Little Jimmy Acosta is taking heat from Fox News rival Chris Wallace following the CNN White House Correspondent’s heated exchange with President Trump during a press conference in India on Tuesday.

Wallace said he was ‘horrified’ by Acosta’s behavior, adding that the pudgy-faced putz of CNN made a “huge mistake” that “adds to the people questioning the credibility of the media.”

“I was horrified by [Acosta],” Wallace said at a Columbia University event in New York City hosted by the Common Ground Committee 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.”

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 the topic of a recent report on Russia’s election interference that CNN later walked back.

“I worry that the president’s attacks have given too many straight news reporters — not talking about the opinion page or prime time — an excuse or license to cross the line themselves and become players on the field, and I think that is a huge mistake,” Chris Wallace said during a Thursday appearance with New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. “It’s not our role. Our role is to be observers, umpires, fact-checkers, investigators — it’s not to be advocates. It’s not to be opponents.”

“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 added.
