White House re­porter in the wrong

Edmonton Journal - - LETTERS -

All I’ve seen re­gard­ing the Trump news con­fer­ence in which re­porter Jim Acosta might have bumped or hit the young lady try­ing to get the mi­cro­phone was that Acosta is ex­on­er­ated and that it is Trump’s fault.

All of the news I’ve seen has been about other re­porters’ com­ments. How about a com­ment from some­one out­side the me­dia?

I’m not a fan of Trump but he wasn’t the one who was bel­liger­ent; it was Acosta. Trump had told Acosta he would not an­swer any more of his ques­tions and asked him to pass the mic back to the young lady. Acosta kept the mic and tried to ask an­other ques­tion, which wasn’t heard or an­swered.

I’m old-fash­ioned and re­spect when my boss tells me to sit down. I wouldn’t keep press­ing with an­other ques­tion be­cause if this were in a com­pany, I would prob­a­bly be fired.

Wolf­gang Zei­dler, Ed­mon­ton
