CNN reached out to a local San Diego news station KUSI asking for a “local view” of the debate surrounding the border wall.
But when they didn’t get the anti-wall segment they wanted, CNN scuttled the entire project.
“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,” Mike McKinnon wrote on KUSI’s website.
McKinnon continued: “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.”
“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,” McKinnon added.
“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,” he concluded.
San Diego is one of the most secure parts of the U.S.-Mexico border… but also one of the most heavily-trafficked: the city’s San Ysidro border crossing is the busiest overland border crossing in the world.
CNN, unfortunately, isn’t content to report the facts… instead, they seem to be looking for more ammunition to fuel a phony narrative.
