Jim Acosta recently tried to slam Larry Elder, a GOP gubernatorial candidate in California, for a recently surfaced wild accusation. [We wrote about that here.]
Acosta mentioned nothing about the network ignoring the fact that host Chris Cuomo helped his brother, Andrew Cuomo, respond to accusers.
Fox star Janice Dean, who crusaded against Cuomo, proceeded to level Acosta.
According to The Daily Wire:
On Monday, Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean, whose valiant efforts to expose New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s mishandling of the COVIC crisis revealed her take-no-prisoners attitude, claimed another scalp as she eviscerated CNN’s Jim Acosta for attempting to tar California GOP gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder.
Acosta, trying desperately to attack the leading candidate to replace California Democrat governor Gavin Newsom, criticized Elder for his supposed negative comments about women. Dean fired back on Twitter:
Hi @Acosta just a reminder that you work at a place that allows @ChrisCuomo to keep his job after helping his brother with sexual harassment accusations and @JeffreyToobin who likes to do x-rated stuff on zoom calls, so maybe sit this one out? https://t.co/pJ7A3UrsBh

Dean was prompted by an interview Acosta conducted with Californian GOP congressman Darrell Issa. Acosta stated, “Right now the Republican front-runner is an outspoken talk-show host named Larry Elder. He’s made a number of disparaging remarks about women. I want you to listen to this; let me ask you about this on the other side.”
Acosta played an audio clip of Elder stating, “When you look at all these women who have marched, something like two million women, Donald Trump has probably gotten more obese women off the couch and in the streets working out than Michelle Obama did in eight years.”
Issa then leveled Acosta himself, “In tens of thousands of hours, if that’s the best you have, you don’t really have anything on Larry Elder.”
