CNN and other mainstream media sources have the right to say whatever they want, even if they want to publish negative and bias against President Trump and his followers.
CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta reported a rally for CNN in in Tampa, Florida, on July 31, Acosta was heckled by Trump supporters who yelled F**k the media and CNN is fake news, one man also gave Jim the middle finger.
Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy. pic.twitter.com/IhSRw5Ui3R

But according to his co-worker April Ryan, his life was in danger.
“That’s a serious moment and a serious place. And Jim Acosta’s life, in my opinion, was in jeopardy that night,” she said during an on-air segment with CNN’s Don Lemon.
Truth is, Acosta’s life was never in danger, it’s only okay to protest against opposition when it comes to CNN, not against the media, some reports even prove Americans don’t trust the media anymore.
April has been critical of President Trump since he started entering the scene in 2015, she’s been known to publish biased and misleading information, something defined by the President as ‘Fake News!’
Thanks to their front running hosts, the network’s ratings are dwindling, CNN ranked 23rd in July.
