CNN’s Acosta: W.H. Briefing Had ‘PR Stunt’
from ‘Mr. Pillow’ Plugging His Company

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 3/31/2020 7:08:42 AM

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta suggested that the White House’s coronavirus briefings could be “better designed” by not having “these PR stunts like Mr. Pillow coming out and giving a plug for his company, and that sort of thing.” Acosta said, “I think these briefings could be, I think, better designed. The president could come out, say a few words in terms of what his administration is doing, not have these PR stunts like Mr. Pillow coming out and giving a plug for his company,

Acosta is really a dunce. By criticizing Mr. Pillow who is doing something good for the country during time of need, Acosta is actually promoting him. I am so tired of these lame brain reporters asking dumb questions and then trying to trash our President who is working around the clock to help the entire country. I would like to see the MSM actually try and help.

When Acosta (or any of the media) can contribute anything substantive for the effort other than hot air and recycled Chinese propaganda, then he can opine all he wants. Otherwise, shut up and sit down. greyseal

Acosta does not have the brain that an amoeba has. Just a standard ignorant leftist hack that the main stream media adores....and the rest of us would like to flush down the toilet.....even though we don't have any paper.

Every one of those executives had a chance to give a pug for his/her company. And well they deserve it for stepping up in this time of crisis. POTUS gave them the spotlight and the American public got to learn what these good companies are doing for their country. That was the purpose of thisi particular press conference - showcasing the rapid success of the public-private cooperation. Instead of asking questions so we can learn more about that, as usual, the media only knows how to be destructive.

It would not surprise me if today 1) There was a significant increase in the orders for products from the My Pillow business, and 2) The viewership of CNN continues to shrink and no new subscriptions are received at the Washington Post or New York Times as people show more and more disgust with the fake news business.

The President and his team have provided unprecedented access to the press to ask meaningful questions to inform the public. Yet, Mr Asshat thinks he can do better. Tell you what, The President and his team are doing great job. No one is doing a better job. 'Mr Pillow' is performing a public service, manufacturing key goods needed in this time of national crisis. Yet somehow, that does not sink in for Mr Asshat. He thinks it is a publicity stunt.

I agree with Acosta that these pressers should be better designed. They should be designed with Acosta standing outside the White House fence.

Acostya hasn't yet figured out that Mr. Trump don't play The days of the media making the news about themselves doesn't work under this President. So many once reputable "journolist" types have disreputable reputations now because Mr. Trump won't be manipulated. If we can make sure that most adults are not manipulated by the false accusations and inuenndos of the agenda-driven propaganda merchants

Excuse me, Mr. Acosta, but I am under the impression that you work for a company called CNN. Aren't you trying to promote it everytime you get called on at press briefings? Or are you just promoting yourself? Whatever.

Officially, Congress is scheduled to come back on April 20 as lawmakers try to avoid traveling and congregating amid the raging crisis and as they plot a potential fourth phase of economic relief. Unofficially, it could take even longer for Congress to physically come back into session. And longer still for things to return to anywhere near normal on Capitol Hill, where
