    For border story, CNN wants a local station's reporter for "local facts"... Until they hear them.

    During their newscast last night, local San Diego TV station KUSI called out CNN for their one-sided, dishonest BS. This is just another example proving yet again, that CNN has no journalistic integrity, is in the tank for the political left, and can't be trusted to report the truth to the American people.

    From The Hill:

    San Diego TV station: CNN declined our 'local view' because of reports on wall effectiveness
    BY JOE CONCHA - 01/11/19 08:05 AM EST


    EXCERPT


    "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," a report by KUSI, an independent station in San Diego that began airing in 1982, begins.


    "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," it continues while linking to a border fence tour report.


    "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," it concludes. "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."
    I'm not a fan of CNN being labeled "fake news", but when you hear crap like this... well...

    IOW, no actual evidence of any bias. Just someones belief of bias is now proof of bias

    I believe that KUSIs belief of bias is based on nothing more than its own anti-CNN bias

    Can't be true. Must be a misunderstanding. Or not enough time in the segment. Or failure to communicate. Or something.
    You can't be suggesting CNN has an agenda.
    You've never heard them say it's a manufactured crisis have you? You have?

    Speaking of bias:

    News Channel” KUSI.com | San Diego News | Weather | ASR | Turko | PPR | GMSD - KUSI News - San Diego, CA Owner: McKinnon Broadcasting. The McKinnon family may have started out on the Democratic side of the political aisle–grampa Clinton Dodson McKinnon was a Congressman and founded the San Diego Journal to compete with the Union-Tribune–but these days they and their TV station are a bastion of Republicanism.

    KUSI is the outlier in local TV news, proudly waving their viewpoints whenever possible. They even been known to take right wing spin and–presto-chango!— turn it into fact.

    A look at the FCC files for 2014 political advertising buys shows just two names: Carl DeMaio and Californians Against Higher Health Care Costs (CAHC), an insurance company funded campaign opposing Proposition 45. (Prop 45 is a measure on the November ballot requiring insurance companies to justify and explain their rates, placing them under the regulatory oversight of the state’s Insurance Commissioner.)

    Unlike most other independent TV stations, KUSI has built its programming around local news, more than 50 hours a week. It’s safe to say their newscasts are grounded in the alternative reality that defines GOP politics these days.

    My favorite anecdotal evidence of this slant comes from reviewers on Yelp.com:

    KUSI only success is in making the local Fox News team look like polished professionals. It’s a hair above a Public Access show, so view it with the same fleeting curiosity you’d give the two-headed calf at the County Fair. At least the calf can’t talk.

    Russell S (Gave the station a 4 star rating)
    My wife and I watch KUSI news in the morning. I find some of their segments to be great but some of their political interviews seem to me to be very biased. For a while my wife thought city councilman Carl DeMaio was a member of the KUSI staff. I finally explained to her that He is just a blustery, loud mouth politician that likes to hear himself talk.

    Looks like San Diego has their own little Fox wannabe.

    It would take a rather simple experiment to show one way or the other - remove about a mile of border "wall" between Tijuana and San Diego and see what happens.

    A physical barrier works but we all know that. Only folks that hate president Trump are saying it
    does not. Why.... because president Trump asked for the money to fund a more secure Southern border.

    San Diego Fence Provides Lessons in Border Control
    April 6, 2006

    https://www.npr.org/templates/story/...toryId=5323928

    Before the fence was built, all that separated that stretch of Mexico from California was a single strand of cable that demarcated the international border.

    Back then, Border Patrol agent Jim Henry says he was overwhelmed by the stream of immigrants who crossed into the United States illegally just in that sector.

    "It was an area that was out of control," Henry says. "There were over 100,000 aliens crossing through this area a year."

    Today, Henry is assistant chief of the Border Patrol's San Diego sector. He says apprehensions here are down 95 percent, from 100,000 a year to 5,000 a year, largely because the single strand of cable marking the border was replaced by double -- and in some places, triple -- fencing.

    The first fence, 10 feet high, is made of welded metal panels. The second fence, 15 feet high, consists of steel mesh, and the top is angled inward to make it harder to climb over. Finally, in high-traffic areas, there's also a smaller chain-link fence. In between the two main fences is 150 feet of "no man's land," an area that the Border Patrol sweeps with flood lights and trucks, and soon, surveillance cameras.

    You’re conflating a pot calling the kettle black thread with a pro/con Trump wall thread. There are plenty of those for you to argue semantics and biases in.

    If walls don't work why does he have walls around his house or a fence or a locked gate or door.

    if barriers are so useless why do people constantly use them for such things?
