Jim Acosta Torches Fox News as a ‘Bullsh*t Factory,’ Calls Tucker Carlson a ‘Race-Baiting Tyrant’

‘They churn out segments that gin up outrage that they know is going to piss off their viewers and so on — even if it’s cockamamy made up nonsense’

CNN anchor Jim Acosta is utterly unsparing in his criticism of rival network Fox News — dismissing the network as a “bullshit factory” and going hard at one of their lead hosts.

Speaking with Mediaite’s Aidan McLaughlin for this week’s episode of The Interview podcast, the CNN anchor bashed Fox News for what he deemed to be an increasing trend towards outrage content. Acosta highlighted the network’s call of Arizona for President Joe Biden in the 2020 election as a point at which they could have “come back to the real world.” Instead, the CNN anchor believes Fox has tried to cater to its audience, in a bid to claw back viewers from OAN and Newsmax, with what he labeled “more Trumpian” programming.
