According to KUSI in San Diego, CNN reached out to the news network for a local viewpoint on the wall and didn’t like what they heard.
They offered for CNN to talk to Dan Plante, their boots on the ground reporter who covers the wall, has been reporting the story for years and even had his work recognized by former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich.
CNN declined and they believe it’s because they told the network “that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work.”
Watch the video from their Thursday night newscast below.
Thursday morning, @CNN called the KUSI Newsroom asking if a reporter could give them a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown. After we informed them about our past reports, they declined to hear from us.
