Does CNN Really Have a ‘Cosmopolitan Bias’?
Acosta asked Miller how an immigration policy based on skills comports with the line from The New Colossus. (You know the one: “Give me your tired, your poor/
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”) The poem “doesn’t say anything about speaking English or being able to be a computer programmer,” Acosta said. Miller first observed that the poem was added to the Statue of Liberty much later than its construction, a parry on both the potent symbolism of the poem and the policy at hand. Then, in an act of willful misreading and pearl-clutching, Miller seized on an opening in Acosta’s line of reasoning.

Jim Acosta is why people hate journalists. What's funny? Other journalists applaud him—that's how disconnected from reality they are.
