“I was horrified by [Acosta],” Wallace said at a Columbia University event in New York City on Tuesday night. “It’s not our job to get in fights with presidents. It’s not our job to one-up presidents. It’s our job to report on presidents.”

“But to the degree we have responded to his attacks on us with attacks or advocacy in kind, there’s a huge mistake, and I think adds to people questioning the credibility of the media,” the “Fox News Sunday” host said.

Acosta told Trump during a press conference in New Delhi that CNN’s “record on delivering the truth is a lot better” than his “sometimes” after the president broached a recent report on Russian election interference that CNN later walked back.
