After the election, CNN shrieked for weeks that “fake news” was to blame for the downfall of Hillary Clinton. Of course, “fake news” was a code word for conservative news which led to an all-out assault on news that contradicted liberal talking points.
One YMCA believes that CNN is fake news and has made the choice to ban it from their television sets. According to WBBM-TV, the Valparaiso Family YMCA in Valparaiso, Indiana, decided to turn off CNN for a couple days after Donald Trump had a tiff with CNN’s Jim Acosta. If you remember the minor scuffle was about CNN publishing a fake article that was riddled with errors. The article was supposed to prove that Trump was a sexual pervert which had been published by BuzzFeed.
During the heated exchange, Trump said,
“No, not you, your organization is terrible. Quiet. Quiet,” Trump told Acosta during the exchange. “Don’t be rude. Don’t be rude. Don’t. Be. Rude. I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”
For the Valparaiso family, that was all they needed to turn CNN off in their workout rooms. They released a statement that said, “In order to eliminate perceived political bias associated with national news outlets, the Valparaiso Family YMCA will only be showing local news channels in the future.”
There were some people that agreed with the families decision to turn off CNN, but there are others that do not agree with it. “To me, it’s blatant censorship that I find very surprising,” YMCA member Greg Quartucci said, according to WBBM. “The timing of this was very peculiar because I think it was basically a day or two after Mr. Trump claimed that CNN was fake news … I think they switched to the cooking channel.”
For years, people have been saying that the mainstream media has been bought and paid for by liberals. This should come as no surprise to people that finally, after years of being told conservatives were horrible people we are hitting back. The days of liberals running the show is now over and it is now time that both sides are equally heard.
