CNN’s Jim Acosta is not a journalist. That’s been thoroughly established over the last several years, from his wild, partisan rantings as a White House correspondent during the Trump era to his profanity-filled tirades on the low-rated weekend show he now anchors. This is a man with serious issues, and those issues have been exacerbated by his obsession with January 6th, and by proxy, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Apparently, the stalwart newsman decided he’d go to Capitol Hill to “get answers” about the now almost seven-month-old incident. You know, because no one has talked about January 6th to this point. We obviously need more “answers.”

Things just get weird from there.

Media: @mtgreenee to @Acosta on #CapitolHill says @SpeakerPelosi “should put me on the committee” to investigate the 1/6 insurrection. And #DonaldTrump “is not responsible for this riot here,” the rioters are.

The problem here is obvious. Why is Acosta continuing to stalk Greene, a back-bencher representative he can’t seem to ever stop talking about, to demand answers from her, if he apparently already has them? If he’s so invested in and sure of the idea that Donald Trump is directly responsible for what happened on January 6th, what else is he hoping to learn by asking the same question over and over? Greene, regardless of how any personal opinions about her, doesn’t owe Acosta a repetition of his talking points.

This entire exchange just comes across like a child throwing a tantrum because he doesn’t get what he wants. If Acosta wants to be a journalist, then be a journalist. Ask questions, get answers, and report on those answers — regardless of what you think personally of the person you are interviewing. But as I said, Acosta is not a journalist. Rather, he’s a hack, partisan operative who isn’t even talented enough to mask his biases, thus his demotion to playing roving weekend reporter with a show that gets out-rated by reruns of “Pawn Stars.”
