Because Acosta has obviously decided to stop acting as a reporter and has taken on a new role as an op-ed pundit (and not a very good one) for CNN.

Carlson wasn’t simply bloviating, he had video proof of Acosta’s many (and egregious) journalistic sins.

He even highlighted some of the best (worst) examples of Acosta going rogue and shifting gears from reporting to editorializing… or as Carlson so stingingly puts it… “3rd Rate Punditry.”

Ouch.

“The president won a world record for injecting politics?” Carlson asked. “According to Jim Acosta, reporter, that is “exactly what happened.” Can we get some documentation for that claim? A certificate from the Guinness book, maybe? Did CNN’s most visible hard journalist just accidentally slip into third-rate punditry? It looks that way. And it probably wasn’t by accident, actually. As a veteran Acosta-watcher, we’ve noticed a theme here.”

“Keep in mind that as of this morning, Jim Acosta was still listed as CNN senior White House correspondent. Now that is a different job from being a talking head on one of those panel shows with 19 guests, all of them minor political partners. At least, it’s supposed to be a different job,” Carlson said.

“Is Jeff Zucker watching any of this?” Carlson asked. “I’m not attacking Jim Acosta for bad punditry at all — although that is bad punditry — I’m kind of wondering what the boundaries are. If you are a White House correspondent supposedly committing journalism, gathering facts, bringing them to your audience, how can that person coexist with the person we just saw?”

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
