It's no secret that Trump has a certain disdain for the "fake news media", but at a recent rally right here in Tampa, it seemed Trump's supporters had more hatred for certain members of the press than he does.
CNN's Jim Acosta got the worst of it last night- a crowd surrounded him as he attempted to go live with coverage before and after the rally began. People yelled things like "Tell the truth!" "Stop fake news", and "CNN sucks".
Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy. pic.twitter.com/IhSRw5Ui3R— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 1, 2018
In a tweet, he states that he is "worried that the hostility....will result in somebody getting hurt". Do you think that these people are right for holding what our President calls the 'fake news media' accountable? Or should they have been more respectful of the press at this event?
