From CNN’s veteran Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, an explosive, first-hand account of the dangers he faces reporting on the current White House while fighting on the front lines in President Trump’s war on truth. 

In Mr. Trump’s campaign against what he calls “Fake News,” CNN Chief White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta, is public enemy number one. From the moment Mr. Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, he has attacked the media, calling journalists “the enemy of the people.”

Acosta presents a damning examination of bureaucratic dysfunction, deception, and the unprecedented threat the rhetoric Mr. Trump is directing has on our democracy. When the leader of the free world incites hate and violence, Acosta doesn’t back down, and he urges his fellow citizens to do the same.

At Mr. Trump’s most hated network, CNN, Acosta offers a never-before-reported account of what it’s like to be the President’s most hated correspondent. Acosta goes head-to-head with the White House, even after Trump supporters have threatened his life with words as well as physical violence.

From the hazy denials and accusations meant to discredit the Mueller investigation, to the president’s scurrilous tweets, Jim Acosta is in the eye of the storm while reporting live to millions of people across the world. After spending hundreds of hours with the revolving door of White House personnel, Acosta paints portraits of the personalities of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner and more. Acosta is tenacious and unyielding in his public battle to preserve the First Amendment and #RealNews.

I spy Trump supporters, judging by the comments here. Obviously I can't wait for my copy to arrive and I know that like all of Acosta's work it will be excellent.

“Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts” - Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Despite what some people would tell you, journalists are some of the most friendliest people you can meet. You just have to show them respect.

Well-written! No flights of fancy, no twisting of reality, NO FAKE NEWS! Only, I wish it had been footnoted, so doubters would know where to go to check up Mr. Acosta's statements. Not a huge flaw for those of us who have been paying attention the past few years, though.

factual account on the dangers of covering the Trump presidency. The challenges of speaking truth to power and the perils if asking the president hard questions to get the truth on the record. What is happening in The White House needs to get out to the American public. Jim Acosta fights for freedom of the press every day. Thank God he is there shining a light on current events. A clear view of the threats to our democracy now at hand is crucial. Thank you Jim Costa for your courage in reporting real news. Thank standing up for freedom of the press. This book is a wake up call to all Americans to be vigilant and to unite as one nation wary of despots that loom and threaten as they try to devide us. Thank you Jim! Keep on pushing and challenging. BRAVO GREAT BOOK
