    this is what he says in the opening of his book:

    "Trump's rhetoric will lead one of his supporters to harm or even murder a journalist. when it happens, the US will undergo something of a sea change joining the list of countries around the world where journalists were no longer safe reporting the truth.

    perhaps we have already entered that era, a dangerous time to tell the truth in America"

    and later he said about Trump's rhetoric:

    "this is a terrorist attack on CNN, and without a doubt, on the american free press"

    Truth is a stranger to paid political "journalists" like Acosta. They are more akin to serial fiction writers.

    Acosta is "public enemy number 1", as Bannon once described him!

    So CNN is trying to piss everyone off on purpose....just so they can get better rating?
    That's what this sounds like.
