CNN’s Jim Acosta, one of the worst journalists on the planet, was given a thorough reaming online, being called a “narcissist” after posting up a photograph of himself getting the coronavirus vaccine while he was rocking a t-shirt touting the stories he’s covered in 2020.
This, folks, is just pure ego. It’s quite unbecoming.
“My goodness this t-shirt is quite the way of screaming that you’re a certifiable narcissist,” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck tweeted Monday. “Jim Acosta has to be in the top ten of the most self-centered journalists and Americans period.”

His comment came in response to Acosta posting a photo of himself on Monday wearing a shirt sold on the White House Correspondents’ Association website, while encouraging the public to receive the coronavirus vaccine.
“In 2020, I covered the impeachment trial & a caucus night (that lasted a week) & the primaries & the covid pandemic & the economic crash & the racial justice protests & Lafayette Square & so many rallies & the death of RBG & the president’s 1AM coronavirus diagnosis & a Supreme Court confirmation & an election night (that lasted a week) & things by tweet & the recounts & the presidential transition & I have a commemorative shirt to prove it,” the shirt reads.
Just the shot in the arm I needed. The latest studies show the Covid-19 vaccines are highly effective. Please do your part to end this pandemic. Get your shot! pic.twitter.com/QUYCt3sZ74

And here’s the response the shirt got on social media:
Someone should probably inform Jim that he's contributing to vaccine refusal rates by continuing to make everything an obnoxious self-flattering spectacle https://t.co/xkRBTByzRk

If you zoom in closely, it says: “I tried super hard to journalism but all I got was this lousy T-Shirt.”
