Conservative reporter confronts CNN’s Jim Acosta at CPAC for not covering Governor Cuomo

29

Watch. CNN has not covered Governor Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home scandal, or allegations of sexual assaults by a former aide. Instead, they continue to attack President Trump, Senator Cruz, and other Republicans. It’s a disgrace.

Conservative reporter confronts CNN’s Jim Acosta at CPAC

By The Hill, February 27, 2021

Former CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta got entangled in a confrontation with a reporter for The Federalist at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Friday over his network’s coverage of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Acosta was in the middle of an interview at CPAC when David Marcus, the New York correspondent for the Federalist, interrupted, asking repeatedly why CNN wasn’t reporting on the sexual abuse allegations Cuomo faces or his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Hey, hey, hey, Jim,” Marcus said on the video which the Federalist later posted to Twitter. “Hey, Jim, I’m David Marcus from The Federalist; when are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?”

“We do, we do,” Acosta said, before asking if he could finish what he was doing first before engaging with Marcus.

Marcos then continues to interrupt Acosta to ask about Cuomo in the video posted on Twitter.

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Acosta covered the White House throughout former President Trump’s administration and became a nationally-known figure for his contentious battles with the former president.

The years covering Trump made Acosta a target of Trump supporters at rallies and other events, something that also took place at CPAC, where a crowd followed Acosta around the conference chanting “CNN sucks,” according to the Independent.

CPAC is a home base of sorts of Trump this week. The former president will speak at the event on Sunday.

Marcus defended confronting Acosta while he was conducting an interview, telling The Hill that he should have expected it at CPAC.
