CNN was caught red-handed pushing fake news about the border wall
CNN is a dumpster fire.
The fake news network draws less than half the viewers of Fox News because they consistently lie to their viewers.
And now a local news station revealed just how CNN produces its fake news.
CNN reportedly contacted local San Diego, California news station KUSI for some backstory on the effectiveness of the border wall in San Diego.
This is common practice for a national network to get the facts from local boots on the ground.
But CNN didn’t like what they heard.
So they refused to run with the story.
Reporters from KUSI broke the bad news to CNN that the wall is actually effective.
The Hill reports:
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.
Immigration, the partial government shutdown and President Trump’s proposed border wall have all been topics dominating the cable news landscape since the shutdown began three weeks ago.
“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.”
The lengths that CNN will go to peddle fake news is despicable.
They claim to report the facts, but this story proves that they manipulate their stories to push their biased narrative.
