CNN’s Jim Acosta shouldn’t have attended the CPAC.
Acosta showed up ready to report fake news and was immediately greeted by “CNN Sucks” chants.
Watch the moment it happened here:

That wasn’t the only time Acosta was confronted though.
While the CNN anchor was being interviewed a reporter from the Federalist came up to him and asked him why CNN wasn’t covering Gov. Cuomo’s Nursing Home and sexual harassment scandals.

The Daily Mail got the full scoop on the story:
Jim Acosta was met with ‘CNN sucks’ chants at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday before a conservative journalist confronted him over the network’s coverage of Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home and sexual harassment scandals.
CNN correspondent Acosta was met with a raucous crowd of hecklers as he arrived to cover the four-day right-wing political event in Orlando, Florida.
Footage on social media shows the journalist being interrupted mid-interview by David Marcus, a correspondent for conservative magazine The Federalist, who harassed him over the reporting about the New York governor.

OANN didn’t stay silent either and reported these details:
CNN’s Jim Acosta was accosted by CPAC attendees over his and his outlet’s biased news coverage. Video posted to social media Friday showed the liberal media anchor surrounded by people chanting “CNN sucks!”
Acosta was also confronted by a reporter who asked him when CNN was going to cover the scandals surrounding New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D). The former White House Correspondent was moved to cover domestic stories, so he could still write biased stories about the 45th President after he left office.
Maybe CNN should start doing real investigative journalism instead of trying to push propaganda 24/7 then maybe people would like them.
