CNN was caught in the act… AGAIN!… attempting not just to REPORT the news, but push its left-wing agenda on Americans.
The network President Donald Trump has repeatedly called out for “very fake news” was busted in its border wall coverage.

CNN asked a local station in San Diego if one of its reporters on the scene could join them live to talk about the situation at the border.
What happened next is an outrage to anyone hoping for honest news.
“KUSI offered our own Dan Plante, who’s reported many times that the wall is not an issue here,” anchor Sandra Maas said the air. “In fact most officials believe it is effective.”
Think CNN liked that? Nope!

It goes against their entire agenda.
“Now knowing this, CNN declined to have us on their programs which often present the wall as not required in other places like the stretch of Texas border that the president visited earlier today,” anchor Anna Laurel said in the same segment. “They didn’t like what they heard from us.”
CNN probably figured the station would never mention the snub.
Not only did the two KUSI anchors call out the network on the air, but the segment went mega-viral.
It got attention from the White House, which called it a “MUST WATCH,” and even from Trump himself:
CNN of course claims it was all an innocent misunderstanding – just the nature of TV and nothing to do with politics.
“As shows take shape, some guests get put into segments,” CNN spokesman Matt Dornic told the San Diego Union Tribune. “Some people don’t end up getting callbacks and sometimes people even get bumped (though that’s not what happened here). It happens all day every day and at every network. It’s how you produce 24 [hours] of live programming. It’s fluid.”
The network said they contacted multiple stations, and booked none of them – as if that’s proof they didn’t single out KUSI.
Or maybe… just maybe… all of those stations on the ground at the border have similar news to report: the wall works.

“Most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work,” KUSI said on its website. “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.”
KUSI conceded that it COULD be the case that CNN just had a change of plans.
“It’s certainly plausible that they didn’t want it for the viewpoint, or they just didn’t want it,” Steve Cohen, KUSI’s news director, told The Associated Press. “Both are plausible conclusions. I made one rather than the other.”
And for good reason, too.
Given the network’s long history of bias against conservatives in general and Trump in particular, Cohen isn’t the only one not buying it.
Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, wrote on Twitter:
CNN isn’t even trying to hide its bias on border security anymore. Yesterday, Acosta’s stunt at the wall backfired and now this.https://t.co/RmW3NbN6HJ

Naturally, in its rush to slam Trump and his plans for a border wall, the network missed a major opportunity to cover real news… and real issues… that have a direct impact both on Americans in the border communities and the immigrants CNN claims to care so much about.
“The issue we face is the migrants and the debate over their treatment,” Maas said on the air.
But why attempt the discuss REAL issues when they can keep attacking Trump?
No wonder the president keeps calling them out for “fake news!”
