CNN’s Jim Acosta, reporting live from the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, told his colleagues that it was a “pitiful display” to see Klaus Schwab, the head of the WEF, acknowledge media bias against President Trump.

During his remarks in a Q&A session at the global forum, Trump commented on the bias of the press, criticizing their coverage. Acosta must be used to the commentary from the president, but he took exception to agreement expressed by the head of the WEF.

“It was rather remarkable to hear the founder of this WEF also take jabs at the press and say that the president is the victim of biased interpretations and misconceptions,” Acosta said. “That was a fairly pitiful display.”

The CNN reporter also expressed disappointment that the largely elite crowd at the forum did not protest Schwab’s remarks.

“That’s the environment we live in with President Trump,” Acosta concluded.

CNN has been forced to correct several Trump-related stories, including a major error published in December regarding Trump’s son and correspondence with WikiLeaks. The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and NBC News all contradicted CNN’s original reporting, forcing the cable news giant to offer a correction.
