace’s network Fox News as “state TV” while standing up for his colleague Jim Acosta — who Wallace criticized today for his aggressive questioning of President Donald Trump at today’s White House presser.
“Hey Chris, at least @Acosta doesn’t work for state TV. Must be hard to sleep at night,” Dornic tweeted this afternoon — but he wasn’t done just yet: “Also, curious, I can’t find your comments about how ‘shameful’ it was when your colleagues campaigned for @realDonaldTrump the other night.”

While Wallace noted that “most of the people there were serious reporters asking serious questions,” he thought that Acosta “embarrassed himself today.”
Dornic has also attacked Fox News in the past regarding this issue.
When Trump used a John Roberts’ question at a summer presser to attack CNN, the Fox News reporter did not interject, which led to many criticizing Roberts, like Dornic.
Nice try, @johnrobertsFox. Your omission is glaring and your compliment backhanded. Next time try and show some class in the moment. And in your statement.
