Lindsey Graham Rips Press for ‘Activist’ Journalism After Acosta Incident: ‘Allies of the Democratic Party’

Senator Lindsey Graham held nothing back when he called out journalists defending Jim Acosta for his behavior at a Tuesday press conference.

Graham took to Twitter to express his disapproval of the situation.

The White House press corps released a statement after CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass was taken away. During the press conference, Acosta refused to hand over the mic and appeared to block a White House aide from taking it from him.

Acosta also tweeted out his response to the situation and was on CNN discussing why he believed his behavior was not wrong.

Watch:

Although there is some controversy over how press secretary Sarah Sanders claimed that Acosta “laid his hands on the aide,” Graham said that the media has started to become activists in politics.

Sanders also tweeted out a video of the situation, although there are some who are claiming that the footage is doctored.

Watch:

Many conservative leaders have spoken out in the past about issues with the way that media reports stories. President Donald Trump has been a well-known critic of media companies he does not believe are fair, and has had issues with Acosta in the past.

It is uncertain if Acosta will apologize or if his press pass will be reinstated.
