Jim Acosta continues to harshly criticize Fox News on his new weekend show on CNN.
On Saturday, Acosta took on the network's coverage of so-called "cancel culture."
Acosta covered the right-wing network's panic over Snow White, Dr. Seuss, and Mr. Potato Head being "canceled."
He responded to an outrageous clip of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) by saying, "Senator, this is a Wendy's."
"Either way, this is faux outrage. It feels like it's coming off an assembly line, you might say at a factory. But here's the thing, the same far right voices railing against cancel culture, they love to cancel, silence, harass, and banish anyone who won't pucker up and show some love to Donald Trump's 'Big Lie' about the 2020 election," he explained.
"Forget Snow White, it's the cancel cult of Trump that really bites," Acosta said. "Wake up!"

The role right-wing media media played in convincing gullible Trump supporters that he did not lose the election was on full display in a CNN interview broadcast on Saturday.
CNN's Donie O'Sullivan interviewed two Trump supporters in The Villages, a Florida retirement community.
"You guys both genuinely believe the election was stolen," O'Sullivan said. "I mean, that's — if you believe that that's true..."
"Isn't that horrible," the man replies. "Is it horrible that we would even be in the situation to even think that?"
"But it's false," O'Sullivan noted.
"No it is not," the woman falsely claimed.
She then repeated debunked conspiracy theories. After the reporter noted her claims had been debunked, the woman said that couldn't possible be true.
"It has not, I watched it on TV," she argued.
