This time they asked San Diego KUSI's independent television channel from a local vision of the effectiveness of the border wall, but when they would not like the local view, they opted for a change of scenery.
They were probably expecting a story fueled by anti-Trump rhetoric, supplemented by overuse and the ever-popular popular popular discourse on the "fabricated crisis". Or maybe they wanted someone else to come on their network and carelessly trivialize the crime and tragedy suffered by families at the hands of illegal aliens in criminal offenses because our government failed to secure our border.
However, what KUSI had announced would have been another perspective, a medium used to call journalism
It was an offer that CNN was very happy to refuse.
According to KUSI, CNN refused their report once it had discovered that the station's previous reports actually described the effectiveness of the boundary wall. Yes, you read correctly.
KUSI tweeted: "On Thursday morning, @CNN called the KUSI Newsroom to ask if a reporter could give him a local overview of the debate surrounding the border wall and the closure of the government. After informing them of our past reports, they refused to hear us. "
The journalist KUSI quotes is Dan Plante, who has written several stories on the border. One of his 2016 reports was published in the Drudge report and tweeted by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
In his 2016 report, Plante spoke to Chris Harris of the National Border Patrol Council. In his report, Harris told him that the barriers are effective in conjunction with the agents and the infrastructure. Harris also told him that illegal immigrants would tell agents that the reason they were crossing our southern border was because ... wait ... former President Obama said they could come. Yes, you read well too.
You do not have to be an investigative reporter to connect the points and understand why CNN refused to talk to Mr. Plante.
On the KUSI website, Mike McKinnon III, The Channel's Digital Content Manager wrote, "We believe CNN has turned down a report from KUSI because we've informed them that most of the border patrol agents we have Spoken told us that the barrier actually worked. "
McKinnon was nice. According to the Border Patrol, the illegal immigrants thought they had received a permanent invitation from President Obama and that is why many even bothered to make the trip. CNNN was not going to live with that.
McKinnon went on to say that border patrol officers have repeatedly said that barriers help to stop drug and arms trafficking in the country, as well as people who come here illegally.
In a statement to Fox News, a CNN spokesperson called the incident "non-story".
"It happens several times a day," said the spokesman at Fox News. "We did, however, book a KUSI reporter for an article on immigration and the CNN Border Wall in November. This is a non-article. "
So are the presidents telling them not to come here illegally, apparently.
You can use some news, CNN. Instead, the network called it "non-history" and adopted the "nothing to see" approach. Jim Acosta did this week when he went to the southern border to try to prove that there was no national emergency and that the border crisis was "fabricated".
While he stood near a part of the border that had a wall he called "quiet". You can cut the irony with a knife.
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi's "Green Acres" and American Gothic memes paused while the murals on Acosta's quiet border became viral.
White Sarah Sanders, Press Secretary for the House of Representatives, spoke to Twitter and thanked Acosta for proving that "the walls were working". President Trump reacted and made fun of him by saying, "Dear Diary."
CNN's new slogan is "The facts first" - after years of being called "The most reliable name in the news". No matter how they rebel, it does not make them more credible.
CNN, with my New York, in the mainstream media, intends to see President Trump fail more than he wants to see America secure.
In the words of a former San Diego presenter: Stay classy CNN.
