San Diego station claims CNN asked for local border wall perspective, but backed off when response favored Trump

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

“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.”

McKinnon added that KUSI has “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.”

A CNN spokesperson dismissed the incident as a "non story."

"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."

Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News that “this kind of manipulation is what journalists have been doing for decades and CNN is a master at it.” Ironically, the accusation came as CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was mocked by everyone from media watchdogs to President Trump himself for accidently supporting the argument that border barriers improve security...

...“If I have to choose who is telling the truth, KUSI or CNN, that's easy. I've never seen KUSI lie. I've seen CNN do it tons of times,” Gainor said. “They hype the issues they want and suppress those they oppose. Look at the border. They send Jim Acosta to Texas to try and undermine the case for the wall. But they don't blanket their network with visits to the families of victims of illegal immigrant crime. If the media did that, Americans would swarm Washington demanding a wall.”...

Not surprised.

I do hundreds of media interviews a year on political issues. I can't tell you how many times I'm spent tons of time with a new outlet only to see them not use anything I had offered because my perspective did not match the message they wanted to present.

Of course a physical barrier works. I simply don't understand why liberals won't acknowledge this simple and proven fact.

Is that discouraging for you or just a known and accepted part of your profession?

My observation is the reasons are: Trump resistance, pander to the base, and influx of new Dem voters.

If the Trump factor were somehow removed from the discourse do you think common sense and level heads would prevail or are the Dems too deeply entrenched in catering to the hispanic base and the promise of new and multiple voters in the form of hispanic immigrants both legal and illegal?

At this point I really can't tell.

Would that there were a way to put this up for national referendum (voter ID required).

So you are saying it is More difficult to scale a 20-foot wall or dig under it- than walk across wide open ground?

Interesting concept.

I guess that would explain why so many people have fences protecting their property.
