CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, who built a reputation as a bulldog during White House press briefings during the Trump administration, got a taste of his own medicine on Friday at the Political Action Conference curator (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida.
A conservative reporter confronted Acosta about the network coverage of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, currently embroiled in controversies over his management of nursing homes during the pandemic and accusations of sexual harassment, the latter vigorously denied by Cuomo.
Acosta was cut off mid-interview by David Marcus, correspondent for conservative magazine The Federalist. Marcus has harassed Acosta to keep CNN from covering the Cuomo scandals. The governor’s brother, Chris Cuomo, works for CNN.
Before even meeting Marcus, Acosta faced a hostile reception. Acosta endured chants of “CNN sucks” upon arrival
