When most people talk about CNN, the topic turns immediately to “Fake News,” which many believe the network specializes in. The “news” network has finally delivered some good, accurate news for the public to consume.
The Hill reports that CNN has decided they will boycott this week’s White House Christmas party. The tension between the President and the network, known for posting false stories, has grown over the President Trump’s first year in office. They decided to post an official statement, which was shared by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
CNN has gone toe-to-toe with President Trump and Sarah Huckabee Sanders on many occasions. Their latest jaded response does not come as a surprise.
A CNN spokesperson told The Hill: “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as invited guests.”
“We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants,” they added. In other words, their stubborn and childlike reaction is a result of being unable to handle the critique of their “work,” which is often based on falsehoods and innuendo.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders proudly announced CNN’s refusal and declared “Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN” with an attached Politico link explaining the story.
Normally, the White House Christmas party is viewed as a casual event. It occurs every year and gives reporters the chance to talk to members of the administration.
The President has made it known that he is against organizations that promote “fake news,” characterized by unverifiable sources and heavily biased reporting. Many argue that he is trying to interfere with their freedom, as organizations like CNN suggest. Instead, the President is trying to expose what these organizations are attempting to do to the general public. They can continue reporting as they do, but the President is informing the public that they are consuming politically biased news, sliced and diced to fit the Leftist agenda.
Last Monday, the President tweeted that there should be a contest for all networks, except Fox News, to determine which is “the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me).”
The fact that he implied he was their favorite president was enough to set the media into a frenzy, as Greg Gutfeld of The Five pointed out Tuesday.
President Trump has called out CNN after their boycott of the annual White House Christmas party. Is CNN management being jaded in their decision to opt out of this holiday tradition?
President Trump went on to slap CNN by saying that they are not good for this country. In fact, he believes they represent the US to the rest of the world “poorly.” In reality, people from other countries don’t typically have good things to say about CNN either.
Many know that there are stories published and broadcasted by CNN that are blatantly false, and the network is guilty of misleading the public. Instead of admitting their flaws and working to better their journalistic presentation, they choose the path of resistance — resisting President Trump, that is.
They will likely not give up anytime soon, but now, more are becoming aware of their flaws.
