Watch: Jim Acosta Shames Fox News For ‘Whipping’ Trump Fans Into Anti-CNN Frenzy

After being attacked by a group of Donald Trump supporters in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta said Fox News is partly to blame for their opinionated primetime shows.

On Wednesday, Acosta sat down with HLN’s S.E. Cupp to talk about what he experienced at the Trump rally on Tuesday.

“Honestly, it felt like we weren’t in America anymore,” he said. “I don’t know how to put it any more plainly than that. Americans should not be treating their fellow Americans in this way.”

“He is whipping these crowds up into a frenzy to the point where they really want to come after us,” Acosta said.

Acosta went on to claim that Trump’s supporters get their skewed opinions by watching Fox News.

He continued: “My sense of it is that these opinions these folks have at these rallies, they’re shaped by what they see in the primetime hours of Fox News and what they hear from some conservative news outlets that just sort of give them this daily diet of what they consider to be terrible things we do over here at CNN.”

“It’s very unfortunate. But it’s a pitting of American against American and honestly, it needs to stop,” he concluded.
