CNN Reporter Who Accused Trump of Racism Wins Award
The National Association of Hispanic Journalists is giving its 2017 Presidential Award to CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who has emerged this year as a media star for his frequent clashes with the Trump administration.
NAHP will honor Acosta at the Hall of Fame Gala on Sept. 9 in Anaheim, Calif., the group announced Wednesday.
“For the past years, I’ve seen Jim Acosta in action. He’s covered President Obama and President Donald Trump, always pushing both sides to answer the tough questions,” said Brandon Benavides, NAHJ’s president. “As a voice for the people, Acosta is not afraid to hold our elected leaders accountable. Regardless of criticism, he remains focused in a pursuit of truth for our communities.”
