SAD! Donald Trump ignores CNN reporters and OMG IS JIM ACOSTA GOING TO BE OK???

You know, we might be willing to take Real Journalists™ a little more seriously if they dedicated nearly as much time to journalism as they did to whining.

CNN’s chief natsec correspondent Jim Sciutto seems pretty put-out at Trump bypassing him in favor of Fox News and the Daily Caller today:

Trump chooses Fox and Daily Caller for his two questions.

Fellow CNN hack Brian Stelter isn’t happy, either:

Awwww.

Of course they’re mad. But if CNN’s looking for someone to blame for Trump ignoring them, they should look in the mirror. Journalism has taken a distant backseat to bashing Trump at every turn. Trump is not above scrutiny, but any legitimate beefs CNN might have with Trump have become drowned out by their constantly crying wolf.

That liberal mainstream reporters would grumble about this is unsurprising. That they’re willing to go public with these complaints reflects an amazing myopia https://t.co/WS6lkJFsbs

Exactly. Reporters from CNN — or from any outlet — acting like entitled children aren’t going to get much sympathy from the viewing public.

“Trump attacks our media and hates the press” – said the firefighting journalists mocking and complaining about the Daily Caller being called on

The implication of these tweets is that it is some sort of sin to even call on me. Notice they never take issue with the question or the major news they elicit pic.twitter.com/ea1t0r5saF

Why do you have a problem with @POTUS allow minority reporters ask questions? Racist much?

— Doc Bennett (@DocBennett1ID) June 7, 2018

Racist or not, CNN pitching a fit every time Trump or Sarah Sanders or anyone in his administration doesn’t call on them isn’t doing them any favors; it just makes them seem even more out-of-touch and unlikable.

Oh no, now we get to hear Acosta whine about not getting to hear his own voice https://t.co/bp2rmrtRZO

Hopefully Jim Acosta, Jim Sciutto, and Brian Stelter can cry it out over appletinis later.

At least Acosta will have you guys cheer him up… poor guy
