Legendary journalist and author Bob Woodward is not joining his colleagues in their support of CNN’s Jim Acosta.
After Acosta had his hard pass to the White House suspended, CNN filed a lawsuit against the White House.
The suit alleges that Acosta’s first and fifth amendment rights were violated.
Woodward attacked CNN arguing too many media figures quote, “have become emotionally unhinged.”
He was speaking at the Global Financial Leadership Conference in Florida…he went on to say, “the remedy isn’t suing the administration….it’s more serious reporting about what he’s doing.”
NBC News reporter Dylan Byers was the first one to draw attention to the comments.
This all comes after a tumultuous press conference where Acosta, according to the White House, refused to give up his microphone after asking the President a barrage of questions.
Trump said: “CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN.”
Woodward argued that CNN was taking Trump’s bait by pursuing a federal case, adding, “This is negative. Trump is sitting around saying, ‘This is great.’”
The White House saying the lawsuit is just more grandstanding from CNN.
