CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta had a strange explanation for why he lost his audio and video connections with his studio Tuesday; suggesting the White House may have intentionally cut his live-feed during the President’s joint press conference with Baltic Leaders.
“The president was egging on the president of Latvia to call on a Baltic reporter, not one of the U.S. reporters who were clamoring to get that final que-,” said Acosta before losing the connection.
“I think we’ve re-established communications with Jim Acosta, our chief White House correspondent,” Blitzer said minutes later. “Jim, you were making a point when all of the sudden we lost that connection. Go ahead.”
“That’s right, Wolf. We won’t read into why we lost connection there just a few moments ago,” Acosta said, implying White House officials may have intentionally cut the feed.
