Trump Directly Called Out CNN's Acosta for Being 'Fake News'

Not very long ago, Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House correspondent, got into a shouting match with Steve Miller over the Statue of Liberty. Today, he got into a shouting match with the president of the United States over whether he did or did not denounce the alt-right demonstration in Charlottesville strongly enough. Trump called him out directly for being “fake news.” And Acosta responded, “Mr. President, haven’t you spread a lot of fake news yourself?” Should Acosta remain CNN’s White House correspondent? And if so, should CNN be allowed to keep its press credentials? Shouldn’t yelling at the president in a rude way be cause for a reporter getting fired?
