Fails to apologize for it
CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted fake news about President Trump not seeing Congressman Scalise in hospital after yesterday’s shooting, then refused to apologize for it.
After reports emerged that Trump had visited Scalise at at MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday, Acosta tweeted, “WH official on hospital visit: “President Trump did not meet with Scalise and did not go into the room where Scalise is being treated.”
Acosta was quickly corrected by another reporter before deleting his original tweet.
- Acosta later had to tacitly admit that he never spoke to any “White House official” before blaming the inaccurate tweet on another reporter who sent him an email via press pool.
