Descripción

From CNN’s veteran Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, an explosive firsthand 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 wish he would've spent this much time on building a legitimate media career. Huge wasted talent of the frozen meat packing industry was wasted at CNN. Wish you better, Jim.

    I knew that Trump’s war on the press was poisoning a certain population (read Trumpers, racists, Q believers, all those that rioted Jan 6th) but didn’t realize how deep it went and the number of those affected. Although it became more apparent in Cheeto’s last year of reign. I’m so glad that Jim Acosta told this story and that he and CNN stood up for journalists everywhere. To cut through all the bullsh*t spewed by the press office at the WH and the press secretaries that toted Trump’s load of crap and, who got increasingly worse with each new secretary, Jim proved himself to be a man of great character and resilience. It was also a special treat to have Mr. Acosta narrate his work. It gave credence and emotion to the narrative. I found a number of passages prophetic keeping in mind that the book was released prior to some of that President’s most egregious behaviour along with that of his cronies. The turn that the GOP has taken in the last four years should be a death knell for the party but, unfortunately, it seems to have been empowering them for the most part. It’s a sad day for the party that once was a formidable organization. Now they are pathetic and dangerous.

    Jim is nothing more than a crybaby who honestly needs to be removed from being a reporter due to the lies he spreads.

    Jim Acosta's writing is akin to Fidel Castro's ideology that inspired him to overthrow the Cuban government in the late 1950s. Like Fidel, his ideology would have the United States become a banana republic a la Cuba. Cuba was known as the Pearl of the Caribean, boasting the highest income per capita in Latin America and home to many of Americas shining corporations, including textile, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and research that fueled a vibrant economy and a prosperous life for the Cuban people, however Castro saw this progress as evil and decided he would overthrow the government and make it better, 61 years later Castros Cuba is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. And now Jim "Fidelito" Acosta wants the same thing to happen here, just like Castro he is a Socialist hell bent on destroying the American way of life, I say hell no to Jim Acosta.

    What an amazing story. So well written. I was the edge of my seat the entire time. Pity Acosta didn’t write this book after 2020 to hear what really happened during the Covid blunders

    Fake news is so dull. Trump is not very clever, Trump has only the truth, so this fight is tough. But evil cannot win.

    I’m a Newsy so I enjoyed this book Was frightened however by the threat of democracy and shamed coming from a military family. How Did This Evil Man Come To Power? For the first time I had relatives down South( the Good Old Boys) vote for the first time in their adult lives. Yes crawled down from the deer stand and voted against the “ ordained “ candidate and instead voted for this Evil person. I pray this racist will wear handcuffs someday. Let us not forget what he did to tarnish ALL of Us!

    This is a well researched and comprehensive look at the presidential election of 2016 and the role Russia played in it. While watching the news every day has provided me with a great deal of insights into this topic, reading books such as Miller's helps put it all together. There is no question in my mind that Russia used a variety of methods to disrupt out electoral process and to put Donald Trump in the White House to benefit themselves. We are in a frightening time in our country's history and those who choose to bury their heads in the sand need to sit down and read a book as this one to truly understand why there needs to be some major changes, especially a new president in 2020.

    This book, written by a Washington Post reporter, is about everything the Russians did in the 2016 election, Although much of the information in the book has been reported in the newspaper, the book puts everything in context, and provides analysis and more detail. Seeing everything laid out so clearly is bone-chilling, all the more so when it is set forth so logically and clearly, rather than in the snippets and bits and pieces of the daily news reports. If you read this book and are not convinced that the country is in deep trouble, you are being willfully blind.This is one of the best books I've read on this subject, connecting all the fragments, as we teeter from one crisis to the other (forgetting prior crises as new ones arise). The book confronts us with just how unprecedented and horrific these past few years have been.

    Greg Miller’s “The Apprentice” (what a great title!) is a well-done telling of the Trump-Russia investigation through August 2018; Miller is a national security reporter for the Washington Post. It covers everything in its 394 pages including Comey’s firing, the Wikileaks, Mueller investigation, Trump-Putin meetings, Sessions recusal, Russians at the White House, and concludes with Helsinki. And that’s it’s biggest problem. Most of the readers who are interested enough in these topics have probably followed along quite closely with the events as they unfolded and will find too little that is new here. There are no bombshells. Perhaps a sprinkling of interesting insights and asides, but that’s it. In Woodward’s “Fear”, I found the author’s comments about Rob Porter to be very interesting, and a bit of new news. Consequently, my opinion of his professional contributions to the President and to the country turned 180 degrees. There were similar revelations for me in “The Apprentice” of two officials that were almost as surprising for this reader. Miller mentions in passing the number of key investigations in which disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok played a key role – the Richard Reid shoe bombing attempt, the Snowden defection, the Steele Dossier, 9/11; clearly and sadly this was an important guy, a lead investigator for the most critical cases – and the FBI lost a key asset with his termination. The other is Rod Rosenstein. Again, nothing new here, but as Miller summarizes some high points (creation of the Special Counsel for the Russia investigation) and low points (documenting reasons for Comey’s firing) one is left with an unclear picture of who RR really is and what he stands for, especially with the recent events surrounding RR’s comments about Presidential incompetency and the 25th amendment. There are interesting passages where Miller steps back and looks at the big picture. My favorite is at pages 361-65 where he first builds a case about the volume of Russian placed messages in social networks. The numbers are staggering. A data journalism professor estimated that the number of times content from all Russian pages showed up in people’s feeds could reach into the billions. Miller acknowledges that that there were other critical factors as well including Comey’s handling of the email investigation and Clinton’s candidate failings. But he goes on to conclude “……Russia’s pro-Trump propaganda flooded into the Facebook and Twitter feeds of tens of millions of voters in an election decided by fewer than 80,000 ballots across just three states. To believe that Russian interference was immaterial required a willful ignorance of the power of such pervasive messaging – or an aversion to an uncomfortable truth”. So, “The Apprentice” does have some moments, but the conclusion is not one of them. The Helsinki meeting between Trump and Putin seems placed to build up to something but again there is nothing new here; it felt skimpy. The conclusion is a bit of a yawner and given far too little space and analysis. Miller lays out the most likely ‘theories of the case’ including Putin must have something on Trump, or there must be still undiscovered financial entanglements, and then finally the most likely - a scenario that has “always been hiding right in front of us” (page 393)…… Not recommended.
