CNN asked KUSI an independent TV station in San Diego to provide them with a local assessment of the effectiveness of the local San Diego border wall. KUSI was happy to oblige since they previously reported on it. When CNN heard that Trump was correct and the border wall worked they refused to hear what the station discovered and reported previously.
Anna Laurel, a KUSI anchor reporter, said “As a sign of the times in this debate on the shutdown, CNN asked if KUSI would provide a reporter to offer our local view of the debate, especially to learn if the wall works in San Diego.” Hearing that the wall was effective in preventing illegal aliens from illegally entering the nation CNN ejected hearing about what the independent station had discovered. “Knowing this, CNN declined to have us on their programs, which often present the wall as not required…” Lauren said.
Her words were reinforced by the station’s digital content manager Mike McKinnon II. On the network’s website he wrote “We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them most Border Patrol agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work.” McKinnon went on to say that KUSi has “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.” CNN called it a non-story.
This may be the reason Jim Acosta, CNN chief White House correspondent, gave his own border wall assessment. He reported there was “no sign of the national emergency that the president was talking about….” He was correct because the barrier did stop illegal aliens from even trying to get over the wall. None were in sight! He pronounced it was “tranquil”.
CNN has shown that it is the propaganda arm of the progressive left and the Democrats. It offers a very jaundice view of the news. It must conform to the far left rhetoric of Schumer and Pelosi or it will not be reported.
Dan Gainor, vice-president of Media Research Center, told Fox News “If I have to choose who is telling the truth, KUSI or CNN, that’s easy. I’ve never seen KUSI lie. I’ve seen CNN do it tons of times. They hype the issues they want and suppress those they oppose. Look at the border. They send Jim Acosta to Texas to try and undermine the case for the wall. But they don’t blanket their network with visits to the families of victims of illegal immigrant crime. If the media did that, American would swarm Washington demanding a wall. Journalism, especially at CNN, is made up of thousands of actions by overwhelmingly liberal staff. Yet, we’re supposed to believe the final result. Why?”
Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary, had the final word about this situation. After retweeting Acosta’s border video, she wrote “When I went with President@ real Donald Trump to the border today I never imagined @Acosta would be there doing our job for us and so clearly explaining why WALLS WORK. Thanks Jim!”
