The Jim Acosta Show (All About Jim Acosta) Featuring Jim Acosta
Original content | 8/5/2018 | By Laz A. Mataz

A long time ago, one of the most important journalist standards was this: "Never make yourself the story." What does that mean? When reporting, journalists must avoid making themselves a subject of the news or participate actively in any story.

Jim Acosta, of CNN, not only rejects that concept, he doubles-down, and attempts to become the entire focus of story after story. He turns the term "journalist standards" an oxymoron. His boorish and rude behavior at multiple press conferences makes him (probably intentionally) the center of attention.

Witness this small sampling of outbursts:

Even his fellow professionals at CNN have noticed. Steve Krakauer, a former Producer for CNN news, characterized his conduct as “self-serving antics,” saying they “give all good journalists a bad name.”

If his behavior goes unchecked, I expect a show to be unveiled on CNN: "The Jim Acosta Show (All About Jim Acosta) Featuring Jim Acosta". I imagine the credits for that show might read like this:

If Jim Acosta can make money for Jim Acosta, by selling "The Jim Acosta Show (All About Jim Acosta) Featuring Jim Acosta" on DVD, Jim Acosta might just do it.

Jim Acosta.

Good job!

Jimmy Acosta is a shoe-in for a win at the American Journalism Awards in the Drama Queen category.

I heard that Jim Acosta was the host of the Jim Acosta show and his guest this week will be Jim Acosta on the Jim Acosta show.

And the only person watching the Jim Acosta show featuring Jim Acosta and his guest Jim Acosta will be Jim Acosta

LOL, Good post.

Journalists are supposed to have standards but Acosta is a propagandist and he demonstrates it’s anything goes to help preserve their corrupt status quo.

What’s that old saying about when your enemies are failing to let them? Jim Acosta is a fun one to watch demonstrate this.

Is he the same bobble head on ESPN/NFL who yaks politics rather than doing a critique of games?

There’s a few of those, on ESPN and NFL, but Jim Acosta is not one of them.
