A San Diego news station has accused CNN of asking for a local perspective on the border wall debate but backing off when the response didn’t fit CNN’s anti-Trump agenda.

This is just another example that CNN is very biased against President Trump. KUSI, a news station out of San Diego 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,” a KUSI anchor Anna Laurel said on Thursday.

The McKinnon Broadcasting-owned KUSI is an independent station that is not an affiliate of a major broadcast network. It accused CNN of the agenda-driven maneuver both on air and on its verified Twitter account, which has over 62,000 followers. The network explained that it offered the services of veteran reporter Dan Plante, who has reported that the wall is effective.

“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 the Texas border the president visited,” Laurel said. “They didn’t like what they heard from us.”

KUSI digital content manager Mike McKinnon III wrote on the network’s website, “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.”

If a news outlet is truly reporting all aspects of a news story they should report different perspectives. CNN has one narrative in all its reports anti-Trump. All their reports are misleading. In response to this claim by KUSI CNN said:

“That happens many times every single day,” the spokesperson told Fox News. “We did, however, book a reporter from KUSI for a story on immigration and the border wall on CNN in November. This is a non-story.”
