WOW! CNN Defends Decision to Exclude Local Station’s Honest Report on Benefits of a Border Wall from Their Channel!
San Diego’s KUSI News just DESTROYED CNN’s last bit of remaining credibility on Thursday!
CNN asked local San Diego KUSI newsroom for the community’s view on the border wall with Mexico.
KUSI reporter Dan Plante told them it’s not an issue in the community and the current barrier does in fact work!
So CNN buried the story.
They refused to air the report!
On Thursday night KUSI called them out!
Thursday morning, @CNN called the KUSI Newsroom asking if a reporter could give them a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown. After we informed them about our past reports, they declined to hear from us.

On Friday morning CNN defended their decision to nix the truth from their reports.
We called several local stations to book someone for a show. We didn’t end up booking any of them. That happens many times every single day. We did, however, book a reporter from KUSI for a story on immigration and the border wall in November. This is a non story. #factsfirst🍎

Arthur Schwartz says it best:
“Think about the arrogance it must take to lecture another news outlet about what is and isn’t news.”
