CNN is a dumpster fire. We all understand that. Try turning it on and watching for even just a few minutes. Odds are you won’t be able to do it. There’s no journalistic integrity there whatsoever. It’s just Trump bashing 24/7.
CNN is having an especially hard time covering the whole border wall situation. You probably saw Acosta’s embarrassing gaffe on Thursday. That’s pretty much been par for the course for CNN. In fact, they are in trouble yet again on Friday for inviting a local news crew to report on the border and then cancelling when they found out that news crew believes in the effectiveness of the wall.
From The Hill:
A San Diego television station on Thursday said that CNN had asked for a “local view” and then “declined to hear from us” after past reports from the station showed that a border wall was effective.
“Thursday morning, CNN called the KUSI Newsroom asking if one of our reporters could give them a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown,” a report by KUSI, an independent station in San Diego that began airing in 1982, begins.
“KUSI offered our own Dan Plante, who has reported dozens of times on the border, including one story from 2016 that was retweeted by former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, and posted on DrudgeReport.com,” it continues while linking to a border fence tour report.
“We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work,” it concludes. “We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it.”
CNN has tried to deny it but they are struggling to come up with a reasonable excuse.
Another day another embarrassment for CNN.
