Why does CNN criticize Trump for treating rude reporters the way they SHOULD be treated?

From a CNN article:

"But Trump s verbal assaults on reporters Wednesday revealed a stormier mood. He lambasted CNN s Jim Acosta as "a rude, terrible person," told American Urban Radio Network correspondent April Ryan repeatedly to "sit down," and deemed a query about white nationalism, posed by PBS Newshour reporter Yamiche Alcindor, a "such a racist question."

So telling someone constantly shouting over people out of turn "rude", telling a reporting that keeps standing up and speaking out of turn repeatedly to "sit down", and calling out a race-baiting reporter apparently qualifies as "verbal assault" now? Sounds like it was the reporters who were misbehaving as usual.
