TV station backs off accusation that CNN played politics

12 Janvier, 2019, 19:22 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

KUSI co-Anchor Sandra Maas explained that there really is no debate in San Diego over the efficacy of the wall.

The San Diego-based TV station made the revelation in its news bulletin on Thursday night, when it also posted a detailed explanation of the events on its website. The network added it thought Plante best suited for the job, as one of its stories had been published on DrudgeReport.com and retweeted by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

U.S. President Donald Trump walked out of his negotiating meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday - "I said bye-bye", he tweeted- as efforts to end the 19-day partial government shutdown fell into deeper disarray over his demand for billions of dollars to build a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border.

KUSI claims it directed CNN toward Dan Plante, one of its journalists who has covered the topic of a border wall extensively in the past.

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.

Networks like CNN often change coverage plans at the last moment with no specific agenda.

4th flu death of the season occurs in Indiana
Three people have died from the flu in ME so far this season, according to the state's Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Health officials in both countries say it's not too late to get a flu vaccine to reduce the risk of contracting the virus.

Steve Cohen, KUSI's news director, said he told CNN that it might not want Plante because his reporting has concluded that a border wall there has worked well, and that such a conclusion might not fit the cable network's "narrative" against the wall.

The station, KUSI-TV, reported that someone from CNN called the KUSI newsroom for a local perspective of the fiery debate centered on the U.S. -Mexico border. "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", KUSI's Mike McKinnon III reports.

CNN maintains that the planned segment with KUSI was dropped for unrelated reasons, as "happens many times every day" in the news business. "This is a non story".
