Jim Acosta - The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In Trump’s vilification of the media as “enemies of the people,” no network has received harsher treatment than CNN, with Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent, bearing the brunt of the attacks. But rather than forcing him to back down, Trump’s rants—and even the threat of physical violence from the president’s supporters—have renewed Acosta’s dedication to free speech and the integrity of journalism. In this vivid account of reporting the truth under hostile conditions, Acosta gives a detailed inside look at the administration, showing how Trump behaves in different situations, assessing the damage of his manipulation and rhetoric, and offering sharp portraits of figures including Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner, and more.
