CNN‘s Jim Acosta is going to receive the ‘truth to power’ award from the New York Press Club for his anti-Trump antics.
NY Press Club: “We are proud to honor a man such as Jim Acosta, who has proven himself throughout his storied, decades-long career to be a journalist of the utmost integrity. For his unwavering commitment to fact and journalism, we are pleased to add to Jim’s many accolades with the Gabe Pressman ‘Truth to Power’ award.”

The Wrap reported that the award honors “an individual whose body of work challenges the power establishment and/or defends journalists.” The establishment being, the Trump administration of course.
Even though Acosta has been with CNN for many years, he didn’t behave this way towards the Obama administration, as you can see in our NewsBusters archive. In fact, he frequently defended and salivated over President Obama and his policies. So it seems he only speaks “truth to power” when it’s a power he doesn’t politically agree with. More
This award is as useless as the guy that is going to receive it. Just another pat on the back from his lame supporters. Allow me to speak some truth to delusional power. Acosta, you are nothing but a propagandizing DNC hack.
REALLY! BIGGEST JOKE OF ALL TIME. Awards are now totally meaningless.

Much like the Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in his early days in office, having accomplished nothing in that realm. Jim Acosta is getting an award for being a great journalist, with integrity is a joke, which he really is.
