A New York Times bestseller.

From CNN’s veteran Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, an explosive, first-hand account of the dangers he faces reporting on the current White House while fighting on the front lines in President Trump’s war on truth. 

In Mr. Trump’s campaign against what he calls “Fake News,” CNN Chief White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta, is public enemy number one. From the moment Mr. Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, he has attacked the media, calling journalists “the enemy of the people.”

Acosta presents a damning examination of bureaucratic dysfunction, deception, and the unprecedented threat the rhetoric Mr. Trump is directing has on our democracy. When the leader of the free world incites hate and violence, Acosta doesn’t back down, and he urges his fellow citizens to do the same.

At Mr. Trump’s most hated network, CNN, Acosta offers a never-before-reported account of what it’s like to be the President’s most hated correspondent. Acosta goes head-to-head with the White House, even after Trump supporters have threatened his life with words as well as physical violence.

From the hazy denials and accusations meant to discredit the Mueller investigation, to the president’s scurrilous tweets, Jim Acosta is in the eye of the storm while reporting live to millions of people across the world. After spending hundreds of hours with the revolving door of White House personnel, Acosta paints portraits of the personalities of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner and more. Acosta is tenacious and unyielding in his public battle to preserve the First Amendment and #RealNews.

    One of the best audiobooks I have ever bought!! Jim Acosta brings to light his journey navigating thru the Trump’s turnstile of Press Secretaries as well as the circus that is showcased at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in DC ... It’s insightful, well researched and reflects the professionalism that he brings to his job every day !! A true journalist!!

    Jim Acosta is a disgrace to journalism and is a one-sided bully reporter and will never account for anything, an absolutely awful read of lies and distain for the POTUS.

  • Disappointed

    By Lt read
    I really like Jim Acosta....and was looking fwd to the book. But....if you have been keeping up with trump and his constant war on the press. ..You prob already know all of this. ....just a written account of what we’ve seen over the past 3 years of trump ...and his lies and people who lie for him. ... their crazy lies and attacks. Book barely even mentions Sarah Sanders. ...And she constantly insulted Acosta’s intelligence and Defamation of his character....was he afraid of what trump would do to him.? Then why even write a book Disappointed. I had seen most of these events happen on the news. Don’t expect any bomb shells. Or behind the scenes.... we all know trump hates anyone who disagrees with him. Or ask real questions...that’s all this book tells. What we already knew...
