Fox Contributor: Acosta’s Behavior at Briefing Is What Makes People See Media as ‘Enemy of the People’


On Fox Business Network this morning, Tammy Bruce said Jim Acosta‘s actions at the press briefing yesterday show why people in the media are considered the “enemy of the people.”

Acosta confronted Sarah Sanders yesterday for declining to say the press isn’t the enemy of the people. The exchange got very heated and Acosta ended up walking out of the briefing.

Stuart Varney said today Acosta was “out of bounds.” Bruce agreed and said, “Jim Acosta once again made himself the story.”

She continued:

“He made his own job the story. It was an attack on a women who is just trying to impart information to the press about what the White House is doing in a very volatile world. And yet for that fellow, it was about him and then he became an infant and stomped out of the room when he didn’t get his away. That is what makes you effectively, in a larger, broader sense, an enemy to the American people. Did he ask any questions about the nature of what’s happening about Europe? About the economy here in America? About what’s going on with China and with North Korea? About American crime and about MS-13? No, it was about Jim Acosta and that is his failure.”

Bruce even said, “Whether or not Jim Acosta is happy is not of our concern. We do not care if he’s upset.”
